Pro’s: Overall experience was good! Trainer was amazing and i was scared as hell but after you realize you won’t fall off when speeding you are good! Wish we had more water space to be in but it worked. Jet skis are intimidating as a first time rider but after a few take offs you will have a ball! Cons: the boat broke down and we had to wait an hour before going back to the pier. The space to use the jet ski is limited but again it works. There is a boat certification you have to take before you can ride. It’s literally an exam online that cost 8.99 you read and then take a 25 questions test and Mia glass before you can use the jet ski . TAKE THE TEST THE NIGHT BEFORE! It’s only for persons born on or after January 1,1988.

Experience was almost perfect. The only thing to improve is timing. My scheduled time is 10am so I arrive 30min earlier as instructed on the confirmation but they actually come at 1030, which might be a miscommunication between the staff and agency. Also no need to arrive earlier if you prepare all the paperwork. The 30min is for those coming with nothing. In the end they start at ~11am and I’m late for about an hour so almost miss my flight. Please be more timely.

There was a problem with the jet skis not working, they knew how to fix it and we had to wait. The rest of the activity was excellent, the monitors are very friendly and concerned about safety at all times. If you follow the instructions it is a very entertaining and safe activity.
