Such a beautiful experience! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and amazing. They took care of each passenger and shared great insight into the ecology of the area. The dolphins and local birds were a treat! If you want a great time this is a great treat for everyone!

My husband and I booked have done two private charter boat hires with our two kids (11 and 8). We always book with Ponce Inlet Watershots as they are simply the best!! Lur first trip waa with Captain Danielle who was a fountain of knowledge. Danielle gave us loads of interesting information about the wildlife, eco system and fish. She took us to several different fishing spots and my husband caught a huge bonnet nose shark. As you can see from the photo, we are all very excited about this catch!
We then had Captain Josh for our second charter and he was equally amazing. My son loves fishing and Captain Josh took us put on the ocean where he helped him catch a huge ray! We caught loads of fish and Captain Josh was kind enough to filet several of them which we later had for dinner.
Thank you Captain Danielle and Josh for a brilliant day and thank you Ponce Inlet Watersports for always providing excellent customer service and a professional fun experience.

Skipper and Andrew did a lovely job - Andrew was full of interesting information about the region, history, and wildlife, the Skipper provided seaworthy puns that my brother (a Navy man) and dad greatly appreciated. Would absolutely suggest as a nice outing! Worth the hour drive, we saw tons of dolphins - no manatees but the water is a bit cold for them currently!They also gave a suggestion to go to a local restaurant, Down the Hatch, and we really enjoyed that as well.

What an amazing experience from start to finish! Easy online reservation and accommodating service. We were running late for our reservation (there were 10 of us) and called to let them know. They said they would wait. Then as things happen on our vacations we blew a tire! We called again and they let us move our reservation to a later time. When we checked in, the service was friendly and on a 1st name basis. The 1st mate was awesome and had a lot of information to share about the local wildlife. This was the 1st Florida vacation for 3 of my grandkids. I promised my granddaughter that we would see manatee, sea turtles and dolphins. Today we marked the last 2 off our list. Thank you for the memorable day for this grandma. Myself, 3 of my kids and their significant others plus 5 grandkids all had a fabulous experience!

We had such a great time. This was the first time I've taken my family on the tour but my 3rd time. I learned something new every tour. I'll be back again for sure and I'll be telling anyone who asks that they should go too.
