Southern Wave Snorkeling Adventures SCAM ON TOURIST SCAM, threaten, charges false, attacks tourist South Padre Island, Texas
Our trip was 7/8-7-14 of 2013. We had a beautiful vacation up until we were scammed by the people of Southern Wave rentals. To begin we rented a paddle boat for 21.00 and enjoyed it. Then I decided I wanted to Jet Sji for 30 minutes and the price was $75.00. This is unusal but they said they were closing soon and I thought I was given a break. Well as I boarded the JET SKI I was told to watch my leg for the nick on the boat and to be back in 30 minutes and if I was not we would be automatically charged another $75.00. Well they did not know I had a water proof watch and returned in 28 minutes. I pulled in and was verbally assaulted by the same "nice" guy who said. "I F%$# told you I would come get you!" BTW he never said that. I turned the jet ski off immediately and heard his friend state "Women Drivers"... I was amazed... As he pulled me in he then said.. " You wrecked my machine and owe me $350. [continued below]....
We signed knowing we could dispute the charge. Two bartenders and one waitress told us they do this to tourist (women) all the time and told us to fight it.
2 hours later while watching the fireworks on the island we were approached by a Hispanic male that said... "I heard your going to disoute the charges and if you do we will place in you jail right now." UNREAL they have shown who they are. I also have testimony of 4 other couples this company has done this to.
THE ISLAND IS BEAUTIFUL BUT STAY AWAY FROM SOUTHERN WAVES TO THE LEFT OF LAGUNA BOBS AND THE RIGHT OF LOUIES BACKYARD, THEY WILL SCAM YOU OUT OF HUNDREDS.
BTW: we are fighting the charges.
