Went on the sunset cruise which was very fun. Nick, our captain, was informative of the owners of the large houses on shore and always slowed down for dolphins or other wildlife. He positioned us for a good view of the sunset. Free beer and wine is also a plus. Two captains from Siesta Key Watersports worked together on the... More

We were in Siesta Key over Christmas and and a small group of us (3) wanted to take jet skis out. While the staff at Siesta Key Watersports was great, our overall jet ski experience was very disappointing. We chose to take the jet skis for only one hour, and because of this were limited to the bay area. My... More

Thank you for coming out to jet ski with us over the Christmas Holiday. I just wanted to clarify for others that you CAN go out to the gulf and ride, but you need to rent for at least one and a half hours in order to have time to enjoy it there as you must go through a no... More

Take the time and book this company... they are kind, humerus and very attentive. My wife and I did the parasailing and we had a blast. Just be aware that when you do the parasailing that you will invest at least 2.5 to 3 hours. Everyone from the boat captains to the first mate made the experience memorable and fun.... More

Captain Nick did an outstanding job with our teens and us! You can never guarantee seeing Dolphins but we were lucky and got an up close sighting with them jumping behind our boat in the waves!! It was a beautiful night with a great smooth ride! Great job Captain Nick! We would do this again!!!

This was an amazing experience! VENICE PARASAILING, Ty and Shannon, were super efficient and professional in announcing and demonstrating safety techniques, in handling the boat and parachute, and in the actual parasailing for all of us, ages 17 to 70. We will go again! Even their selection of music was conducive to the group's enjoyment!

We had a great day out on the water with George. He was fun and professional - and excellent at spotting dolphins. We followed two for quite some time. It was absolutely magical. He also shared info about the area and took us to a sand bar to explore for a bit. The boat was comfortable and fun and George... More

Our bachelorette group of 7 had the pure pleasure of spending 2 hours sight seeing Siesta Key on the water! Captain Beard was super knowledgeable, funny, and docked a boat like no man has before!

We came here early last week to rent jet skis and could not be happier with the experience we had. No reservations needed, we just walked, signed up and they had us out almost immediately. The staff could not be more kind and helpful to myself and my 10 year old daughter who was a bit anxious. Thanks so much... More

Hubby and I had a great trip on The Boss! George took us to see the nesting pelicans and we encountered a dolphin very close up. Just six of us guests on the boat, we all got along great and it was lovely and relaxed. The cool box on the boat with the complimentary drinks was a nice touch and... More
