    Feel the rush of wind in your hair and the spray of the sea as you take in New York City in a whole new way!

    You will meet your certified instructor and guide at the Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City, a quick 10-minute ferry ride from lower Manhattan (ferry fare not included). Once there, you will be provided with a wet suit, life vest, and water shoes. You'll suit up and climb aboard your very own personal watercraft!

    For this tour, you will be driving a Yamaha VP1 or VP1 Sport watercraft, commonly referred to as a jet ski. Though each jet ski can seat up to two participants, you may choose the option to drive alone or to bring along a passenger, provided your combined weight does not exceed 350 pounds. After a short safety briefing and basic training, you will head out onto the bustling New York City waterways to see the sights!

    Along the way, your guide will take photos for you, provide interesting facts, and help you navigate the waterways. Want a bit of a thrill? You are free to test the limits of your jet ski, which can hit speeds of up to 55 MPH. Just make sure you are within eyesight of your guide.

    For this adventure tour, you may choose between two routes:

    • 1-Hour Lower Manhattan Tour: Explore the most famous sights in New York Harbor. Departing from the marina, you will cruise past Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Freedom Tower, and more! This will be an approximately 1-hour journey.
    • 2.5-Hour Manhattan Tour: Get the full New York experience as you journey around the entire island of Manhattan. You will see the Freedom Tower, The Intrepid Aircraft Carrier & Sea Museum, 79th Street Boat Basin, the GW Bridge, Yankee Stadium, The United Nations, the Brooklyn Bridge, and so much more! This will be an approximately 2.5-hour adventure.

    Do I need experience driving a jet ski?

    No! Jet skis are very easy to operate, and your guide/instructor will spend a few minutes at the beginning of the tour to go over safety precautions and operation tips.

    How many people can ride one jet ski?
    1 or 2 people are allowed on each jet ski (depending on purchase option selected). However, each jet ski has a combined weight limit of 350 pounds. 
    If two people go on a jet ski, are we allowed to switch drivers?
    Yes! Both participants are allowed to drive the jet ski provided they are both over 18 years old with valid form of ID. You may switch at any point during the tour.
    What type of watercraft will we use?

    For this tour, you will be riding/driving a Yamaha V1's and V1 Sports. These personal watercrafts (PWCs) are commonly referred to as Jet Skis.

    Is there a better time of day to go on a tour?
    Tour conditions vary greatly depending on the time of day due to the amount of boat traffic on the water. Mornings are generally the calmest conditions. Afternoon tours give you a true sense of how busy and bustling the NYC waterways can be and that provides its own thrill. Late afternoons are usually pretty magical in terms of scenery.
    Is this experience weather dependent?
    Yes. This experience can be subject to rain and wind conditions. Please always check with the experience provider prior to your tour with any concerns regarding weather.
    This experience has a customer rating of 5

    it was awesome!!!!!!!!!
    Pretty intense! Watch the wake from the big barges!
    Incredible way to see New York City from a different perspective. Well worth the cost for the 1 hour tour. No experience riding jet skis is necessary. The guides are great and I felt comfortable and safe the entire time. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that hasn’t been to NY before or wants to try something different!
    I bought this gift as a surprise anniversary gift for my husband (and myself). It was awesome!!! Getting used to the waves and speed of the jet ski was a bit scary at first but by the end it was so exhilarating I didn’t want to stop!! It was such a rush to fly across the water! Brooke was an awesome tour guide, she was friendly and professional and made me feel safe... and she took great pics! I would highly recommend to any thrill seekers and to those who are looking for something new and fun.
    one of the three most exciting adventure experiences i've had in my entire life.
    Awesome experience. Our guides (Tina and Irene) were fantastic!
