About ScottyBoat Rentals

ScottyBoat Rentals is here to make your fishing and recreational activities more enjoyable! From pontoon boats that seat up to twelve people; great for entertaining the family and friends, sightseeing and cruising the bays; to center consoles ideal for fishing, diving, dolphin watching and cruising. Our fleet will give you and your family the options you’re looking for.

ScottyBoat Rentals' years of experience (open since 1992), focuses on safety, knowing what boat is best for your needs and you enjoying your water time.


Enjoy the freedom of exploring St. Andrews Bay and the Panama City, FL water ways at your own pace when you are captain.  St. Andrews Bay is one of the most gorgeous destinations in Florida’s panhandle.

Located in Northwest Florida, the bay is home to a variety of marine wildlife, from vast schools of speckled trout, mullet, and red fish to pods of wild dolphin, the occasional manatee and fabulous sunsets. Visitors and locals alike love to come here to enjoy fishing, boating, sightseeing, picnics, wildlife viewing and sandy white beaches.


Large or small pontoon boats are perfect for entertaining right on the water, they are the most stable vessel, easy to operate and you can pull up directly on the beach, making it easier to upload and load. All of our pontoon boats can fit up to twelve people. This size makes our pontoon boats ideally suited for large group and rougher waters, so you have the freedom to go wherever you please as safely as possible. Take a cruise to nearby Shell Island or simply enjoy a day on the water.

ScottyBoat Rentals are available for half day or whole day rentals at an affordable price. Call today for more information on our non-guided tours!

Had a great time. The boat was reliable, and exactly what we needed. The staff was courteous and helpful. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
