A boating adventure with Fun in the Sun Boat Rides is a must do if you’re visiting Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, Navarre, or Perdido Key.

A boating adventure with Fun in the Sun Boat Rides is a must do if you’re visiting Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, Navarre, or Perdido Key. We have numerous pickup locations throughout the area and can even pick you up at your private dock if you’re staying on the water

Fun in the Sun is owned and operated by a group of the best fishing guides in Pensacola. When you climb aboard with one of our captains you are in the hands of someone with extensive experience and someone who knows the area and local waters as well as anyone.
Our goal is for you to have a fun and exciting time while on our boats. With that being said we basically tailor each trip around what you and your family or friends want to do. All of our trips are private cruises with a designated captain provided. This way we can ensure a more one on one experience and keep the crowd on the boat limited to your group of family and friends.There’s a long list of things to do, but we can dolphin watch, visit beaches only accessible by boat, or hit up one of the local waterfront restaurants or bars.

Coming to Pensacola and not spending some time on a boat is a huge mistake, so if fishing doesn’t peak your interest and climbing aboard a boat with fifty other people isn’t what you classify a good time give us a call and let’s setup a private trip for your group.

Testimonials

My wife and children were dying to go on one of the dolphin tours,but I was not interested in being on a boat with fifty other tourist, so we opted for a private trip. The fam saw all of the dolphins they cared to and I was able to enjoy my beers in peace.

Matthew Cole

We did the two hour Pensacola Bay adventure and it was an absolute blast. We departed from Portofino and went to sand island near Pensacola Pass where the kids played on the giant sand hills.

Julie Morehouse

What a Blast! Our captain picked us up in Pensacola within walking distance of our hotel and took us to the Florabama for some frosty adult beverages. Sight seeing on the way was awesome, a beautiful body of water.

Allison Monroe

Thank you Captain Bob for making my family’s experience absolutely wonderful. Will definitely use you again and again.
Pamela Stone

The visit Destin tour is awesome, but be prepared for some riding time. We opted to visit Crab Island for some swimming and playing in the water instead of going to the boardwalk and it was a great decision.

Emily Halstead

My wife and I did the private Pensacola Bay boat ride while we were visiting Pensacola Beach on our anniversary vacation and it was great. We ask if we could go later and it was not a problem, we went at sunset and the captain took us to a private beach.

Mark Alexander

We took a wonderful 2 hour boat ride with Captain Bob! We saw a shark, several dolphins, some birds with their babies in their nest, and some cool landmarks! Our tour guide was friendly and helpful with tips on things to see and do.
