Jet skiing with Alonzo was the bomb! This guy genuinely cares for giving the riders the best time! And we sure had a blast! For sure will do it again.

Originally signed up for the parasailing, but it was cancelled the day of. Instead, they asked if I'd' like to do any of the other activities and I asked about the jet skiing. Long story short, thanks to a wonderful activity leader/instructor named Dustin, I...More

Yes, they do. I park my Ram 3500 MEGA Cab Diesel 4-wheel drive there and have no problem with space!

It does get kind of choppy. If you are prone to motion sickness; you might want to avoid this.
