My husband and I booked a two hour tour with Fin about a month in advance of our scheduled trip to Clearwater. The morning of the scheduled tour, it was cool, overcast and windy. I called Fin who said that he had availability the next day, and that we could/should reschedule. That was the start of the positive experience -- I feel like most places would have taken your money and run without allowing a reschedule, but Fin was very understanding and accommodating.

The day we actually went for the tour it was still a little cool (but much warmer and clearer than the previous day). Just in case though, Fin brought along an extra long-sleeved shirt for me in case I got cold while we were out on the water. My husband and I had never gone jet skiing before, so Fin made sure to give us clear instructions and help at first, but let us have free range to ride as we saw fit once we eventually got to the open water. We also got to switch off so my husband drove for about half of the tour and I drove for the other half.

During the tour Fin told us a little about Clearwater, pointed out some celebrity houses, and showed us some local wildlife -- we even got to see a pod of dolphins very up close (which was amazing!) One more thing to add is that Fin mentioned he is a Coast Guard veteran -- so on top of having a great time and getting great personalized attention, I also felt entirely safe in the off chance something went wrong.

I really can't say enough good things about our experience with Fin. If you are in Clearwater and looking to jet ski or enjoy any other water sports, this is the local guy to see!

Amazing value. My son and I rode 1 jet ski and had an absolutely amazing time. There are so many coves and inlets that you need a tour guide for this area and you will not be disappointed with Fin. Fin will customize your tour based on what you are wanting to see and do. We were hoping to see dolphins on our tour and Fin didn't give up until we found some. We stopped at an amazing beach and collected shells and toured all around Clearwater beach. An all around great time. Thanks Fin!

My husband and I visited Clearwater and decided to try a tour with Fin. We had never been on a ski before, and Fin certainly gives you great instruction beforehand and checks in during ride so that you are comfortable. We did the 3-hour tour and it flew by!! We had the best day!!!! You will not have any other "dolphin encounter" on Clearwater even close to the one you will have with Fin!! Dolphins played all around our ski! It was amazing! We took a Hollywood tour of local homes!
Very cool. We stopped at a private beach to collect gorgeous shells and Fin prepped them for our trip home for us the next day by cleaning them with bleach so they would not smell!!! Now that is going the extra mile...Fin is just a great guy in general and super funny. All ages will enjoy a day with Mr. Fin. We actually wanted to go back out. We will for sure be back our next visit to Clearwater!

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.
