We had a very nice time on our VIP sunset cruise. We chartered the captained pontoon for a sunset tour at a reasonable price. He took us over to Shell Island and we all got out and looked for shells and took pictures and enjoyed a short beach walk before touring the bay area for sea life and watching the sunset. Unfortunately, the kids only saw one dolphin for a brief second but still enjoyed the ride, the shell island experience, dancing, singing and we pulled up to the sandbar at St Andrew's to let them "entice" some local deer with crackers. We had a party of 10 and everyone in our party enjoyed the trip. Due to weather, we did not get to go out into the ocean but did get to go up far enough to see out into the ocean. Very personalized experience. People were great to work with! Would definitely recommend. Bring some snacks and relax and have some "together time" fun!

This was a fantastic trip to add to our time at PCB while on vacation. As soon as the boat was in the open water, we saw dolphins. The dolphins didn't jump out of the water, but there were so many to see. It took a while for the people on our trip to warm up to each other, but Moseley helped by keeping the drinks filled and conversations with other passengers. We found out there was a family on the trip who live across town from us in MN. I recommend taking a trip with the Footloose crew! They did not disappoint. One free drink with your ticket (alcoholic or not), walk around and mingle or just take lots of video and pictures. Great adventure! Hoping to make it back to PCB to take in another trip!

We rented a pontoon for a full day and it was an absolutely amazing day. I have been wanting to visit shell island for several years so this made it possible. I searched several rental places and I'm extremely happy I chose them. This was a joint Birthday/Father's Day trip and we all had an amazing time. The staff was friendly and helpful. We usually go to Disney for my daughters Birthday but due to the pandemic that wasn't possible. Being able to rent a pontoon made it possible for my entire family to enjoy the celebration and it was affordable. The boat was clean in great condition. I highly recommend them for your rental needs.

We had a fantastic experience! I booked over the phone(received a discount), paid cash upon arrival(another discount), had our waivers sent online(super easy!!!) and while we waited the morning before boarding our catamaran we were able to feed the fish on the dock(bring lots of quarters), and played with crabs on the little beach. There are clean bathrooms to use before leaving the dock(great for the family who’s child wants to use every bathroom in the United States).Once boarded we have a terrific crew who were extremely helpful and very attentive. They make fabulous drinks, help people off and on the catamaran and overall make your experience a happy one! We took the short trip over to Shell Island. Lots of water toys, kayaks and paddle boards are waiting for you. After two hours(perfect amount of time) everyone gets back onboard for a boat ride to find dolphins(we saw a bunch). The entire trip is about 3 hours. 2 hours on Shell Island, and 1 hour cruising. I will definitely book this next time we come with friends!

We rented a pontoon boat driven by Captain Mosley. We chose to do a private pontoon rental in order to limit exposure to other parties for social distancing purposes. We could have taken the pontoon out by ourselves. However, so glad we had Captain Mosley. Definitely worth the extra to be able to relax, have someone skilled in dolphin sIghtings and knowledgeable about the area. Great time!

Four of us took the sunset cruise on the catamaran. We saw several dolphins during our first island stop. A guitar player entertained for a short time (until he broke a string, and had no replacement) which was great...while it lasted. Very friendly crew and great catamaran!

We had so much on this trip! My husband and I took three teen girls and they had a blast. All the activities were so much fun. A great value as you could take out kayaks, long boards, play on inflatables in water, snorkel and ride the banana boat, all included. The ride to and from shell island on the Privateer was so much fun. Even seen a few dolphins. The crew and staff were awesome, Keith,Ryan, Jesse & some others I can't remember all the names. Highly recommend!

My family of 7 had a wonderful time on this sunset sail. We spotted several dolphins, the water water was fairly calm, the sunset was beautiful, and the staff was very accommodating. I highly recommend this sail. My only regret is not doing it a second time before our vacation ended!

Rented a private pontoon boat for a bachelorette party afternoon out on the water. We were a group of 12 and had a captain, Brandon, who was great!! He navigated the waters and took us to two different spots and was so helpful and attentive. Would definitely recommend, especially if looking for a private rental.

We did a full day pontoon rental and couldn’t have been happier. The price was great and the boats are clean and safe. The staff are friendly and professional and willing to make sure you have a great day on the water. Payment and paperwork is all online which allows you to walk up, go through the introduction and safety to the boat and head out on the water. We had 9 adults on the boat and still had plenty of room to move around. We cruised the bay and stopped off at a couple different beach spots to walk and pick up shells. To top the day off as we were heading back we got to see a pod of dolphins 10’ from the boat! We will definitely be back for another trip very soon.
