4 Hour Private Boat Tour was awesome! The whole family enjoyed the ecotour, island/sandbar hopping and tubing! Captain John is cool, informative, fun and safety minded. This is the best way to enjoy the water without bringing your own boat. Well worth it and plan to come back to fish with Capt John next time.

Today, May 28, 2020, we went on the 2 pm Eco tour. We were greeted with a warm welcome and an easy check in at the office to begin. Shortly after check in we boarded the boat with Danielle and Captain Rob. We learned so much about the history and wildlife around us, all while enjoying a nice breeze on the boat. Both informative and fun!!

A stop to a sandbar/island area to collect shells was a delight. Capt. Rob even took his flip flops off and went in knee deep water to grab a she'll my husband spotted from shore. Danielle helped identify and gather shells too. It was so nice to chat and share the excitement of our finds with them.

We will definitely be making regular trips out with them and bringing our out of town visitors too.

Thanks to the staff and crew! 👏👍🛥️🐚🐬

We did the four hour backwater fishing trip in October. Capt. Doc was very helpful and kind. He is a good conversationalist and knowledgeable about the area. The morning was the most successful time of our excursion. My husband caught a 23" Drum; it put up quite a fight and was exciting to watch it being brought in. The remainder of the trip was not as bountiful, but seeing Tarpon, manatees, and dolphins was well worth the journey. We will definitely do this again the next time we are in the area.

A few days before that we took a ride on the dolphin and manatee tour, also an incredible tour. The whole crew was super helpful and super friendly!

Our 8 and 5 year old sons have been wanting to fish in the ocean like on the show Catching Monsters but also wanted to see wild life and find some seashells. I contacted Ponce inlet water sports and they recommended chartering a boat with Captain John. Our 4 hour fishing, dolphin and seashell finding boat ride was nothing short of fantastic. Captain John was great with our kids (and our 17 month old!!) and we all had so much fun. We caught several different type of fish and some were keepers that we took home and ate for dinner. I highly recommend them. We will be back next year!

I highly recommend the back water fishing with captain John!!! He is an amazing guide and a genuinely nice person! We had so much fun, he told us a little about the area and got us set up quickly. We caught 8 fish in a little over an hour (4 different species) and then on our way back he stopped so we could look for shells. We then got a surprise and saw a storm rolling in. He got us back fast and safe before it started raining! We appreciate the friendliness and the professionalism of the entire crew! Thank you all so much for a great time!!

We had a great time. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The tour was different than other boat tours I have taken in the fact that they took you to a nice beach and let you get off and pick up shells and explore a little. I would definitely take this tour again.

We went on the dolphin and manatee tour. We thought we was guaranteed to see them but it turns out you are not guaranteed. We didn’t see anything other than birds. They said they didn’t see anything the tour in front of us either. Our kids was disappointed as well as the adults. We had 9 people in our group. We felt like it was a waste of money. The crew was nice.

Captain Doc and Captain Kristy were the best. Kept all of us entertained with facts and interesting tidbits of information regarding the estuarian habitat and inhabitants in addition to some of the history of the area. Everyone caught fish and special attention was given to the kids who were having as much fun as anyone on the boat, without taking away anything from any adults on board. Would definitely recommend the trip for a fun day and fishing as well. Very educational for Arizona people... enjoyed all of it!!!

We have had the best experience with this company. This is my first time in Daytona Beach and we have spent 3 days of our week long vacation with Ponce Inlet Water Sports. Their staff is top notch which sets them above others in the area. Jiffy who works inside is not only knowledge about everything you’d possibly want to do on the water but patient and cares about your experience. He’s first class! Haley, Captain Rob and Captain John where also so knowledgeable and quite funny as we took the Dolphin & Manatee Tour. This was such a relaxing experience. These three were so funny and made our experience so much fun!

If you’re in this part of Florida, please make sure you put this on your list of “must do’s!” You won’t regret it!

