We rented paddle boards for the first time, could of asked for better customer service. Was giving very detailed instructions on how to paddle board ( harder then it looks) from currents in the water to balancing yourself, could ask for a better time

Very easy group to work with! We had a large group and they got us all checked in and on the water really fast. Prices were good as well.

My son and I went on the jet ski tour and I gotta tell ya ... Our guide Jeff was awesome !!! His son is the assistant tour director, (he's 7 if I remember correctly) and it was just he and his son and myself and my son out on the water. It felt more like a couple of guys... More

We did the Jet Ski Dolphin Tour with Jeff as our guide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to ride jet skis with their kids. I decided to do the tour with my 8-yr old son and wife because I thought they might be hesitant to do the jet ski rentals. I wanted to introduce my son... More

Took my 6 yr. old jet skiing on a dolphin tour. Had dolphins swimming with us along side of the watercraft. We had a blast... Jeff was an awesome guide! Much better then we could have hoped for!

I took a girl scout trip here and they were a pleasure to work with. Joel helped our girls Kayak on the ocean and gave us a wonderful lesson on Kayak's and how to use them along with the safety of using them. We went back later in the week for surfing lessons with Jeff and Albert. They made sure... More

My husband and I took our 12 year old daughter to South Padre for a nice relaxing weekend and thought water bikes would be a good first day activity. We booked online several days ahead and our waterbikes were waiting for us when we arrived. We filled out some final agreements on their computer and off we went! Alex was... More
