Wonderful staff that goes above and beyond their job description. The owner and the staff showed compassion and support for one of our group members who got seasick. The employees all went out of their way to help our group member recover. There are still kind caring people in the world! The trip was great! Thank you to everyone involved!

My boyfriend and I went on jet skis for the first time through this company; Joelle and her assistant are the best— seriously, give them a raise! We had such a blast, felt safe and informed the entire time, saw such amazing views, and will recommend this trip to all of our friends (and strangers, too!). Thanks again for providing such a lovely evening— hope to be back soon!

Frequently Asked Questions about Jet Ski NYC

Where do I meet for the tour?
Meet at Liberty Landing Marina. Parking is available on-site. Come down “D” dock and Sea the City is at the end of the dock by the white house with the large red “fuel” sign.

What is the minimum age to go on a jet ski tour?
The minimum age to operate a jet ski is 18 years old. You must be 16 or older to ride along with your parent or legal guardian.

Do I need jet ski experience to enjoy the tour?
No. Jet skis are very simple to operate and comfortable to drive. Our licensed instructors give a short safety briefing before we depart and are always close by while out on the water. The first few minutes are within a no wake zone (5 mph speed limit) where you will get the feel of it before you start to accelerate out in the open water.

Is there a place for customers to change before the tour?
Yes. The marina has facilities to change or use the restroom.

Are lockers available or is there a place to keep our belongings?
Yes. We provide a free and secure space to lock up your belongings. You DO NOT need to provide your own lock.

Will the tour run in the rain?
Rain is not the only weather that can prevent us from being able to take a tour out. Weather and water conditions can be dangerous even if it appears to be a beautiful day out. If the weather or water conditions are unsafe we will reschedule your tour. We do not always know in advance, so please if you are concerned about the conditions give us a call and ask.

Is there a tour guide?
Yes. We provide only guided tours. Our licensed guides are on their own jet ski, while you drive another. A tour consists of a group of several jet skis which stay within a reasonable distance to the guide.

How many people can ride a jet ski?
We will allow 1 or 2 people on one jet ski, provided the combined weight of the riders is under 350 pounds, although it is easier to maneuver with one person on a jet ski.

Can we switch riders during the tour?
If both individuals are 18 years of age or older, yes.

What should I wear?
We highly recommend wearing your bathing suit. During the colder months, we offer complimentary wetsuits and water boots available for anyone that would like them.

Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes. It is a requirement that all individuals participating sign a waiver. A waiver will be emailed to each participant for electronic signature prior to your tour.

Is there a weight limit for the jet skis?
Yes. The combined weight of riders must not exceed 350 lbs.

How fast can I go on a jet ski?
Jet skis can get up to 55 mph. We only ask you stay within sight of your tour guide.

Do I need to wear a life vest?
Yes. Both tour operators and guests must wear life vests.

What if I fall off the jet ski?
If you should fall off, the emergency cut off switch will disable the PWC and your life vest will keep you afloat while you reboard from the rear of the jet ski.
