If you are planning a trip to Clearwater Beach and would like to rent a jet ski, give Fin a try. You won't be sorry. My boyfriend and I went out with Fin during our stay on the beach. The weather was a little chilly, but Fin agreed to take us out. We did the two hour tour and the price was very reasonable. My boyfriend had never driven a jet ski before and was struggling, so Fin jumped on the ski and helped him out. Once we began, Fin showed us celebrity houses and other beautiful architecture. We also passed by small islands and saw hundreds of birds resting on the water to keep warm. We stopped at a small island called Honeymoon Island where we gathered some nice shells. It was beautiful, because you could look on the horizon and see only water and sky. We saw a few dead sharks that had washed up, and Fin told us what they were. They were really cool to see up close. On the way back I was able to drive, and it felt great to be in control of the ski. The overall experience was awesome, and if I were to visit Clearwater again this tour would be on the top of my list. Maybe next time we will get two skis. P.S. Fin told us that if we didn't soak our shells in bleach water, they would smell so he let us soak them in a bucket on his dock to pick them up the next day. We also had the pleasure of meeting his wife, and she was great to talk to. If you're looking for a tour from someone who cares and takes the time to get to know his guest, look no further. These are good people.

My 9 year old daughter and I choose Fin's jet-ski tours largely based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. Fin was an instant hit and we extended our trip to a remote island as my daughter wanted to find more shells and Boy! did she find 'em...
We were on a tight schedule and Fin expertly brought us back just in time, so that I didn't get into trouble with the rest of our family. All in all an excellent experience. Would love to go back to Fin's tours during our next visit.

My wife and I had a terrific experience at Fin's. In our case we took out a single jet-ski together and were the only people on the tour, which was fantastic. We cruised out into open water in the gulf (big waves!) and went blazing through the calm inner waterways. Fin asked what we hoped to get out of the tour, and then gave us exactly what we asked for. With him guiding us around, we didn't have to worry about sandbars or speed zones; it was just a fun, relaxing time. Fin was very easy going with a good sense of humor. If we're ever back in the area we'll certainly go back! If you decide to go I recommend bringing sunscreen and arriving a bit early; the launch area was a bit hard to find, and in our case we were able to start our tour earlier than expected.

As a family with 2 teens we were initially interested in having them paddleboard for just an hour.We were so pleased with the owner's demeanour and humour that we returned the next day for all of us to Jet Ski. "Fin" was polite, friendly and funny. His instruction was very good and he emphasized safety and caution. The tour,after in the water instruction, was long and a "blast"! The time flew and we all enjoyed outselves immensely.Though the location seemed a bit out of the way,we were most pleased and felt secure with the parking and the great support and assistance of Fin's wife. GREAT personal attention. A MUST DO, with Fin !

Looked around at the overpriced Jet ski tours in Clearwater including the one outside our hotel. We found Fin's after a short internet search. Well worth the homework. We had never driven a jet ski before and they were so very patient getting us to realize that the more it seemed we were out of control, the more we just needed to "give it more gas". Once we realized that our safest bet was to go against our instincts and listen to our guides expert advise, we were gliding along the top of the water like riding on glass. The dolphins were a bonus. He took us to the spot where they play, we cut our engine and floated along while they surfaced and swam all around us. Truly an experience we will never forget, and one we will repeat every time we come down to Clearwater, which will be often and eventually permanent. Don't waste your money on the beach side rentals with the annoyed looking teenaged hotel employees. Go to Fin's for friendly, personalized guidance and the time of your life.