I chose this activity because of all the great reviews and it surpassed my expectations. Capt. Jack and his mate/guide Kristy were amazing. We saw dolphins several times as well as other local wildlife and learned so much about the ecosystem. The guide even caught a jellyfish to bring aboard to show us and let the children hold and touch. When we stopped to look for shells at a small island Kristy was immediately available to take great pics of people with the lighthouse in the background. I highly recommend the 90 minute eco tour, it’s fun for all ages!

LOVED IT! Went on the 4 hour fishing tour this morning and it was awesome! My daughter has special needs and the Captain and crew Kristi I believe were so good with her! Woman on our boat caught a SHARK! Incredible to see - the crew helped her but let her do all the fighting and reeling. I caught a puffer fish! We all caught many mangrove snappers and when we came back the Captain cleaned and filet them and the shark! Dinner will be delicious!
We also saw dolphins, osprey and sting Rays. The crew was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I would go again and highly recommend to anyone. Reasonable price too.

They truly care about the needs and experience of their clients. After more than a year of working on our “Burial at Sea” for my daughter, we finally were able to accomplish it. Not only are they respectful but they went out of their way to make it beyond amazing. They filled out a burial certificate with exact coordinates, wind speeds and wave height. Captain John helped with pictures and even circled the site so we could video. Then, after we finished our ceremony he took us to see the dolphins......

Ponce Inlet Water Sports is beyond amazing. I highly recommend them.

The very last day of our Florida vacation was the highlight of the trip! We booked a paddleboard excursion with Bryan, and, after we got the hang of it, it was the coolest experience ever! I am not the most coordinated person...I fell twice right off the bat...but Bryan's explicit instructions kept me and my husband and daughter balanced and loving the feel of paddleboarding for the remainder of our 2 hour tour! We were fortunate to see a hog-nosed ray, a stingray, jellyfish, cormorants, and other sea birds and wildlife...not too shabby for first-timers! Thank you, Bryan, for your expertise and patience. You made our first paddleboarding experience incredible and unforgettable, and it was amazing to bask in the beauty of Ponce Inlet and its wildlife!!! I want to do this again! Amazing adventure!

I especially liked that the Captain was able to answer my question about how the lighthouse has survived the storms it has weathered over time... they were courteous were wonderful with answering questions.. when we started seeing the dolphins they took time to make sure we had the best opportunity to see them... seeing a dolphin in its natural habitat was on my bucket list... thanks to Ponce Inlet Water Sports I can cross that off my list... I’d do the trip again without a doubt and the price was absolutely affordable... I recommend them with a full 5 stars.... Wonderful adventure... THANK YOU....

Thank you Captain John and Ponce Inlet Water Sports for an awesome private charter fishing trip!!!!!

We had a goal to go fishing while visiting New Symrna​ Beach. Kinda disappointed that the swells were too big to go deep sea fishing...but we found a place that did "backwater fishing". We figured why not, we wanna go fishing! And the price was right.

Not really knowing what to expect, we packed some beer and sandwiches (and sunscreen, of course!) and headed to Ponce Inlet.

Easy peasy 'check-in'. A short drive to the marina and we were ready to go! A private boat just for us...how cool! Captain John was super chill and welcoming...which we were so thankful for!

We not only had a memorable time fishing (caught 11 different species!), but also saw manatees and dolphins! It was magical :)

Captain John is so knowledgeable about the area it felt like we were on a sight seeing cruise!

Freshly filleted fish that we walked over to the rum bar next door and they cooked it up for us. Delish!

I will definitely come back again whenever I'm in the area and would recommend it to anyone looking to have an amazing Floridan adventure!

My husband and I took the dolphin manatee tour today and it was awesome! The captain of our boat and our other tour guider was so informative about all the areas we toured, the sea life, and also kept us laughing frequently. It was so cool to dock during the tour at the seashell beach and have the fun of searching for shells. So enjoyable and relaxing. The price of the tour was very affordable. A great time! I highly recommend it!

