Great wave runner dolphin tour. We were inexperienced drivers, but still had a great time. Plus our tour guide got us up close to the Dolphins. So fun. Go - you won’t regret it.

Used the para-sailing and the jet ski dolphin tour. Para-sailing, paid extra for the pictures, not worth it, but good para-sailing. Jet ski tour was excellent, worth the price and say a lot of dolphins. I would definetely do this again.More

Any age can ride but they must be 16 to drive. Of course we always use good judgment based on the child. Younger children often do best when going for shorter rides. 4 year old and up generally love it.
