“Fun and affordable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We had so much fun renting jetskis at Woody's Watersports! Woody has the best deals on the beach. We paid $55 for a 10am hour-long jet ski rental with no deposit required. Woody is also super friendly and nice. He takes pictures of jet skiers as they swim out to the Gulf. If I rent a jet-ski again visiting TI, it will be from Woody. Two thumbs up!

“Jet Ski Rentals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Each time we visit John's Pass we rent jet skis from Woody's Water Sports. Woody is the very friendly owner operator of the business. He's very courteous and very accommodating. The jet skis are the best in the area. We went as a family and rented 4 out for an hour. They are well maintained and if you like fast, they're fast. We saw plenty of dolphins when we were out in the Gulf actually some swam right along side us.
You'll find his assistant Mike, just as friendly as Woody and the prices are very reasonable.
During peak times be sure to call ahead and reserve.

“extreme fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

I was looking for something fun to entice my teenage boys to the beach and this is definitely it! First of all Woody was extremely helpful answering all my questions on the phone before I called to book. He continued to be just as helpful in person. It was the first time for all of us. We rented the 110 hp and even with those you can fly over the water. The boys loved it except the grumpy one who was too young to drive. It is a bit of a work out though especially so for the passenger who has to hold on. You will definitely feel it in your shoulders after an hour on the gulf. And if you happen to jump off into the water it isn't as easy as teenage boys make it look to get back ON! looking forward to going again...

“Fun jet skiing experience. Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

Woody's Watersports provided a great experience to highlight my day trip to St Petersburg. We were greeted by Woody as soon as we walked in, and he referred us to an assistant, Michael, since he was already with customers. Michael was very competent and helpful in explaining the options, rules, and operations. All the staff was genuinely friendly, and even remembered our names after we got back after an hour! The jet skis are Yamaha 3-seaters and you can rent them at 110, 130, and 150 HP. We rented the 130 HP which provided plenty of OOMPH for 2 people. the 110 HP would have been plenty fine for those preferring a more moderate cruising pace. It was a blast zooming around the gulf coastal area! There are storage bins, disposable, waterproof cameras available for purchase, and a small, private changing area. When we left Woody even made sure we knew how to get to our next destination. I will definitely seek their business again if I find myself in the area

“Great and affordable jetski rentals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

My husband rented a jetski for an hour. The ski was in great shape and was much less expensive to rent than the ones at the resort ion St. Pete Beach. He got a discount from the rental packaged with a parasailing place next door.
The employees were really helpful and they locked up his phone so he could call me when he was done.
