Great equipment! We have tried others but came back because the equipment is safe and easy to operate. The staff is top notch! Would give them 6 stars if I could.

We first booked with Lagoon Pontoons for a dolphin tour and had a great time, so we rented a pontoon for the day with them this time around for a mini honeymoon trip. The staff made us feel great about operating the boat as out-of-practice drivers. We enjoyed our day on the water, saw some dolphins up close, and watched jets take off for the air show this past weekend. The boat was clean and we have only good things to say about the staff we encountered and the experience as a whole. Overall, we were very pleased with the pricing, the instruction, and our experience with this company. We look forward to renting with them again!

Jacob our guide and his adorable daughter Willow were fantastic! Jacob tried his best to get us as close as possible to swim with the dolphins and sea turtles. We had a great time, saw tons of dolphins and swam with a few right next to us. Highly recommend this company for tours.

Jessica T., Google, May 2024

Been coming here for years. So cool to see the growth and updates over the years! We love Shell Island!

Rae E., Google, May 2024

Our experience with the two-hour jet ski tour was great! Ethan, our tour guide, was awesome. As a newbie to jet skiing, I found myself struggling to get the hang of it, but Ethan's patience and kindness made all the difference.

Despite my initial hesitation, Ethan swiftly came up with a solution that allowed me to still enjoy the tour to the fullest. His understanding and willingness to accommodate made the entire experience memorable and enjoyable.

Thank you, Ethan, for your guidance and ensuring that our adventure was nothing short of fantastic! We highly recommend this jet ski company, especially with such exceptional staff like Ethan on board!

Sydney L., Google, April 2024

My family enjoyed a 2 hr dolphin jet ski tour. Check-in was super easy and straightforward, as was checking out. Ethan was our tour guide. He was professional, knowledgeable, and really made the effort to make everyone feel safe while having the time of our lives. We will definitely be back!!

Eric M., Google, April 2024

It was a beautiful day with lighter winds so we decided to rent a pontoon boat. It was an easy process and the boat was nice. Went to Shell Island for a bit. Then just went around the shoreline. We came across a school of dolphins which were fun to watch. Would definitely recommend!

Ruth K., TripAdvisor, March 2024

Excellent customer service; responsive, friendly, knowledgeable. Great time at Shell Island. Easy to navigate and very easy-going staff!

Julie P, TripAdvisor, March 2024

What a great rental experience. The pontoon was in amazing shape, the staff was friendly and informative. Great location 10 minutes from Shell Island. Everything worked on the boat and for the off season full day price of $270 they can't be beat. We saw dolphins, rays and found tons of shells. 10/10 would recommend if you are looking for a visit to Shell Island and we will be back on our yearly trip for sure!!

Justin Sarbeck, Google, February 2024

Easy check-in. The boat was really nice, in great condition and easy to navigate. The crew helping us on and off the boat couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. A+...we will definitely be return customers!

Robin Riley, Google, February 2024

There are a number of places in Panama City Beach to rent a pontoon, and Lagoon Pontoons is at the top of my list. The staff are helpful and courteous. They are keenly interested in your safety, but in a friendly manner -- no scare tactics. The boat we rented was clean and in great mechanical condition. The staff took time to clearly explain where to go, what to do and how to keep safe. They answered all our questions without hesitation.

Al Watts, Google, January 2024

Dolphins, Dolphins, and more Dolphins!! This was an amazing experience! The Dolphins were so playful and showing off. We saw more Dolphins on this tour than any other Dolphin tour we have ever been on! Even had a pod of Dolphins swim right against my legs! Capt Christo was friendly and let us spend so much time watching the dolphins!

Jenny Miller, Google, January 2024

Best deal during the off season and very polite helpful staff. Answered all our questions and explained everything thoroughly before we took off to explore Shell Island. Will definitely be back to rent from them again!

Leticia Foulker, Google, January 2024

Had a great experience, and I felt refreshed after this boat ride. It's relaxing to know you're out there with a highly qualified & intelligent guide.

Kayla S. , TripAdvisor, November 2023

We had so much fun swimming with the dolphins. Captain Stan was great. Very nice and friendly knew all about the area the different sea life. important the music was great. Great time!

Susan Merz , Google, November 2023

Incredible experience! Captain Christo was a great guide and we all agreed it was the highlight of our trip! We had plenty of opportunities to get in the water with the dolphins and Christo guided us well to see them each time. Highly recommend!

Brigitte Jones, Google, November 2023

The day we rented our pontoon was the best day of our vacation! We hadn't even pulled away from the dock when we started seeing dolphins playing in the water. Boat was clean and easy to maneuver. Customer service was fantastic! When we got back to our car afterward, our battery was dead. One of their high school employees spent over an hour trying to get our car started for us. We cannot thank him for his kindness enough!

FFwifeandmom, TripAdvisor, October 2023

We had a great time renting the pontoon for the day. We were able to bring our dog and take our time exploring the bay. Rob gave us great instructions and tips. We stopped at shell island, threw down the anchor and walked over to the gulf side. Great experience-will totally do it again.

minmib, TripAdvisor, October 2023

What a wonderful 22nd anniversary experience for me and my husband (and our fur baby🐶)! We thoroughly enjoyed our full day trip around Shell Island. The staff at Lagoon Pontoon were awesome! No issues whatsoever. They answered all our questions and were very courteous and friendly. We will definitely rent again from them.

lmferraro, TripAdvisor, October 2023

My son and I had a great time on our 2 hour tour. Got to see dolphins up close, was overall a great experience. We will definitely book again.

