Excellent place to rent jet skis, see through kayaks and paddle boards at a great price. Very friendly personnel. Sonny was very attentive and made the experience very pleasant. We will become regulars.

What a relief to find a business owner who puts his customers first! We discovered Tropic Water Sports when we had dinner at Snappers in Key Largo. The quality of the jet skis as well as the very cool clear kayaks caught our attention, and we returned two days later, when we were delighted to meet the owner of Tropics, Sonny. We were beyond impressed with the first class service he provided. Most rental companies send you off with very little knowledge of the area sweet spots. Sonny made sure we had water on board, protection for our phones, and road with us a little way out to make sure we were comfortable with the equipment. He pointed out the sweet sports and even took pictures for us!! When came back we were delighted with a cool shower, a fresh towel, and the opportunity for a quick clothing change :) ! Tropic Water Sports is a treasure waiting to be discovered!!!!! Thank you, Sonny!!

My Mom was in town and we sporadically drove down to Key Largo and ended up stopping for lunch next Tropic Water Sports. It was a beautiful day out so we decided to go jet skiing for an hour. Sonny was so helpful and kind. He helped us get set up on the jet ski and then took us out to show us were to go to best enjoy our time. He provided water and plastic bags for phones then towels to dry off after. He was incredibly friendly! I highly recommend stopping by to enjoy a day on the water!!

The most amazing clear kayaks to enjoy your entire surroundings! If you don't want to read about my full experience just know that this company has quality equipment that I have not seen elsewhere in Miami or Key Largo, also shower and towel service available, a great restaurant and bar next door and the most caring and compassionate owners. Sonny and Gwen made us feel welcome as soon as we walked up and made us feel safe throughout our ocean adventure. This will now be my go to spot for water sports and I already have plans to return next weekend for another day on the water.

Today a friend and I took a day trip down from Miami to Key Largo and were lucky enough to be directed to Tropic Water Sports. We walked up and were immediately greeted by Gwen who welcomed us to the area and explained the different equipment they have available (clear kayaks, jet skis, versatile paddle boards).

We took out a clear kayak that fits 1-2 people, talked with Gwen about safety out on the water while Sonny set up our materials (Snorkel fins and mask, dive flag, cooler with water, and life vests). We were able to leave our belongings in the office and we were ready to get going. Sonny and Gwen gave us great recommendations of islands to visit and we had a wonderful time swimming, snorkeling and kayaking around.

Unfortunately my friend and I got lost on our way back as we were distracted by the fish around and the ocean floor below us. The wind pushed us father South than expected. Luckily, Sonny and Gwen called to check in to make sure we found everything okay and we were safe and we explained our situation. We managed to drift South of the hut and were lost. We realized our mistake but were than tasked with fighting the current to get back North. Sonny took no time before hopping on a jet ski, finding us and taking us back to shore and towing our kayak behind us. We were tired, a little panicked and ready to get back and he made sure we had our belongings and that we were safe. Both Sonny and Gwen were so kind and caring truly making us feel like we were family. I know that all places will assist guests when lost but believe me when I say they did everything they could to make us as comfortable as possible. We will definitely be back.
