    Crab Island Excursion

    We used Gilligan pontoon boat rentals for our first ever trip to crab island and had a blast! It couldn’t have been a better experience from the easy check in to the excellent customer service from the dockhands. We made some great memories for sure and I would highly recommend using these guys for your next rental. Top notch!

    Bowen review

    The boat was worn out. Radio would not work. Had to leave a credit card with the desk and no one reminded me to get it so had to drive back the next day to retrieve. However the dock crew was very helpful and the weather was good. Had a good day but will not use gillians in the future.