Scott Morgan, Google, October 2023

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff were extremely polite and friendly. The pontoon was modern and in great condition.

Mike Bonomo, Google, October 2023

We had nine people in our party so we had two boats. Luckily, there weren’t any other people on the second boat so we were able to go around together as a family. I have to say seeing my son and granddaughters and nephew swim in the water with wild dolphins was definitely a lifelong memory that I will cherish, The captains of the boats made us feel safe, and educated all the while having a great time. Would definitely recommend this tour.

Lisa Sims, Google, October 2023

Fantastic service, clean fast pontoons, great price. Truly enjoyed the experience and would recommend this place to anyone!! Keep up the great work!

Jim Pals, Google, October 2023

This is now my Go To for boat rentals. Great boat, terrific docks and location. Staff was awesome! Highly recommend.

Jason Smith, Google, October 2023

This has always been one of our favorite beach adventures. The family loves going out to Shell Island on the pontoon boats and even doing some fishing from the boat!

Regie Jones, Google, October 2023

We had an amazing trip with Seth and he knew exactly where to take us. He made sure to fill out 3 hrs as full as possible. We swam with dolphins, and a manatee. He also took us over to a ship wreck. We saw sting rays, sea turtles, sea urchins. He is extremely knowledgeable!

J Wassam, Google, October 2023

There were two couples on the boat and Captain Stan was awesome. Saw several pods of dolphins and went wherever we asked. Perfect weather, flat seas and great adventure.

Paul G., TripAdvisor, September 2023

Our first experience renting a pontoon for our family and we absolutely loved it! The ladies at check in were very welcoming and helpful. Brock got us set up on our boat and was personable, knowledgeable and thorough. We will definitely give them our business again! We were happy with the entire experience- from the online rental to the end of our trip!!

Michelle Y., TripAdvisor, September 2023

Fantastic jet ski guided tour with Shawn! My nephew and I had a blast! We got to go wide open on the jet skis during many parts, saw a family of dolphins, and the most amazing school of about 30 stingrays right off Shell Island! Shawn worked hard to make sure we were comfortable with the speeds, and to find dolphins. We will definitely be back!!!

Becky B., TripAdvisor, September 2023

We had taken a cruise on their catamaran, Island Time, and decided to rent a double decker pontoon from them a couple days later. Both experiences with Lagoon Pontoons was phenomenal. Every interaction with their staff from check-in, deck hands, and boat captains was exceptional. This was our first trip to PCB, but if we ever go back we will do business with Lagoon Pontoons for sure! Do not be alarmed by their reasonable prices, they are a top notch company. By far the most memorable part of our vacation!

Dan G., TripAdvisor, September 2023

We are a family of five with 3 kids under 12, so we were a little hesitant to take them on jet skis in the ocean as their first jet ski ride. That being said, we booked anyhow and regret not doing it sooner. The kids had a wonderful time and our guide, Shawn, was absolutely amazing! He took the time to make sure the kids had a blast on the jet skis and interact with dolphins. We could all tell he loves his job and it made the experience all the more incredible. Anytime we are in town, we will definitely book this tour again and request Shawn. Wonderful experience and phenomenal tour guide!!

Madeleine E., TripAdvisor, September 2023

Ethan was our guide, he was so nice, patient and took the time to help and explain everything
We have a 17 year old son and he had a blast. We will definitely do it again next year!

Flavia S., TripAdvisor, July 2023

This was our second year visiting and we requested Captain Jacob since we had him the year previous. It’s always the highlight of our trips. The whole staff seem beyond friendly! Captain Jacob made sure we got to see everything we wanted and was so encouraging to make sure our kiddos jumped in to see dolphins and sea turtles. This year we even got to meet his daughter Willow who made the trip even better! We will be back!

Lindsey Broussard, Facebook, July 2023

My wife and I had boat all to ourselves so that was awesome. We had never gone snorkeling before. The Captain was so cool. We can't wait to go again.

Montyvell, TripAdvisor, June 2023

Wow so fun! We spent about 30 min on the island which was the perfect amount. Our instructor was wonderful. We had a great time. We rented one jet ski for the two of us.

Becca W., TripAdvisor, June 2023

We had Captain Jacob for our pontoon rental. Not only did he give us a great tour of the area by water and got us close to dolphins, but he also offered up great suggestions for things to do in the area that we would not have thought of. He was a GREAT guide and we really enjoyed our experience.

Tim S., TripAdvisor, June 2023

Captain Cristos was great with our group of 6 - 4 adults and 2 kids under 9. It was explained that seeing the dolphins would be on whether they were in the vicinity and he would do his best to see that we saw them - and we did! We also saw sea turtles and were able to swim in search of sand dollars and other beautiful shells. Captain Cristos helped us out with our searching! The boat was well taken care of and supplied with ice and cold water. It was terrific and we recommend it and our Captain!

gigimom1209, TripAdvisor, June 2023

Awesome experience for the entire family, will repeat every time we visit!! Skipper Jacob was great!!! Definitely would rate the dolphin swim tour a 10/10

Kevin Marshall, Facebook, June 2023

We rented the slide pontoon. It was well with it! 5 teenagers had a blast. The first time we rented the regular one. The boats are well maintained. The staff was fantastic from reservations to the dock. We have rented from other companies, this was our 2nd time with Lagoon Pontoons. The experience with this company is far greater than the others we have used in the past. If you’re in PCB in the busy season I recommend reservations. They have several, but I would be surprised if they don’t rent them all.

