Woody and Michael were fantastic. My daughter and her husband rented one ski for one hour and Woody let them split the time. While they were out on the water Woody made a point of talking with my wife and me. He is a really nice guy with a great sense of humor. When you leave Woody's on your ski you go out of the bay, under a draw bridge, out into the Gulf. My daughter got to see three dolphins while on her ride. Both of the kids (in their forties) said the ski was very fast and neither got it up to full speed. There were wet suits available, but the kids didn't use them. Other than four steps to get from the dock to the ski Woody's is accessible for wheel chairs, etc.

Our grandchildren aged 15 and 9 along with their Grandpa really enjoyed their jet ski experience! Woody's was thorough in their orientation and we felt very secure in the safety of the gear. The hour fee was more affordable than we had expected. Definitely a highlight of our beach getaway!

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!

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.

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...
