Not only was this an incredible experience, all of the people who work there are excellent. Stayed in Norfolk for the weekend and this was on our "must do list." We had never jet skied, but the staff gives you brief, but concise and clear instructions and sends you off to get your moneys worth. The hour was perfect and... More

My wife and I went on a jet ski tour. I had ridden jet skis before, but it was a first time for my wife. They had her driving and comfortable almost immediately through clear, succinct, and helpful instructions. We saw dozens of dolphins and a few even flipped. The tour guide shared some interesting facts and even took us... More

Place is nice and well kept. Staff is great, accommodating and very helpful. They offer military discount too. The place is preferable to rent jet skis as it is less crowded and offer more privacy compared to Virginia Beach. It would have been a more perfect experience if there was an area to rinse off/shower. Overall a great experience.

When renting Your always confined to a small area of water. With Great White Water Sports we have an amazing amount of freedom. We took... More

We had an amazing time. They were so nice and attentive. We took the dolphin tour and had a great time. A couple people for the tour were running a little late and they let my friends and I paddle board for free while we waited. Would definitely go back and recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I were on vacation at Virginia Beach looking for something fun and different to do. I had never been on a JetSki before, but had always wanted to try it out. We checked out what was available and came across Great White. The reviews for them were through the roof, so we decided to give them a... More

We took the jet ski tour to the military base and it was very nerve-wracking but fun! We were first scheduled to do this tour on a Thursday but after arriving we found out that the conditions were not good so we made our tour for the following day. It would've been nice to know this ahead of time but... More

I scheduled 2-hydro bike rentals for my husband and I then a Jet Ski dolphin tour on the same day (well I thought). When we arrived to the location, we were unable to find parking; it appears they share the same lot as a nearby restaurant. Once my husband was able to find a spot across the street, alongside the...

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.
