I highly recommend this place

This is a top notch operation. We rented Jet Skis and also did parasailing. We found the staff to be professional and safe. The 2 guys who took us parasailing were TERRIFIC! We had never done it before and they made us feel very comfortable. My 10 year old daughter was a little hesitant and they were SO good with her! Prices are high but no different from anywhere in the Outerbanks and they offer all kinds of discounts

I think my children would move In with these folks, if they had bunks. They rode Jet Skis twice yesterday, and did the sea kayaking as well. We did the parasailing earlier in the week.

They really like the people that work here……very personable. I listened to the young lady that went over the safety procedures for riding the jet skis. She was very patient and went over what to do and what to expect.

Very pleased with the level of customer service, and the entire experience.

It stands to reason that they run a great business…..every time I pass by their location, they are swarming with customers
