RYA PWC (Jet Ski) Taster Experience

An experience to try your hand at riding a PWC (jet ski).


£145 including all kit

90 minutes

Passengers welcome for £35

Difficulty: Beginners to experienced

Personal Watercraft (PWC’s) or Jet Skis, as they are commonly known, are versatile, fun and an affordable way to get out on the water.

This taster experience gives you the opportunity to experience riding a ski either riding solo or sharing with a friend.

We will teach the basics of riding a personal watercraft in the shelter of the marina before heading out into the bay to enjoy a ride along the coastline giving plenty of opportunities to put into practise everything you have learnt.

Try before you buy. With an RYA instructor by your side we can answer all of your questions.

£145 for a solo rider.  £35 extra for a passenger.

Whats the minimum age?

Suitable for over 18s only at the controls.  Over 14 are welcome as a passenger.

What should I wear?

It’s a good idea to dress warm.  We would encourage a wetsuit and we have some to borrow should you not have any.  We will provide you with a buoyancy aid too.

If I enjoy it, is there other training I can do?

Absolutely.  If you do look to buy your own ski we run an RYA PWC course which will equip you with all the required knowledge to head out on the water safety and confidently.

This trip is not suitable for:

  • Pregnant women
  • People with a history of back, neck or bone conditions or injuries
  • Those suffering conditions resulting in decreased bone strength
  • Anyone who is unable to effectively remount the ski from the water
  • Anyone who is unable to follow instructions
  • Anyone who is unable to swim
