The Activity We Experienced
What we chose to do
We enjoyed the speed of the tour and sightseeing on the water
How did you discover this activity?
I found TripShock on the Key West Chamber of Commerce site. We had been planning a jet ski tour and had been searching for one that allows 17yr olds to drive solo and the best rate possible. TripShock offered both!
When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?
We booked about a month prior to arrival.
Why did you choose this activity?
My husband and I had given our 3 children a choice of excursions and 2 of the 3 wanted to do a jet ski tour.
How did you get to the activity location?
The company provided a free shuttle pick-up and drop-off to and from our hotel.
What was your experience with the activity’s staff?
The two guides were friendly, helpful, and very attentive. My 17yr old struggled to keep up with the rest of the group at the beginning and one guide hung back with her and gave her tips until she got the hang of things on her own.
Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?
This was our first time ever renting and driving jet skis. We learned many known, as well as random, facts about Key West. We got to see a sea turtle, tiny sharks, and a couple of dolphins. All of that was a totally unexpected, but pleasant surprise and bonus of the trip. We enjoyed the speed of the tour and sightseeing on the water. My daughter learned to drive a jet ski at 17 and my 14yr old son and I took a dip into the ocean when we took a turn too slow and the jet ski turned over. Totally unplanned, but so glad it happened. It quickly became a highlight for us! The staff and guides were amazing. They taught us, with ease, how to operate the jet skis. They kept us safe and answered any questions we had. The company itself was one of only two we could find that allowed 17yr olds to drive solo. It was also one of the cheaper jet ski tours on Key West. I’m so glad my children chose this excursion and took me along for the ride!! Yippie ski-ppie!!
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
I would recommend this tour for anyone looking at a jet ski tour. This company offered one of the cheapest rates, as well as a free shuttle for transportation. If you have a 17yr old, this is only one of two companies on the island that allow the 17yr old to operate the ski alone. The second company is more expensive. The monetary savings in no way takes away from the trip experience. You get what you pay for and a whole lot more!!!
