Personal Watercraft


Personal Watercraft (PWC) or jet skis, as they are commonly known, are versatile, fun and exhilarating. If you want to buzz around the coast or local reservoirs then a Personal Watercraft could be for you.

Delivering speed and fast acceleration, a PWC will give you a real adrenaline rush and guarantees a day full of excitement. Getting started and out on the water for the first time is easy and not too costly. Be aware of local harbour regulations and always check them out before taking to the water!

Sum it up

Personal Watercraft are about speed, thrills and excitement, all of which can be delivered at the turn of a key. They are easy to use, quick to learn and very mobile.
