Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great time with wet cat. Staff very helpful, courteous and organised. You get a quick lesson before departure and staff happy to give you ideas on where to go.

2 hours is the perfect time as the Craig cat allows you to go up the creeks which is extremely beautiful and gives you some fast fun scenery to look at or ta e through the bends. After which you can go out on st. John’s river and play a bit in the rougher tide. I was only expecting to just be around in open water so the ability to go up the creeks is spectacular fun.

Surprisingly you don’t get wet unless you start doing circles / jumping your own wake so you can happily speed along full throttle and stay dry.

I’m normally a person that can find odd faults but absolutely can’t.

Great fun and a reasonable price. Go do it

This visit was with my Mom, 81, and we both had an absolute BLAST! She even laughed when we went faster. Doug, the manager, explained the craft very well, provided a map and how to contact him if we had any issues (which we did not have to do). It was Beautiful, even breathtakingly so, with the smooth waters, clouds, birds and wild flowers. We will definitely be coming back with our friends and families. Well done!

We chose Wet Cat APB because we just wanted to spend an hour on the water. Based on the reviews, we thought it would be nice. Now for the let down. The reviews were all posted based on the 'old', Six Mile Creek, location. The new location is in Palatka, on the St. Johns River. At this location the river is very wide (about 1.5 mi according to Google maps). And to be honest it's a little scary when it's windy - you're probably going to get a little wet on the CraigCat. Also keep in mind that is not a whole lot to see in the immediate area, even if you stick close to the shore line.
Overall, it wasn't terrible, but also not the super fun time I was hpoing/expecting to have.

Such a wonderful day! By far our favorite thing we did our entire vacation! The manager Doug was the best and such nice place! The “boating” for 2 was fast and fun, my 12 and 15 year old had the best time with us!! Thanks again, we will be back in October, definitely on our every time list when we come back!

Rented at wetcat today and enjoyed our ride on the St Johns river. These 2 person boats are easy to drive and very maneuverable. We had a great time.

We loved the Craigcat! We rode for 2 hours and enjoyed the open waters and the scenic “back in time” route. Very polite and attentive staff. Doug was great!! We’ll definitely be back!!
