I am writing this review as a last result in hopes of getting the attention of this company being that my calls and texts are being ignored. I chose Fun Rental Boats based on the reviews & the boat rental company that I normally use was already booked for the date I needed. We booked a rental for the morning of Saturday 7/13/2019; only to receive a text an hour before we were suppose to be at the marina asking if I had “a moment for a phone call”. Mark explained to me that the captain had an unexpected emergency and that he would try to find another captain to take my family out. He also offered the boat to us without a captain and to switch the date to the next day, which we declined being that we had an itinerary for our trip & had prepaid for baseball tickets for that Sunday. After a series of phone & text correspondences around 10 am it was decided that he could not find a captain and the full refund would be issued the next business day. Due to the fact that my family was looking forward to going out in the boat, I contacted Mark via text early Sunday morning to see what would be the latest we could go out on Sunday if he had anything available and offered to cut our game short. Only to be reminded in the response from him that I told him I had a game and couldn’t go, so they didn’t set anything up and would let me know if they found anyone last minute. I took no further response as meaning they did not or we’re not going to attempt to find anyone. I understand that emergencies happen and I’m not blaming the company for that. However, it’s been a week & I DO NOT have my refund & was told on Tuesday via text message that the “regular office person” was out sick. I’ve since called and text only to be ignored. The customer service was excellent until at no fault of my own they had to cancel. I would not suggest using this company if you need a captain. It is understandably that it was a weekend rental and an emergency, however you would think a company with this type of reputation would have access to a backup for these type of emergencies!!! No reply needed for this review, JUST REFUND MY $319.93!!!!!

I live in NY so I was looking at places on line to rent a pontoon for half a day for my family on our vacation to Deerfield. I came across a few that were closer to Deerfield but Fun Rental Boats was a little further but so easy to work with and very accommodating. We rented a pontoon for half day with 3 tweens and 4 adults no captain. When we arrived they assigned us captain Steve because they thought the weather might not be good on the way back at no extra charge. The weather happened to be great and having someone driving the boat and knowing where the best places to stop was such a bonus! Thank you for such a wonderful and memorable day.

Booked rental while eating dinner at Bristol burger the night before. Ran into Mark at the boat with some customers getting off the boat. They had a blast and so did we. You drive the pontoon boat down to biscane bay. Drop anchor and have a blast. Mark includes a stand up paddle board/knee board, Blue tooth speaker, cooler, Life Jackets, map, instructions if you never captained a boat. Kids loved the boat and seeing manatee's. Kids were able to touch the bottom where we stopped in the middle of the bay, 3/12-4ft deep nice soft sand. Boat has a governor on it so you don't get any speeding tickets. Say some pelicans and some large iguana under the bridges. Bring your own snacks or lunch or you can call duffy's restaurant on the right before 2nd bridge and pick up food on the way to the bay or on the way back. Mark gave us his number if we had and problems and he will even park the boat if you are uncomfortable doing it on your own on the way back. Awesome and highly recommend just wish we did the full day.
