For my birthday I wanted to do something I had not done.
So I called Emily answered I told her I didn't want the responsibility of driving a jet ski I just wanted the adventure.
We set up to meet through the week they met me everybody through the business was so wonderful mark one of the owners pick me up in the golf cart took me down to the lake Emily and Mark both took pictures with me.
Emily took me out on the jet ski she went as fast or slow as I wanted to go everybody that takes someone out on any type of watercraft is lifeguard certified it was the best hour I had for my birthday I had a blast she also took me around to show me the full Lake stopping would talk about different areas.
Afterwards I joined them for supper and a drink I highly recommend this company it's a small local business but they generally want to make sure you have fun and you're treated like family.

We rented the "party barge with towing tube" for a group of 5. It was a bit of a challenge texting back and forth to get the boat (with tube) that we wanted--you can't just reserve it on their website...you need to confirm with them first. The good: staff was efficient and friendly at pickup and drop off. We received the tube as promised and also the boats come with a Lily Pad. Both were fun. The radio has Bluetooth that worked. Minor negatives: the boat only has 60hp engine--fine for cruising, but not as powerful as we would have wanted for tubing. Also, the boat's speaker was not great quality--we ended up bringing a Bluetooth speaker and were glad we did (but we are sound snobs).
Overall a very good experience and so glad to have a place close to home that rents boats!

We rented a pontoon boat from Rez Adventures and from the time of reservation until we dropped the boat off- they were very courteous and accommodating. My friends and I had a blast cruising the reservoir!

I wish I could give 0 stars! BEYOND frustrated with Rez Adventures! We called for months only to never get a call back. I emailed as well and they responded to one email saying yes they had a rental for us on the date we wanted but that I had to call. I called several times with no answer. I emailed again letting them know we had trouble getting answers and no response. I FINALLY got an answer one random day and all they had left was a rental from 3-7pm. Fine we took it because this was going to be the highlight of our trip. Booked it and paid our reservation fee. Only to be called the morning of our reservation to say that they no longer had a boat for us. She had 0 details as to why we were being canceled and I felt like she didn't even try to help us. Just kept saying sorry we have no boat for you. My children were in tears! Will never do buisness here again nor recommend ever!

A bunch of friends and I rented the ski boat for the day and it was a fun time. We were able to go tubing and wakeboarding which was a blast. The whole process was done smoothly and professionally. The rates are really good for the memorable experience you get out of it. My friends and I will definitely rent from Rez Adventures again the next time we want to go out on the lake. Thanks Mark and David again for a great time!

Coralville Lake was beckoning, so we found Rez Adventures who rents pontoon boats. This was the largest and by far the nicest pontoon boat I have been on! Mark was super nice and easygoing. He even had a cooler on the boat for us! We had a lovely three hours out on the lake. The rates were very reasonable as well.
We definitely will be using this service when we come back for visits!
