“Dead Last?? How!”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

No clue how in the world this place is dead last on Captiva!! Have been going here for the past 4 years, fantastic service, excellent gear! Jetski rental is a must everything we're down on the island and the staff is not only attentive, they are extremely helpful and have that "surfer dude" attitude which is a 100%+!

“Surprise Charges Upon Return”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

Had a great time riding around the island on the scoot coupes, but when we returned after 2 hrs. and paid $216 we were told we owed an extra $100 for breaking the throttle on one of them. This supposedly happened within the first minute of us being in the scoot coupe when we were still in the parking lot. The woman instructing us on how to operate them was incredibly rude and explained everything in about 10 seconds. If we did break it, it was because we were not properly instructed, and were not even told this until we returned. We spoke to the manager and are still waiting to see if we get charged or not. We will keep you updated.

Hello Terese,

I apologize for the character of the employee regarding the rental of your Scoot Coupe. This employee isn't affiliated with YOLO any longer. The $100 charge for the throttle was not processed. The model year Scoot Coupe you rented from YOLO had issues with the throttle stop pin within the throttle assembly. This was a weak point and has beed resolved in the newer Scoot Coupe (2013) that YOLO offers for rental.

“Bad to the Bone, Can't wait to go back for this one.”
Reviewed January 2, 2012

This place is awesome cool. They have all kinds of toys to rent and trips to do. Kayaks, YOLO boards, parasailing, everything fun. We set up a jet ski excursion to Cayo Costa. This is an intense tour that is wide open for fun. We had Dustin for our guide who has spent his whole life in the area. Knew a lot things but kept it brief informative and fun. We found dolphins on several occasions and had lots of time to rip across the water too. Wonderful island tour. Cannot say enough good things about this and we do jet ski tours all over the world. Thank you Dustin and Thank you YOLO. Its our best memory from the trip. Cannot wait to see you next year.