Our family of 5 had a great time fishing with Capt. Doc and first mate McKenzie. We were catching fish within 15 minutes of leaving the dock. We ended up with a pretty big catch and had a fantastic time. Capt. Doc even cut our fish and bagged them for us. This will be our go to fishing location every year when we visit Ponce Inlet.

I booked our boat tour for Monday the 14th of August. A little confused when we first arrived but once everything was taken care of money etc., it went smoothly. Our price was quoted as $300 but when we got there Jiffy said it was $350 not a big deal. We met Captain John and he brought us on board. It was a 4 hour excursion with my family a total of 6. We planned on tubing, fishing and island hoping. We did do fishing and island hoping and that was fine with all of us. We saw Dolphins that was so cool to see and baby one too. Amazing weather and can't say enough good things about Captain John! He helped my grandson's fish well he helped all of us fish and even let Carl drive the boat he was in heaven. When we stopped on the island's we found sand dollars and crabs and sea shells that was so much fun too. Would recommend this to anyone and everyone who likes to go out for a couple of hours and enjoy the scenery and catching some fish and just relaxing and seeing the beautiful dolphins. We all had a terrific time. Thanks Captain John for making our day a super one. The Westphal's from Wisconsin!!!!

We had a fantastic time chartering a boat with Captain John. Booking the service was easy and we chose how to spend our day! Capt. John guided us to some great fishing spots, baited our lines and was super informative about all our catches! We spent a little time cooling off at a tidal pool while the kids tossed a casting net and hunted for hermit crabs. We can't wait to do this again!!!

Today my growing crew of 8 went on the eco tour with Captain Samantha and Danielle. It was wonderful, peaceful, educational, and we were excited to be able to see the mantatee. Although, this mantatee was in distress, so the boat stopped to call it in and get help for the momma and her devoted baby that followed her. I would love to read any updates on our friend from today. Thank you for a wonderful experience and knowledge that was shared with us. Although, we didn't see any dolphins, but that is nature and to be expected so no worries. I highly recommend this 90 minute tour for an educational and relaxing experience.

Great day to be on the water with the family. Five of us did the backwater fishing with Captain Doc, we hit about 4 spots and caught about 30 fish, seven keepers. Doc was great, knowledgeable and attentive. Kids had fun and we got plenty of bites so they never got bored. The boat held ten but we were the only ones on board so it was sweet having the deck to ourselves. At the end, Doc fileted our catch and we took them to the restaurant next door to get them cooked. Great day, thanks Captain Doc!

Great trip for our family. Many manatee and dolphin sightings Youngest daughter loved it. She is shy and doesn't talk to strangers. But she did talk to Capt. Sam and First Mate Danielle. They were the most awesome ppl to have us aboard their boat. Very well versed on their job. These two made the trip so much more enjoyable The use of their fire bucket was very much appreciated. Since it was a first for them bit i didn't get the pic of you two and my wife holding the bucket Lol. Thank you for everything We will recommend this company to anyone

Before you read my review you should know I'm in no way affiliated with the company. Check Trip Advisor for a few reviews I've done there.

Best. Boat. Tour. Ever.

Captain John with his punny humor, charisma, knowledge and experience led our expedition. His willingness to stop the boat for almost 15 minutes so we didn't just slowly idle past something we saw in the distance created an amazing moment for all of us. Because of it, we saw Dolphins. A BABY DOLPHIN! Up close! A lot of others on the boat saw a manatee. I didn't get to see him or her because I got caught up in the beautiful view all around me and the feel of the of the boat moving through the water. I love being out on a boat and don't get to do it very often... not being a millionaire. � Not for a moment did I feel unsafe.

I experienced the quiet vibration of awe when everyone on the boat went still and watched these beautiful beings we share our world with in their natural habitat. (A first for me.) And, wow, the cathedral like vibration of excitement we all felt when we first saw and met them. I don't have words for that moment. Thanks, Captain John. That'll stay with me forever.

