The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
This was by far the Best Trip Ever
How did you discover this activity?
We were looking for pontoon boat rentals on Google so we could visit Shell Island and we ran across TripShock. We found their prices to be way cheaper than anywhere else, and it was within our budget.
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
We booked this pontoon boat rental one month in advance.
Why did you choose this activity?
My wife and I have been to Shell Island before on a pontoon boat about six years ago while she was pregnant with our youngest son, who is six now. So, we wanted to go again since he is older and we also wanted to take our 4 year old daughter who has never
How did you get to the activity location?
We were only about a 20 minute drive away from this location. We were staying at Springhill Suites by Marriott on Front Beach Road in Panama City Beach. A very short car ride and we were there.
What was your experience with the activity's staff?
The staff were amazing, very professional, friendly, and courteous. They helped us load and unload the boat. They also went over the boat better than we did. My sister-in-law left some of her clothes on the boat in one of the storage areas and someone bro
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
What made this memorable to us was how nice the staff was, how much our children enjoyed the boat ride, and how nice the weather was on the Bay and at Shell Island. Our children noticed some birds following behind us while we were heading across the Bay to Shell Island and we let them feed the birds some bread. They were having so much fun throwing little pieces of bread up into the air and watching the birds catch them. They were laughing so hard they were crying.
Once we got to Shell Island, they wanted off the boat immediately. We all got into the water and they were just so happy to be splashing around in the Bay waters that they forgot that the entire ocean was on the other side of the 50 yard island. We told them to come on, that there is something better on the other side, and they were quick to follow. Once we got to where the ocean (Gulf) was visible they started yelling and jumping with excitement. They were so happy playing in the sand, looking for shells, and swimming that my wife and I felt very proud of ourselves for giving them a good fun day at Shell Island. They love the beach and especially the sand. They also love swimming pools! We can never go wrong with anything to do with water and sand with our kids!
This part of the trip was the best that we have had by far. Our first hotel messed our room up so we had to be moved to a different facility, which was a big upgrade. And then a couple days later we had this experience with our pontoon rental and that made our trip worth every penny that we had spent. We will definitely use TripShock for future rentals as they have earned our loyalty. We strongly recommend using TripShock for any rental needs because you will not find a better price or experience in Panama City Beach. Our family is very grateful for TripShock and FUNPCB for the unforgettable experience that we had.
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
We would recommend this pontoon boat rental to any family who has children. This experience will make your child(ren)'s day/week. Our children had nothing but fun once we stepped foot onto this pontoon boat. They looked for dolphins, watched other boats,
