Owner description: Power Up Watersports has your newest and greatest water toy called the "FlyBoard". The FlyBoard is an innovative way for you to hover above the water like Iron Man and gives you the ability to dive in and out of the water like a dolphin. Taking anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes to get the hang of, the FlyBoard is for all enthusiasts alike.We also offer non-motorized activities such as kayaks & paddleboards. If your looking for a fun day out on the water you can rent one of our brand new pontoon boats or waverunners! Our pontoon boats are even capable of playing songs right off your phone!

Our reservation was messed up and we ended up with a 22ft vs 24 ft pontoon. Our party was too large to fit on the smaller boat. The worker admitted it was his error then disappeared for 30-45 minutes before he would rebook us to another day. My husband had to hunt him down on the docks to help us. He was helping people who arrived 30 minutes after us!!! It took all of 2 minutes for him to rebook us. 45 minutes after we got there, we had to tell a car full of kids that we had to come back another day. They offered us a 25% discount, which probably didn't even cover our fuel to drive from our rental house and back....twice.

Once we actually got a boat the next day, it was nice and well kept. It hadn't been cleaned (trash can was full of beer cans) but it had plenty of gas. If I had to do it again, I'd go back to St Andrews state park and book their pontoons. Less crowded, better customer service, and lower priced.

My daughter and I had a last second rental of a jet ski while in Destin, FL.
Check in was quick and painless and at just $75 for the hour - cheaper than many of the places around. We did two hours for $140 and after some brief instruction, away we went! It was a blast and we will definitely return!

My husband gifted me a fly boarding experience for my birthday--it was fantastic! I was a little nervous, but there was no reason to be! Derek, the owner, was very personable and gave great, specific instructions. As long as I did what he said, I was successful. I was able to get up, move around, do turns, and even do some dolphin dives! It was an incredible experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

This was first place we rented a jet-ski from. The staff is great and they gave us a break on the pricing. The following week we rented a pontoon boat with some friends and they gave us discount for being repeat customers. So when it came to go jet-skiing again, we went back and they gave us still another break on the price. Compared to the other places we could have gone to, they saved us nearly $100 over the 3 weeks. The equipment is good and when we came back a few minutes over, it wasn't a big deal. Just wish they had anchors for their skis...kind of hard to enjoy a few minutes at Crab Island when you have to hold onto the jet-ski...

Hey! Sorry about the anchors... all of our skis are suppose to have anchors in them for that very reason, so I am really sorry that yours didn't! I'm glad you had a great time despite that detail and look forward to seeing you again! - Amber Merrell