David B., TripAdvisor, May 2023

Great place for jet skiing. The tour guides are always awesome. Ethan was fantastic this last time. We will continue to use them whenever we visit!

Cameron Voigt, Google, May 2023

We had a wonderful experience with Lagoon Pontoons. Capt Stan customized our trip just for us since my wife and I were the only ones on our trip. We swam with dolphins and manatees!

Brian F., Google, May 2023

Captain Stan was THE BEST! He made sure to customize our excursion to what we wanted to experience. We saw numerous dolphins, were able to swim within a few feet of them! We also saw sea turtles and were able to also get within several feet of them while in the water. We snorkeled along a rock area on Shell Island with lots of different fish to see, and also snorkeled over an old ship wreck area. Stan was a great guide! Very knowledgeable and just a joy to talk with! I would do this trip again in a heartbeat! We did the 9am, 3 hour trip, on a 6 person max boat (we were the only passengers), and it was perfect!

Heather, TripAdvisor, May 2023

10/10 RECOMMEND!!!! We had the time of our lives on the jetski dolphin tour!!! Ethan was outstanding and led us straight to the dolphins!!! I cannot recommend this experience enough. Jet skiing with the dolphins, with Lagoon Pontoons, will be something we do every time we come to PCB!! THANK YOU for giving us the greatest experience of our lives, Ethan😊

Lisa P, Facebook, May 2023

We had a wonderful time with Captain Justin! He knew all the great places to go and catered the trip to what we wanted to see and do. Justin was great at driving through some big waves making it as smooth of a trip as possible. We would definitely do this trip again and would ask for Justin!

Sara G., Facebook, April 2023

We had a great time today with our Captain Chase! He was very knowledgeable about the area and made sure we got to see many dolphins! My son even got almost close enough to touch one and her was surround by about 6. We really enjoyed our private boat ride and definitely recommend Chase as your Captain!

April W., Facebook, April 2023

A great family run business, super accommodating, really friendly. The boats were very clean and modern and the double slide talk about fun in the sun. On our way in we got to see dolphins in the channel That was a big highlight 👍🏼😊

Marty T., Google , March 2023

All staff were friendly and happy to help. The young men who got the boat ready and gave safety instructions were a pleasure.

Joni M., TripAdvisor, March 2023

We rented a 60hp pontoon for two of us for half a day. It was an AWESOME experience. It was a vacation highlight! All staff were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We will definitely be renting again!! Would recommend this to anyone!

Nancy R., Google, March 2023

This place was great! Super easy to make a reservation, their boats were fabulous and very clean, all of the staff were friendly and helpful. This is probably the nicest rental pontoon I have ever had. Highly recommend!

Megan M., TripAdvisor, February 2023

Great captain, saw dolphins, a sea turtle, sand dollars, pelicans, black diving ducks, and more! Went snorkeling...

SanJoseCA999, TripAdvisor, February 2023

Great trip, friendly staff, decent price, good location to Shell Island, boat was in good shape. No lines to tie off to anything (used the anchor line) and they didn't have the boat available we reserved the day before so they had to give us a slightly better boat (an extra canopy and Bluetooth radio). I wouldn't have any issues recommending this company and would use them again.

Mr.Brown, TripAdvisor, November 2022

Second year in a row renting from Lagoon Pontoon. Same as last year, awesome! Great customer service, nice boat, and a beautiful day on the water!

Mike C., Google, November 2022

I booked this in hopes of being able to interact with the dolphins and I was able to get in the water 4 different times and near the dolphins 3. Christos was great about trying to make it the best experience! The dolphins just didn’t want to hang around at that time. I can’t even tell you the number of dolphins we saw! We also got to see sea turtles! I will book this again the next time I’m in PCB. Definitely worth the money!!

beckyann3134, TripAdvisor, November 2022

The staff at Lagoon Pontoons was very friendly and helpful. I called in to get information and speak to a person after reviewing their website. They took the time to answer all my questions. Upon a arrival Brock walked us through the rental boat which was in great shape. He gave us recommendations for where to go and what to do based on what we liked to day. The full day rental was great, just not enough time to experience it all. When we got back, Brock helped us dock the pontoon, unload and he took care of the clean up. Awesome experience, we would go back again!

Jeff R., TripAdvisor, November 2022

Our first time renting a pontoon will now be a yearly thing. Lagoon pontoons are nice boats and the employees are great! They have the best prices in the area.

911tlk, TripAdvisor, November 2022

This was such a great trip! Everyone was friendly and provided great advise as to the best places to go. The double decker was added fun! We had 6 of us with LOTS of room. The slides were a blast. We are keeping where we went a secret as it was very secluded with no seaweed!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We will be doing this again!

