Absolutely loved being on the boat we managed to see a few dolphins. I highly recommend visiting for a dolphin tour. We will be going back again. Loved seeing one of my favorite lighthouses also.
We went today September 3, 2021 and please forgive me I don’t remember their names but the captain and the crew are both females very educational. love seeing the dolphins and learning all about the area. Will definitely come again the next time I am visiting Florida. They also recommended going to the marine center which we did before hand, also very educational and only five dollars per person. we did not visit the lightHouse unfortunately. Maybe next time. All in all very enjoyable experience

Amazing day with Ponce Inlet Watersports! The captain and first mate made it most enjoyable with engaging information of the area while servicing the waterways from removal of any garbage or debry. They even interacted with my young children while making them have fun but also feel safe! We did see a few dolphins and other species native to the area! Very reasonably priced and it great boat ride around the light house!

Amazing boat trip today with the Ponce Inlet Watersports today!! The captain and first mate made the trip super exciting and informative although not much dolphin or manatee sitings!! Well worth the trip and reasonably priced!! Thank you!! Will continue to bring out of state guests to your services in the future!!!

Update: I forgot to mention how accommodating and attentive the whole boat staff where to my little ones who asked questions upon questions and then spoke about the new Luca movie (under the sea creatures) and with out a beat didn't ruin the imagination of a little boy but encouraged it!!

They are very informed on the biology and ecology of the area. I did not expect to have so much fun!

Gina & Captain Dan were awesome: friendly, experienced and funny! We were thankful to have found Ponce Inlet Watersports after a company in Clearwater canceled our dolphin tour at the last minute due to boat maintenance issues. And the Ponce Inlet price was phenomenal, more than worth it for the high quality experience, boat, and staff. It was fun to see the dolphins up close! Will definitely return with my family at a later date!

My family and I decided to do the 10am dolphin and Manatee tour during our vacation on 6/29. We had such a fun time. Our son was so excited to get on a boat and search for wildlife. They provide adult and children lifejackets which is a HUGE plus. We got to see some of the native birds and a pod of dolphins too. I love that captain Tom will stop the boat and turn around when wildlife is spotted so everyone on the boat can see. Our guide Bailey was INCREDIBLY knowlageable about the area and wildlife too. The stop at shell island was also cool. You are able to get off the boat and walk the beach, get in the water, shell hunt ect. They provide shell bags for everyone too, and the shells are plentiful on this island. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Very family friendly, affordable, the staff is professional and funny too. Check them out on social media as well, they will post pictures from your tour also. Thank you captain Tom and tour guide Bailey!

We took my sister out to sea for the last time. A small informal celebration. JIffy and Captain Josh were absolutely wonderful - very caring, sincere and patience.
With our time schedule, Jiffy said he would take care of everything...AND he did !
Josh knew exactly when to help us and when to step back. His professionalism made our trip most memorable. Not only that, he's quite a character !! ...
For sure, we strongly and highly recommend this company AND Captain Josh .

Captain and first mate very friendly and educational about Dolphins and manatees. Child friendly . Allowed them to sit at steering wheel of boat . Both of my nephews got too . One was 8 the other 11 (looks older ) but the captain allowed him to do when going faster on boat . This truly meant a lot to me and I know it effected Isaac. Thank you again . The best money spent on our trip from Kentucky . First time to Daytona area for me and first time ocean experience for my nephews . Highly recommend ! Also the first mate helped me on and off boat , which I truly appreciated .

This was a really amazing experience for my family & I. We had nothing less of a great time on our dolphin tours. The girls were super nice & very knowledgeable. It was so beautiful & definitely worth the price. The kids loved stopping & getting off the boat to treasure hunt. The ice cream was delicious & all around a very memorable experience. They have so much to offer we will definitely be back. Highly recommended.

Our tour was amazing! And the tour guide are awesome! It was so beautiful on the tour and got to see a lot. And we got to see them save a sea turtle who was hurt badly. The tour was truly amazing. Fantastic communication. Answered all your questions. Very family friendly! You can see the passion they have for the ocean.

