The jetski safari was a blast! The staff was super knowledgeable, laid back and fun. The tour itself was incredible as we drove out to beauitful Bull Island and had time to explore and collect shells. We drove through a lot of channels and spotted a few dolphins along the way! I would highly recommend this activty as a "must-do"... More

The two guys on the boat were lots of fun and Ginger at the desk was super friendly. They flew in the charleston harbor and had a great view of... More

Tidalwave Watersports were fantastic to work with! From the front desk to out on the water, Ginger, Donnie and Jordan went out of their way to make our time in the water SO MUCH FUN! Three of our family members went out on the Jet Safari with Donnie and two of us went out on the banana boat with Jordan.... More
