While on vacation in Clearwater Beach with my family, the crew at Makin’ Waves stepped up and provided a simply awesome experience. Whether it was the beach chair service or the Waverunner rentals, Matt at Makin’ Waves cared for all the details so we could relax and have fun. I would highly recommend them.

Makin Waves was amazing! This was our first time visiting the area and visiting Makin Waves and Matt made us feel right at home! He was very helpful with everything and answered the questions we had. Thank you so much, Matt, for everything! We will be back!!

These guys are great. Matt was patient and doesn’t try to up sell you. It was our first time on jets skis and he answered all our questions. All the guys running the place are great as well and very accommodating with the beach chairs and umbrellas as well which I also highly recommend. We will definitely be back!!! Oh. And don’t wonder if it’s worth it because it is! Just do it !

MATT here gave clear cut instructions on how to ride jetski. we went there half hr before close.
We went here after visiting "clearwater beach scooters and bike rentals" (check out their website for awesome rides), go behind hotel to do "Makin Waves" jetski
.
Age 21 and under requires a test. They take creditcard and ID, very smooth transaction.

There is parking across hotel - I dont trust, looks like an easy spot for theft.
Better to valet park at hotel $10/all day and do all activities at one location (water & land activities), no need to stay at this Sheperds resort.

Thank you MATT for giving us chance to do jetski on tight schedule.
