    What to Expect
    Our Pontoon boat rentals all have quiet, fuel efficient 4 stroke motors for your cruising pleasure up and down the Homosassa. With bench seating they are set up perfectly for a day of cruising with cocktails or fishing with the family. A Bimini top provides protection from the Florida sun. Pontoons are user friendly and very comfortable!
    * 18-25 foot Pontoon Boat
    * 4 stroke engine (40-60 horsepower) 
    * Plush bench seating for 6-12 (depending upon boat choice)
    * For Moderately experienced boaters
    * Half Day (4 hour) rentals available at 8am or 12:45pm. Please note that half day rentals are not long enough to go scalloping during scallop season. 
    * Full Day (8 hour) rentals available at 8am.
    * Fuel Included

    When renting any vessel at River Safaris, you must stay within the channel Markers and the designated waterways for your own safety and the protection of our fleet.

    They overbooked and had no more nice pontoons so they gave us a crappy one w/ the pvc chairs. It was so slow and uncomfortable. Worst company. We drove 2 hours to get there so it wasn't like we had a choice. Would not recommend...More
