    Pontoon Boat

    The boat didn’t run well and it had no radio, which was an important factor for us since we were spending 8 hours swimming near the boat and cruising, seeing sights. Overall, it was just an okay experience because we were expecting better quality.

    Pontoon rental

    The boat was outdated,and the ladder was very difficult to get in and out of boat. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

    I was sent an email with directions to boat, we pay $20 to park and I get a text saying the rental is now at another location. We had to walk over a mile with coolers etc. The rental company told us tripshock over booked the original location. The boat rental was fun, but the boat was pretty beat up, but thats a typical rental. I will call the rental company direct next time and skip 3rd party!!!

    Hi Erica, I am sorry to hear about the last-minute location change made by La Dolce Vita. We book for their harbor location and confirmed availability with Josh before booking, however learned one hour later that they were moving you to their other location. I'm glad they were able to accommodate you and that you enjoyed, but we did book within our allotment and did confirm with them prior to you picking it up. To help offset the costs and inconvenience, I have issued a partial refund to your card and emailed you separately a promo code which you can use towards a future activity with us. Again, please accept our apologies for the inconvenience and hope to see you again next time! TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Great experience!

    We rented a pontoon boat for the day to go to crab island. We got there first thing in the morning and had excellent customer service! My only complaint would be that we were not told that parking would be $20 or you can go back out on the busy road and park acrossed the street for $10 which isn’t a easy or quick task.

    Had a great time!

    Boat was great and the attendants were very nice. It was very busy and they were running a bit behind getting us out. We still had a great time and made some great memories with our family and friends.

    Pontoon boat

    Best value of our trip. Our only regret is we did it on our last day. Next time we will book the boat on a few separate days. Well worth it
