Came down to Galveston with my family. Was not sure on what to do while we were here so I looked on here for ideas, right away Suntime Watersport caught my attention and it kept my attention! Pricing was great for the 20 minutes of pure thrilling fun. Very worth it!

The MAX Thrill Ride was better than expected. Instead of the 15 minute ride advertised, we were sped and spun around Galveston Bay for nearly 30 minutes.

We were in Galveston for a whole week and this jetboat ride was the most amazing and enjoyable part of our trip! There is something for everyone: speed, music, adventure, sightseeing, water, knowledge about the island, etc.... It was so much fun and Graham was amazing! He is an excellent driver and wonderful host! My husband, son, and myself could not stop talking about it on the way home. We are planning to go back at the end of the summer and we will definitely be back to ride the jetboat again!!! Until then I am helping to advertise by wearing my tank top :)

This was the best way to cool off and definitely the funnest thing to do on the island. I have seen these jet boat rides all over Australia and New Zealand for almost three times the price! What a great thrill ride at an amazing price! We had dolphins surface right next to the boat! We could almost touch them! And the spins had us all screaming and waving our arms like on a roller coaster! The captain was very knowledgeable and looked after his passengers very well.

Thrill ride. Dolphin tour. Galveston history. Sightseeing. The best way to cool off on a hot day. Charismatic Captain. SunTime Watersports is a one of a kind experience that offers it all. I can't wait to go again my next visit to Galveston.
