YOU WANT TO BE COMFORTABLE!

All riders must dress appropriate for varying weather conditions:

WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND EVERYONE TO WEAR SOMETHING TO OR BELOW THE KNEE.

NOT BIKINI BOTTOMS!

IS IT A SLOW PACE RIDE?

GENERALLY - NO! HOWEVER, ALL DRIVERS MUST RIDE AT THE PACE THAT THE GUIDE SETS!

This pace is determined by factors including but not limited to:

  • Rider capabilities within the tour group.
  • Weather
  • Boat Traffic
  • Rider comprehension and application of the rules and guidelines clearly stated before departure.

IF YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT HOW FAST OR SLOW YOUR RIDE WILL BE - WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOOKING A JET SKI EXCURSION
