Everything from booking to the staff to the machines all exceeded our expectations. We had a party of 5 with 3 machines and the guide out showed us everything we needed to know to have a great time. Monday morning was much cheaper than weekend rates so we feel like we saved a ton of money waiting for the weekday to ride.

Action Water Sports jet ski was amazing! Our guide Drew made it easy for us to understand everything and made it fun for all of us. My family and I did the 2 hour one and there wasn't a dull moment. Probably the BEST thing I've ever spent my money on and Drew made the whole time completely worth it. Highly recommend riding jet skis through Action Water sports and if you get Drew, you're in for a real treat! Have fun y'all! 👍🏼

Had a private two-hour dolphin tour with family. Six of us on three jet skis. We didn't see dolphins but had a great time. We started puttering through the intercoastal waterway checking out the boats and nice homes. Then we opened it up and got out to the open ocean in search of dolphins. Pretty rough out there and one of the kids was a little spooked (I loved being out there in the rough water). So we headed back inland and cruised through the marshes which was a lot of fun.

Ron was a GREAT guide, communicated with us the whole time, and even took pictures with his own phone and air dropped them to us (very very nice touch as most places charge crazy money for photos).

We originally though two hours was a long time but it was perfect.

This was a fun trip for two adults and two kids (9 & 13). Initial instruction was helpful for learning how to ride. We started out with no experience on jet skis and we’re able to feel a sense of mastery before we hit the ocean. However the guide (Drew) took off and was often too far away to be able to help in case of emergency or riders falling off. Thankfully we didn’t have one. The ocean was pretty rough so I wouldn’t recommend it for very small kids. Equipment was great and well maintained. Good customer service getting set up. Easy booking process.

Randy was awesome! We had 3 returning jetskiiers and one first time rider and he really made sure the newcomer was super comfortable before we got to the ocean! He also was really mindful of letting the returnees go a little bit faster while ALWAYS emphasizing and prioritizing everyone's safety. Service was great, jetskis were comfortable, and the whole process was super easy and fun. We have never had a bad experience with this company and weve been 4 separate times. He was also able to get great pictures of us as a group and the pack of dolphins we all saw. We will definitely be back!

There were several things that made this experience less enjoyable than anticipated. First of all the boat was rented from the Little River location because of its close proximity to our house. The morning of our rental half of our party went to pick it up and were told it was at a location 30 minutes away! We were never informed of this beforehand. If we had known we would have rented elsewhere. In fairness they gave us an extra 30 minutes, however considering the distance from the docking location to where we wanted to spend our day the 30 minutes did not really make a difference.
Secondly, the other half of our party got lost on the way to the location due to poor directions, no signage, no indication of where to park, no landmarks...it was extremely frustrating. By the time our whole party was together and ready to leave we had lost at least 2 hours of our day.
It was not an inexpensive day, and then we were charged for gas on top of it. This was something we were not informed of either. Action Water Sports should have been upfront concerning the extra charges we would incur.
The boat itself was ok. It was much smaller than expected, we had 8 average sized people and it felt cramped, I don't know how they think 11 people would fit comfortably. The storage compartments under the seats had to be used because of the size of the boat. They were not as clean as they should be for spending that much money. I kept my bag on my lap all day because I didn't want it stowed away in the questionable storage areas.
We had a fun day, but felt robbed of time and started the day frustrated. We did not get to do all of the things we wanted because of time constraints due to the docking location. If we knew then what we know now, we never would have rented from this business.

This was the most fun we had on our vacation. My wife, two sons and myself wanted to ride jet skis for the first time. I contacted a few rental places and was told that they were closed for the season. I remembered that I had seen Action Water Sports on the web before we left the house and I'm so glad I did. They told us they will take any one out when they want to go (weather permitting). Sounds like good business to me. We did the 2hr dolphin tour. They wrapped us in life jackets, gave us a lesson on how to use the jet ski, told us safety protocol and away we went. The guides were very attentive to all of us. They watched us as we were driving and offered tips as to what we were doing and how to improve our driving. The guides took us out into the open ocean and found a large fishing boat that the dolphins were chasing. My sons were able to see dolphins. Me, not so much because I was lagging behind. Hadn't gotten my sea legs quite yet and I was in granny gear. The ride back through "Dead Man's Pass" was awesome. That is where I was able to open it up. My oldest son told me "I'm not sure anything on our vacation will be able to top this". That is when dad knew it was worth every penny we spent. Don't waste your money on Ripley's and Chinese souvenirs. Save your money and spend it here. This is something we will never forget.

There are several choices for jet ski rentals in and around Myrtle Beach and we would highly recommend Action Water Sportz. None of the options are cheap, but we found Action to be the best value and a great experience. We went with the 2 hour private guided trip and it was perfect for our family of 4. Our guide was Justin and he was absolutely awesome! We jet skied all around the Inter-coastal and he took us out to the open ocean, (which was a bit rough for us so we opted to stay inter coastal). Justin was patient, informative and really made an effort to make sure we had the best time. He even took photos and videos for us. Highly recommend!

I live locally, and although I would love to own a pontoon...the funds and slip are not quite there yet. A small group of us rented a pontoon boat for a friend's birthday. It was a last minute decision. Literally booked online late Saturday for a Sunday afternoon. The online booking process was easy, and you were able to pre fill waivers and send links to all of your guests. Actual check in was very smooth. All of the people who work here just look like they love their jobs, and are very helpful.
We did the 1-5pm rental on a gorgeous sunny day. We had an extra bonus of having Camille be our "Captain"/driver which allowed us to ..umm partake safely. She was amazing, knows the waters well, and just a joy to be around. Would definitely do this again, and probably want to do one of the Dolphin tours too. Worth the $$

Excellent little adventure. I have done a few jet ski rentals in the Myrtle Beach area and this has been the best. Great staff, excellent equipment. Best thing was we had three different types of rides in the one hour tour. Good straights with high speeds on the intracoastal waterway, high speeds curves in the marshes, and then the waves/swells near the ocean. What fun, thank you.
