Best part of vacation! Nice boats...great owners that made the rental easy and did everything for you to get on and off the boat. Very friendly and very close to crab island. I will use them next time we are back!

Wendy,Tim, and the entire staff did a fantastic job overall
for our pontoon boat rental. Pricing was very fair, incredible
service with loading and unloading boat, and a "can do"
attitude was exhibited by all. We will be renting from them
again on our next trip.

We had decided we were going to rent a pontoon boat before arriving in Destin. We decided to reserve a boat for an all day excursion on June 24th. After reading through other TripAdvisor postings and making a couple of calls, we decided to go with Blue Heron Watersports. It was an excellent decision! Their boats are newer and in great shape. The company is operated by a husband and wife who are extremely helpful. The parking is a little hard to find but they will provide you with excellent directions to get there and the parking is right in front of the boats…so much easier than walking along the harbor to the other companies. Gas is included as part of the cost so you don't have to fill up prior to returning.

We also decided to rent a paddle board for the day. It fits on the boat. We had 5 adults and 6 children on the boat (ages 8-15). There was plenty of room for everyone and our towels, shoes, snacks, cooler, etc. The company provides life jackets and throws on some noodles for floating if you want. The kids loved trying the paddle board and spent a lot of time just floating on it together. The calmer waters of the harbor are an excellent place to learn.

Upon arrival they had several dock hands that were extremely polite and helpful. They helped us load all of our gear from the car to the boat and then helped us unload at the end of the day. They also gave us lots of great direction and hints about the harbor, Crab Island, etc.

Highlights of the boat trip were relaxing at Crab Island and watching a pod of dolphins coordinate and chase fish to shallow the waters of the shore line for feeding! Blue Heron Watersports was an excellent experience…would highly recommend it!!

We rented a boat from Tim at the blue heron for a morning of cruising the bay. We were met at the van, and by the time we had all the paperwork signed, Tim and his staff had our boat loaded and ready to go. We had 6 adults and 5 kids under the age of 6 (2 infants) and we all had a good time. The rental was about as cheap as I've seen and you don't have to pay for gas either. The staff was very knowledgable and helpful about where to take the boats for different types of activities. If we ever get a chance to do this again, I'll definitely come back to tim and the gang at the blue heron.

Amazing service! Assistance loading & unloading,well maintained boats, owner involvment. The little things make a difference and the staff of Blue Heron Watersports was attentive to our specific needs. It was above and beyond my expectations.
