We had a fantastic time exploring and cruising around on the Choctawatchee Bay! Being ex-Chesapeake Bay boaters, we truely missed the feeling of being out on the water. We saw dolphins and stopped for a dip around crab island. The owners at Blue Heron Watersports could not have been friendlier, helpful or more accomodating! The boat was clean and spacious,... More

This is our 5th time renting a pontoon boat in Destin and, I believe, our 3rd vendor. These are easily the best boats we've rented. Tim & Wendy take great care of the boats and they are courteous and helpful in getting your stuff to and from your cars with eager young muscle and carts at the ready. The only... More

We rented a pontoon visit while vacationing in the Destin area again this year. We have rented from several different locations over the years, however, none of those rental companies can meet the expectation that has now been set by Tim and Wendy of Blue Heron. Boat was in excellent shape and well maintained. We were provided complete orientation of... More

We rented pontoon from Tim so nice and we had a fun day on Crab Island. Beautiful clear blue water. Watch for jelly fish we saw hundreds while on the boat!

Honestly, we chose to rent from Blue Heron because they had 90 Yamaha motors on their boats. From the moment we arrived until we left it was the most wonderful experience ever. They unload your cars and put everything in the boat for you. When you return they unload the boat and load your car. The staff was amazing. We... More

We had 3 families in our group to rent a Pontoon boat for the day. We had called a few places, but decided on Blue Heron Watersports after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. Owners are extremely nice and helpful. The only Con is the parking is hard to find and overcrowded. Our reservation time was 1:30pm. We arrived at 1:00pm... More
