Bud was excellent from start to finish. Gave my son some quick instructions and let him run with it while we sat and relaxed. It was a cloudy day so we were the only ones on the "island" and Bud sat with us and answered any questions we had about the island and places to go. Everything he talked to... More

As I begin to write this review, I am at a loss for words, because I don't know how to start to describe what an incredible experience this actually was. Theos and Bud will forever be linked with my incredible trip to Hawaii. From the moment they arrived at the dock to pick us up and take us out to... More

Whist in Kona, my partner and I jet skied and whilst we waited we had a go at paddle boarding, also a lot of fun but harder than I was expecting! It was an incredibly cool experience and the jet skis were so easy to use and control. I'd recommend Jet Sking anyday!

We did two activities with Big Island Watersports. The first was jet skiing. The floating island is cool but going in you should know you can only go in a smallish contained area on the jet skis. Theos and Nick were very nice and we had fun. The second activity was snuba from shore. We were the only people in... More

Great location for jet skiing friendly staff, they offer free water and soda, and snacks. Parking in the area is a nightmare though. Get dropped off if you can, or walk if you're close enough

We walked up, asked a few questions, and minutes later rented stand up paddle boards and were out on the water. They take you out on a boat to a small island where you launch your paddle boards. You can also rent kayaks or jet skis. The workers were super friendly and answered all of our questions. They helped us... More

We had a family trip, and wanted to do snuba from the beach. Some had done it before, others were trying it for the first time. The instructors were great! They patiently explained everything, made sure we were all comfortable and confident, made us feel completely safe in the water, and ensured we all had a great time. We recommend... More

I was just on vacation in Hawaii and I wanted to try scuba diving. I'd been snorkeling before and loved it but I was a little unsure I would be able to clear my ears when actually diving and although I'm a strong swimmer, it made me slightly uneasy to try it. Then when speaking with Aly, she suggested I... More

Best time ever jet skiing!!! Of course the location is beautiful, and the jet skis brought the action and thrill, but Theos and Dillon added all the fun. Great time and thorough instruction and support to make the outing a total success. Then there was the bonus of the dolphins swimming nearby, unforgettable. Thank you guys! Aloha.

One of the best experiences I've ever had. A huge thank you to Bud who help me and my daughter have a great time with dolphins and jet ski. They ran behind the morning we went out, Bud was quick to solve the delay and went above and beyond with customer service. Biggest thing I noticed was the detailed instructions... More
