Captain Shay provides a wonderful, knowledgeable and very personable excursion. There were four of us in our party. He made the entire trip fun and eventful. We saw dolphins, a sea turtle, and dove for sand dollars. I would highly recommend this experience over any group dolphin tour boat. He even uses a drone to make awesome videos of the tour. All I can say is this was a great adventure. Thanks Captain Shay
Wonderful day of snorkeling ... sand dollar diving ... seashell finding and swimming with the dolphins! Thanks for taking my family out today ! ❤️🦈
Definitely would recommend!!
Awesome day with Captain Shay! 🐬🐬🐬
Awesome day with Captain Shay! 🐬🐬🐬
Had a great day on the water with Paradise Pontoon!!
Check out this clip of our excursion with Capt Shay this past week. You don't get this on a regular dolphin cruise and good luck finding them on your own if you rent a pontoon yourself. You get the best of both worlds with Paradise Pontoons. You get a great outing with your family on a nice pontoon boat, and you don't have to worry about finding anything on your own as Capt Shay knows where all the action is.

“Arianna’s Artic Blast Bachelorette Cruise”. The first of 2022 and of the 50 or so Bachelorette trips I perform each season, none have been or could be as enjoyable, laid back or as cold as this one! But Arianna, Caroline, DJ Monica,No Swim Sadie, Sarah with a H, Genevieve (the only such namesake to grace my vessel) and Kristina with a K were not only a joy to be around in such extreme conditions, they made is so that when the trip was over and coming in from the cold was an option- saying goodbye and warming up was one I did only because they choose to do it first! May the good Lord bless you Ariana and Andrew as you set off on your journey of life together and don’t forget you have the company‘s gift to use when the 2 of you return as a married couple!

I had the pleasure of having Matthew at my side the last 2 trips I performed and this 3 year old is destined for great things. His sense of humor and intelligence for a child his age made me fell inadequate! What a pleasure he was/is and I can't wait to see him and the Robinson family in the future as hid body grows into the ultra mature mind he already possess.

With temperatures pushing 70 this Thursday and Friday, it's an ideal time to enjoy the Bottlenose dolphins with a nice Egg Nogg concoction aboard your own private pontoon charter! We're practically giving them away at $295.00 a trip, for as long as you please, so take the family out to visit the Destin's most loved resident's and see the most incredible sunset while your there.

12/11/2021

The sunsets this time of year are incredible. Some of you might have met Shad during your charter, here's a pic of him on land where his focus turns from spotting dolphins to chasing a ball!

Taken Nov.21, 2021 during Travis & "loyal"Lindsey's charter with us. Lindsey and Travis own a unit at Jetty East on Holiday Isle and use my services every time they come to town. In the half a dozen times they've taken my trip, I doubt they've viewed as many dolphins so close as they did this day.

It’s all Stephanie’s fault! Tuesday,Wednesday, Thursday I’m doing private charters aboard “The Twisted Sea”,pictured here, for only $249.00. I’ll even let ya’ll tell me what time we’re leaving and returning! After 5 days on land terra firma is wearing me down as always. I’m going to hang with those who aren’t political, have no use for a monetary system and the evil around every aspect of it and aren’t required by their government to do this or do that. The dolphins surface together, dive together and just because one has a unusual looking dorsal fin, (normally humans are the reason for that) that dolphin is still one of the pod, in fact, it’s usually leading the way. #dolphinlove #dolphins #DolphinsNation#landsucks

Taggin along with Captain Nick of the Sea Quest as the Bottlenose dolphin catch air from his wake wave. Thanks Captain Nick, the 2nd best tour on the Emerald Coast!

Do You Ever See Sharks in Destin, Captain?

Only every day, dozens of them. But don't worry sweetie, Hollywood has made them out to be something they are not. What you can expect to see on a Paradise Pontoon Chartered Boat Tour.

Tired of seeing just pics of the Bottlenose dolphins? OK. Here's a video instead! Wednesday's trip with Nick's crew.

I’ve had some great days days on the water these past 5 years in business, but today takes over first place of all time for me! The marine life viewed today was extraordinary. The flat calm emerald green water with visibility clear to the bottom to 25’ left nowhere to hide the 100’s of dolphin, rays and spinner sharks who must be in breeding/spawning mode because there wasn’t a docile creature one in the Gulf on this day. All were super active and visible where ever we looked! The very reason these waters in which I’m fortunate enough to calm my home waters, will never be traded for another or considered anything other than the richest in the world. #emeraldcoastcannotbebeat

The water at Crab Island has finally regained its emerald green appearance.Not since the rains came in early June has the incoming tide appear this way.

Go First Class! Charter our Luxurius Pontoons and Let our Captain Be Your Guide.

True enjoyment of the Emerald Coast’s offshore playground Crab Island is to be had with our fun and knowledgeable Captain at the helm of your private pontoon charter. Kick back, put your arm around your Mrs. and have a cold drink as Captain takes your party to see the Bottlenose dolphins within inches of the boat, points out the loggerhead and green turtles and schools of spinner sharks and all the diverse marine life that inhabit the waters just within a few 100 feet of the shore.

We are the only pontoon rental company offering this service to our customers with Licensed Captains and we don’t stop there. Also included in this service is drone video and pictures of your Charter. Whenever the boat is at anchor and secure, our Captain will fly the drone and capture your family enjoying Crab Island and the surrounding area from views up to 400 feet. All footage is downloaded to your phone before you disembark. All complimentary! Diving for Sand Dollars has become a favorite activity for many, even after spending a good amount of time at Crab Island and getting so close to dolphins they could almost touch them. All these activities and more are possible during your trip. Every Charter is catered to our customer’s desires. Tube or swim with the Bottlenose dolphins in their natural environment, as seen above. Multi person inflatable Island rafts (with drink holders and built in coolers) are inflated for you at Crab Island and all the water toys you can imagine are at your disposal!
