We did the Banana Boat one morning and the Waverunner Safari the next. With two kids aged 7 and 10 they both loved both trips. Plenty of speed, splashing and bumping on the banana boat with a guide who was willing to customize the thrills as the kids grew in confidence. The safari was fast and fun. Dolphins, crabs, birds and jumping fish all to see at 45mph!

My family and I did the 90 minute safari jet ski tour with Connor as our guide (90 minutes went by very fast) and saw some dolphins along the way along with some the islands that are protected in their natural state of beauty.

My boyfriend and I went back and went parasailing and it was exhilarating! We went up together the first time then I went back up by myself and it was so much fun...they are very safety conscious, knowledgeable, funny, and will show you a great time! Definitely will be returning next year!

We did the jet ski safari on Tuesday and the parasail on Friday. Both were great. Would recommend these guys for any of the activities they offer. Very professional, very knowledgeable, great fun!

Wow! So glad the kids talked us into the Safari tour....90 minutes of a jet ski tour around the marshes and back waterways of IOP. So you have the beauty of protected land combined with the fun of jet ski freedom. Mark, the owner, was welcoming and full of local color. Connor, our tour guide was awesome! He was knowledgeable and wanted to make sure that everyone had a great time but remained safe. Will be back! Thanks guys!

We had such a great time tubing that we went again 2 days later. I went with my daughters and nieces, ages 10 to 13 and both trips were just great. The captain and mate went out of their way to make sure the girls were safe and had a good time. We'll definitely come back to Tidal Wave Water Sports the next time we're in Isle of Palms.
