Until the personal watercraft was invented, mankind's only hope for summer fun involved hitting candied hams with tree branches. Celebrate water invention with today's Groupon at Great White Water Sports, launching from Virginia Beach. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get a 30-minute jet-ski ride for up to two people (up to a $99 value).
- For $75, you get a 45-minute jet-ski dolphin tour for up to two people (up to a $150 value).
Great White Water Sports, which has been favorably mentioned in USA Today, unveils the calm waters of Chesapeake Bay for aqueous adventurers to splash about on modern jet skis. Open-water voyagers should arrive 15 to 20 minutes before the scheduled launch time to take a basic course in rider safety and an advanced course in organic chemistry. Visitors then don life jackets and mount their waterborne steeds to cruise around freestyle and whomp waves for an exhilarating half hour. Jet skiers can also opt for the guided dolphin tour that provides an up-close view of the marine mammal doing typical dolphin things, such as squeaking and solving coral Rubik’s Cubes.
Great White Water Sports' first aid–equipped staff takes plenty of precautions to ensure a safe journey by monitoring rental activity both on shore and afloat. Check out the schedule for a full listing of departure times.
Great White Water Sports
Great White Water Sports creates a harmony with the gentle crash of waves, the powerful growls of jet skis, and the excited yelps of families as they launch a variety of jet-ski rentals right from the sands of Chesapeake Bay. Ranked second on the Norfolk activity list by TripAdvisor, and backed by favorable attention from USA Today, their lifeguard-trained team also saddles up jet skis in waters warmer than the Atlantic and with smaller waves. Their jet skis are not equipped with any speed-restriction devices, allowing guests to rev up their engines and feel the wind hit their faces as they send wake waves rolling shoreward.
