We wanted an exciting experience at the end of a vacation week when we needed a break from the beach and this was it! We booked an hour long rental on the jet ski's and would have loved an additional hour (We did not participate in the guided tour). There is a nine mile area to be explored allowing you to fully see the island. I recommend booking the 3:30 time spot (last of the day) to allow in case you run over a minute or two. More importantly that time spot is when dolphins make their way into the waterway for play. We rode side by side with multiple dolphins!!!! Trevor was the employee who provided instructions and he was thorough and safe with the operating instructions. I would highly recommend this activity if you are a lover of jet skis.

I booked a 1 hour/1 Jet Ski experience for me & 1 other person & we absolutely loved it. We switched half way throughout the hour so we could both get the feel of driving & riding as a passenger & it was so much fun. You have a nice, big riding area as well. All the way from Surf City Bridge to North Topsail Bridge. I think she said it was roughly 9 miles of riding zone! Also, they actually give you a proper safety briefing in the beginning for those who have never been on a Jet Ski before. The water was warm, the weather was nice, the owner was very friendly & it was well worth the $118 I paid! Definitely will recommend to anyone living or visiting Jacksonville or surrounding areas! It took about 45-55 mins to drive there from Jacksonville with medium/heavy traffic & it was worth the drive! So much better than the competition that didn’t even bother answering the phone & then instead of returning my call, they just sent me a text message? Who does that? Don’t waste your time shopping around like I did. Just call them! They will actually answer the phone & when they do... book it! You won’t regret it! :)

Our family had a great time renting the jet skis. I had rented jet skis from the other rental place in the area about 10 years ago, and I would definitely recommend Surf City Jet Ski Rentals over the other place. They give you more area to ride in (7miles vs. 2 miles) which made it more enjoyable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Reserving your time slot was fairly easy as well.

We walked up to the trailer to rent jetskis but were supposed to reserve online (recommended for sure). The staff said no problem and got us a "ski" in 1.5 hours. Safety briefing was easy, instruction was simple and liked that they started us with a push off fr room the dock with engine idling. One surprise was that boats and other skis were coming toward us that we had to pass while learning to sterr at low speeds. Once on the sound it was very choppy but we got acclimated. Waves made it hard to keep a steady speed and harder with my wife in the back as I was trying to give her a smooth ride. We made it to the northern bridge and back in about 40 minutes and there were a few times I could go full speed on slightly smoother water. If I was alone I'd be jumping waves and going much faster, but it's also fun with a partner. We got to circle dolphins at one point! They put on a show jumping out of the water for us!

My son and I had lots of fun riding jet skis on the IC. The entire experience was great from the friendly staff and quality jet skis and great weather. This is our second time renting from Surf City Jet Skis and would recommend them to anyone.

It was worth every penny! It wasn't tour guide but they do offer those. My husband I and our 15 year old daughter went she was a passenger which was either 10 bucks or free i wanna say free u can fit up to 3 people on the jet ski! There are mamy options to pick from. We did an hour we had the most fun we we by ourselves they explained where we were allowed to ride at on a map and we freestyled able to go off amd explore all by ourselves! My hubby never rode one amd he was smiling ear to ear! Had the time of our lifes and 14 and older can drive just as long they with a adult! So Me and my daughter switched she was scared but did great! We also saw 🐬 dolphins so close u ride in the sound side of the ocean were their are no waves it was such a cool experience! Been coming to topsail island for over 15 years now amd never tried it! Well we made our minds up we will def be coming back 2021 vacation! For the hour u got to travel 9 to 10 miles one bridge to the other! The staff were nice awesome.

This was our group's first time on jet skis. The staff were very friendly and informative during the whole training and checkin process as well as out on the water. Being that it was our first time, it was nice to have one of the staff out there on the water with us just in case. We would highly recommend Surf City Jet Skiing

Great experience! This outfit is top notch. They have perfected their business in every way. Online scheduling was a cinch, the liability forms are automatically emailed ahead of time; clear instructions are given and they are clearly on top of safety and make it a priority. I applaud this outfit on finding a good crew who are very responsible, and have great customer service skills! Great experience; my family loved it!

We've been coming to Topsail / Surf City for years and one of the highlights for our kids is the jet ski time. These guys are always professional and quick on the turnaround, and the jet skis are always in great condition. The area for skiing is large and interesting, and it's a great way to break up a week at the beach.

Our family of four adults rented jet skis from Surf City Jet Ski Rentals after reading the stellar reviews left by previous customers. There is a reason for these outstanding reviews! Everything about this was top notch. Instructions were clearly and professionally given. The equipment was in excellent condition. The 9 mile riding area from Surf City bridge to North Topsail Bridge gave us plenty of room to thoroughly enjoy our pwc. This was the highlight of our vacation! I highly recommend Surf City Jet Ski Rentals!
