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

For the past 3 years that I have been coming to Panama City Beach, I have always booked with AAA Jet Ski , and have had ZERO issues with them. We did the 2 hour unguided tour, and Scott gave us a map and we were on our way! This company also does not discriminate at all. I am also... More

We appreciate all of our customers and value their loyalty. Our main concern is SAFETY for everyone on the water so having the capacity to understand all the rules, regulations, & safety talk given before every ride is a must that we take very seriously. Our skis are set on kilometers. More

My husband and I took the 2 hour partially guided tour and were not disappointed. Scott took us right to the dolphins and my husband was able to dive in right beside them! The tour is fast and adventurous, which is exactly what we were looking for. After the guided portion of the dolphin tour we were able to ride... More

We were recommended to visit here from other tourists. The tour was great; however, if you are a first timer be warned. I was super nervous because of the speed and big waves but I had no choice but to hang on for the duration of the tour. The owner knew where to find animals and did stop to point... More

This guest was a passenger on a Jet Ski driven by someone else in their party, we are in the Gulf, yes there are waves we can not control mother nature, we also have no control on the speed of the person that was driving the Jet Ski this person was a passenger on. Our tours only run @ 35... More

We took a tour with this company. We were upfront with the guide and told him that some of people in our party had never driven a jet ski. He asked, we informed! Rather then inform us that this tour is not for beginners, he took our money and refused to let us return to shore when we realized this... More

When booking all reservations we inform all customers that you must have Jet Ski experience no beginners we can only go with what we are told , we take people at their word. We can not hold up other members of the tour group for a novice driver that is why they were told to speed up ( 35 MPH... More

I followed the glowing reviews of AAA and Scott, and was NOT disappointed. Scott is the most experienced jet ski instructor and tour guide in PCB, and he takes you right to the dolphins. We saw many dolphins in the bay, as he knows exactly where they are, and OTHER tours look for where the AAA tours are stopped to... More

Fantastic, flexible, reasonably priced. We literally got to swim with the dolphins (as advertised) and had a solid hour and a half to ourselves. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, accommodating, and had a true passion for ocean life...highly recommend them to families and singles alike!!!

Scotty is awesome and made the whole experience better than it would have been if it was just rental without the tour. This way you get the best of both worlds. Scotty made sure all the kids on the tour were able to get up close to the dolphins. My son and I enjoyed every minute of this experience and... More