Steve K., TripAdvisor, October 2022

My family of 4 and my parents did the dolphin tour. It was amazing! Captain Cristo was super fun and very knowledgeable. We saw and swam with lots of dolphins, got to pick up a starfish, found sand dollars, and saw a sea turtle. So much fun!

njparker811, TripAdvisor, October 2022

The staff and booking experience was a very pleasant experience at the start. The boat was in impeccable condition and was flawless throughout the trip. The crew that met us at the end was very courteous and so helpful. These guys deserve recognition as they are polite, genuine, and there for the customer.

Manuela R., TripAdvisor, October 2022

The double decker leisure Kraft Tritoon was a very nice ride and maintained very well and extremely clean. The staff was awesome and maid the trip safe with the knowledge they presented. I have rented here now for our last two vacations and will continue too in the future

Jeff S., TripAdvisor, October 2022

We rented the double decker for 5 hours and had an absolute blast. We were rescued by staff when our boat got into a bad spot during a storm and he made it all okay! Once the sun came out we loved it so much. I’ve never driven a boat but it was easy and so fun! Can’t wait to go back. Awesome staff

Naturenurse1986, TripAdvisor, September 2022

Rented a pontoon (60 horse) for the day. Had a great time and enjoyed the day with friends. The two men working were very busy but super helpful and friendly. When we came back the younger one (sorry didn’t catch his name) told us not to worry about trash would take care of it. Nice guy, friendly and seemed to enjoy his work. Thank you!!

Cindy M, TripAdvisor, September 2022

This tour was the hi-light of our PCB trip!
Chase was an excellent tour guide! He was very informative and showed the 6 of us a great time on the jet skis. He found a school of dolphins playing around that were close enough to touch and he was entertaining to watch on the jet ski. Very well worth the money and a definite must next time we’re there.

mkamom11877 , TripAdvisor, September 2022

Our boat Captain’ took us to where he thought dolphins were and sure enough we got to jump in beside one! He kept us moving to where the dolphin moved to. He took us to the ship wreck, and to the sand dollar and starfish area and again, we found some! Ge was a perfect host!!! We would do this again in the pontoon boat tour!

Carol P., TripAdvisor, September

Great experience renting from Lagoon Pontoons. Boats are in excellent condition and clean. Staff is very courteous and helpful. Will be back for future visits.

Egluvr, TripAdvisor, September 2022

They have multiple things to offer and the entire staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area, as well as safety concerns. We rented a pontoon for half a day, did a dolphin tour, and also the jet ski tour. Our guide swam with us and took us to all the best spots to see the marine wildlife. I had my first time finding wild hermit crabs, scallops, and sand dollars! He also got us up close to dolphins and a couple sea turtles. It was a very cool experience, we will definitely be coming back.

Rachel M., TripAdvisor, August 2022

We had a little issue with our original booking which was all our fault and the manager and one of her assistant stepped in and save the day. It was a wonderful trip we had a great time on the pontoons and we could’ve asked for a better day. We had great memories with our grandchildren and I would recommend it to all of you. I would do it again in a heartbeat

Tracy N., TripAdvisor, August 2022

We had the best time. The staff was great and the boat was top-notch. We will definitely be back! We had 3 of our 5 kids with us- ages 8 to 20. It was great for everyone!

Stephanie C., TripAdvisor, August 2022

Another fantastic experience. Lagoon Pontoons staff are knowledgeable and friendly and always have the pontoon in tip top shape for a great family day on the water.

RBB4trip, TripAdvisor, July 2022

Our Guide "Chase" was great! Very helpful for those who needed it and allowed the experienced ones to have fun while keeping us all safe. The trip was amazing, the ride, the waves and the dolphins! an Excursion I will take again and recommend to anyone/everyone!

Chris Alan S., TripAdvisor, July 2022

Our time on the boat was fabulous. The check in and return was easy, we were able to delay our trip by 2 days due to rain, and the boat was very clean. I highly recommend Lagoon Pontoons.

bdbowers12, TripAdvisor, July 2022

We had a great time on the boat despite the rain. Easy to use. Easy to navigate. Fun for the family.

OldTechGeek, TripAdvisor, July 2022

While we didn’t get to explore shell island, we did get to swim with wild dolphins which was an incredible experience!!!!

swimfun2022, TripAdvisor, July 2022

Cannot say enough wonderful things about our trip and captain! Not only was the company very flexible when rough weather came through on our first scheduled ride, but they went above and beyond when we were able to get out there. Captain John made sure he knew what we wanted to do most and what we were most excited about, and he totally delivered! John was so knowledgeable about the area and other fun facts and knew right where to take us. We were able to swim with so many dolphins, see sea turtles, watch the sunset on Shell Island, and lastly we were able to get super close to the the deer on Shell Island. We could not have asked for a better time. Highly recommend this company and be sure to request to have John!

stephaniempuerto, TripAdvisor, July 2022

We have rented a "double-decker" Pontoon for the last four years and each year was so fun. Their boats are newer than some I've seen on the area and also well maintained. We were happy with this same company this year and my grandchildren love the slides. Also, the customer service/help as we registered, loaded the boat were very nice and respectful for us being there and we are appreciative! Thank you!

lbasford, TripAdvisor, June 2022

It was fun and the service was great. I enjoyed the many beaches and islands my family and I got experience

cordking30, TripAdvisor, June 2022

We had a great time on our double decker. It was very clean and everything worked great. The staff was very knowledgeable on where to go and able to answer all of our questions. Very friendly company from start to finish.

