Jet ski

The Jet Skis tour was amazing I thought it was going to be difficult but it wasn’t, I hope to go back and take another trip with the Jet Ski and also want to thank the young brother who helped and guide us during the activity. Once again it was amazing and thank you.

Too much money for a timed event

about 11 days ago
I wasn't very happy it was alot of money for the short time you are allowed on the water. Just an FYI...that 2 hrs includes the half hour you have to be there early. So you are actually on the water for only 1 1/2 hrs. To me that is false advertizing...then I did not have experience on a jet ski and learning on the ocean is rough...they talked up our guide Dillon but he was little help and didn't do much guiding nor much about our trip. He was always 100 yds plus ahead of us and we were the only ones with him...we stopped at shell island excited to find shells yet here's the capper there are no shells yes read that again! you think our guide told us this? He did not and let us waste valuable time we could have seen the dolphins...we only were given 25 min on the island and 20 of that was walking across the island to get to the other side . Then when we get back from no shelling and he tells us that we don't have anytime to see the I am instantly pissed off because it called a dolphin tour and he reluctantly takes us over out into the golf to see them but only lets us look at them no more than 2 minutes...and said we have to go. We would not do this again we would rent jet ski's for a nice chunk of time and do as we want...felt like a total waste of money!
