Super fun family day

Larry was so great and even allowed us to add another Jet ski at the last minute. He filled the gas tanks and delivered them right to our lake, put them in and gave us wonderful instruction. We WILL definitely use Jet Ski Madison again!!

Definitely recommend

Owner was down to earth and friendly. Rented the supercharged jet ski for 2 hours. It seemed new and in good condition. Full tank of gas. Had a great time and will definitely return as a customer when I'm in the area. Would definitely recommend to anyone. It was the highlight of my 4th of July.

These guys are just awesome. We arrived on time and they had us in the water as soon as they could. Couldn't be happier and the price was more than reasonable for flying around a lake at 40+ mph.

High quality

We had a great time with Jet Ski Madison! Larry provided one on one service and thoroughly explained everything to us before we started our adventure. He helped us get our personal items stored properly in the Jet Ski and made sure all of our questions were answered. This was a high quality experience from beginning to end!