Kayla0888, TripAdvisor, June 2022

Incredible experience...the staff was super friendly, nice clean pontoons and the instructor was extremely informative.

Edwardbeachlover1966 , TripAdvisor, May 2022

This is our 4th time renting with Lagoon Pontoons and we love it. It is always the highlight of our vacation. This year, in particular, it was because the weather was stormy almost the entire time but our pontoon day was PERFECT! We rented a 60hp this year to save some money. We had been out about an hour or so and we started hearing noise from the motor. We called back at the docks and they came out immediately and switched boats with us. They brought us a 90hp deluxe so that was a pleasant surprise. They are easy to work with and the boat is always very clean. We could not recommend them enough!

KYWildcatgirl, TripAdvisor, May 2022

Quiet, peaceful, guided pontoon tour over the Gulf of Mexico… that just happens to include sight seeing, swimming with dolphins, magnificent views, and end with a ocean floor exploration of the sea??? Why would you not?! The price is everything you pay for. By the time I was done I only wished I had more cash to tip the tour guide with. His name was KristO. The one last year- just as awesome! Take your kids all ages! Or romantic getaway.

Sheynaf2022, TripAdvisor, June 2022

Family outing on a pontoon. 6 adults, 1ten year old, 1 six year old, 1 four, 1 three and one that just turned one. All ages enjoyed cruising the bay, going uo beside the jetties, down the far end of Shell island. We anchored at Shell Island but the water was too cold (for us) and the wind was pretty strong. The pontoon was awesome! Clean, up to date, and plenty of storage for all the items we needed for kids and adults of all ages. Definitely will be visiting them again.

kellyjulaine09, TripAdvisor, April 2022

We had so much fun! Wished we had seen more dolphins and the weather was a tad better but overall amazing time!

Cosmopolitan42650 , TripAdvisor, April 2022

Family day getaway on the lagoon and Shell Island. This 1/2 day pontoon boat rental was perfect! Easy to use with detailed map for destinations along the way!!!! PERFECT!

Sarahviviean, TripAdvisor, April 2022

It was a great experience. From booking online and talking on the phone to arrival with quality staff and boats. Lagoon answered all our questions and very helpful with friendly suggestions on where to go. Thanks for a memorable family experience we will always cherish.

Artyoung2022, TripAdvisor, April 2022

We rented a 90 HP 12 person pontoon and had a fabulous time. Our trip consisted of six adults three 17-20yr olds & a child and every single person loved our experience. We went to Shell Island, Lands End & Shell Island Beach. Weather was gorgeous all day. We watched a pod of dolphins near Lands End and it was an awesome experience. Saw so much sea life, tons of different crabs, starfish, sand dollars, and a jellyfish. Would definitely recommend doing the full day. Staff was very friendly, helpful & thorough. On our way back in we docked at Pelicans bar & grill at the Sheraton and had a bite to eat. Great time, HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

amyd, TripAdvisor, April 2022

Very friendly workers clean everywhere, from the parking lot to restrooms. boats and the dock are all very clean boats all lined up dressed right dressed. we changed are date like 3 times due to weather and they were so helpful doing this. they had lots of life jackets for the little ones all looked clean I would love to get a boat from them again so much to see and getting to shell island was so fun and nice to be able to take beach stuff with you LOVE LOVE LOVE and again the staff so so so very nice southern hospitality.

Darcy D., TripAdvisor, March 2022

Great time on the pontoon! The staff was helpful and nice, and the price was reasonable. I would recommend renting from Lagoon Pontoon!

jshirah2022, TripAdvisor, March 2022

We have rented a regular pontoon from a different company during a previous vacation. This time, we rented a double decker pontoon from Lagoon Pontoons. We had a great time! Everyone at Lagoon Pontoons was friendly and easy to work with. We will definitely go with this company in the future! The pontoon had plenty of room for our group - 4 adults, 3 teens, and 2 children. We were in the area for the week and this excursion was everyone's favorite part of the week!

Jackie M., TripAdvisor, March 2022

We had a great experience with Lagoon Pontoon. The weather was unpredictable the week we were there and the staff was great helping us reschedule - a couple times! The dock crew was great. The boat was super clean and easy to use. And the island was so much fun!

lfurgeson , TripAdvisor, March 2022

We had a great time on our jet ski tour. Chase was our guide and he did a fabulous job of providing support and keeping it fast paced and fun. Highlight of our time in PCB.

Jennifer R., TripAdvisor, March 2022

Overall very friendly and helpful staff. Boats are clean and equipped with everything you need to be safe and have a good time

lholiday651, TripAdvisor, March 2022

We had the best time renting from lagoon platoons, it was a easy booking the boat online. I made a mistake, but they were so helpful and understanding. they showed us how to drive and the safety measures. Which were simple to understand. The boat was clean and easy to maneuver with a great BT sound system. The kiddos loved the slides! When coming back in, we got a little lost, but they helped us find our way back and bring in the boat. I will be renting from them again for sure!

Ggaytan773, TripAdvisor, March 2022

We took adult family members out on the lagoon to celebrate a couple of birthdays. Everyone had a wonderful time. The pontoon was in excellent condition, very clean and comfortable. The staff members were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely book again when we're in town next!

