We rented a boat. The Regal Arc 24ft. It was a fun boat to drive (for me worth the extra money). It was a new boat from this year (2014). The whole team was friendly and the service was good. Good safety guidelines and they set you on track. We'll go there next year as well.

Action Watersports is vying for your reservation along with the many other marina boating companies. We went with them because they were close to our hotel, and paid the same price as everyone, but the speed boat was beat up! It was dirty with food and spills on it when they rented it to us, and the vinyl seats were... More

The was a wonderful trip. The team on this catamaran was great. They offer drinks and snacks - the trip is about two hours. I recommend going on the trip that leaves around 5 so you can see the sunset. I know this can be the coolest time of day so take a sweater. The crew is all about safety... More

On the next day we decided also to rent two Jet skis before. As we were early, we got a special rate without having to ask for it. Both activities were great fun, the... More

I want to start this review off by saying 2 things; first we ended up renting a jet ski from Action Watersports the day after 4th of July and second the store manager was actually a pretty nice fair guy. That said, the older lady named Beverly helping him at the front desk was absolutely nasty, condescending and outright rude.... More

We booked a boat/house tour of the Thunderbird Lodge. They decided to cancel the tour the day before due to a lack of people signed up for the tour. They called me once and left a message saying "we need to talk to you about your tour". This message was sent two minutes before their closing time. I called them... More

We rented a 18ft speed boat it was new. The staff was so nice went over all the safety instructions we were very impressed with the way they handled renting speed boats. We own a boat and knew of the dangers and were glad to see that they went over them anyway. They have discount coupons at the hotels so... More

We reserved our para sailing trip from a coupon we found at a hotel. $10.00 off before 11:00. They told us to be there at 10:30 to do the paperwork. They took our are money at 10:42 but didn't want to honor the coupon. Because the boat must sail by 11:00. However the older lady stated, she felt sorry for... More
