Great staff! My family and I had an amazing time. 1st time to Destin and 1st time operating and renting a boat. They were very helpful and we had a blast at Crab Island and just driving the boat around. We rented for a half day and regretted not renting for the full day. We’ll rent from them the next time we come to Destin.

Everything about our experience was great! The pontoon was great and the customer service was great. We had an amazing experience. We booked the boat for 8 hours and needed every bit of it. We docked at The Gulf and ate as recommended by the staff and it did not disappoint at all. Highly Recommend Dockside Watersports!!!!

The boat was completely nasty. There was what looked like blood all over the seat. It was just very poorly taken care of for as much as I spent to rent it..

Hello! We are so sorry about your experience. We strive to make sure that everyone has a great experience and it saddens us when we hear that a renter had anything except. We will address the issue and make sure our GM is notified of your complaint. We hope that you chose Dockside in the future.
