My friend and I went here for stand up paddle boarding, and it was awesome. We were skeptical at first as to whether or not we were going to be able to even stand on the boards, but the guys ensured is that we'd be fine. They also showed is great places to go paddle boarding such as: where to stop, what to look for, and what sights to see. They pointed out where we could see some dolphins on the way out as well. The entire business was very clean and well kept, and the employees were friendly. They even had other things to do such as: banana boats, pontoons, and jet skies. Overall, we had a great time and would definitely make it my first choice to go when we come back to Florida.

“Great value, great staff, great experience!”

This was the 3rd year in a row that we have rented our pontoon boat from Sunshine watersports. They have the best prices....we know because we are a large family group and we all shopped around for the best price. More than the best price was the service, they are a locally owned business and they give you that friendly personal service right down to hauling all your heavy gear down those steps to the docks. We have always been able to get a reservation when we have called ahead even if it was just 2 days before, if you plan to go out on a weekend day, I would plan much farther ahead than that!
Bring plenty of sunscreen,beverages, snacks and snorkel or dive gear. Bring cash too because at Crab Island you might want to jump off your boat and walk through the thigh deep water and buy a pulled pork sandwich from the sandwich boat or an icecream from the icecream boat or rent a paddle board from the rental boat. Crab Island is really a sunken island where the water is only a few feet deep and
usually crystal clear(unfortunately,
this year the water was not clear due to all the rains).Lots of boats anchor at Crab Island and play for a while. After playing at the island you can cruise around the bay looking at dolphins then head over to the jetty for some snorkeling. When the water is clear, the snorkeling there has been as good as any snorkeling that we have done in the Bahamas.
We will definitely be back next year! Thank you Sunshine Watersports! You are the best!
