Due to an illness we had to cancel our whole trip from Germany to Virginia, so we couldn't actually ride Jet Skis with Great White Watersports. However, the staff was most helpful when we had to cancel and their customer service in general is great. We will definitively book with them and come back some other time.

I have tried flight-board there for the very first time and it was absolutely awesome. I managed to learn the basics how to control a flight-board only because the guy who was teaching me was very persuasive to provide me with the best experience. Very nice and friendly staff.

My boyfriend and I visited the Norfolk area in early June. We wanted to try something new and adventurous so we both agreed on jet skiing. We did the hour jet skiing session at Great White Water Sports. The staff was was very nice. The beach wasn't crowded and we had a broad area to ride. We both switched between... More

These guys are very friendly and helpful. Non of us did jet ski before, they taught us very well and we had a good time. Once we were done, they had a volleyball net and they let us use it as well.

My family and I had a wonderful time, kids already asking when can they go back to see the dolphins. Staff really made us feel safe. Great place to go if you are in the Va Beach area.

My husband and I went on their jet ski dolphin tour in July. This was the first time either of us had been on a jet ski. We were very excited and a little nervous. Our guide was very friendly and helped the whole group along. We had an amazing time flying through the water and we sat for about... More

Great company, professional, polite, safe staff. We didn't want to leave, kids are already talking about next year. We wish it was a place like this in our state, but it's ok, gives us an excuse to get away.

The jet skis here are awesome and fast! The staff is very nice and makes you feel very welcomed. You will definitely enjoy your time here. They also have canoeing and paddle boarding which was also fun if you want a more relaxing activity.

We scheduled 3 jet skis. When we arrived the staff told us that the dolphin tour was running late and we'd have to wait about 45 minutes. We had another event scheduled after this, but the dolphin excursion returned about 45 min to an hour later. My daughter and I had a blast. The jet skis are very fast, to... More
