Explore Shell Island by Boat with Panama City Beach Pontoon Boat Rentals

Spend a day on the waters of St. Andrew Bay and the white sand beaches of Shell Island as the captain of your own pontoon boat from Panama City Beach Boat Rentals. It’s the best way to sightsee, picnic, and party on the water with a family or group of friends.

Enjoy a Day Aboard Your Own Pontoon Boat

Looking for the best way to enjoy a Shell Island beach day? A pontoon boat lets you cruise the clear blue waters of St. Andrew Bay and play on the sugar-white sands of Shell Island with your own private pleasure craft. Our Panama City Beach Boat Rental dock is located right in St. Andrews State Park and is the closest to Shell Island so you can get a big day of sun and fun started as soon as you cast off.

Play and Party on a Pontoon Boat

Safe, stable, and spacious, pontoon boats are ideal for families and groups of friends looking for adventure on the water and the perfect way to visit Shell Island. Pontoons – affectionately named “Party Barges” – are famous among recreational boaters for their ease of use and versatility. A flat bottom and shallow draft make it easy for pontoon boats to cruise in shallow water and pull up close to the shore. On the waters around Panama City Beach, pontoons are a favorite of visitors and locals alike.

A pontoon boat offers a wide deck, plenty of comfortable seating, lots of storage space for beach toys and picnic gear, a shade top, and a swim ladder. Pontoons are simply the best all-around watercraft for groups of up to 10 people looking to enjoy swimming, fishing, cruising the waterfront, or simply lounging around with a cold beverage. And Panama City Pontoon Boat Rentals now offers double-decker pontoons that feature seating for 12, an upper deck sunbathing platform, and twin water slides.

Enjoy the Freedom to Explore

A pontoon boat rental is very affordable, and with your own boat you are free to go where and do what you want. Find tucked-away coves and beaches. Snorkel the grass flats and along the jetties. Go out dolphin spotting. Try some fishing. Anchor up to have a floating headquarters and lunch spot for your day on Shell Island. Whether you are an experienced boater or a first-time captain, piloting your own pontoon boat will guarantee an unforgettable day of fun.
