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

We had never done anything like this is the past so there isn't anything to compare it too but I think it would be hard to beat! The instructor (Scott) was very personable and you can tell he truly loves what he's doing. We got to get up close to dolphins, was able to take a small break for some... More

We went on the 2 hour dolphin jet ski tour yesterday and while it is a little scary to go fast on a jet ski when you have never ridden one before and you have kids with you (my husband had our 6-year-old in front and I had our 10-year-old behind) the scariness made it more exciting. For the first... More

Owners were very helpful and professional. Rented 3 jet skis and enjoyed every minute. This is THE PLACE TO RENT JET SKIS in PCB and the only way to go to shell island! Thanks AAA Jet Ski! Will recommend to all our friends. Took the 2 hour partially guided tour and loved it.
