Booked a pontoon boat with the guys at Windsong twice during our visit to Florida and can safely say it was worth every penny. The boats are easy to use and you get a full briefing before you head off. You can also hire fishing roads for just $7, and buy bait etc. too. All you need to do is... More

We have been to Windsong before but not with the wider family and always had a great time. No different this time. Excellent service, good value and superb staff. The boat trip was excellent and safety was the biggest priority as we went through the talk with Windsong before we left. Thanks again. Justin

If you catch them at the right, it will be the most awesome dolphin show you will ever see. Wendy and her crew are the best you are going to find anywhere. Thanks Windsong for the best dolphin day we have ever had...(and I have had many dolphin days)

Just spent an excellent day yesterday (20.7.15), sailing with Captain Roland. The boat was beautiful and well equipped. A leisurely sail down into the Gulf of Mexico with just enough wind to introduce some of our party to the joy of sailing. Would recommend Windsong and unless you are an experienced sailor hire a Captain as they know how to... More

Really enjoyed the great people. Go out to the islands and swim as well as look for sand dollars. Boating in this area is really cool, not a typical area to boat. Also, these folks have military vets working there. Get your boat here!!!

I booked a half day sailboat charter after reading the site and seeing that it was a combination of sailing and swimming/going ashore. In fact the half day sailing charter information states anchoring at the island for an hour to swim. I purchased the additional dinghy rental so we would be allowed to get onto the beach. The sad part... More

Dear Michael, Thank you for telling us of your concerns. Since we provide Private Charters, each sailing trip is always uniquely different based on our guests tastes. Our captains always ask what your preference is - Go to the secret snorkel spot? Just straight sail? Head to the island? Jump overboard and swim around the boat? Perhaps there was a... More

Windsong Charter are very professional to guide you how to sail and rent a Pooton Boat. It's the best way ever to discover the unique sand Islands in the Mexico Gulf. The Port is Lovely and with a Venice 'atmosphere'. It's great to sale on its own with friends and / or Family like 6 To 12 of you. Enjoy

The staff at Windsong Charters were very cordial and friendly. We came during the off season in May, so we had our pick of any kayak. My wife & I changed to a three person kayak, from the tandem one we had reserved, base on the recommendation of the staff, so we would have more room for our cooler. The... More

My girlfriend and I had a great time at New Port Richey thanks to the Windsong staff. The staffs are very helpful in teaching us how to navigate a boat (we are first time boaters!) and pointing us to fun attractions.
