Surfing, waterskiing and scuba diving are exhilarating in their own ways. However, if you’ve never had a chance to zip across the water on a jet ski, you should try at least once.

Here are some destinations perfect for escaping the cold and getting on a jet ski.


Hop on a jet ski and zip across the Caribbean Sea. From Montego Bay to Negril, there are plenty of sites for an adventure in Jamaica. Many operators are in proximity to popular resorts.

There are many chances to zip across the water at top speed here. The Private Jet Ski Adventure at Tropical Bliss Beach includes a lesson for newbies, ample time to jet ski and a round-trip transfer from your hotel or Airbnb.


The “land of the flying fish” invites people to rent “Waverunners.” You’ll find rental companies on the major beaches and some of the coves. During the peak period, expect to pay between $50 – $55 for 30 minutes. When out in the water, be sure to keep an eye out for swimmers and other watercraft.

There’s a four-hour tour that brings you in contact with some of the island’s most important spots. Zip past Bridgetown, Sandy Lane Beach and Mullins Beach with a seasoned guide.


Whether you’re on the mainland or the islands, Spain is a good destination for water adventures.

Zip past the beautiful Palma Cathedral in Mallorca. If you’re in Barcelona, some of the beaches offer watersports. If you’re looking to party on the water in Ibiza, rent a jet ski.

Steer clear of swimming areas and regatta zones. Depending on the area in Spain, you’ll need to be a considerable distance away from the shore before you’re allowed to pick up speed.

St. Lucia

There’s no better way to admire the island nicknamed “Helen of the West.” Velocity Powersports offers two jet ski excursions in St. Lucia. You’ll be able to see the Pitons, Pigeon Island and Rat Island. They caters to singles, couples and groups of friends.

When you’re finished zipping and gliding, enjoy a relaxing swim in the gentle waters.

St. Martin

This Dutch and French island affords the option of renting your own jet ski or booking a jet ski tour. In Philipsburg, try Big Foot Jetski Rental and Tours or St. Maarten Jetski Tours. In Simpson Bay, Roxxy Watersport not only offers jetsking, but kayak and paddle board rentals.

If you’re in the Orient Beach area, book a fun session with Bikini Watersport. Other activities offered by the company are flyboarding, parasailing, tubing and snorkeling. If you decide to do something more lowkey, try a boat charter.
