Jet ski ride

Excellent service and very nice location by the bay. Didn't have to wait in the line. Staff was professional and flexible to accommodate our ride ahead of time

We booked a reservation for a 9:30 jet ski dolphin tour in advance. We received a confirmation email asking us to arrive 20 min in advance. When we got there at 9:10, no one showed up. No one showed up the entire morning, not even after 10AM when the office was supposed to have opened. The phone line, even after... More

This was our second trip to Great White. Both times the staff was very pleasant and the wave runners were perfect. You get a large area in the Chesapeake Bay to run around in. We had a great time on both trips. Highly recommended.

The guide took us on a 30 mile round trip and found a spot with lots of dolphins, it was lovely. I was slightly nervous as a beginner and the sea was quite bumpy but felt safe at all times and my 20yr old son said it was the best morning of his life! The staff and guides were great,... More

Our family ( mom, dad, 16 year old, 12 year old and 3 year old) all went on the dolphin jet skiing tour. The staff was professional, accommodating and very very nice. We had a blast out on the water with tour guide Justin. We saw several pods of dolphins including ones with babies. Justin was attentive, professional and had... More

So, I have done this tour twice, once alone, and once with my girlfriend (I rode in back so she could have fun driving). Now I have rented jet skis before. Usually, you are given a 300ft X 300ft (or so) square of water where you can basically barely do dounts and don't even think about going near anyone else.... More

Not only was this an incredible experience, all of the people who work there are excellent. Stayed in Norfolk for the weekend and this was on our "must do list." We had never jet skied, but the staff gives you brief, but concise and clear instructions and sends you off to get your moneys worth. The hour was perfect and... More

My wife and I went on a jet ski tour. I had ridden jet skis before, but it was a first time for my wife. They had her driving and comfortable almost immediately through clear, succinct, and helpful instructions. We saw dozens of dolphins and a few even flipped. The tour guide shared some interesting facts and even took us... More

Place is nice and well kept. Staff is great, accommodating and very helpful. They offer military discount too. The place is preferable to rent jet skis as it is less crowded and offer more privacy compared to Virginia Beach. It would have been a more perfect experience if there was an area to rinse off/shower. Overall a great experience.
