Owner description: Power Up Watersports has your newest and greatest water toy called the "FlyBoard". The FlyBoard is an innovative way for you to hover above the water like Iron Man and gives you the ability to dive in and out of the water like a dolphin. Taking anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes to get the hang of, the FlyBoard is for all enthusiasts alike.We also offer non-motorized activities such as kayaks & paddleboards. If your looking for a fun day out on the water you can rent one of our brand new pontoon boats or waverunners! Our pontoon boats are even capable of playing songs right off your phone!

We went with a Groupon and were late for.our appointment but the staff was super nice and not busy so they were extra special in their care of us. We did the water trikes--difficult and very hot at 11am but we wanted a NEW experience and that was what we got! Even grandmother pedaled once!!We took turns with the children and they enjoyed it. Didn't use the full hour but enjoyed it nonetheless.

We were so impressed with Power Up Watersports! It was our first trip to Destin and everything was new and unfamiliar. We stopped by late one afternoon looking to rent kayaks. They suggested that we would enjoy an early morning kayaking trip for the beauty and ease of rowing in the current. That showed us that they were more concerned about our needs and experience than just making money. Their entire staff were so nice and friendly and went out of their way to make us newbies feel comfortable! We highly recommend them to meet all your water needs and we will definitely return next year!

We had family in town for a visit and decided to spend the day on the water - fishing and checking out Crab Island. Power Up Watersports had a pontoon boat available so we were in luck. The boat was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the battery was dead so we were a little delayed in our departure (it only took 15 minutes or so for the staff to replace the battery), then we had four hours for a very reasonable price (all day rental is also available). I haven't operated a boat in quite some time so they provided some quick "Boating 101" tips. If you want some fun on the water, check out Power Up Watersports for boats, jet ski and more. Highly recommend.

We bought a groupon for the aqua trikes. I bought one thinking myself, my teen daughter and young daughter would fit as that is what description said. First we did not fit so we had to shuffle with a friend to get everyone on. The bikes were so hard to peddle..my older daughter had a full blown asthma attack and started crying. Not even on the bikes 10 minutes when we had to try turning around to return. Even got stuck. I have asked Groupon for a refund as we never really used the bike and it was terrible. Your staff however was very nice.

Beth, We're so sorry you had such a terrible experience on the aquatrikes. I hope that Groupon was able to refund your money and if not you are always welcome, as with any groupon, to use that credit towards renting another piece of equipment from us. Thank you for your review though! Please come see us at our new location this year, 214 Hwy 98 in Destin!

My two teens did the fly boarding with power up and really enjoyed it. They received great instruction and support from Max while we watched from the dock. Another staff member visited with us and answered our questions while we watched the kids fly board. After their session we decided to stick around and rented a few paddle boards for an hour. The staff was helpful without being hovering, very polite and a quality establishment.