We stopped on an island so everyone could check out the terrain and gather shells. Through pure luck and Captain John checking the time of it, we had the extraordinary good fortune of seeing a shuttle launch while we were there. Wowzers

The Amazing Danielle (It really is her job title. Seriously. She more than lived up to it.)...How do I count the ways of the pure awesomeness that is her? I've been on a few boat tours since moving to Florida and, years ago, was a tour guide for the Gone With The Wind Festival tours back in GA. Being a tour guide isn't an easy job but she made it look effortless. Her passion about her job was obvious. She was friendly, personable and eloquent. There were no stupid questions. Her knowledge and passion about the history of all we saw, geographically, and marine life was almost frightening at how extensive it was. I love it when a tour guide winds up feeling like a friend... not something I've experienced since moving to FL. � She did. Rare & Priceless.

I have early, onset Parkinson's and was given great, non dramatic assistance. Never felt self conscious.

So, there ya go. My review is a novella because I'm a writer and have tried to cover as much as possible. I hope this gets you to the right place if you're looking for a great experience on a boat tour. I only booked to treat a visiting friend. I'm so glad I did.

First we went paddle boarding with Brian. That was by far the most fun and informative trip we have ever done. He was a genuine guy and shared his beer. He recommended us to John for fishing. John was hilarious and extremely good at what he does. We couldn't drop our lines in without catching fish. Both were super reasonably priced and very personable. Would recommend to anyone and their company is what will bring me back to Daytona/ Port Orange.

Me and my family have been coming to Daytona beach for vacation since I was born. I use to go out on the critter fleet for fishing. But 4 years ago I found out more info about Ponce Inlet Watersports and they had a backwater fishing trip. Me and my family have been going there ever since. This year we upped and booked a private charter in July for deep sea fishing. The captains have been great and very knowledgeable. Keep up the great work y'all and can't wait for many more trips to come.

It was awesome! The captain and the narrator were both SUPER friendly, as was the staff in the office. We were warned that after the hurricane we most likely wouldn't see any manatees because it disrupted them, which was a bit disappointing. We did however get to see a small pod of dolphins. The narrator was so informative while we were watching them and was also telling us about the bird wildlife as well. They took us to the disappearing island and explained the history of the area as well. Next time I come to Florida I will definitely be coming back here!! They offer a variety of things besides the eco tours.

This is the second time we have done the Dolphin & Manatee Tour. Once in 2015 and again this year 1016. Captain Doc and First Mate Eric were fun, knowledgeable, and First Mate Eric even got off the boat at the island to help us hunt Hermit and Fiddler Crabs. In 2015 we saw dolphins and manatees. This year the water was colder, so no manatees. But, the dolphins came out to play around the boat and we were treated to a great experience! Thank you! We will be back next vacation.

The kids even had time for some tubing! They all had a blast! The inlet is absolutely gorgeous, we could not have asked for a more beautiful day! Made some great family memories today and we can't wait to do it again! We would definitely recommend Ponce Inlet Water Sports...they are professional, friendly, fun and made it so easy for us...they took care of EVERYTHING! So worth the $! We will request "Captain John" again and you should too! Thanks for an incredible day John & Jiffy, we all loved it!!!!

Me and my family had been staying im Daytona for almost 2 weeks. We got sick of only going 'souvenir shopping' so I decided to look up fun things around the area. We decided to go on the Eco Tour 'Dolphins & Manatees'. One of the best decision made so far. We got a couple seashells on the island they took us to and we saw alot of fish, hermit crabs, a baby octopus, and a manatee!
Shout out to our storyteller/narrator Eric!! He kept all of smiling and laughing.
Thank you!

We randomly called Ponce Inlet Watersports because we thought the prices looked great. We did a Private Charter Boat. John was our boat driver/ awesome fisherman guide. He kept our hooks baited at all times which allowed my husband to enjoy fishing. He was great with the kids and would highly recommend this place and John as a guide. Thanks John for a fun experience and Klayton's favorite part of our whole vacation! And we even saw dolphins twice!
