“Great Group Experience with Luther's”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

We were in Destin for a week during July 2013, and one of the highlights of our stay was renting a pontoon and enjoying the water with our children and grandchildren (seven total in group). Neither my family nor I claim to be seafarers, but we had a marvelous time nonetheless. Suggest groups spend at least four hours on the water in order to get the full experience.

The staff at Luther's was professional, courteous and patient in the process of equipping us and instructing us on what we needed to know and do. Will return to Luther's in the future when we vacation again with family in Destin. Absolutely no complaints.

“Waverunner trip”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

When we asked around what waverunner compant to used we were directed to Luther's. I called first thing in the morning on our last day and the person who answered the phone was extremely friendly and helpful. She gave us booked the time that we wanted and gave me great directions to find their place down on the boardwalk. Once we got there we were greeted by a friendly woman who went over the necessary documents that we needed to complete. We were then fitted for life jackets and sent over to another individual who briefed us on the actual waverunners and where we could and could not go. The four of us had an absolutely wonderful time and when we got back we were greeted by smiles and asked if we had a great time. We will definetly be using Luther's again when we come back to Destin. Next time we will try out the Pontoon. My boys loved Luther, the dog. :)

“Best service in Destin!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We rented from Luther's based on the reviews here and are so glad we did. Little John gave us a free upgrade to a larger boat, helped us load all our stuff, and gave us tips on where to go and what to see. Upon your return, they are there to help you unload, pull the cart with all your stuff back to your car and even empty your trash for you. Luther's clearly understands that service is key to running a business and it shows - they truly care about your experience. We will definitely rent from them every time we visit Destin.

Bonus: We love Luther, Little John's dog. That pup owns the place. .:)

“Still the best business in the Harbor!”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We rented a 20-footer on 7/7 and a 24 on 7/8. One of the great things I think I've neglected to mention about Luther's previously is Lil' John's ability to juggle boat schedules around inclement weather, which we had to work around on this trip. Destin got hit with some bad storms while we were in town and we were still able to get out for two days. The customer service is still second to none, the boats are kept up nicely and we were kept up to date on fishing spots and new sights to see while we were cruising the harbor and bay. Still the highlight of our Gulf vacation!
