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

Brought our 12 year old son on the dolphin excursion. What a blast!! Trip is not for people who want to leisurely look at landmarks. Cover about 20 miles round trip and you go fast!! Was very neat to ride along side the dolphins. Thomas our guide was great!! Very friendly family who makes you feel part of their family,... More

Miss Stacy and her staff were awesome! We even played volleyball with one of the kids which was a blast. We rented two jet skis for an hour each and the paddle board. The jet ski instruction and experience was great - the kids had a blast. Doing this on the bay was the way to go with calmer water... More

We had scheduled this adventure four other times and each time was cancelled due to poor weather. This never bothered me because it speaks volumes as to their safety standards. When we finally did get on the water it was a great experience. The staff was knowledgeable - they interacted with not only me but my son, and they were... More

I'm stationed in ct and my husband is leaving soon for school. I didn't make it on time and had to start heading back. The crew understood. They accommodated me and gave me and my husband a memory that should make the next 6 months apart more bearable. Thank you great white! Tons of dolphins, the crew is welcoming, and... More

Their website and phone message say they open at 10. The workers inside said they open at 10:30. The dolphin tour was scheduled for 10:30. There were no jet skis on the beach, we had to wait for them to bring them out, one at a time, and they took 20 minutes to get each one out. The tour got... More

Upon our arrival we were greeted with warm smiles and the staff made us feel so welcomed. We arrived around 12 pm and there was no wait for us to complete the waivers and be... More

Please do not listen to the one person on here with the terrible rating, this place is amazing and the people are friendly. My boyfriend took me here as a birthday present. When we got there the staff greeted us and was very friendly and upbeat. It was us another couple and a family who we're waiting to do the... More
