Ethan was such a kick butt tour guide! He even kept his cool and didn't get mad when I accidentally followed another group on similar jet skis! Oops! Everyone at Tidalwave was super helpful and friendly but he takes the cake! Thanks, man!

Ethan! Ethan! Ethan! He was absolutely the best guide on our trip. We did a Safari cruise and had the time of our life. Our children, ages 13 and 18, also had a terrific experience!

Jeremy was an outstanding "Safari" leader. We had a great time and worth every penny. I found every employee that we dealt with was friendly and helpful. We'll be back!!
