Zoom up and down the Miami coastline in style on one of these awesome guided jet ski tours or freestyle rentals.
Miami is one of those cities where image counts for a lot. The city is packed with photogenic locales from the Art Deco buildings lining Miami Beach to the murals of Wynwood. And while the waterfront is often packed with active people looking to buff up, it’s on the water where the real adrenaline-infused style can be triggered. There are dozens of Miami jet ski rentals and guided jet skiing experiences. Here are five of the best.
Miami Guided Group Jet Skiing
Want to feel the raw power and speed of a jet ski in Miami as you bounce over the waves? This tour is designed to let participants loose in a large, designated area so that you can feel the thrill of really opening up. Rides of thirty minutes or one hour are available and all users are supervised by fully trained guides. Please note that all people born after 1987 must complete a mandatory jet ski exam prior to riding for a small additional fee (roughly $3) at the rental center. From $99 per person.
Miami Beach Jet Ski Rentals
Another great jet ski rental option is located on Miami’s South Beach, where you’ll get to explore an open riding area for anywhere between an hour and half a day. This longer option is a great shout for anybody looking to hangout on the beach and jump on the jet ski for a ride anytime the adrenaline levels ebb a little low. All drivers must be 18 years or older to rent. This location is generally open seven days a week. From $140 per person.
Jet Ski Rental on Biscayne Bay with Boat Ride
Biscayne Bay is south of Miami, where jet ski experiences can benefit from more open space. Start out your rental time getting to grips with operating the machines, before following your instructor over the waves to the designated riding zone. Once in situ, you can open up the throttle and reach maximum speed, with the city skyscrapers as your backdrop and stunning views of the coastline. One- or two-person jet skis are available. From $168 per person.
Miami 1-Hour Jet Ski City Tour
Another fun form of jet skiing in Miami is the guided tour, where you don’t have to be confined to a designated zone and can explore many of the city’s different faces. Using that freedom, your guide will lead your over the bay past downtown Miami and Star Island, which is loaded with mansions owned by the likes of Sly Stallone and Gloria Estefan. There’ll also be a brief stop at Monument Island. You’ll have an opportunity to ride fast and get some speed up and, if you’re lucky, may even get close to some curious dolphins. From $225 per person.
Miami Jet Ski Rental with Pontoon Ride
For anybody looking to combine experiences in Miami, jet skiing and a boat cruise are both included in this two-hour activity. Starting out at Miami Beach, the pontoon leads south towards a lagoon, where you can look out for manatees and dolphins. Then hop onto a jet ski, with Miami away in the distance, as you spend an hour exploring parts of Biscayne Bay. As with all tours on this list, the Florida Boaters Safety Card is a necessity for anybody born after 1987, but can be applied for on the day before you climb aboard your jet ski. From $250 per person.
