Boat ride over was nice and relaxing. Once you get to the skis, it's a wild ride... in a good way. This was my wife's first time ever going out, and the laid back attitude of the crew was very calming. Perfect for both experienced riders or first timers because the free ride time allows you to be as cautious or as daring as you want to be (within the rules of course). Would definitely do this again.

An incredible tour in the bay of Miami, view of Miami Skyline, the islands, and Miami River... We even saw dolphins in the bay !!! The boat was very spacious and modern and the Capitaine Charlie was very nice with a lot of explanations! A great experience that I recommend to all those who want to mark their stay! Thanks again to our captain Charlie!

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!! The boat was beautiful and super clean, I highly recommand to book with 1 life boat rental! The captain will do anything for you to enjoy your experience! The communication with Charles was super easy and useful! I loved this tour and will definitly book again!!! We even saw dolphins and DJ Khaled!!!!

No surprise, 100 usd expected fee in addition to the reservation. We knew about it, no worries. The jets are powerful, short walk to get to the site. Nice staff

Guy who helps us with the waivers and license was an excellent worker. Very patient. The jetskis were lit!!! All in all a great activity