Absolutely fantastic boat tour! It was easy to make a reservation and they communicated with our group all the way until our tour. We actually got a flat tire in our rental on the way and they even waited for us to arrive. Tom the captain and Tom the biologist were awesome! And we actually rescued an injured sea turtle ❤️ I would definitely come back! Thank you guys for such an amazing experience! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My Daughter and I took the Dolphin Manatee 90 minute boat tour and really enjoyed it! Right from the parking lot to the boat, the staff was amazing, helpful, and kind. Our boat tour started a bit late due to a large group running behind, but the crew was fantastic. The cruise itself was beautiful, on a hot sunny day, no manatees, but a handful of dolphins, birds, and jelly fish. A quick stop at a little beach was nice and the crew really cares about the environment and the animals which is really nice. Highly recommend and we will be back!

We were in for bike week and took a 90 minute dolphin Manatee tour which we were talked into by one of the employees. I couldn’t believe the quality of the trip for the price.

We saw many dolphins in the wild and although we didn’t see any manatees, We got a very thorough education about The channels, inlets, and safety while navigating them, as well as a front row seat to the wildlife preservation efforts of the staff. It is clear that everyone on the boat had a heart toward preserving the animals. The animals seem the priority for the crew and that was very touching to see. We learned about all of the wildlife that we did spot along the shoreline. We learned about mangroves and oyster beds. (Ouch!) we had a great stop at Shell Island as well. I mean the island was just OK but my smoking friends were really happy for the break. It doesn’t hurt that an ice cream boat showed up “conveniently“ upon our arrival and one of my biker friends decided to treat the boat. If you are a smoker I highly recommend this move so that the tour keeps the stop at Shell Island. I mean there really isn’t a lot of shelling to be done there... do you know what I mean?LOL.

Captain Daniel and first mate Amber treated everybody with dignity and respect no matter how they were dressed. In fact,every staff member from the parking attendant to the trainees It was an excellent, customer-first focused individual. Terrific outing. highly recommend.

This was a lot of fun! My 2 year old got to honk the horn and we saw quite a few dolphins. My 15 year old thought it was mediocre, but she also believes in horoscopes, so she’s not one to rely on for opinions. Lol. Beautiful tour, great company, would definitely do it again!

I cannot thank Doc and Ashley enough for my first time fishing experience. Very customer oriented, taught me to bate a hook, cast and fish and I brought in four fish, a nice red, a black drum, and two jacks. Great trip, would absolutely fish with them again.
Doc knew exactly where to go to hit the fishing holes. Doc filleted all the fish for us and then we headed to “Off the Hook” up the street from the marina and they cooked all our fish for us. Delicious! Thank you again Doc and Ashley!!!

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 took a private fishing trip with Capt. John and had a great time. Fishing was a little slow to start, but Capt. John kept working and put us on some fish towards the end of our trip. We had great conversation and were able to catch 6 or 7 different species of fish, and took 2 red fish, a black drum and a blue fish home. We will definitely come back if we get the chance....thank you!!

Overall, the staff is amazing and so humorous. I had a very great time from seeing the dolphins to getting off on the island across from the light house. I 1000000% recommend to those visiting Daytona Beach and Florida as a whole, definitely worth the money! :)
We’ve been fishing with Water Sports for 10 years. Every Ormond vacation we come fishing. Use to fish with Capt. John and been with Captain Doc and Kristie the past two years. Very knowledgeable, help you with everything, and get a eco trip along with the fishing. You won’t find a better place on the Atlantic. Top notch! We tell everyone!

Definitely recommend checking this place out if you get the chance. I went parasailing in Key West and bought the photographers SD card with the pictures and videos and they were so terrible. The pictures and videos that Ponce Inlet Water Sports take are so crystal clear!

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!

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 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.

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!

Around awesome trip. Definitely will be back next time we are on vacation!
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!

It was fascinating and the highlight of our Florida trip! THANK YOU!

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!

They lived up to my expectations... which isn’t easy... I was very happy with the experience... the Captain and tour guide had wonderful upbeat personalities and they really engaged with their guests on the boat... they took their time to give us interesting facts about the birds and dolphins we saw... they gave information about some of the homes we saw along the way..... 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!

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!

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!!!
