    Easy Peasy & Oh So Fun

    We booked the pontoon with jet ski package for Sun., 9/2/18! This was our first time renting a boat and the whole process was super easy, start to finish. Checking in was easy and we didn’t wait long to get on our way. Even though we only booked 4 hours we had a blast. Our friends from out of town kept saying what a great idea it was. We will def rent again and will recommend Tripshock and Gilligans Watersports to those we know.
