What should I wear on a jet ski?

Comfort and security are the only important thing to remember when dressing for a jet ski ride. You’ll want a bathing suit or waterproof clothing that will stay secure while you’re ripping waves. A traditional bathing suit should be fine in the summer and fall, while a wet suit or something with more coverage might be more comfortable in the spring while the water is still a little chilly. You will also be required to wear a life jacket during your ride. And, while it’s not required, we always recommend plenty of sunscreen!

A jet ski isn’t for me—what other water activities are available?

Other readily available watersports available on the island include kayak and stand up paddle board rentals, fishing charters, and pontoon boat rentals—to name a few. You can also enjoy more relaxing beach activities like shelling for seashells along the coastline, beach fishing, a bike rental, and a scenic golf cart ride along the coast.
