After signing the WAIVER that blames you for any collisions, drowning , injuries caused through actions of the boat operator, my young nephew broke his leg and had to go to the hospital when the boat towed by the company's Wave Runner flipped. He also bashed his head pretty good. Note to all - please consider other activities, and do not go on these bouncing inflatable death traps unless you are willing to accept all the risks. Turns out injuries are pretty common, and your recourse is likely nil ...DANGEROUS!

We had an excellent cruise on the Salty Cat. It was a beautiful evening to be on the water. The complementary drinks were enjoyed by all. This cruise is a great opportunity to get out on the water and sailing, IMHO, is the best way to do it. Pro tip: make sure you get out on the bow area’s cross desk trampoline to really get the sailing experience.

We had the BEST experience and adventure on The Salty Cat catamaran! We took the evening sunset sail and will definitely want to do this again! Captain Rigo and assistant D were truly the best, wanting to provide a top notch memory!

Went kayaking as a group - Mike was our guide, he did a great job of pointing out all of the interesting areas, explained exactly what we needed to be aware of, and even helped one of our group members back when she had trouble paddling through the strong currents.

As a retired U.S. Navy officer I truly appreciate the superb water sports and most of all safely run business Island Water Sports is. This was our second visit to the very popular water sports rental facility. The manager, Lauren, Freddie, and Cameron were very professional, customer friendly, and efficient herding about 10 guests for a morning wave runner (jet ski) rental. Lauren checked all the customers in quickly and in a excellent friendly manner. The waver runner guides, Freddie and Cameron, were superb with the thorough 10-minute safety and rules brief and video. We have rented wave runners in other beach towns and Island Water Sports takes Top Score - they are extremely safety conscious (THANK YOU) and make the 1-hour rental period on Calibogue Sound so much fun. After donning our float vest we easily boarded our wave runners with Cameron's assistance. We had a nice slow no-wake ride out of Braddock Cove to the entrance at Lands End to Calibogue Sound which is massive. Our ride area was about a 4 square mile box boundered by Sea Pines Plantation, Shell Island, and Dufuskie Island - it was perfect and easy to navigate. We had choppy and calm water and we blessed with seeing well-over 30 dolphins and their calves while respecting nature of course as we are visitors to the dolphins world. My wife and I agreed we will be back for another fun run on the wave runners as soon as possible. Tips - call ahead for a reservation and morning runs are best with less heat. We really want to shout out to Lauren, Freddie, and Cameron for a safe, fun, and totally worthwhile wave runner rental. BRAVO ZULU to Island Water Sports.
