Zoom Around Old San Juan on a Jet Ski

There are different ways to experience Old San Juan … like walking tour, on bikes or on the Segway. But if you are looking for a more exciting (and wetter) way to see Old San Juan, you can get a tour of the 500-year old city from a different angle — on a Jet Ski! Wow Surf and Watersports and Aquatica offers Jet Ski Tours that are wet and wild, and combines some history and a lot of fun.

San Juan Water Tours

What to expect

Both of these tours are based out of the San Juan Marina (Club Nautico). You sign waivers, meet your fellow tour mates and guide, then get your life jackets and Jet Skis. You get a quick course in how to drive the jet ski and what the guides hand signals will mean. Then , they start your engine and you are off!

We have found driving a jet ski to is easy, but it does take a little practice until you get the feel for it in the changing water conditions. At first, waves were a bit intimidating. But, after a bit, they became fun to ski over! There are areas of smooth waters deep in the bay that you can really get some speed!

San Juan Water Tours

We did a tour that went to three different areas around the San Juan Bay. Each tour may be different, but they all will stop near various local and historic sites in the area possibly including — the marinas in the bay, the San Juan Convention Center, the Puerto Rico capitol building, the Hato Rey area, the Old San Juan City Wall, the Old San Juan Gate, the Bacardi Factory, El Morro and Fortaleza. Your guide will give you some information about each of the sites you visit, and they always set you up for some cool,fun photos at these spots. These historic sites are beautiful from the water. And while the historical information is interesting and all, we all know why you are really there … to zoom around on the jet ski! You will have plenty of time to zoom!

Make sure you have adequate protection from the sun. I recommend a rash guard shirt to keep the sun off your back and arms. We usually use waterproof sport sunscreen on our faces, but it still ran down into our eyes and stung on jet ski tours. I am unsure how to avoid that problem because the sun on the water will burn your face quickly, and a hat will fly off in the wind/water. We wore sunglasses with a safety strap, which kept some of the water out of our eyes. I was glad to have them — lots of water in the face on this trip!
