90-MINUTE GUIDED JETSKI TOUR FROM PHILIPSBURG
No license needed !
All riders must sign a waiver prior to participating.
After a briefing, navigate your personal watercraft in group formation outside Great Bay (Philipsburg). Enjoy sightseeing along the coastal areas of Little Bay, Cay Bay, Indigo Bay, Pelican Key and Simpson Bay plus a tour of the Simpson Bay lagoon, with vistas of both Dutch and French St. Maarten. Attractions in that area are the mangroves, the mansions of the rich & famous in the Low Lands, and the various marinas with mega yachts. Round off with a hop-over to popular Airport Beach with the famous, spectacular overhead jet landings.
Participants ride their own jet ski and – for safety reasons – everyone will stay around the tour guide at all times.
There are areas where speed is limited, e.g. around the mega yachts in the lagoon AND when passing through the Simpson Bay drawbridge.
Other stretches of the trip go through open sea. Then the guests are allowed to go full throttle.
