“Pontoon Rental”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We rented a pontoon for half a day. We arrive early and they processed us, helped us on the boat, gave us instructions and sent us on our way... just like you would expect. Since there was a boat available when we got there, we were able to start a little early. The combonation of their location and price was a great fit for us. The boat was up-to-date and worked well and we had a great time. We only travelled to Shell Island. We walked to the ocean side but that was a mistake. It was just like being on the beach at my condo. We spend most of our time on the bay side with a nice picnic and even bought ice cream from the ice cream boat! For us, a four hour rental was plenty.

The only negative is the information on their website is out-of-date. The half-day rental hours stated 5 hours on the website but was only 4 hours when we checked in. Since we were early, we still got more than 4 hours. They also have multiple phone numbers listed on websites, etc. and sometimes they would not answer any of them! That was annoying.

“Off the beach but spot on for fun!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

It's easy to get caught up in the jet ski fun right besides all the hotels. Planning head and get more bang for your buck! We had a great time. We were able to have two jet skis, two adults and two kids on each jet ski. They were very accommodating. Jason was a great guide getting us out of the bay waters. He gave us great information on precautions so we could have a great time. Just call ahead to make your reservation. Take some water bottles, they have a little storage place for a couple of water bottles and some sunscreen. You'll need it!

“Everyone should take the jet ski tour”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We took the two hour jet ski tour. It ended up 2 1/2 hours which was great. Paul our guide found us dolphins and a few folks jumped in to swim with them. One came up within a foot of our ski. We then toured around, went to shell island and took wonderful family shots thanks to our guide Paul. This was a great trip. Sooooo worth the money and will definitely do next time we go to PCB.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

I only have the sights a 4 because we didn't get to actually swim with the dolphins, which we came for. But we did get to see some. It wasn't the Watersports fault we didn't get to swim with them because of the delay of the Coast Guard surprise inspection. That delay allowed the dolphins to head back to sea from feeding. But, our tour guide Paul was a super great guy, very family oriented. We had forgotten our phones and cameras at the condo and offers to take our pics from his personal phone and sent it to our phones. If you do go, take the trip with Paul.

“Just Go!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

After reading an almost comical negative review, I read so many other positive reviews that I knew this was the place to go and I was NOT disappointed! Paul was me and my daughters guide for the 2 hour jet ski dolphin tour and he was a total blast and he knew exactly where to go to find the dolphins and how to make the ride there fun. We were lucky as our group was able to keep up and we were able to have some fun on the water (not just you average putting across the bay at 20 knots), Paul knows how to read his clients and make it fun.....take some good S turns along the way and make the wave runners do a little work! I don't know if you get to see what we saw every time (seas were calm today) but the dolphins were plenty and a few of them decided to show off and jump out of the water and do some tricks. Anyway, thanks a lot Paul for the great time! I hope this review brings others your way, you deserve it!
