    I had never been on a jetski so I was incredibly nervous. I did not go as fast as others on the tour but I enjoyed the experience. I wouldn’t exactly call it a tour though. We were given basic instructions for about 5 minutes and a quick road map of what we would see then everyone took off. A guide was in the front of the group while another was in the back but everyone did their own thing.

    This was a one of a kind experience but I will say the weight limit is strictly enforced, they would not allow my friend to ride and she was only 6 lbs over the limit. Other than that I enjoyed the trail and ride, I’d also advise to wear sunscreen and I got my very first sunburn! Lol

My husband and I enjoyed our ATV tour. It had been raining, so we had a nice muddy ride. Make sure your wear clothes and shoes that you do not mind getting dirty. We had mud spatters and had to go back to our room to change before doing anymore sight seeing. :-) Omar was a wonderful guide, he has a love for animals and was informative about the farm. Omar was like a long time friend. Glad we booked this tour.
