Boat Rentals/waverunner rental recommendations

I need recommendations for both!

Would love your input!

I want to avoid any bad companies/bad boats/equipment/scammers.

1. Re: Boat Rentals/waverunner rental recommendations

We rented a pontoon boat from Shell Island Shuttle, which is located in the state park, last week. The location works out great if you're planning to take the boat to the back side of Shell Island because it saves a lot of time, taking off from the park right there near the channel. We saw a lot of dolphins in the bay this year, too.

Their boats are very nice and new and didn't have any advertising on them (not that any of us noticed, anyway.) We were very pleased with both the boats and the service and will definitely be using them again.

We haven't rented waverunners for years so I don't have any input on that.

I have always gone a little out of my way to rent from AAA waverunners right next to scotty pontoon boat rentals. they are at 580-541-6879. We always see dolphins on the way out to shell island. I think they may still be the only ones to let you take off and not have to ride as a group. I love that since I have my own here in Texas. I bring my own life jacket and ditch bag with me too. Check em out and have a great time. How I wish my wife and I were there now.....
