    Great afternoon out on the water

    For a non-boating family, this was an excellent way to enjoy some time on the water. We explored the inlet and cooked up a BBQ while the kids went fishing. Highly recommended.

    Awesome experience for the kids out fishing

    Was a awesome fishing trip for the children they enjoyed every moment fishing & driving the the pontoon boat. So welcoming - Patrick was so helpful & had such a happy vibe. Definitely returning for a whole day trip with the girls only in November.

    Great experience

    Hired these boats twice now. It's good fun and if you're lucky you'll spot some crocs.
