They booked us with no reservation. Kids had a blast. My review has to have more words. It still does not have enough words.

Jet ski is $75 for 30 minutes. Book on line at our home page. When you come in to ride ask Capt. Ron if you can have 10 extra minutes free! Tell him you saw us on Trip Advisor!!
