I always have to include nature in my vacations so this group was a good choice.

The dophins were popping up all around us, mostly at a distance, but a few times they were closer so we could see them beautifully as they surfaced. The boat was quite comfortable, not crowded and well shaded with great commentary.
I’ve taken a lot of boat tours in my life, and this one was at the top of the heap! We had an afternoon to burn at Ponce Inlet... read more and we took the 2-hour tour with Captain Josh. It was just my family of 5, including 3 girls and Josh was awesome at keeping everyone entertained. When he asked us what we wanted to do, I told him, just do your thing, we’re good with any trip! He did not disappoint!
We saw the inlet up close and got a great rundown of local geography and history. Josh was awesome at pointing out points of interest on land and the water. Then he put us right on the dolphins. We saw so many, we lost count. My kids went bonkers when we spotted some baby dolphins. Being a private tour (the only way to go), Josh was able to get us up close and personal to the dolphins and was very knowledgeable about dolphins in general.
We finished up with a stop to fill our pockets up with shells and our two hours were up before we knew it. Josh had some great commentary on the houses and marinas in the area. His boat handling skills were excellent and he is a very personable guide. Overall, we were all very happy with our tour. When we come back to Ponce, we’re looking him up!
AWESOME DAY kayaking, watching the dophin frolic, seeing sea turtles & manatees.

Captain John was great, put us on fish quickly and kept our teens entertained. When all was done, he cleaned the fish introduced us to Joey his pet egret (lol). The kids loved it all, got to catch fish, see dolphin and sea turtles, maybe a manatee. I would highly recommend this group. We've been here twice and they are 10 on the fun scale.

We planned a trip to Daytona and everyone wanted to fish again. This is our second time with Ponce Inlet. We arrived on time met with our Captain and... read more crew, Captain Ingraham and Gina. We started out and it was wonderful as usual. Found a spot to fish and we fished and fished some more. Sister caught the first one, and son caught several, grandsons also caught some. Some of us didn't but it's alright. Everyone didn't want to bait the hook so Gina helped them. I started to bait my own then my sister did it was great. After we fished we did some island hopping, we wanted to find sand dollars which we didn't, lots of sea shells. Overall great day we had a lot of fun. I'll always recommend Ponce to everyone that stays in or near Daytona. Thanks again Ponce for a wonderful time. The Westphal Family

First off, you have a real treasure in Captain John! He was awesome, funny, informative, he was great with my 2 and 7 year old! He MADE our... read more trip! We did the two hour private charter for backwater fishing and it was fun!
We started off by applying sunscreen to my son which “burned” his eyes. John immediately swung over to a sand bar and told Aiden to Cannonball off the boat and swim for a bit to clean his eyes.
He then took us to his secret spot where we caught 4 different species of fish. Without batting an eye made sure everyone was having a great time even the two year old when she got fussy. We never waited to have baited hooks and he didn’t say a word when I caught a few “ tree bass”.
We ended our two hours with sand dollar hunting on a sand bar. He even rushed us back to dock so we could beat a storm that was rolling in.
This trip was amazing and a heck of a value compared to ever other charter service I priced out. You can’t go wrong with these people!
Thank you again, we are already planning our next trip for next year!

We had Captain Danielle this time who was a fountain of knowledge. Danielle gave us loads of interesting information about the wildlife, eco system and fish. We had an brilliant time (as always) and highy HIGHLY recommend Danielle as a captain. 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! Thank you Captain Danielle for a brilliant day and thank you Ponce Inlet Watersports for always providing excellent customer service and a professional fun experience. We loved it so much we have booked two more 4 hour fishing trips this holiday!
