Our group of 4 adults and 4 teens loved the Safari Jet Ski tour! I was the only mom in the bunch and was a bit nervous about the "high speed" description. It was definitely high speed and a ton of fun! Brandon, "The Pirate", was our guide and he was fantastic! The stop at the uninhabited island to search... More

Great time tubing and skiing with our son and his friends. Roan, our captain, and Lindsay, our first mate, did a great job and our whole group enjoyed being with them. After skiing and tubing, we went for a nice ride and saw two dolphins. Fantastic afternoon. Thanks Roan and Lindsay!!

My wife and I came out to have a great time riding wave runners and they delivered. Garland was an awesome guide. Had the opportunity to see and sit among a school of dolphins, unexpected treat. We rented for an hour and would love to do the 1.5 hr Safari next time. Very nice people work here, I highly recommend.... More

This group was amazing! It was our first time parasailing and we were very nervous. Everyone made the ride fun and exciting! Let me just say, parasailing is AMAZING! Even for those who are afraid of heights! It's very secure and very comfortable! These guys made sure of it! They were funny and helped take photos and videos of us... More

Rowen and Lindsey were the best guides. I rented the pontoon boat for two hours for my husband's birthday. They showed us around the marshes and ocean and we got to see some wild dolphins & sharks! We had so much fun tubing. I highly recommend!!
