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

    We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the Gulf waterways courtesy of Gary’s pontoon boat. The boat is clean, comfortable and reliable. Gary is responsive, friendly and professional. We couldn’t be more pleased with the entire experience! We’ll definitely work with Gary on future trips to Perdido Key!

    Rent a 18 ft steel canal boat in Amsterdam, Netherlands

    Everything was great, the boat was ready and super clean. Jint was waiting for us 10 min before to explain and help us with all necessary. She was super nice and helpful all the moment, she even told us to contact her during our route if we had doubts. Amazing experience! Thank you!

    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.
