How do I go about reserving and renting a pontoon boat?
Reserving your boat is as easy as can be. You are welcome to call us at 850-243-2628, or stop by in person at our location on Destin Harbor. You can schedule your rental while you are here on vacation, or call ahead to ensure a boat will be waiting for you. Don’t miss your chance to explore Destin’s seascape in your own comfortable boat! This will be the highlight of your vacation, without question.
What equipment is included with a rental pontoon boat, and what should I bring?
Your boat comes with a full tank of gas, sufficient for any exploring you could do during your day afloat. You will also find all the required USCG safety gear and charts of local waters to aid in your explorations. If you need a spot out of the Florida sun, you can put up the bimini top (a shade canopy) that comes with the boat. Some items you might want to bring along would include beach towels, coolers with picnic and beverages, gear for snorkeling or fishing, and personal items like sunscreen and cameras. If you do plan to fish, don’t forget to go online to get your Florida fishing license. It’s available at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
Are pontoon boats a kid-friendly option?
Absolutely! In fact, even your four-legged “kids” can join you for the ride. Our pontoon boats are so safe and simple to operate that you can even give your young ones a turn at the wheel. The stability of the boat makes it easy to corral even very young children while you’re in motion: it’s just as easy to disembark for a swim or an exploratory expedition on a beach.
How many people can cruise in your pontoon boat?
The capacity of our pontoon boats makes them ideal even for large families or groups of friends. The boat is certified for up to a dozen people (kids DO count in that head count), and if you have a larger group you can easily rent a pair of pontoons and head out with your own little fleet. Tie the boats together at a destination, and you have a floating party dock!
Do I need special certifications to operate a pontoon boat?
Not at all! Our boats are safe and simple to handle, and there is no special requirement (of either certifications or experience) for you to take one out on the water. If you are familiar with the basics of driving a car, you won’t have any problem captaining a pontoon boat. It’s as simple as “forward,” “reverse,” and steering. The only requirement is that the renter must be at least eighteen years of age, but there is no age requirement on the passengers. Our professional staff members will give you the simple demo of how to drive the boat before you take off, and you will be good to go! We will also familiarize you with the boat’s safety equipment (such as the personal floatation devices required by the U.S. Coast Guard). We will be happy to go over the chart (water map) of the waters around Destin before you head out. Ask for the inside tips of local favorites and you will find some spots the tour boat crowds never see!
Why rent a pontoon boat? What are the advantages?
When you rent one of our comfortable pontoon boats, you have just made the entire Destin seascape your own playground. Rather than being held to the schedule (and expense!) of a tour boat operator, you can set the agenda AND set the course of sail! You and your family or friends can enjoy each other’s company without being crowded onto a deck full of other tourists; in short, you can go exactly where you want, when you want. Think of it this way: when you arrive at a destination vacation, do you rent a car to give yourself freedom and privacy, or do you plan to rely on public transportation for the entire duration of your stay? Of course you rent a car! You don’t want your vacation to be ruled by bus schedules or other timetables. And you don’t want to get crowded by strangers on your journey. The same holds true with renting a pontoon boat. You don’t have to pick a schedule or destination from the fixed menu of tourist boats because you have the freedom and privacy to transport yourself!
