My husband and I were recently in Destin and we love being on the water. We rented a pontoon boat for the day from Dockside and had the best time! The boat was in very good shape and the staff was top notch. We spent the day exploring the bay, where we saw packs of dolphins who followed and came... More

Rented pontoon for half a day. The staff was polite and professional at all times. The dock and boats were all in great condition, obviously well cared for. Everything was clean and tidy, rental office, restrooms, deck, dock and boats. Listen to the dockhand's directions and advice and all should go well. We had a near perfect day, and I... More

The pontoon boat was great. Unfortunately, we had two big issues - one with the stereo and one with the bluetooth speaker. Listening to music on the pontoon boat is all part of the experience. When they don't work, its a big deal. We rented their bluetooth speaker and it went out after an hour - it wasn't fully charged.... More

My daughter and I went to dockside for our first parasailing trip. The staff who helped us with paperwork were so friendly and helpful. The crew were very helpful and patient. They were careful with the passengers and explained every thing to us. We had a wonderful time on this trip and we would definitely recommend dockside for water activities.

Terrible experience. My family of four and my friend's family of four were vacationing in Destin together this past week. We called Dockside to rent a pontoon boat and successfully made a reservation and provided a credit card number and contact phone number. I was shocked and in complete disbelief when our families arrived with four kids all excited to... More

Awesome and friendly crew been in the business for years. Our event got called for high winds and they let us reschedule for next day without charging us again. As an added bonus we got to see dolphins as well. Would definitely recommend this place to first timers very well priced.

My husband and I rented a pontoon to go to crab island... The staff was very nice and also helpful. We brought our dog along with us and she had the time of her life.
