Top 5 Reasons to Rent a Pontoon from Shell Island Pontoon Boats

A favorite spot for locals and visitors alike, Shell Island is an undeveloped barrier island running east to west between the Gulf of Mexico and  St. Andrew Bay. Here you’ll find Florida at its most natural, where graceful sand dunes, coastal scrub forest, pine hammocks, and an inland lake provide the perfect home for nesting shorebirds, and all manner of coastal creatures, including ghost crabs and endangered species such as Choctawhatchee beach mice, plovers, and sea turtles.

Taking children on the water can sometimes be challenging, but with Shell Island Pontoon Boats you will be able to rest assured that your child will be safe. Our pontoons have plenty of deck space and seating for everyone. Each boat comes with a Bimini which  will offer a shady area on your boat’s deck where you can let your kids stay out of the sun’s harmful UV rays on those really hot days on the water.

Shell Island Pontoon Boats is located within St. Andrews State Park. Besides boasting a mile-and-a-half of pristine beaches for fishing and swimming, St. Andrews State Park  also offers the chance for visitors to stroll through pines, dunes and coastal plant communities, or set up camp in the onsite campground. Spotting alligators, snorkeling around the Gulf, or a family picnic  are all great activities to enjoy at the State Park.

Double-decker & Single Pontoons Available.

We offer both double decker pontoons as well as single level. Whether you are a big kid at heart or a seven year old, our double-decker pontoons are sure to delight. Slide down the back of the pontoon on two water-slides; or enjoy the sun on one of the comfortable seats up front for some fun in the sun.
