“Guides Have to Relax”
Reviewed 4 August 2011

We have been to 3 or 4 different resorts that had wave runners to rent in the Bahamas, the Outer Banks, and Puerto Rico and this by far was the worst.

The machines were new and relatively fast. The problem was the guides, or should I say guards. These guys were like the gestapo, they were so concerned about their machines, and probably their insurance premiums, that they literally took the fun out of the experience. I am a middle aged father of two that was there with my wife and 16 year old daughter and I thought it was boring. I thought taking a test on water safety was ok, but the 2-3 guards that watch over you like a hawk go way beyond keeping things safe. I would not recommend this company for the wave runner rentals in Ocean City.

Even though this post is an old post we still wanted to respond to this review. I am sorry to hear about your bad experience with the guides that day. The guides are not out there to take the fun away from any of our customers but there is a fine line between being to strict and not being strict enough. Our guides are trained by not only our mangers but also the DNR (police on the water). The reason they have to be strict is because 1.) the safety of our customers is very important and 2.) the safety of our equipment. There may be times when the guides get to strict but you have to put yourself in their shoes as well. They are in charge of at least 10 customers and 10 Jetskis and they do not want to see anybody get injured in anyway. There are other rentals who are much more relaxed but they also have a bad safety record. Now when you rent jetskis in Mexico, Bahamas, Porto Rico etc, they do not have guides because it is not a law to have them. Here in Ocean City, MD we HAVE to have the guides out there with our customers since it is the law. Since this post was in 2011, we have since then fine tuned our training of our guides and have improved in this area.
