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

    Gary was fantastic and our day was perfect. Everything went so well we will definitely be renting Gary’s pontoon boat again the next time we are here. His pontoon was clean and had everything we needed for the whole day. Gary was quick to respond to us and kept us informed from first contact to the very end. Thank you for help me have a wonderful birthday Gary, we had a great time.

    We rented Gary’s pontoon and it was a wonderful experience. He was attentive and even met us at a alternate pick-up location so we could stay and have dinner with friends. Could not recommend more highly, felt like dealing with an old friend. Much easier and a bit cheaper than a boat rental facility. Do not hesitate.
