Had a great time on our 4 hour pontoon rental. The boat was clean and in good shape. The crew were really friendly and helpful and even managed to get us out early. We've done this before and will do it again. Thank you!

Myself and my husband and 2 others rented a pontoon boat for a half day. No one helped us load anything. Deck hands work for tips so if you want them to help you I guess you have to tip them immediately or be a elderly person. 🤷‍♀️ Boat was nice. It doesn't go very fast though. It will take you a while to get around the bay. So we pretty much stayed at the sand bar (crab Island). There is a canopy which is nice and only there is only one ladder to get in and out. This was the cheapest rental we could find. A full tank of gas is included. Not sure if we would rent again honestly.

We had a blast just wish we had done 8 hours instead of 4 hours!!! We saw 2 dolphins, a pool of stings rays. The up by the bay over by the boardwalk near the million dollar homes we seen 2 more dolphins!!! We definitely will do this again !!! We recommend this place very professional!!! Plus I accidentally rented 2 boats. They reimbursed us. So thankful!! Next time we will do 8 hours!!! The young man even helped us carry our stuff to the boat.

First boat we got broke down 300 yards from the rental…waited for another pontoon and they said they were giving us a an extra hour for the inconvenience… the new pontoon they brought to us steering and everything was barley attached and extremely dangerous. The called asking where we were even tho they told us we got an extra hour. Then when we came in and mentioned how rough the newer pontoon was they just agreed and said they’re not sure why it’s not fixed…very very sad that that’s the way we ended our trip…100/10 don’t recommend sunshine water sports!!!

DO NOT RENT HERE! There are better options. Several issues. 1.) Were told via phone all boats were 21 or 22 models. This was a lie. 2.) Boats not functional. The steering wheel was incredibly difficult to turn. Only the adult male on boat could maneuver, the adult females could not turn wheel. 3.) Boats not functional. The boat could not get over ~15 mph. Subsequently the boat could not get on top of waves, wake and was nearly over taken by large wakes. 4.) Boats not function - No gauges worked. Trim didn't work.

Searching for shells at different areas that would not be accessible without a boat. Lots of great views of homes too.

Sunshine pontoon rentals are best. Boats are new and always in great condition. Staff is friendly and so helpful. They even provide free ice and help load your stuff in/out of the boat. Great prices.
Definitely the right choice for pontoon rentals.
