We did the 2 hour pontoon with Captain Steve and it was awesome! He was knowledgeable and funny. We had 2 children w us and he was very accommodating! He also made sure we were satisfied w our trip before heading in! He made it such a memorable experience for us!

We booked a last minute trip to the beach for Fall Break. We decided to rent a pontoon boat for the day. The staff is amazing and the boat was a brand new pontoon! We spent the day exploring all of the recommended places. We saw a ton of dolphins and found lots of hermit crabs. The picture I posted is a dolphin swimming near our boat. If you are thinking about renting a boat for the day give them a call! They are the best!

The rental experience was one to die for . These people are very professional and know how to make you feel like family. He told me every spot to drop a line and every spot to hang out and chill. Then when we returned he was already waiting for us , even though we was an hour early without warning. If you want to rent some water equipment this is the place.

Great Fun, Excellent Service TripAdvisor

Enjoyed a afternoon on the water aboard one of Ho2's pontoon boats. Steve and Dee really give the extra effort to make the experience one to remember. Thank you Steve and Dee. The gang from Iceland.

I highly recommend Ho2pensacola for your adventure out on the water. We rented a boat and had a blast. The owners are very nice and gave great advise on restaurants on the water and a beautiful beach to go out to. Can’t wait to go again soon!

Dee and Steve at HO2 helped to make a great vacation for us! They were easy to deal with and super friendly. The girls had a blast on the paddle boards. Loved the pontoon boat as well!
