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    The boat was outdated,and the ladder was very difficult to get in and out of boat.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

    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

    Pontoon boat

    The boat was wet and the seats were not wiped down. I understand that it's a boat but at least dry the sets for me, I am a boat owner. The seat cushions had mold all over them that was embedded in the vinyl seats. I should've gotten a discounted rate since the other boats that were docked next to mine waiting for customers did not! When you pay $300 for four hours you expect a clean boat, kinda like a rental car! The parking! As stated in a previous review it's $20 not $10 so just be aware! I think the parking attendant is pocketing the other $10 since it's CASH ONLY! And I had another service charge of $17 that tripshock didn't charge me for on the website & had to pay before we got our rental.

    Everything required for the rental was emailed and/or texted to me in a timely manner allowing us to depart 5 minutes after our arrival. Excellent customer service: friendly and knowledgeable. We will be using tripshock next year for our rental needs.
