Makin Waves enhances beachside entertainment by providing shady respite from the sun’s rays or family-friendly sea sports to enjoy on the calm, crystalline waters of the Gulf. Beachgoers recline in rented chairs designed to handle exposure to the elements as umbrellas deflect the sun’s unwanted advances and cheesy pickup lines. Boats tow giant inflatable rafts shaped like bananas about the waterfront for roughly 20 minutes, giving up to six passengers of all sizes a spectacular view from atop the ocean and a chance to interact with the dolphins that frequent the area. Alternatively, jet skis kick up impressive wakes for an hour, dazzling crowds or splashing young submarines afraid of getting wet. Cars enjoy free parking Monday–Friday, and guests can acquire a beach locker along with their rentals to store goods best kept dry.
Located along the aquamarine shoreline of Clearwater Beach, Makin Waves supplies the ingredients for fun seaside jaunts, providing everything from beach balls to boat rentals. Beachgoers can relax in Makin Waves' reclining blue beach chairs beneath the shade of umbrellas or set out on a rental jet ski in search of dolphins or tricksters wearing fake shark fins. The shop's Australian suntan products fend off sunrays, and floating rafts allows up to six friends to relax atop deep-blue waters. Visitors may explore land and sea in a variety of other rental vehicles, such as banana boats, bicycles, and naval warships.
