    Cruise The SAND BARS and Search for DOLPHINS in our 24' Pontoon!

    Best Rental experience ever! Gary is one of a kind, we call him ol' school cool! lol. Felt like I've known him for years. Awesome guy, awesome boat! We will never rent from anywhere else in this area again. Best value by far, Gary includes gas, big cooler full of ice and water, a bangin bluetooth loud speaker for music, floats for the kids and so much more! It would have cost us upwards of $600 to rent a boat this nice from some big rental company. So glad we found Gary, saved us a lot of money, not to mention all the extras he supplies that the others don't and the one of a kind experience he gave us! We rented his boat all day for ours sons 12th bday on June 15th, it was one of the best trips we've had and Gary really helped make the experience awesome. Thanks again Gary, the kids are still talking about you and the boat!! See ya next time.

    This was our first real vacation with some friends & Gary really made It feel special. His hospitality was off the charts & as Texans we appreciate that so much. His boat was clean, safe & we enjoyed every minute on it. He was hilarious, friendly, professional & overall genuinely an amazing, honest, kind person. It felt as though he was a long time friend of ours lol We miss the guy already & will definitely be renting from him again! Thanks Gary!!!

    Can’t say enough good things! We had a great time, it was the highlight of our beach trip! Thanks!!! Heath was great and took us wherever we wanted to go but we mostly just wanted to cruise and see the sights.

    I cannot say enough good things about Gary and his boat. We had our whole family from age 2 to 86 on the boat and ALL LOVED IT! Gary was so nice and pleasant and so easy to work with. He gave us an amazing “tutorial” before we left and was so very kind. We will keep renting from him every chance we get!!

    Stop! Seriously. You found the right pontoon, the right man, the right experience! Gary is so personable and caring that you won’t leave this with a canned boat ride experience, but a heart full of memories and laughter. Fun for couples and families! Our family of ten won’t use anyone else now that we’ve found Gary! He has the pontoon fully stocked, affordable prices, and makes SURE he’s a phone call away. Want to make beautiful memories? Rent this pontoon. No doubt!

    18’ Sea Pro DC in Orange Beach

    We had a great time spending a day on the boat. Heath was awesome and responded quickly. It was a last minute trip but he took care of us and everything went off without a hitch. The boat was reliable and great for cruising around the bay and islands. I'm sure we will use Heath again for any future trips.
