“Good Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Booked at the last minute and they were able to take us on a boat charter to the southern islands (Koh Mudsum, Koh Tan, 5 islands). Had a fantastic time zooming about the waves on the SeaBob - superb.

“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

After booking the JetLev through the hotel at which I am staying we turned up the next day ready to go as planned. It was cancelled due to bad weather and the company had apparently tried informing us earlier that day by contacting the hotel. This was fine as we had been out all morning and rescheduled for the next day at 4pm. We had arranged to be picked up the following day at 3:30 from the hotel by Water Edge Sports. Sitting on the steps of our hotel at 3:45 we became suspicious that the taxi may not be coming so called the company for more information. The JetLev had once again been cancelled due to technical difficulties which in itself is unfortunate and frustrating as we had been waiting all day for the experience and delayed booking other tours. Whats worse tho is we had spent almost the entire day with the exception of lunch in our hotel room as my girlfriend was unwell and had not been contacted.

Very disappointed with the customer service provided and wasted 2 days of our holiday. There was another group of young guys at the office on the first day who wanted to jet ski however there was only 1 operational so instead went on the SeaBob which they said was a complete waste of money.

“Jetlev!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

We saw a brochure at the airport and called the company. We were able to get a booking the next day! (which was lucky as it was our last day in Samui).

We were picked up in a really nice 4wd and driven about 45mins from our hotel to their offices.

Once there we watched an instructional video about the Jetlev flyer and then we were given some paperwork and made our payment.

My husband was the one who did the jetlev and really enjoyed it!

They throw you in kinda head first. They explain what to do and to start with they use a remote control to control the power and keep you safe. 2 guys follow you around on a jet ski to make sure your okay and help where they can. As my husband is awesome he picked it up so quickly that they stopped using the remote and he was powering around on his own after not long.

By the end of it my poor husband was exhausted but he really really enjoyed it! he says it is a lot more strenuous than it looks and actually takes a fair amount of physical strength to control .He also said that the seat (on the jetpack) was one of the most uncomfortable things he has ever sat on but was having to much fun to care.

When we were finished they drove us back to the hotel!

Great day!!! Will be back for a jet ski safari next time we are in Samui

“Highly recommended professional tour company”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

Was a great day on the water. Jet skis were near new and very reliable. All insurance was covered so we didnt need to worry about getting ripped off. The only place worth while hiring a jet ski in samui.
The snorkeling was good and the islands we visited were 'off the beaten track' and great to see. Our tour guide Ot was very funny and spoke good English. Highly recommended!
