What you'll do
Your ride will take 90 minutes from start to finish. We will launch from Sunset Beach in Tarpon Springs riding into the world famous Sponge Docks. There you will experience the sights and smells of this amazing area and feel the Greek culture that have made this town the Sponge Capital of the world. Next we will ride out of the mouth of Anclote River out to the Anclote Key Reserve. Here you will experience the inner channels of the Island. Water is normally flat in the channels enabling high speed thrills on the jet ski. While touring these island the aquatic life is abundant. You may see dolphins, rays, manatees, sharks, tarpon, sea turtles and more swimming about in these warm gulf waters. Your last stop will be the beautiful and intimate Three Rooker Island to swim and collect sea shells for souvenir. Our journey will come to a close returning to Sunset. I highly recommend sticking around to view the million dollar sunset this beach is aptly named for. Complete your time in Tarpon Springs by visiting one of the many wonderful restaurants and craft breweries this city has to offer. You will understand why Tarpon Springs was named in the top 3 USA Today's Best Small Towns. Price is per jet ski not per person.
I am a true water man, actively participating in all things water from snorkeling at Hanama Bay in Hawaii, whitewater rafting the New River Gorge in West Virginia to Surfing the Great Lakes in Michigan. I have competed in the Sprint and Paddle competition as a SUP rider in the upper midwest to making friends and family with the small knit SUP Surfer community who eagerly await for hurricane season to surf the the Gulf Coast of Florida where i now reside for several years. I've owned and operated Sea Doo jet skis for over 25 years and take pride in sharing the essential how-to's of these personal watercrafts. I spend hours weekly out on the St Joeph Sound and know all the wonderful sites to see and experience. To ride a jet ski is like riding a motor cycle on the water. Safety and comfort is priority. Price is per Jet ski.
