30a PONTOON RENTAL
Welcome to 30a Pontoon Rental in Santa Rosa Beach.  30a Rental Company offers a combination between the largest, fastest and most luxurious pontoon rental boat on the panhandle.   Instead of driving all the way to Destin or Crab Island, 30a Pontoon rental is located just minutes from Rosemary Beach, Seaside, Inlet Beach, Grayton Beach, Blue Mountain Beach, Sandestin, Miramar Beach, Seacrest, Seagrove, etc.  

 

Renting a pontoon rental boat while on vacation is a favorite for 30a vacationers.   The Choctowhatchee bay is a fabulous waterway filled with all types of restaurants, beautiful bayou’s, the Famous Crab Island, and so much more.   A pontoon rental boat is the ultimate way to explore these beautiful and fun venues.
 

Why a 150 hp Pontoon Rental Boat?-
A typical fishing boat, or ski boat is fun, but not enough space for a large party.  Pontoon rental boats allow up to 12 guest to enjoy a day together on the bay.  Most pontoon rental boats are 40-60 hp.  Our pontoon rental boats are 150 hp tritoons.  A tritoon is more buoyant than a pontoon and the extra horsepower will get you where you need to go on the bay 2-3 times faster than the typical pontoon rental.   A more buoyant pontoon rental boat also makes for a smoother and faster trip.

How Big is the Bay?

The bay in Santa Rosa Beach extends from the 331 Bridge to Crab Island in Destin.  While you are on our pontoon rental boats you can visit many of the beautiful bayous with exquisite homes in Santa Rosa Beach, Miramar Beach, Sandestin, and Destin.  

What is there to do?

While on our pontoon rental boats enjoy incredible restaurants right on the water including the famous Dewey Destin’s, and everyone’s favorite, LULU’s restaurant.  Lulu’s Restaurant is owned by Jimmy Buffett’s sister.  Lulu’s offers indoor and outdoor dining, a fun beach with activities for kids, and an outdoor bar right on the water.  All you have to do is pull your pontoon rental boat up, anchor securely and walk up to the beach. 

Can we shop somewhere on the bay?

Want to do some shopping while on our pontoon rental boats?  There are two places to shop and dine while on our pontoon rentals.  Just minutes from our pontoon rental dock is the Sandestin community and the popular Baytown Warf.  Baytown Warf has tons of great shopping, a zip line, a climbing wall, great restaurants, etc.   That’s not all.  While out on our pontoon rental boats you can visit the famous Destin Harbor.  Destin Harbor is packed with great restaurants, shopping, a climbing wall, art gallaries, etc.   The Destin Harbor is only ¼ mile boat ride from Crab Island.   Restaurants include AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar,  Harry T’s, Dewey Destin’s, Marina Café, Boathouse Oyster Bar, Gilligan’s, etc.  
 

What is Crab Island?
