Jetski and Dolphins— enough said.

Really a neat way to get out and see the dolphins. They get pretty close to the jetskis. This is a fun way to get out on the water in SPI.

I have been making visits to SPI for a couple of years now and these guys are the only folks I go to for the things I need - be it kiting equipment, advice or any rentals. In my opinion this is the only address you need to have fun in the water.

Great activity for the family. Gives you a better opinion of the Gulf waters. Nice safe area. Not too long or too short of an activity.

We rented paddle boards for the first time, could of asked for better customer service. Was giving very detailed instructions on how to paddle board ( harder then it looks) from currents in the water to balancing yourself, could ask for a better time

Very easy group to work with! We had a large group and they got us all checked in and on the water really fast. Prices were good as well.

My son and I went on the jet ski tour and I gotta tell ya ... Our guide Jeff was awesome !!! His son is the assistant tour director, (he's 7 if I remember correctly) and it was just he and his son and myself and my son out on the water. It felt more like a couple of guys... More

We did the Jet Ski Dolphin Tour with Jeff as our guide. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to ride jet skis with their kids. I decided to do the tour with my 8-yr old son and wife because I thought they might be hesitant to do the jet ski rentals. I wanted to introduce my son... More
