I highly recommend renting from Dockside Watersports!!! We are an amusing & enjoyable gaggle of girls who decided spontaneously to rent a pontoon boat for a birthday celebration. Being the responsible ladies we are, we decided to hire a captain to chauffeur us around and the crew at Dockside Watersports arranged this for us. Sweet Captain Drew was a blessing... More

We rented a pontoon for an evening cruise. The boat was nice, ran well and was clean. Staff was very helpful pointing us toward places we might see dolphins. There was a fireworks show in the harbor after dark and we had front row seats! I'll use their services again when I'm in Destin.

Our first trip to Destin and parasailing was awesome. The crew was young, yes but knowledgeable and very professional even when we had a bit of a snag. They fixed the problem and had us back up and running in no time. They were very personable which was very good with our normally moody teenagers. Cost was great, booking was... More

We are on vacation. We drove 2 hours to Destin to experience a wonderful 1st time experience in a pontoon boat in beautiful blue water. 20 minutes into the water and our boat breaks down 3 times!! We had to call and get someone out and sit in the water for an hour. Guy comes out and is pretty mad... More

Really enjoyed the experience! Not only did we parasail....we also stopped twice to see dolphins! First time parasailing for our two daughters and our friends and their 2 children. They all loved parasailing and said it was the best part of the trip so far! This beat my first parasailing experience with another company by far! Dockside lets you pick... More

I reserved a 12 person pontoon boat several days in advance. On the day of the reservation I called in the morning to confirm the time(one to five o'clock) and the 12 person pontoon boat. They confirmed the reservation. When I showed up 3 hours later there was not a 12 person pontoon boat available. The staff said they "... More

We are very happy we took the girls to Dockside for their first parasailing adventure. Dockside had the best price we found, but more importantly the captain and crew were great - they made it fun and most importantly they managed the trip safely. The kids had a blast and everyone was satisfied. The morning is the best time to... More

Rented a pontoon from Dockside. The boat was in poor condition overall. None of the seat cushions were attached to hinges and the first time we shut the engine off, it would not restart. We called them and they were going to send out a new battery, but while we were waiting we finally got it to restart and did... More
