Owner description: We are you're all in one beach day company with the best jet ski rentals on island. Located on rainbow beach, on the west end of St. Croix, you will find the calm crystal blue waters of the Caribbean you have dreamed of and certainly the calmest and clearest waters on St. Croix. If you spend a day here West End Water Sports is proud to offer both "free-play" jet ski rides and guided tours. We have chairs and umbrella's for you to rent, snorkel gear, kayaks, floats, rafts and what beach would be complete with out a volleyball net. For lunch and your favorite island beverages we are located right next to "Rythms at Rainbow" beach bar and grill. Grab a "Lime n the Coconut" and enjoy! We hope to see you soon.

“Super Great Service, Super Fun Jetskis!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

What's not to like about jetskiing in the Caribbean? You can't go wrong unless you had really crummy service. That was NOT the case with West End Watersports. Brian, the owner, took exceptional care of me and my family. There were four of us, including my 5 and 10 year old daughters. He showed us how to drive the skis, where we could and could not go and did this with a smile and a quick pace (I'm sure he knew we wanted on the water!). We had the hour ride (we purchased with a package with the ATV company) and the girls loved every minute of it. We weren't brave enough to jump the waves or anything but I did get up to 50 mph on the water! His jetskis really move!!

He is located right next to Rhythms at Rainbow Beach and offers chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear, floaties, etc. to rent. You really don't have to leave the entire day with the restaurant/bar right there. We were staying on island just 2 miles down the road and still didn't leave for the day. It was really relaxing (except for the restaurant but that doesn't have anything to do with Bryan). The prices are very reasonable ($60 for 1/2 hour, $100 for 1 hour) and his crew are super fast to set up your chairs and umbrellas.

This is a great excursion for all ages and we would definitely go back. The quality of his equipment, his professionalism and his customer service all point to a man that is dedicated to growing a successful business!

Words of advice: Bring sunscreen and wear sunglasses (maybe even a rash guard) out on the water (the waves splash a lot). You can pack a lunch but Rhythms is also right there. A book, frisbee, whatever, is fun on this beach. Stay and relax, they'll take care of you.

“Worth Every Penny!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I decided to do the full tour for a little more than what it costs for the hour and we were SO glad we did! It was awesome to ride to different parts of the island and see about 8 different shades of the gorgeous Caribbean along the way! We felt completely safe and Brian had us jumping waves with him in no time (which you totally don't have to do- but you should because its such a rush!) We have other friends and family coming to St Croix over the next few months (visiting our sister) and we will recommend this to all of them!!! Thanks Brian, Scott and Darren for an amazing experience!

“Columbus, Ohio Birthday Crew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Scott thanks for a great day! We had a blast on the jet ski's and the rental of chairs, umbrellas, and even RAFTS all at one convenient stop was a bonus! You are a charismatic young business man and we enjoyed doing business with you! My husband Joe was able to do the one thing he REALLY wanted on your beautiful island. He stormed the sea with his jet ski! Your staff was very friendly, always smiling and not even rude when we asked to negotiate.... LOL. An absolute fantastic experience! Thanks for contributing to our birthday year memories!

“This Is It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Upon arrival to the attraction, it was obvious the equipment was all ready to go and the excitement escalated. The establishment was easy to find and in an excellent location. We met our guide Brian who was not only professional but wayyy awesome. Then the it began! The most cool, fun, safe, memorable time a group of friends and/or family can have. Sadly, all good things come to end.

“trip highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We were in St Croix for the Christmas holiday and we visited Rainbow Beach for the day. This was a highlight of our trip! Beautiful beach and awesome activities provided by West End Water Sports. Our 21 and 17 yr old loved the jet ski tour and snorkeling. The food was great at the pub on the beach,clean bathrooms and friendly staff. We could not have ask for more! We had a great time.
West End Water Sports at Rainbow Beach is a must do when on the Island of St.Croix!
