Reviewed June 22, 2016

Our family does the Dolphin and Shell Island tour every year when we visit PCB.. This year though we decided to branch out and rent a Pontoon Boat from them instead.And, Oh my this was the BEST decision we ever did.. The tours are so fun and the Captains are always great but it was so nice to take it out and do our own thing.We went to some of the same areas as we have before and found shells< beautiful ones, crabs, I even caught a few Starfish... It only had one down fall and it was ----WE ONLY RENTED FOR 4 HOURS!!! Next time we will be doing ALL DAY!

I, my wife, and daughters decided to rent a pontoon boat for half day. Great time had by all. We found lots of sand dollars and spotted many crabs an sea urchins. We even saw a few sea turtles. We only spotted dolphins a few times around the boat and it was deep water so no one wanted to go in. Great value for the money spent. We will definitely do this again for sure. Thanks for a great day.

My wife and I again rented a pontoon boat for the day from Shell Island Boat Rentals. We arrived a bit early and quickly filled out the paperwork and paid. Terry (who remembered us from last year) showed us the features of the boat. After a few minutes, off we went to explore the bay. Our first stop was just past the channel to fish for a while. We caught all kinds of lady fish, blue runners, and a bluefish. Around lunchtime, we headed further down Shell Island to relax by ourselves. We stopped a few times and dropped anchor to fish and enjoy the sun and quiet. Each time, we were run off by some clown who could not navigate their rental pontoon boat to save their life. While we both got a good laugh watching these clowns try to anchor their boats, eventually we would just move to get away from them. At one stop, we even saw a shark swim under our boat and large sea turtle surface really close by. We headed back to our original spot to finish out the day fishing before heading in. Great people and boats in excellent condition. Can’t wait for our next adventure with Shell Island Boat Rentals.

I enjoyed the Dolphin Tour and time on Shell Island, although I would have preferred a longer visit on the island but otherwise it was nice.

The guys at Shell Island made sure we were good to go with local navigation, safety, etc, and told us where the good spots were. We got a "premium" pontoon boat for 8 hrs for 5 people for $220. Sounds like a lot, but cheaper than a half day tour boat for for five people so we decided to drive ourselves, go where we wanted, and spend as much time as we liked. Well worth it, easy, safe, and fun! Highly recommended.
