There were five of us on 3 Jet Ski's. I like the fact that you get 45 minutes of guided tour and the rest of the two hours is yours to do what you want. The Jet Ski's were fast but steady. The whole family had a great time.

When I read the reviews, I knew my husband, son (16) and daughter (24) would love this adventure and that I would not. They loved the high powered jet skis, the thrill of the fast pace while heading out to the dolphins and the freedom to do their own thing on the way back. The owner / guide was great!... More

This place was great and I recommend renting from them, they take care of their jetskies and are very informative about all safety and instructions. We did the guided tour, me and my wife and then my best friend and his wife and we ended up being the only ones. Once we got on the jetskies the guide(owner I believe)... More

We booked the Shell Island Dolphin tour with AAA Jet Ski Rentals on my brother's recommendation. We loved the idea that we could ride jet skis for 2 hours and get up close to the Dolphins. Our guide led us through the channel out to the ocean where we found several Dolphins. We were able to jump in the water... More

We had an incredible time. The guide was nice and knew right where to find the dolphins. We had plenty of time for free riding. Definitely would go again.

The "guide" was rude and obnoxious and thought of every reason under the sun that my husband and I shouldn't go on the semi guided tour, even though the previous evening, we had spoken to a very nice young man who assured us that if we could ride a four wheeler, we could ride a jet ski. The rude guy... More

The irony of this is the VERY NICE young man & the rude guy are one in the same, maybe this reviewer was having a terrible day . When you call to book a tour we provide all the information we can at the time the reservation is made. SAFETY is our number one MAIN concern. The gulf waters change... More

This tour was the best. We have rented with other companies in the past and AAA is top notch. It is only for experienced riders but they confirm this with you beforehand. It's your own fault if you lie about it! We loved seeing the Dolphins and the free ride time! We will be back!

Experienced riders only! Make sure you follow the advice from fellow reviewers. This is to ensure everyone has a great time on the tour and your not wasting people's time. The tour guide seems quite intimidating at first but that's because he really cares about your safety. You need to be able to keep up and follow his directions. Because... More

The guide was very nice! He took us where the dolphins were hanging out. He also pointed out a huge stingray and a mantee! Very up close and personal with all these beautiful creatures!!! Then we had an hour to ride on our own! This was definitely the highlight of our trip to PCB!!!!

The day we went out was a red flag day. Swells were up to eight feet and we were warned repeatedly that it would be a rough ride and they didn't lie! However, the guide circled back repeatedly to make sure we were all together and doing okay. We saw a lot of dolphins as promised and were provided with... More
