“A vacation must do....and for locals too....”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

My daughter surprised me for fathers day for a hour and half wave runner safari ride with Tidalwave. What a blast. We had a super guide, Ryan. He explained everything on the operation of the wave runners and was very patient to make sure safety was first and foremost, then came the fun. Running full throttle through the marsh area islands around Isle of Palms. Great views, dolphins, shell beds etc. This is must do. All the staff were very customer focused and extremely friendly. Thanks Ryan we had a great time.

“Will is a good guide”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

He was calm, composed and gave clear instructions. You can't ask for much more from a guide. The jet skis are fast and super fun. Definitely come try it out

“Fun! Fun! Fun!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Went on our 2nd jet ski excursion with Tidal Wave (1st was 2 years ago). Will and Dahlton were our guides and we had a great time. We had a big group of 9 and they were very friendly and even rode with one member of our group during our free ride to get them more comfortable driving the jet ski for the first time. Everyone had a lot of fun!

“What a Blast!”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Went there on a girl's weekend, called and made reservations for the jet ski safari. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Dalton was our guide and he was fun. Got to see dolphins...which was awesome. Great time with a company that understands customer service and knows what it is doing. Had a blast!
