If you can tell forward from reverse, you’ll do just fine at driving a pontoon. The kids will also love helping you drive and it is fine to let them.

A pontoon is the perfect way for your entire group to spend a day on the water together. If you have even more people, you can get two boats, anchor up together, and have a beach party! Our pontoon boats are a great value for large groups.

Are pontoon boats safe for kids?

Our pontoons are safe for everyone, including pets! Pontoon boats are famous for their smooth and stable ride that lets folks of all ages enjoy boating. Top speeds are low, and safety railings all around provide security. But please note that wearing a life jacket is strongly recommended for young children and non-swimmers during any recreational boating activity. Coast Guard regulations require boaters to carry one life jacket for each passenger on any boat, and our pontoons are fully-equipped for maximum safety.

What if I am not sure which day I want to rent a boat?

We get this question a lot. We understand that you are on vacation and it can be hard to pin down a firm schedule. But our pontoons are one of the most popular attractions in Panama City Beach and reservations can be tight. The best solution is to plan a day on the water and reserve your boat for early in your visit. A day of boating can be a great way to get familiar with the area when you first arrive. Plan and reserve BEFORE you arrive in Panama City Beach so you avoid the risk of missing out.

What is the cancellation policy?

If you must cancel you can do so for any reason up to 24 hours in advance. Please respect the 24-hour deadline to allow others the chance to enjoy the pontoon experience. If you cancel less than 24 hours in advance, you will be charged full price. The only exception to this rule is in the case of bad weather.

What is the inclement weather policy?

In case of inclement weather, you will be given priority for rescheduling to ensure that you don’t miss out on a spectacular day on the water.

What’s the minimum age for renting a pontoon boat?
