Spent the day exploring Shell Island via a Pontoon boat rental @ St. Andrews State Park. The gentleman helping us with the rental was very friendly and showed us what we needed to know. He also pointed out some of the better places to find shells. It is a MUST DO on any travelers list in PCB

Wonderful place to rent! The boat was clean and in great condition, the employees were friendly and very helpful, and, of course, the area is gorgeous! We have rented from 2 different businesses in the area and State Park Boat Rental is the best. We had such a great time that we went back the next day and rented again.... More

Very nice equipment, service was excellent, everything it should have been and didn't break the bank. The girl who wheped us was a snow boarder in the winter and a boat renter in the summer.....she was very helpful and knowledgable. (sorry you dropped your phone in the water)

We have rented from State Park for several years. They have just moved from St. Andrews park to behind Capt. Anderson s. Great friendly people and new boats.The other rental places can't compare for price and equipment.

Our business is located inside St Andrews State Park. Unfortunately some GPS systems do not give great directions to the park. We do try our best to help customers with directions. Dolphins are usually a much bigger part of our tours. This tour however was during the week of Hurricane Isaac & dolphins interaction suffers when seas are rough in... More
