FAST! Our skis are capable of speeds up to 55 mph depending on rider(s) weight and water conditions. We only operate new 2019 YAMAHA VXs. New for this year, the High Output TR1 3 Cylinder 4-stroke engine with 120 HP (not available on older models). Our jet skis do NOT have speed limiting governors as some of the “other guys” in the area. We guarantee our skis are the fastest jet skis available to rent in Wilmington, North Carolina.
All of our jet skis will accommodate three riders and have a weight limit of 400 lbs. For the most comfortable experience, we recommend one rider per ski. No more than two adult riders per ski, or two adults and a small child. Each ski rented is for that rider, or couple. No switching or sharing with other parties allowed.
Rental is for single rider. Additional rider is $10.
Absolutely! We make sure you are confident in riding, understanding the area, and safely operating the ski before sending you out. We explain every aspect of operation and safety and answer any and all questions you may have.
