If you’re looking to add some unforgettable fun to your next Fort Lauderdale getaway, jet skiing is sure not to disappoint. Not only is it an exciting adventure, jet skiing is also a healthy activity for you and your family, providing a great workout and time out on the water. If you’re interested in making a jet ski rental part of your next getaway, our team at Atlantic Beach Clubs II has put together a guide to help you prepare.
Outfit Yourself with Safety in MindWith all watersports, safety should be your number one priority. A life vest is required to ride our jet skis, but our team also recommends you dress in a swimsuit or clothing that is easy to swim in and easy to see in case an accidental fall occurs. This way, you are prepared to make swimming to safety both simple and smooth. And please, don’t forget sun protection! Apply and reapply sunscreen to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun’s rays.
Be a Responsible DriverWhen you rent a jet ski and head out on the open seas, it can be tempting to speed off into uncharted waters. But it’s important to resist that urge, as it may lead to collisions with other water vehicles. Also, it’s a good idea to keep your speed at around ten miles per hour (or less) when you first take off. As you get into deeper waters, make sure that you accelerate slowly, and always keep your distance from other water vehicles.
It’s important to know the local rules regarding age and speed limits. In Florida, you must be 14 years of age or older to drive a jet ski, although passengers can be any age. Additionally, if you were born after January 1, 1988, you must have a valid boater’s license to operate and drive a jet ski. You can obtain a lifetime boater’s license at PWC Safety School, or grab yourself a temporary one-year license from our team!
At Atlantic Beach Club, we believe that if you prepare with safety in mind, brush up on how to use a jet ski correctly, and educate yourself about the local laws of the water, you’ll find yourself enjoying a perfect day jetting around beautiful Fort Lauderdale without a care in the world.
