We rented jet skis... about $100/each/hour. Lots of space to run these skis, not too crowded, even when all the skis are out. The only down side is that it's a circular circuit. It would be nice to have a different shaped circuit or an option to take the skis up the lagoon, farther inland. Regardless, it was a lot... More

The Lagoon is good for learning how to SUP. There is a place to rent water crafts or water sport equipment at the lagoon. Nice for a day of fun. Good place to take tourist.

Very nice place to spend the afternoon with the family. Lots of options for fun here. We rented kayaks and paddle boards for an hour. Kids and adults both had lots of fun. Prices were reasonable and staff was very nice and personable. We will definitely be back.

My son and husband had a great time jet skiing for the first time. The staff was great. It is well worth the trip here. They are friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth the trip. Even if you are not participating, there are plenty of places to hang out. Sun or shade.

Make sure that you wear a hat and sun protection as there is little shade and a lot of sun! The views around the lagoon are interesting and lovely, and walking or running them is a great way to get a little exercise!

The lagoon is littered with debris, sharp concrete and weeds. The people working are great. Very laid back. Paddle boarding was great. Sink some money into the amenities and get your vibe back

This is such a fun place. We rent kayaks and head east down the lagoon. So much fun, if you have boats, but you can also jet ski!! The water is really warm in the summer and the boat rental shop has created a really nice ambiance with chairs and tables. They have a surf shop if you need anything... More
