Every Year, Nice New WaveRunners!
At H2O Sports you ride on state-of-the-art Yamaha VX110 Personal Watercraft in a protected area of calm, lovely Maunalua Bay. New skis are almost always safer skis, and we expand on the theme of wellbeing by having our course under the watchful eyes of US Coast Guard licensed Captains.
