Pontoon rentals

Does anyone know of a place to rent a Pontoon? We are a party of nine and don't know if we should rent two motor boats or a Pontoon. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you!

FANTASEA-- www.fantasea.bm/private-charters/vessels/ --offer a 24', 'pontoon-type' self-drive boat and DREAMCATCHER BOAT RENTALS-- http://dreamcatcherboatrentals.com/index.html --offers a similar sized 'pontoon-type self-drive boat(s).

If you're party is larger, the larger, 'pontoon-type' boats provide more room and walk-around comfort than 13'-17' self-drive skiff...and have the merit of keeping your party together. With nine(9) people...the larger, 'pontoon-type' boat makes a lotta' sense for a day's outing.

i would go for fantasea's 23 foot beachcat pontoon boat. it has a stereo and bathroom and plenty of space for nine people. i believe they cab deliver the boat to waterlot/fairmont southampton and hamilton, but probably for a fee.

We are also doing a jet ski tour. Are gratuities included in the price or do we have to tip the tour guide? If we have to tip how much for each jet ski? Thanks!

grats are not included in the cost of your ride, and you are not required to tip. if you would like to tip, give it directly to your guide.

Any idea how much would be an appropriate tip?

Tipping is the '..black hole..' of travel advice--a lot goes in but nothing useful ever seems to come back out. You can use 10% of the excursion price as a reference...or whatever your usual (more or less) custom/practice dictates.
