We really enjoyed the jet ski/dolphin tour today. The staff and guide made today a superb experience. I had never rented a jet ski before, but it was a great experience even for a first-timer. We saw loads of dolphins around the First Landing State Park. I enjoyed the scenery. Even though it wasn't calm water, it still made for... More

If you are contemplating the dolphin jet ski tour, don't. I have never left a review online but I had to for these guys. The enthusiasm they have for the love of their job makes the experience that much better. After getting a brief talk about how to work the jet skis, we set out and traveled about under the... More

You know how much fun it is to ride jet skis. And you know how cool it is to see wild dolphins in the ocean. Now combine these together and you get the great white water sports dolphin tour. My wife and I took the tour the first week of Sept. and had a wonderful time. The equipment was all... More

I am in agreeance with the majority who have reviewed Gret White Water Sports. They are fabulous! Very helpful, outgoing, fantastic people who run this place. We called and they said we could just come out. My nephew had never been on a jet ski before and the instructor spent time in explaining everything perfectly. The prices are very reasonable... More

My wife and I bought our tour ticket for half price through Groupon just as some other reviewers did. For the reviewer who gave a bad review, I am also a "local" and yes it was a little more difficult to book with Great White but I think that was because of the volume of tours bought. I called and...

I was presently surprised with my jet ski dolphin tour. We saw hundreds of dolphims and our tour guide was great. Good value, scenery, and equipment. A must do attraction in my opinion when you are at VA Beach. Thanks again!!!

Having booked a dolphin tour through groupon I honestly thought I was going to be lucky to see one dolphin, yet to my complete surprise I saw hundreds! The staff were fantastic and I was looked after by a guy called Tude who was courteous and polite and certainly made my experience all the more enjoyable. The dolphins however were... More

I bought a groupon for the 45 minute dolphin tour & I think it would have been worth paying full price! I am very glad we were navigating the calmer waters of the bay, especially with my sixteen year old stepdaughter driving. The dolphins were so close! It really added to the excitement of the tour. The equipment seemed safe,... More

After reading the reviews of rudee inlet jet ski rental --we were within walking distance--we decided to take the drive to great white water sports instead--the guy that worked there was so friendly. He made the whole experience so much better and it was less expensive also. We would definitely go back especially for the great people that work there.
