This was the second time we rented a pontoon from here. The price is not bad, the bay is gorgeous and has lots of good snorkeling spots. This time the morning had rough seas but that's a weather variable. We did try to radio a question and never got a response. On return the crew apologized and stated that the marina had it on the wrong channel. They need to be observant of that. Word of advice there is one area of the bay with a ton of stingrays and horse shoe crabs closer to the state park so be careful there we noticed this area two separate times of the year.

Rented a pontoon for full day (which is a deal for $220 you get boat from 8am-6pm). Bait and ice on site. Friendly staff. Caught 4 sharks. Had to take boat back a little early due to rough waters, but overall a great day.

So glad we took out the pontoon all day on the bay at Port Saint Joe. We went out to the tip of the cape and the beach and water were just beautiful. Our dog loved the boat ride and swimming off the back. Water is rougher in afternoon due to sea breeze but morning was smooth and we saw many dolphins. Water is shallow at places so you have to be careful but we had a great time especially when docked at the beach. I wished I had had my snorkeling gear so take some. Next time we will go visit Black Island.

We rented a boat from Seahorse Water Safaris and spent a wonderful day on the water. We really enjoyed the tip of Cape San Blas Beach...a must for visitors as it is mostly accessible only by boat. Went fishing on the Fishing Express and Captain Bill and his staff worked hard to keep us on fish. The fishing regualtions prevented us from bringing home most of the boats catch so we took photos. Several people upset they could not keep their catch however it is the regualtions. The fish do not know if they are a legal keep when they bite your hook.

My family rented a pontoon boat for the day. It was the highlight of our 10 day vacation in Mexico Beach! We caught/released ten sharks and a bunch of sail catfish. The amount of marine life in St. Josephs Bay is amazing. Any direction you looked there was something surfacing out of the water to take photos of. We saw many pods of dolphin, several large loggerhead turtles surfaced for air right by our boat and large rays gliding through the water, jellyfish, sharks and many species of fish. The staff at Seahorse Water Safaris was friendly and helpful. The weather was great, a bit hot but the bimini top on the boat gave us a little shade. The water got a little rough on the ride back in, so we headed back to the marina about an hour early. After the excellent day we had, we didn't complain. This is a must-do expedition while in the area, you won't be disappointed.