Global16226989198, TripAdvisor, March 2022

Even though the weather wasn’t as warm as we’d hoped, we had a fabulous 2 hour cruise with our captain, Justin!
He was very engaging and pointed out sights along the way. He knew just where to take us so we could see a delightful dolphin show! Loved our stop at Shell Island-what a beautiful oasis!

marysW112KF, TripAdvisor, March 2022

The boat was very clean, the staff was very professional and had SUPER GREAT customer service. We will be renting again in May when we come back to Panama 🖤

wyattjaquan, TripAdvisor, February 2022

We rented a pontoon for a half day, and had a blast. Ashley, Keenan, and the other guys were soooo nice and so very helpful. They were just opening up for the season., and treated us like family. If we ever get back down to Panama City Beach FL, we will definitely see them again. I totally recommend this business.

Michelle B., Facebook, February 2022

The staff at Lagoon Pontoons are all very qualified and extremely friendly. Amber made our reservation and took our visa... we had a detailed itinerary and complete description of all we had signed up for within 60 seconds of the transaction. I am impressed Amber!! You are good!

martinspoolandspa, TripAdvisor, February 2022

we rented a pontoon just last week and it was an amazing experience! all of the employees were super nice & explained the map well. we got so many pictures and saw so many dolphins! we want to come back every year as we are from MN and only come down in the winter! and it was such an affordable price!

Kelsey G., Facebook, February 2022

Renting a pontoon from Lagoon Pontoons for a trip to Shell Island will always on the itinerary when visiting my parents in February! We have made the trip for the last three years. It is a chilly ride out, but soooo worth it! Lagoon Pontoons is accommodating with wheelbarrows to carry beach stuff from your car to the boat . The young men were very helpful getting us set up and retrieving the items we left in the boat after the trip. (oops!) We will always use Lagoon Pontoons for our annual shelling trip on the island!

Excellent booking process and helpful on the phone with questions. Easy signing up and getting out on the water. The pontoons are in great condition and the instructions excellent. Great day out and very good value for money. Would highly recommend

R. Ivan, TripAdvisor, February 2022

The workers were great, explained everything clearly and were very helpful, even assisting in boarding and unboarding my elderly mother. The equipment worked great, no problems at all, and the kids enjoyed the slides and sunbathing up top. We also saw dolphins while we were out, they came right up close to the boat! Great time!

We rented a pontoon boat from lagoon pontoons. No issues; boat was in good condition. We had the 60 hp 12 person boat. Staff was courteous and professional.

Ricky, TripAdvisor, November 2021

Our family rents from Lagoon pontoons every year. The boats are very nice and well maintained. This year, Shane was very helpful and made this year our best experience ever.

chollan2021, TripAdvisor, November 2021

The staff was very helpful and the boats were clean! We were walked through everything and given a map with the best areas to go to find dolphins, shells and sand dollars. I will definitely be back next time we are down there!

davidsl0an, TripAdvisor, November 2021

What a great way to spend a day! Took my 22 year old son and his friends out for 1/2 day. Pontoon boat was fantastic as was the day. Rob was great and everyone had the best time!

Brian M., TripAdvisor, October 2021

We had a wonderful time! Our captain, Christo, was excellent. We had a group from 2 yrs to 81 years old, and everyone had fun. We saw dolphins, touched a cannonball jellyfish, went to Shell Island, and enjoyed the boat ride. Christo was knowledgeable, friendly and very polite. We will definitely be back and will request Christo as our captain. The booking staff at Lagoon Pontoons was friendly and easy to work with. They answered all of our questions and even helped with suggestions for accommodating toddlers and senior citizens. 5 stars!!!

SMorris, TripAdvisor, October 2021

We rented a pontoon boat for the day, this was the best thing we could've done!! Shell Island was absolutely beautiful and we were able to find shells and enjoy the gulf waters. Staff were very nice and courteous! We will definitely be coming back to Lagoon Pontoons!!

Candy L., TripAdvisor, October 2021

We had a blast on our boat. We rented the double decker for the slides for the kids. staff was great and helpful. everyone in our group had a great experience. we will definately rent from lagoon on our next trip

msanders2021, TripAdvisor, October 2021

The boat was awesome, went out to shell island found a bunch of sand dollars, saw several pods of dolphins as we drove around, the services were great Highly recommended for a whole day can’t wait to come back again

williamdavenport81, TripAdvisor, October 2021

I recommend this company. They were great. Made our day fun. Enjoyed everything about it. Easy to drive, easy check-in and return. Nice clean boat. I will use them again.

Georgia78, TripAdvisor, September 2021

We had a wonderful time. The captain was awesome. Even showed us a type of jelly fish that doesn't sting. We stopped at an area of shell island that had lots of shells. Great time was had by all and will definitely go back again.

k2572p, TripAdvisor, September 2021

Great service. Smooth process getting started and 5* service with beautiful, well kept pontoons. We beached our pontoon, which was common practice for us in the past but the storm made it impossible to move. We called and Gannon came to the rescue! He could have been angry and frustrated and would have been completely justified but he was super cool and not visibly frustrated. His demeanor and attitude were what all owners should strive for in employees and I will never rent with another pontoon service strictly based off of our interaction with him. All of the others were great too which made for a great day even with our misfortune. I’ll never beach it again!

