“Great Company, very nice people!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

My boyfriend and I purchased a 3 hour rental. Unfortunately on the day of our rental it was downpouring rain! We tried to stick it out on the open water but the lightning got a little too serious so we brought the waverunner back in. They were unbelievably nice and understanding and agreed to only charge us for the hour we actually got to use the craft. A few days later when it appeared that the refund didnt go through on my bank account, I sent them an email to look into it, I received an immediate response and the issue was resolved. They are super super nice and the craft we rented was amazing! We will definitely be going back here (hopefully with better weather!)

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

We found Full Throttle on Trip Advisor and booked a 4 hour rental for 2 machines. We had great, friendly and reliable service. The machines were in excellent condition. Full Throttle is a family owned business. We did not want a guided tour,so they gave us a map and went over possible routes and how to use/read the channel markers and clear instructions on the use of the machines. We'll be back!! We had previously rented jet skis out of Naples and did not have the same good experience: and you have a much longer "No Wake" zone to go through in Naples.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

Firstly, I have to say that the two sisters who took us out on the 2 hour eco tour were absolutely fantastic.
They had a relaxed but confident approach and made us feel like we mattered. Sometimes you encountered the false positivity that you get with services like these, but the girls were 100% genuine and you could really tell they enjoyed their job.

The jetski's and equipment provided ( inc bottles water and waterproof safe boxes) came in very handy, especially after we dumped ourselves in the water trying to turn with no power. lol.

The tour itself was great, we saw dolphins feeding, rare birds, ospreys nests, and an assortment of other wildlife as we navigated through the thousand islands and into the blackwater river.

The change in the water colour ( and smell) was incredible as we headed up river. We then headed back out into choppy water and jumped some waves ( at a comfortable pace which we dictated). The tour then took us to the eco domes and back along the beach front to get an amazing view of the length and colour of the beachfront.

The time flew in and the girls stopped the tours along the way to give us info on all the wildlife. that their eagle eyes spotted. They were very knowledgeable so for us it wasn't about just power jetski'ing, it was about exploring and understanding, all done on a powerful water craft!

We plan to go back before our vacation ends and do another tour, the full throttle one. Value for money, it was exceptional. I cant rate this experience highly enough.

Just go do it and you'll see what we mean

“A Wonderful Family Business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Full Throttle is an amazing family business. Everyone is extremely helpful. They put your safety first above all. You're provided with very clear instructions on how to operate the machines. Prior to leaving, someone will go over a map with possible routes and teaches you how to use the channel markers. They even provide you with complementary dry boxes for you phone that you return upon

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

We found Full Throttle on Trip Advisor and Google when looking for jet ski rental options in Marco Island. We found a coupon for a slightly discounted price; from what I understood from my friend, the coupon had some stipulations to use it, but the woman who she spoke with honored either the price of the coupon or very close, not 100% sure. Regardless, they were fairly priced and seemed to "do the right thing".

We met them at a park / boat dock on South Collier. The father/daughter were very friendly and welcoming, also very helpful with instructions and directions. They drove us in on the trailer and we went out around the area for a good hour. The location was amazing, plenty on inlets and easy access to the Gulf. The waves were far choppier out in the Gulf. We saw some dolphins in the inlets and there were also some places where you can get off and look for shells/explore the area.

The equipment was in great condition and seemed very safe and well cared for. We had a great experience and would highly recommend Full Throttle for anyone.
