We had made reservations with Coastal, but the day we were to ride, the water was pretty rough and they recommend we try to go another day. We made a reservation for the next morning when the water is generally calmer, but the next morning we got a call that the harbor was full of the sea grass that sometimes invades the harbor so riding would not be possible. I am giving this a five star rating as it is clear they care about their customers and not just making a buck. We will definitely ride with them on our next trip.

A great and affordable family experience! Captain Isaac is amazing! Very friendly, professional, and easy to deal with. Sometimes people who deal with a lot of tourists can become short or are just not the best to deal with... Captain Isaac is the complete opposite! Very friendly but also give clear instructions, so don't worry if you've never been on a jet ski! The kids (and I) had a great time! I think an hour is the right amount of time. It is still fun, but we were ready for a break after an hour. We rode two to a jet ski and switched off driving. I recommend the second person look to the side and keep their head below the drivers to avoid "bonking" heads. There is a waterproof compartment to store items, but do you really want to risk losing your phone? Leave it on shore and just enjoy the experience! Recommend swim googles or you'll get a lot of water in your eyes! I don't recommend sun glasses unless they are cheap and you don't mind losing them. Maybe ok if you are driving yourself, but if you are two or more to jet ski, the game quickly becomes trying to throw the other person off! Maybe that is just my kids, but I doubt it...

We had a large group of 10 family members, and needed to rent 6 waverunners for a specific time given that we only had a certain number of hours to be on this part of the island - on Christmas Day no less! I made advance reservations via email. Mae responded promptly and with all details requested. When we arrived, everything was arranged as requested and we were able to fully enjoy the experience. Equipment was in great shape, we were billed exactly what was quoted. We thoroughly enjoyed being able to explore the waters around the island on our own - all ages had a blast!

We're experienced jet ski riders and loved the fact that jet skiing is "freestyle" in St Thomas, meaning you don't have to ride within a limited area. We totally enjoyed our hour on the water, making it all the way to Magen's Bay and back. You really get a different perspective of the island from the water. Captain Isaac is awesome! Obviously knows a lot about jet skis and is very friendly. He keeps the jet skis very well maintained and in top condition, so you don't have to worry about mechanical issues. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!

We had an incredible time. Isaac gave us directions to the best spots and was quick to get us in the water after showing me how to drive the jetski. He gave us water bottles so we didn't get dehydrated too. We rode around the eastern edge of the island to the north side, the skis are fast and well maintained.

My family and I enjoyed the freestyle ability. They give good instruction on how to use the Wave runner, put you in the harbor, then let you go free. Third best experience on the water....HUGE CON... it is not clear on the reservation that EACH person needs to have THEIR OWN credit card in order to drive a wave runner. My group was under the impression that one credit card would cover everyone in our group. This is not the case. Thankfully, we all traveled with emergency cards.

Captain Isaac was awesome and we had the best time! It was me and my 8 year old son and we had never ridden wave runners before. I was a little nervous but Captain made us feel very comfortable and went out on his boat to watch so we didn't feel alone out there on the water. Knowing he was watching made us feel very safe and we were able to have a better time because of it. The water and islands were gorgeous and the wave runner was in great condition and super fun to drive. It was Mother's Day and our last adventure on the island before heading to the airport that afternoon. Such a fantastic way to end our trip. We had a good lunch at the resort beach bar afterwards, and even though we weren't staying at the resort, we got to enjoy their beach. It was THE MOST beautiful beach on the entire island (Saphire Beach). Make sure to grab lunch and enjoy the beach after your wave runner adventure! I live in Clearwater FL and have always wanted to ride one here at home but never got around to it in 15 years of living here lol smh. Guess what I'm doing next weekend-riding wave runners at my own beach! I'm addicted and can't wait to get back out on the water again!

We've rented jet skis at several vacation destinations and I have to say this was far and away the best!! Isaac was super friendly, very accommodating and knowledgeable. Most jet ski rental places we've visited in other locales require you to stay in a specific area, or small bay. These guys give you free reign to go just about anywhere you'd like. We did a 2-hour rental and took the skis all the way over to Magen's Bay. It was pretty choppy and a bit challenging on the way back, but it made for some great memories and story-telling!! Highly recommend Isaac and the folks at Coastal Watersports. If we ever make it back to St. Thomas, we will definitely go rent jet skis from these guys again.

Very professional, very high quality equipment and very friendly staff. Captain Isaac took great care of us, including two noobies, with great respect and attention to detail. We all had great fun and felt very safe throughout the process. I do know that there are cheaper places out there, but the price difference is nothing compared to the quality and service offered by Coastal Watersports. We will be back here on all of our visits to St. Thomas.
