The boat is really nice and the crew very friendly. However if you’re going on this to see dolphins, this is not the ride to go on. There were a few sting rays and a small pod of dolphins that were hard to see. Other...More

Rented a 20 foot pontoon boat for a whole day. Went fishing at the bridge before Lovers Key. Took a little while to get there but a nice ride. No problems with the boat. Everything worked properly. Will rent from them again.
