Storm with lightening in the area. We were the only boat out. The captain did ask if we were all leaving town the next day. I assumed he was asking to offer us to sail the next day. We were all leaving, however, safety should have been the priority and he should have asked if we were willing to come... More

Awesome and friendly crew been in the business for years. Our event got called for high winds and they let us reschedule for next day without charging us again. As an added bonus we got to see dolphins as well. Would definitely recommend this place to first timers very well priced.

My husband and I rented a pontoon to go to crab island... The staff was very nice and also helpful. We brought our dog along with us and she had the time of her life.

We have taken the 2 hour waverunner dolphin tour two years in a row. What a great way to spend a morning in Destin. Our guides have shown us a fantastic time both years.

This was the perfect service and value for taking a family geared afternoon on a pontoon. The employees were great to go over the harbor area & gave us tips to where dolphins might be. We will be back!

I had the best time parasailing this afternoon. It was a surprise trip from my fiance and he thought it was a great idea to go parasailing. It was my first time parasailing and I was extremely nervous. The crew was completely understanding, professional, and patient with me. They were able to comfort me and make me feel completely safe.... More

The price was good and the equipment ran well.The pontoon interior and canopies were in good shape and clean. The company made sure we had the information we needed. We spent the day at Crab Island and rented paddle... More

We rented a pontoon boat for family outing. We were able to take 12+ people on the boat including kids. Boat worked just fine but little things were not working, like fuel gauge, trim gauge, etc. No big deal if you are only going to crab island. Fantastic staff, reasonable prices equipment could use some TLC.
