My wife and I visited Key West for the first time and took one of these tours. It was fantastic. Our guides, John and Jack were very knowledgeable and made every one feel at ease as we toured the circumference of both Stock Island and Key West. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get out on the water for a couple hours. Well worth the price. Will go again when we come back.

Our family of four reserved directly through the company. First timers for all of us to ride waverunners. Machines all were flawless in operation and all the power and seat comfort you could ask for. Most everyone in our tour group of 5 machines eventually fell off but that's all in the fun. Our guide, Jon, was light hearted, informative and patient. The 2-hour+ ride around the whole island of Key West was a blast, with a good mix of fairly light to moderate choppy waves, making it easy to hold a 30mph ride with peak throttle-up opportunities to get over 40mph...which is both scary and thrilling! Goggles or secured sunglasses are recommended due to the sea spray. The 5 or so stops included our guide providing some background history and geographics of the area, and gave us some fun time riding around in that area, both of which were nice. Hands, arms, legs and butts might ache just a little the next day but I promise you, this is a great and exciting adventure to do, especially for first-timers like us. Highly recommended. Tipping at the ride's exit is a thoughtful ending to show appreciation for an entertaining time. Enjoy a cold beer or a drink, along with a good burger, at the Hurricane Hole Bar right on site...the well-skilled bartender Jeremy can mix a great rum runner!

Took time away from our cruise to jet ski in Key West. This group is great, the wave runners are great, and jet skiing around Key West is fantastic. We first used TripAdvisor to find a good company to ski with, and this one stood out. It's on Stock Island across Key West from the cruise docks , but worth the taxi ride over. Booked this excursion directly, not through the cruise line. Our guide, Dante, is a Key West native and explained enough to make the visit worthwhile in addition to the blast we had on the WaveRunners. As old as we are, we had a great time. Because the Atlantic side was very choppy, Dante modified the trip... Much Appreciated! Highly recommend this group for water sports. Just do it!

A group of eight of us went on the windiest day of our Thanksgiving week trip to Key West. Most of us had never been on wave runners. We were totally abused by the waves. We were battered by wind driven water stinging our face. We had a few people take some unexpected tumbles into the water. My hands and arms were sore for days. Still, perhaps the best experience of our trip. Great guides. What fun. I was envious as I watched other tours go by on calmer days, but then I think we got the best ride.

This jet ski tour was a lot of fun. The tour guides are really laid back and give you plenty of time to goof off and have a blast! I would definitely recommend this place for jet ski rentals!