Ty H., TripAdvisor, September 2021

This past Sept. was my family's 2nd time renting from Lagoon Pontoons. Have rented from several other companies in the past, but never again!!! This is the BEST rental company in PCB. Great customer service and beautiful CLEAN boats!

wendy871, TripAdvisor, September 2021

The check in process is fast and easy. They have carts available for you to transport your cooler and bags from your car to the boat.
We rented a 90HP boat and it was a nice, smooth ride. Everything on the boat worked as it should and it was very clean.
The ladder was nice and long enough for my mom to get up and down without assistance. That was a huge plus! We have a boat at home and the ladder is kind of difficult for her, this one was not.
This is the first time we have rented a pontoon in PCB and this is definitely the way to do Shell Island. We were able to go down really far past where the shuttles drop you off and we found a ton of sand dollars and beautiful shells. There were piles and piles of shells laying on the beach and more washing up constantly. It was what I always imagined Shell Island to be like, but never experienced when only taking a shuttle and getting dropped off where hundreds of people are each day.

Laura C., TripAdvisor, September 2021

They have a fast, efficient and safe boat rental operation. Plenty of boat choices and great pricing as well. Its a great way to see the bay and shell island. Highly recommended.

Steedee66, TripAdvisor, September 2021

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE COMPANY! Beautiful boats and just the most amazing customer service EVER! Literally every person I worked with from the first person to check us in, to the guys who helped us unload after it was so clear everyone loved their job and was just a joy to be around. CANNOT RECOMMEND Y'ALL ENOUGH!!!

Brian C., Facebook, September 2021

Outstanding customer service with friendly smiles. Went with the 90hp tritoon and enjoyed the full shade canopy. ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Daniel W., TripAdvisor, September 2021

We had a great experience using Lagoon Pontoon. Easy booking, plenty of parking and the boats were clean and comfortable. All of the staff were nice and knowledgeable. Highly recommend them.

kztexas71, TripAdvisor, September 2021

I was referred by condo owner we rent from as being the best pontoon rental in PCB and she was right. Reservations easy. No long wait to get on boat. Good quality and clean boat. Loved Shell Island and snorkeling. Thanks for helping make a great day for my family. We will definitely do this again!

pam s, TripAdvisor, September 2021

We had a fantastic experience using Lagoon Pontoons. Easy booking. Super convenient location to get to for the 30A area. Wonderful captain. Brand new pontoon that was super clean. Kids loved the double decker with the slide. I would highly recommend them!

51StaceyD, TripAdvisor, August 2021

For years we have rented from other companies. This year, I decided to give Lagoon Pontoons an opportunity. Under no circumstances was I disappointed. Hands down, the upgrades, condition of the boat and exceptional customer service is worth every penny. I’ve tried other companies, stop browsing, choose Lagoon Pontoons. You won’t regret it.

Shannon H, July 2021

This is our absolute favorite pontoon rental place when we visit PCB! Great boats too!

Jaide A., May 2021

We had a great time with CPT Stan (ask for him; you won't regret it!). He took us to where the dolphins were. He made sure that we were right where we needed to be each stop. The final stop of the day was the back side of Shell Island in a small cove. After a short walk over a sand dune, we found a beach that had some HUGE shells!! we hit the mother lode! It was a great time!

James_n_shelly, Waynesville, MO, May 2021

Been using Lagoon Pontoon boats for several years and have never had an issue, always safe and fun!!

dreamyandseedy, Austin, TX, May 2021

Checked out three different rental places in person before selecting Lagoon Pontoons. They had the nicest boats at the best price. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our full day rental on the deluxe tritoon and will certainly rent from them again!

zweber3 , Madison,WI, May 2021

Excellent place to rent the pontoon. The employees were friendly and knowledgeable. They went over everything we needed to know. A very relaxing trip and great time to be with family. It was excellent value for the price and amount of time spent. I would highly recommend.

Beth21133, May 2021

Cody was an awesome tour guide! We had such a fun time & it’s totally worth it! Highly recommended ?

Ciara B., May 2021

This was our first time on a jet ski! And we had an amazing time! Cody is a great tour guide! I highly recommend this place! Thanks again for a great trip today!!

Freda M., May 2021

My sisters and I had so much Fun on the Dolphin Tour with Captain Stan! Our original plan of renting a pontoon was diverted due to high waves, but the staff suggested this instead and it was the best idea! Getting out on the sandbar was super fun!!! I'd highly recommend Lagoon Pontoons for a fun day out on the water!

Courtney L., May 2021

last min rental for a pontoon for half a day. very nice desk person, deck hands very nice and explain do's and don't. excellent equipment. great place to rent from. Will definitely be back. with friends. thank you for the great time and experience.

Troy J., April 2021

We rented a pontoon boat from lagoon pontoons . We have been going somewhere else for 25 years , after renting here will never go anywhere else again. They have carts to help get your things to the boat . The staff was excellent and professional. Brick was our deckhand and was extremely courteous. I am so confident In this business I’m renting another boat in June for our family.

Pedro H, April 2021

Captain Stan did an amazing job of making this a fun experience for my family of 5! We saw a lot of dolphins and we were able to get in the water for an up close and personal look. They are still talking about how they heard the dolphin sounds underwater. One said that the dolphin smiled at him. This was followed by a great visit to Shell Island. I highly recommend this company and this tour!

