If you’ve never driven a jet ski before, not to worry. You get a mini lesson before the tour heads out. It’s so easy to drive them! You will wear a personal flotation device, and your guide will keep an eye on you and the rest of the group. Key West jet ski tours come with the option to drive a two-seater, so you can have a passenger.
The tours meet at one of two areas. One is on the south side of Key West, from the Casa Marina area. The other is from Old Town, near Mallory Square. Your Key West jet ski tour guide will lead you and the rest of the group out of Key West harbor or if you leave from the south side, across the south side of the island, going west. You will proceed into the backcountry, going north, then east along the north side of Key West. The back country is where it’s at, because there are lots of places to explore back here, including some old submarine pits that were never actually used. Most Key West jet ski tours take their group to see the sub pits, as they’re called.
Then it’s back around the east side of the island and across the south. This is where waves might get bigger, on the ocean side. But sometimes that’s what makes an Key West jet ski tour exciting: jumping the waves! In fact, you’ll see lots of jet ski riders waiting for boats passing through the harbor, so they can drive across their wakes and jump up. We told you, this is not your average Key West Tour!
