We went parasailing. The whole experience could not have been better. The crew was great. The boat was clean. Our captain - Michael - had complete control of the boat and consequently the parasailors so we felt totally confident asking to be "dipped" (option to touch down in water before you land back on boat.) Notes: You sail two at... More

We have been to tidalwave multiple times and have had great experiences each time. This time, Devon provided our family with a exciting and safe adventure on the jet ski safari.

Had a three hour charter. Rowan was our captain and did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable and fun. We saw Dolphins, cruised various islands and swam off the boat. Lots of fun. Highly recommend Tidalwave and Rowan!

Every year I take my daughter on the Jet Ski Safari. We drive all the way up from Kiawah just to launch out of the 41st street location. It is beyond worth fighting the traffic. Yesterday we made the trip up and rode out to bull island with our guide, Ari. He was totally rad. He was great with the... More

We took a safari jet ski tour on Monday AM and it was a total blast! Excellent guide - we got about 15 minutes of free time to just mess around on the jet skis, then took off on a high speed tour through the salt marshes to an island. It was so much fun!!! Absolutely recommend this!

We took Dad out on the jet ski safari for Father's Day ... and everyone had a blast. The guides gave great instructions and it's easy to do - even for first timers. 4 of us went out on 2 jet skis ... you can double up. Great great fun, can't wait to do again. Very friendly & professional staff.

I'm an event planner and send clients to tidalwave often. But they went above and beyond to coordinate boat transportation for my wedding on capers island during very busy days for them. To cap off perfectly executed logistics, we My bride and I had a private jetski safari touring all around the marsh creeks. Excellent service, guides and attitudes

We went jet skiing here and had a great time! Ari was our instructor on how to operate the jet skis, and he did a great job! We had a blast riding around on the water in Dewee's Inlet. Love this place!
