We had a great time driving the boats out to Crab Island and looking around the area. The only thing I was super sad about were the lack of paddle boards that were... More

We had a wonderful time on the bay with Captain Josh and Carter! The wine and cheese cruise is a great way to spend an evening in Destin.

I had a little trouble with the lady that took my call at the booking desk. She is ready to retire and let someone more happy fill the job. The boat was great. The crew that helped us with the boat set up and docking when we were done was great. Crab island was fun as usual.

Destin Vacation Boat Rentals did an excellent job...we had a group of 13 people and booked a larger boat with a captain (so we wouldn't have to worry about who could drive the boat), Destin Vacation Boat Rentals called the day before and let us know that the boat we had booked needed to be repaired, so instead they provided...

The best customer service we received since arriving in Destin. We spent our time at Crab Island and let me tell you my 4 kids were begging to stay longer. Staff was amazing from start to finish! Definitely renting through you when back in town. Thanks so much!

It was great fun on the boat and playing on crab island. Everything that was described by the company is what we received.Next time we will rent the boat with a slide on it.

We booked our boat rental with Destin Vacation Boat rentals. We did a full day pontoon rental. The boat came with a kayak at no extra cost. We cruised around many different locations including crab island. I will say this was the highlight of our trip. The staff was friendly and answered any questions we had. They even helped us...

We rented a 24' pontoon boat. We arrived at 9. We were trying to get there 20 minutes early, but had a little trouble finding where to park. You are allowed to park at Tailfins. DVBR rents out their lot. Also, when you get there, go down the stairs to the right of Tailfins and turn left. There's a little... More
