Rented a pontoon boat for 1/2 a day and it was an awesome afternoon! The website was easy to navigate and book a rental. Arrived 30 minutes early as requested and the whole team got us checked in promptly, went through the features of the pontoon boat thoroughly and we were on our way about 10 minutes early. Boat ran smoothly, the kids had fun swimming off the boat in a quiet part of the river and the map and navigation instructions were clear.

Would definitely recommend heading south out of the marina instead of north as the scenery was much more peaceful and there was almost no traffic on the river. Went north for a little while however all you see are houses for quite a while so it is a little boring. After our 4 hour trip on the river, we went to River City Cafe, which is in the next lot from the marina and it was excellent.

Staff was very friendly and accommodating and we would rent a pontoon boat from here again when we are in the area.

We rented two jet skis for an hour. The second rider on each jet ski was included in the price. As a first timer I was slightly nervous but the guides put me at ease. There were only three jet skis included on our trip as well as a guide leading us and a guide following behind. They led us down the waterway to an open area where we could then move around at our own pace and just have fun for a while. The jet skis looked new and were well maintained. I would absolutely recommend Island Adventure and am considering renting a pontoon next year for the whole family while we are on vacation in Surfside.

This was a great experience. By far the best price! It was $100 give or take for an hour of free-ride for two people. It was not in the ocean but in the inlet area. We followed our guide out to a large open area where we were allowed to free ride. My husband and I shared one jet ski and swapped back and forth so we could both drive. The brand new 2021 jet skis they have got up to 65 mph!! The guides made me feel safe and taken care of but they were also really great at giving us the leeway to do our own thing and make an awesome memory. I will definitely be back when I have the chance and highly recommend.

Had a Super day with the team at Island Adventures Water Sports, arrived as instructed about 30 minutes before we departed. Mr. Dave along with Grant, Coltan along with the ladies at the desk got us all signed in and fitted with life jackets. I do recommend following the instructions on the email they send with your reservation as it gives you a short 10 minute instructional video that will help everyone in your party become familiar and comfortable if they haven’t rode a jet ski before. We all got on our jet skis, became familiar with the controls and when everyone was comfortable operating their jet ski off we went. You will have a Blast of a time and the entire staff are their along the way for your safety and enjoyment. My sons 16/13 had an awesome time along with my wife and I. The scenic waterways give you sights you won’t see everyday and there is history to be learned as well. Highly recommend using this service and you will be well pleased. Thanks again to Dave, Grant and Coltan for a super morning!

Best part of our vacation! My boyfriend and I decided on the 2 hour guided tour based on other reviews and it was definitely worth it as we found out the 1 hour non guided tour still had a guide and they just brought you to a spot where you could only drive around in that one area, still probably fun but we got to see way more doing the 2 hr guided tour. We got 1 jetski for the both of us. Check in was easy and fast, our guide Dave was excellent, super nice and very chill, he even provided a recommendation for something else to do in the area afterwards which was also great so that was appreciated. You hop on the jet skis and ride for close to an hour through the winding intercoastal waterway and it's offshoots, lots of beautiful scenery and wildlife to see. We topped out at about 45-50mph since we did request to go fast, felt safe the entire time. You reach a halfway point at Sandy Island, hop out for a few minutes and then head back. Would highly recommend, awesome company, well maintained machines, and great guides. Very pleased with the whole experience!

Out of the handful of places offering wave runner rentals in the area, this one seemed to have the best price for the amount of time you got. Online reservation was simple and I arrived to find there was only a couple sharing a wave runner and myself that had made reservations. I had thought since I had chosen the standard rental and not a guided tour that we were just going out on our own and told to be back by a certain time. This was incorrect, all of the rentals are guided. After a brief safety talk, we were led down the waterway to an open area with an island in the middle and told we could do whatever we wanted between two markers. Since there were only two of us there was plenty of room to go fast on the water for a significant distance but after a few laps back and forth and around the island it did get a little repetitive. The guides lead us back after a while and we ended up being out for longer than the hour we paid for. If they had a different area for free riding every season I would go back. Still a great experience though.

My son gave us this opportunity as a Christmas gift. Danny and Hannah made the booking process easy, answered all our questions and provided good instructions for manuevering on the intracoasfal. We chose a 70hp pontoon boat, which easily accomodated 9 adults. We chose to go north for 1 hour to view many beautiful houses along the waterway. We returned downstream to the swingbridge, then traveled 1 hour south to see nature and wildlife. We docked at the Bucksport Marina. We used their public bathrooms, and ate the lunch we had packed. Then enjoyed a leisurely return up stream to the Island Adventure Watersports. It was a beautiful day of fun and enjoyment. Thanks Danny and Hannah.

What a beautiful note to end our vacation on! We were a group of four friends; two couples. $200/pp plus taxes. It was a 2 hour tour. They took a picture of our licenses. They held our car keys although each jet ski had its own little compartment. We found a life vest that fit. We then boarded our jet ski. Dave presented us with the safety measures. How to power the jet ski. They instructed us to stay in a line. Hand signals will be used when we need to slow down or speed up. They were very respectful of the water rules and the neighbors. We wore water shoes, although you don’t need to. It was cloudy and cool when we went so I wish I had a long sleeved shirt. Goggles or sunglasses are recommended whether your the passenger or driver. We were in total a small groups of 10 jet skis. Colton lead while keeping a fun moving pace on the water. The owners and staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The jet ski was new and clean. My husband drove. We went no more than 46mph. Our fantastic guides also told us a little area history of Sand Island. Only 50 people live on it. He even took photos of us. On our way back, our friends flew off their jet ski because of the passing boat’s wakes. Both guides were immediately at their side. Highly recommend this tour to all!

Was my first jet ski experience - a lot of fun. Staff were friendly and helpful. Jet ski is large and big enough for 2 adults. The hour-long tour was plenty of time to enjoy the water - guide was very helpful. An awesome time!

The boat we rented didn’t have all the safety doors on it. We were told by other boaters that there was water in the pontoons that caused the front of the boat to sink. Of the 9 people we had on board only 3 were at the front, if the boat wasn’t running at full speed the nose would start to go underwater.
