    You can never do wrong by Destin. I would suggest a thorough inspection prior to signing paperwork and contract. The young men putting us on the boats did well on 21 Sep 2019. We followed each and ever policy as well as maritime laws. 10 minutes from the dock , just after we passed under the Brooks Bridge the pontoons center front gate cover came loose and was previously bent and twanged. It was obvious. There was NO screw securing the piece of sheet metal. We found it difficult to slide it back in and really didn’t want to waste time on a pontoon I was paying for. We stowed it away so it wouldn’t be damaged more and continued on our way to Crab Island. What can I say, it’s great. We returned and the deckhand noted the damage and said the pontoon (#3) had been with them for a... read more

    Glad to hear you guys had a great time on one of our boats Mr. Landers! Also glad you received great customer service. I’m sorry we had to charge you for the damage to the boat while in your possession. It’s an unfortunate part of our business. We go over the boat thoroughly and highlight the more fragile parts of the boat that are susceptible to damage and how to avoid them. Gate blowouts occur when the vessel hits a large wake, wave or the majority of the weight is at the front causing the vessel to nose dive. Thanks for coming out and hopefully you enjoy the rest of your stay.

    Destiny Water Adventures poor experience!!

    We came at the facilities at 2:00 P.M. totally on time, and the boat wasn't there, we had to wait 40 minutes for the boat under the sun because they don't even have a chair to wait. We were there waiting with two kids of six (6) and eight (8) years old under the sun After that the boat was in good conditions and we had a good trip. Never again with this company

    Roberto, I’m glad that you enjoyed the brand new boat and enjoyed a day on the water with Destiny Water Adventures. We strive to insure every day runs smoothly. However people get caught up having a good time and occasionally come back late. I’m sorry this was the case on your day. If there’s anything we can do to assuage the situation or make this right for you please don’t hesitate to call us directly. Thank you for your review in helping us getting better!

    First off.... this company doesn’t have a huge fleet of brand new boats. They only have 2 boats. Maybe they are 2018 boats but obviously purchased in 2017 and have very large barnacles built up all over the boat. 2nd..... the only ladder on the so called “brand new boat” only has 1 step because it has been broken leaving very sharp metal edges to cut yourself on and leaving it very difficult to get into and out of the water. 3..... my 10 year old daughter cut herself very badly on the barnacles trying to get into the boat and had to stay out of the water to prevent infection for the remainder of our trip. There is no first aid kit and a standbyer had to come to our aid with one. 4..... the owner is very rude and defensive.

    I’m sorry that your experience was not up to your or our expectations as we want you to have nothing but a stellar experience. We understand how important vacation time is. Our boats are all 2018 model Bennington with 70hp motors, free coolers, blue tooth stereo and swim ladders. They have been in the water for less then 7 months. We routinely clean barnacles but there are always going to be buildups inbeteeen cleanings. Unfortunately a swim ladder was broken a day before you rented and we were unable to secure a replacement before your departure. I’m sorry your daughter scratched her leg on a barnacle upon climbing onto the boat. I’m also sorry you took my adamancy regarding the year of my boats as defensive and rude as I was simply reiterating the fact that our boats are 2018 and other than being 7 months old - indeed brand new. I hope we can accommodate you in any future rental needs and take my offer of a 50% discount on any future rentals. Thank you for your input!
