Shane J: “This place was fabulous! We originally wanted to get our 15-year-olds on some jet skis with us, but the owner of the establishment very tactfully helped us understand the safety risks of what we were trying to do. After seeing our disappointment, he offered us a free 30-minute session of kayaking FREE for BOTH of our boys. We graciously accepted the offer, and we rented a jet ski for the same 30-minute session. It worked out GREAT! The boys absolutely loved it, and I was still able to enjoy the jet ski I had been hoping to ride. It wasn’t what we originally planned, but it actually worked out better for all of us. We will be returning here again the next time we visit Put-in-Bay. This was our second time using their services, and both times have been wonderful! I’d highly recommend them.”

Siva G: “Bob & staff are really friendly people. We were a group of 5 and hired 3 Wave runners. We had a really good time, the staff was very friendly and they guided safety instructions very patiently. Bob’s store is even cheaper compared to other rental services in the island. I would definitely recommend this rental.”

Ruth R: “We were a group of 5 and had a great experience with Put-in-Bay Watercraft Rentals. Bob was great with us. He was very accommodating and made sure we were happy with our skis. He made us laugh the entire time during our interaction with him. I highly recommend this place which is affordable and enjoyable. I will definitely go to this place when I visit Put-in-Bay again.”
