My wife and I decided to do the jet ski tour to see the dolphins and we must admit that the reviews had her a bit spooked. "Catch some air" and "trying to keep up" had her a bit nervous. Fear aside we embarked on one of the best adventures of the week! Our guide was matter of fact during... More

They equipment they have was really well maintained and Scott (the owner) and his wife Becky were really cool with a serious and thorough safety walk through. We had a wonderful time although we didn't take the guided tour, we saw dolphins and got to hang out on Shell Island for a while. We cant wait to do it again.

At first I wasn't sure about the partially guided tour as we have always just gone on our own with other rentals. However, I would have never been brave enough to go over the waves so fast if I hadn't been forced to keep up. It gave me the confidence that I could handle it. My husband wanted to go... More

Scott knows his area and its critters. The equipment is new annually and top quality. An Exhilarating ride...whew.....wow, fun! Dolphin mating season...super show! Scott even had suggestions for additional excursions in the area....most free places. Highly recommended! BTW, he's a very patient man. 😎🌴

Great rates for jet skis, friendly and helpful staff. Everyone had a great time, safely and enjoyed the experience. 8 folks in our group, several doubled up and the area was spacious for getting to use the equipment.

Great guide who took us all out and straight to see some dolphins. We then got to roam the shore and saw more dolphins and a sea turtle along the way. Some in our group saw some sharks but we missed them. The equiptment was well maintained and worked perfectly which is important in a setting like being out on... More

My husband and I did the guided jet ski tour. It is a two hour tour with about 45 minutes guided and the rest is free time. When we called the lady was very friendly and helpful. She also warned us that this isn't for the faint of heart. That the guide goes very fast and made sure this wouldn't... More

I don't care if your guides are professional, nor if you have the "best" experience here (even that is very subjective). Your staff, especially your counter staff, are all exception - EXCEPTIONALLY RUDE. For the kind of prices you guys are charging you would expect the staff to at least speak to a guest politely. Thumbs down.

this person was NEVER a customer st our business & from their Tripadvisor review history Nothing is ever satisfactory. Apparently this person has lots of free time to call & inundate business questioning why they have certain hours & policies & why said businesses won't accommodate their demands.
