    Great time!

    Staff was great and very informative. Our boat seemed to be lacking power but still got to our destinations and had a blast on the water

    Hello! I'm sorry you felt you had too many rules as to where you could go... the only rule we have is that we do not allow our equipment in the Gulf of Mexico and it's for your safety as the current and conditions can change rapidly. Other than that your free to roam over 26 square miles of Choctawhatchee Bay and the Intercoastal waterways! We hope you enjoyed your vacation while here!

    Crab Island trip

    The only thing wrong was that Tripshock did not tell us that legally we were only allowed 12 people on the pontoon when I made a reservation for 14. Other than that it was wonderful!

    Hi Janice! Unfortunately that is a recent new rule for our area. No more than 12 on a pontoon at a time. It's possible the rule wasn't in effect when you made the reservation. :( I'm glad you had a wonderful time though and we hope to see you again soon!

    Pontoon rental

    Tripshock was easy and great to help us rent a pontoon. The pontoon we rented was older and not the best but it worked for the 4 hours we used it. A beautiful ride to crab island

    Hi Michel! Thanks for leaving the review. We are in the process of changing out our pontoons. Please come back and visit us to check our brand new pontoons we have coming and don't forget your 10% off card!
