    Pontoon rental

    Everything was great once we got to the dock. Site said there is a parking lot for $10. The guy who operates the lot actually charges $20 and there are no guarantees. You are better off getting there early and circling the coyote ugly parking lot to find a spot for free and closer. My only complaint is that we went out on the pontoon and had to come back an hour early because it down poured. The company does not refund for time lost for the rental.

    Good value and service.

    We dealt with Jason at the marina and he was very informative, prompt and helpful. We rented the pontoon boat for 4 hours and cruised out into the bay. The only reason this isn't a 5 star review is the boat had a few minor flaws that could be better, but definitely nothing that would stop us from returning again. One of the speakers were busted and the throttle seemed very loose and unresponsive compared to any other boat I've ever been on. Seemed like it could use some definite attention, but like I said those 2 things weren't anything that hindered us having fun or made the boat not worth the money for the rental. I'd definitely recommend this place for your boat rental and we will most likely do it again if we venture back down to Destin.

    The service that Tripshock gave was great but the rental shop sucked. After having to transfer all our belongings onto 2 boats because of equipment failures, the over all trip was great and kids had a blast on the jet ski's.

    Rental was great - directions to hidden booth suck

    The boat was in great condition, had radio, awesome, great service. There boats are in better condition than many other vendors. Directions to this place awful. The address by using navigation is useless. there are 25 booths and their booth is behind the other booths, and there are 5 booths that are blue. The name on the invoice does not match the name on the booth. Spent 30 minutes looking for the damn place. Please give very specific directions to this hidden gem

    Hi Mr. Sellers, Thank you for the review and we appreciate the feedback. The e-voucher attached to your confirmation email has very exact directions on it and it's very accessible. We understand that it can be confusing down there with all the booths and that's why we hope all our customers are viewing this voucher prior to arrival. We are glad you enjoyed the boats and we hope to have your business back in the future.
