Made the mistake of seeing this on-line and thinking it would be fun for all the family.
We booked 2 water buggys for half an hour. Got towed out of the port and were then let loose,
one buggy stopped within 10 minutes and had to be towed around the bay for rest of the 30 min hire duration. The other was snail paced and totally boring.
We were given a ten euro refund for the dud (paid 35) and when we told the owner they were
too slow they just agreed that " yeah they are a bit !"
If you are in the area try another water sport activity as this one is a waste of time and money !

Dear Tony

Thank you for your review of 20 June and are sorry you found the experience such a negative one. However please let me explain : Before you boarded the buggies you asked if they were fast and you were told no between 5 and 7 mph. When the buggy broke down after 15 mins (after being driven over a plastic bag) Nev and Josh were going to bring it in with a full refund but the lady on board asked if it was possible to be towed around the bay with a possible partial refund. As we pride ourselves on customer service we agreed to this. On returning to the port you demanded a refund. Nev offered you a 10 euro refund and explained the the reason why. The lady who asked to be towed agreed to Nev's explanation and you both accepted the refund bearing in mind your whole family still had the full 30 mins activity. As you can see from previous reviews the waterbuggy's are a bit of chill out fun and our customer service speaks for itself! Once again I'm sorry you feel this way.

Kind regards

We hired a zodiac inflateable boat from waterbuggy fun and I found them to be extremely friendly and family orientated. We went out for an hour and even had dolphins swim around the boat. A brilliant way to spend an hour.

The Waterbuggy Fun team made this an excellent experience. Claire was brilliant & answered all my questions prior to booking. We booked the super pack for our family of 4 which is fantastic value. On the day Claire was there to meet us & made us very welcome & at ease as did her husband & son. They provided first class customer service before, during & after our water sports day. Will def be back next time we are on the island & do it all again! Have a fantastic summer guys & will recommend you to everyone coming to the island!

My wife and I along with our 4 yo son took a waterbuggy out to sea for hour under the watchful eye of Josh who we followed in his boat out to the fish farm in search of whales and dolphins. Unfortunately we didn't see any but did have a great time. The family who run the business are super friendly and were kind, helpful and down to earth. I would definitely recommend having a go if you're in the Puerto Colon area. Either book online or make a booking through one of the excursion places. Enjoy!!

Great day out! Me and my sisters loved it! The family who run the business are absolutely lovely! We even saw a dolphin!
Word of advice- bring sun cream with you!
