This is the place to rent your jet ski! It is located right on the beach with a HUGE area to ride. Knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. If you want to experience the Gulf of Mexico, this is the place!

Discovered this place walking on the beach. People were friendly, sat and chatted with Tham while waiting on our rides. Fantastic time out on the ocean! Thanks!
