    Pontoon rental

    Was gonna give 5 stars because the dock workers were so nice but the 2 little high school workers in front need to change their little attitude.

    Had a Blast

    We had so much fun hanging out on crab island & using the jet skis. We rented two pontoon boats with jet skis. The jet skis & boats have been very well cared for. The boat was easy to maneuver and the customer service was excellent as well. Next time I will be renting an all day rental so we can have more time on crab island.
