John and Will were awesome. They take the time to make sure you fully understand the jets capabilities and are confident when flying. They also ensure you are safe while doing it. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area-Scott

This is a lot of fun. It is not easy to master but the guys keep you safe and coach you through each step. You will be able to fly in one session. More sessions could make you a better flyer. I came late in the season and didn't have as many opportunities as I would have liked. John and... More

Scary at first but Will and John put us at ease and only did what we could handle. They were very patient and kind. This was a great experience outside of the usual box. Adrenaline and fun. Thanks guys!

I tried the Jetlev thinking it would be easy but it was more difficult than I thought. The 2 instructors were very helpful and never gave up on me. I was able to skim above the water around the boat but i never took flight in the air. I messed up and went under the water and for a few... More

My friend and I each booked the one hour JetLev experience and had a blast. John and Will were awesome and kept us laughing the whole time. The JetLev was tricky at first to get used to handling it, but John was talking into the microphone in the helmet the whole time making sure we felt comfortable. At the end... More

Will and John were both great teaching us how to JetLev. Professional yet friendly, they made this a great experience! Through use of radio communication in the helmet, John gives feedback to help the JetLever make the most of the ride, allowing you to get up to 30 feet in the air if you follow his guidance. Take some cash... More

Used the JetLev at the Trade Winds resort on 16 JUL 2016. John and Will made it fun and safe at the same time. Will was always there on a jet ski if I needed help, John was always communicating to me on the radio. If I get back down there I will definitely be doing the JetLev again.
