SO MUCH FUN

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

It was absolutely terrifying - huge waves! The guide said he'd never seen anything like it. He did warn us but it was more than we expected. I kept my eyes closed and held on for dear life as I had suntan oil on my legs and would have slid off of the Waverunner otherwise. It took about 20 minutes... More

WE inform all guests of the water conditions prior to signing them up, no one is forced to participate , ever. WE also do not run in extreme conditions or when conditions are unsafe for our customers. The wave heights this tour were not over six feet just very choppy and windy( you do get battered around in rough seas... More

Own a condo here in PCB and come multiple times a year. This is the best jet ski company to rent from! You won't be disappointed. You get two hours and the option to jump in with the Dolphins!

Had a 7 and 9 yr old with us. The water was a little choppy due to the weather but they hung in there and did just fine. Lots of dolphins in the area and got really close to them. Had free time to ourselves after our guided dolphin tour. I would recommend this place based on a good price... More

First time using this establishment. Read the reviews and the offers from multiple sites. This by far was worth the visit! Scott is someone who knows the area and is willing to share it with you. Our family had a great time and will be back every time we visit! Not to mention we will tell everyone where they should... More
