First time renting a pontoon, we were NOT disappointed at all!
We had great dock hands that showed us how to use everything on the pontoon. We got to go out and see dolphins and stingrays and also could see crabs crawling along the bottom. Crab Island is awesome. We would rent a pontoon from these guys again. Excellent service! Reasonable rates for a half a day out on the water.
