    For this experience, our partners are taking extra measures to help prevent any potential spread of COVID-19. These measures include continuing to practice social distancing in order to maintain safety for each guest and staff member. To remain most effective, their office will be closed to the public and they will be conducting check ins/outs outside of the office. Our partners will collect guest belongings in bins outside and safely store them in their office. Each staff member will additionally have their temperature taken prior to each shift and will be required to wear masks on land. Our partners highly encourage guests to wear face masks, as well. As jet skiing inherently follows social distancing, they will continue to offer tours around New York. Following each tour, the jet skis will be wiped down and disinfected before the next tour begins. These Covid-19 safety measures are subject to change.

    Do I need experience driving a jet ski?

    No! Jet skis are very easy to operate, and your guide/instructor will spend a few minutes at the beginning of the tour to go over safety precautions and operation tips.

    How many people can ride one jet ski?
    1 or 2 people are allowed on each jet ski (depending on purchase option selected). However, each jet ski has a combined weight limit of 350 pounds. 
    If two people go on a jet ski, are we allowed to switch drivers?
    Yes! Both participants are allowed to drive the jet ski provided they are both over 18 years old with valid form of ID. You may switch at any point during the tour.
    What type of watercraft will we use?

    For this tour, you will be riding/driving a Yamaha V1's and V1 Sports. These personal watercrafts (PWCs) are commonly referred to as Jet Skis.

    Is there a better time of day to go on a tour?
    Tour conditions vary greatly depending on the time of day due to the amount of boat traffic on the water. Mornings are generally the calmest conditions. Afternoon tours give you a true sense of how busy and bustling the NYC waterways can be and that provides its own thrill. Late afternoons are usually pretty magical in terms of scenery.
    Is this experience weather dependent?
    Yes. This experience can be subject to rain and wind conditions. Please always check with the experience provider prior to your tour with any concerns regarding weather.
