My wife & I had never been on jet skis before, but we are buying one now! Great tour and and a much better way to see Stingrays and snorkel the reef than being packed on a boat with a bunch of people. Only had seven people in our group plus the guide which allowed you handle the stingrays and snorkel until the group had enough! This was the best excursion we did on our cruise and well worth the money. Our ships schedule made this a little bit tight timewise, but Ebanks made sure we made it back on time. Ebanks employees were all knowledgeable and courteous. Jet skis were in good working order and having a compartment on the jet ski to store your valuables was great. Thanks again for a very memorable experience. Highly recomend them and they were much less than the same tour with the ship.

My husband and I took a jet-ski tour from Ebanks and can't even begin to describe how wonderful our day was! On our trip there were only 3 skis plus the guide (I believe they take up to 6). They were very safety conscious providing us with the right equipment, PFD and a locked storage area for our belongings. The ski also has a small space for tucking a few things you may want to bring with you onboard. As soon as we got out of the canal system we opened it up and flew to our first stop, Stingray City. Our guide picked up a ray and allowed each of us to hold it and give it a smooch with plenty of time for pictures. The rays swam all around us as we stood there. It was incredibanksble! Next off to a small reef for some snorkeling which was very good. Much better than Belize, not as good as the BVI, but quite enjoyable. Upon our return we were brought back to our cruise ship and told everyone we met how great this company and our day was. Thanks, Ebanks Watersports, for the best tour of any cruise we have taken!

The super friendly staff and small group size (8 adults on our trip) made this excursion worth every penny. It was easy to find the driver and van in Georgetown and then there was about a 10 minute scenic ride to the yacht club. Your personal gear is stored in a locked trailer while you are on the excursion. I suggest wearing your bathing suit to avoid the time it would take to change. Also, it is a good idea to have a towel to wrap around yourself and to sit on in the van on the drive back to the cruise port. It is OK for you to bring your own snorkel gear, but if you don't have your own you can use gear by EBanks. After a brief lesson at the docks we were off on the jet skis. Stingray City was awesome and we got more personal time with a stingray than the other patrons on the cruise line tours. Snorkeling was fun as well. The entire excursion was wonderful and I am so glad we booked it. Some advice I have is that if you have never snorkeled before don't be afraid to ask for help with the gear. Also, make sure your life jacket is tight; if it is loose it will make moving around in the water and snorkeling a bit difficult. And bring a waterproof camera! There is a small dry storage area on each jet ski to keep your camera and other small items dry and safe while you are operating the jet ski. Go ahead and book this excursion - you won't regret it!

We were treated so politely from our pick up to the drop off. It's advisable to bring your own towel and be sure to use sunblock. But riding the jetskis out to Starfish Island and then onto Sting Ray City with a small group was great fun. They know the sting rays by name! They come all around and brush up against your legs, it's a great experience and the people from Ebanks were very fun. I would have appreciated some bottled water at some point. That and recommending we bring bring a towel are the only two things I would like them to improve. This is a worthwhile way to go hang out with the sting rays.

This was a great trip. Very fun and I recommend it highly. Jet skis are very fast. Sting ray city should be on everyone's bucket list.
