Hi Barb. Sorry you feel you were wronged by us. The reason I could not personally answer your calls is that I am still associated with the military and have been Temporary Duty the past month. You purchased one of our USED pontoon boats. We sold it in AS IS condition as we are a rental company, not a boat... More

I know their website asks for reservations but we just showed up and saw a paper on a clipboard stating Clint, was at the dock with a phone number to call. I called the number and he stated he was at the store and would be back in five minutes. He showed right back up and took care of my... More

No reservation needed. Just a little paperwork then a short golf cart ride to the dock. A bit of instruction and your on your way. Friendly staff. Very satisfied.

We rented a jet ski here and Clint was most helpful! He gave us tips on the local places to visit and check out and helped us in getting around. The Jet ski rental was great and we had a ball riding around in the Bay, over to Crab Island and into the Destin Harbor. Very nice folks to deal... More

This is the best watercraft rental in the fort Walton/destin area. Extremely convenient and the owner and his staff were super accommodating. The owner is a retired service man and so was his staff who helped us. Family run business and couldn't ask for nicer.

There are tons of choices for rentals out there but my entire family was blown away by the friendly service we got today from the owner (Clint) and his sons. The waverunner was in great shape and scared me to death because it was so fast. Great prices, but come to crab island watersports because you want friendly and helpful... More

We rented a pontoon boat for 1/2 day. It was an absolutely wonderful experience! The boat was perfect for us (2 families with 6 teenagers) and the Crab Island Watersports employees were very accommodating. I would highly recommend renting a pontoon boat from Crab Island Watersports.