Shelley W, April 2021

We booked a last minute 3 hour snorkel tour to Shell Island and loved it! Captain Christian was very knowledgeable and was able to customize our trip to meet our needs since we had little kids with. We loved that the max. number of passengers was 6 because that's how big our family is so it was basically a private charter. We snorkeled, hunted for shells, and saw sea turtles and dolphins! Definitely worth the money!

Sara S., April 2021

Originally made a reservation with Scottys rentals while vacationing in panama city beach. They canceled on us last minute because of cold weather but I'm from CT and have a different idea of what constitutes cold. So we made reservations with Lagoon Pontoons last minute based on their availability and reviews. Me and my fience rented one of their more powerful 90hp 12 seat pontoon. they also have a less powerful 60hp option and 90hp luxury option with full cover and top deck which was probably a lot of fun for a big group but a little to touristy for my liking. The boat was in excellent shape had a radio that was bluetooth capable was fully stocked with safety equipment and filled with 25 gallons of fuel which I was assured was plenty of fuel to get anywhere we wanted for the day. I payed $300 for a half day(8:30/1:00)or(1:00/5:30) which was penty time to do and see what we wanted out on the water and they let us take it out 30 min early since we showed up at 8:00. I will definitely rent with them again next time we visit and recomend them if your looking for a rental in the panama city area.

Daniel G., April 2021

We had an awesome time. Was able to see and swim with a whole pod of dolphins. We then went to a sand bar and found sand dollars, star fish, a huge horse shoe crab and baby, and a conch shell. Our guide Chris was the absolutely amazing.

Brigette D., Millbank, South Dakota, April 2021

The service was very professional. The pontoon was in great shape and very clean. Map for the area was very detailed. Would definitely rent from here again.

Voyage578338 , March 2021

Best place to take a boat out with a private captain and explore! Best price, best service, wonderful experiences. Been several times with and within our family! Best kept secret!

Kelly E, Ventura, CA, 2/21/21

We rented two boats for our family of 18 and went to Shell Island. The boats were new and in great shape. Very good instructions on operating the boats and where to go to anchor. One boat was a double decker with two slides. The kids and adults all loved sliding into the lagoon. The return was effortless.

AceJr2, Ogden, UT, 2/15/21

We have rented pontoon boats before, but Lagoon Pontoons stood out to us as having a very friendly and professional staff. The rates were the best we have found on the gulf, and their equipment is top notch. We will rent from them for sure on our next trip back to PCB in February 2022!

mickster2016, Beaver Dam, WI, 2/1/21

Had an absolute blast Labor Day weekend (Saturday) on a guided Jet Ski Tour, with Tour Guide Cody. It was a fairly large jet ski group, sold out at 8 I think, and he still had us ZOOMing, a ton of places to go flat out, trying to get up to their max speed of 50mph, which we did quite a few times --absolutely exhilarating.

It was ROUGH out, 2 of the jet skis that were inexperienced even said nope and bailed, and Cody had to escort them back. But he warned us all at the start that it was very choppy and bumpy out there, we would be getting thrown around a bit, and having to haul a$$ around all the traffic--but was an intensely fun time!

Not for the faint of heart, I couldn't imagine any first timers going out, almost got thrown a dozen times from the rough waves, but that's half the fun. All of us that remained had been on them before, and there were a few that had grown up on jet skis and were really good, and I don't profess to be an expert by any means, but even those seasoned veterans said it was pretty rough out. Of course this is the weather we had, so it is going to be different for everyone, I would maybe call ahead and ask them what the water is like if you're new/inexperienced.

Cody was a blast as a tour guide, he honesty told us that we probably wouldn't see any dolphins because of the recent hurricane, all the boat traffic from the busy weekend, and the horribly murky water because of the storms, but he seriously made up for it with the fun ride-- and who cares when you're blasting through waves catching air at 49mph lol?? That was way more fun than searching for Flipper.

We stopped for a quick break on Shell Island --the water on the gulf side is INSANE, so gorgeous and clear, (we saw a sea turtle and a giant crab the size of a plate, should be a stop for everyone visiting PCB). 30 minutes to catch you breath/cool off in the gulf, and then back on for more fun.

I can't tell you what a blast we had, highly recommend this for those looking for some thrills, and Cody really was excellent-- I hope his boss gives him a pack of beer for giving his customers such an entertaining 2 hours. Will definitely go again next time, and will be the highlight of the trip like it was this time!

CJ M., Houston, TX, 9/7/20

Wonderful staff and a great experience overall.. come here for a great time out "on the pontoon"!!

Grey T., Jacksonville, FL, 9/19/20

So so happy that our brother-in-law did the research and reserved a pontoon for our first 30A experience. We were a vacation group of 10 - two families and a grandpa who loves to fish. We stayed in Santa Rosa Beach, so it was about a 45 minute drive to Lagoon Pontoons. The weather didn't look great, but it ended up being a perfect day. We spent our day traveling up and down Shell Island. We stopped at multiple spots to snorkle, walk, sunbathe, swim and fish. It was really an amazing day and a perfect addition to our vacation!!

April W., Charlotte, NC, 8/2/2020

Great customer service, nice new equipment that is kept very clean, A++ also very personable, 5 STAR

Paula S., 10/01/2020

Excellent staff! Very helpful and knowledgeable!

Kathryn M., 9/21/20

Amazing customer service. They handled all of our food and supplies for Shell Island. Made sure the kids had life vest on. Also helped us find the best locations to stop at.
