My husband and I chose this excursion on our honeymoon. He was the driver and I was the passenger. We had an absolute BLAST! We were a little upset at first because we didn't realize this was a "guided" tour, however we enjoyed our guide and still had a lot of fun. You start with a short class on safety & operation of the jetski (apx. 10 minutes). Then, everyone gets on their skis. The guide starts first and everyone follows behind him in a line. We were numbered 1-10. 1 being the people who were comfortable going fast..and then through 10 for the people who were not so comfortable. We were followed by a "chase," a person who follows behind to make sure everyone stays on course & keeps up with the group. The guide took us around the islands and would often stop about every mile to give everyone a break & tell about the islands. Just FYI, waves are choppy and you will definitely get wet. (You won't flip unless you are doing something stupid & not controlling your ski correctly, though). If you love the water and aren't afraid to go fast I definitely recommend this excursion. We absolutely loved it! Also, Little Stirrup Cay is beautiful. After our excursion we had lunch (a buffett provided by Carnvial). Then, we found some beach chairs & some drinks and relaxed all afternoon until we had to go back. It was a perfect day! 100x better than our stop in Nassau!!
Yes, I recommend this shore excursion.

Was fun, but this was not a tour it was race as fast as you can. If you did not go fast enough to the tour guide's standards, he would move you to the back of the line. By the time the people in the back arrived to the destination the tour guide was done talking, so you missed out.
Yes, I recommend this shore excursion.

First time on jet skis and I was terrified!! My husband was the driver and I the passenger. Exhilarating and loads of fun! Well worth the money for the experience!

WE had an absolute blast!!! Bonnie and J. were great. Bonnie gave us history of islands, took us through Starfish Alley, where J. got a Starfish for
each of us, and Bonnie told us some interesting stuff about starfish!
They were both very professional and lots of fun. If you like adventure this is a must do!!!
Yes, I recommend this shore excursion.

...this is just a jet ski race...we raced out way behind the ship and back...didn't get to really SEE anything...too busy flying...going about 30mph...the instructor wasn't very patient with us...if you want to SEE some of the island, starfish, etc...I do NOT recommend this...
No, I do not recommend this shore excursion.

This was, by far, my boyfriend and my favorite part of our vacation! It's not a guided tour. You just line up and race across the waves. Definitely a thrill, especially if you have never jet skied on the ocean before. Our guide took us by Starfish Alley where the water is waist deep and let us get off and pick up/look at the starfish. They were EVERYWHERE! It was SO cool! The hut that you meet up at is in a random location and we weren't really sure where to go at first. So, make sure you ask someone so that you don't wander around aimlessly for 30 minutes. :) Definitely worth every penny! :)
Yes, I recommend this shore excursion.
