Jet Ski Tours on Fuerteventura
What Is a Jet Ski?
Most have seen a Jet Ski before. However, few people know that the name “Jet Ski” is a trademark secured by Kawasaki. However, over time the name Jet Ski has become colloquially used for the “jet boat”. Jet Ski is available for sitting and standing driving. But only the variant with the seat is used for the Jet Ski tours for holiday makers on Fuerteventura. It can accommodate up to three people. An internal propeller is driven by an internal combustion engine with up to 300 hp and generates a jet of water that drives the Jet Ski. Speeds of up to over 100 km / h can be achieved in this way. The Jet Ski does not have a brake. You can stop by taking the gas away. A strap attached to the wrist is connected to the quick stop of the Jet Ski and thus ensures that the machine is switched off immediately should you fall down.
Who Can Go on a Jet Ski on Fuerteventura?
Most important first: To take part in guided Jet Ski tours in Fuerteventura, you do not need a boat license, previous knowledge or experience. You will be instructed in detail by the water sports teams. After just a few minutes of driving, you will get used to the behavior of the fiery vehicle and you will know how to set off and stop properly.
In order to drive a Jet Ski yourself, you must be at least 16 years old and you can ride on it from 5 years. In the event that you fall off the Jet Ski, it is important that all passengers can swim. You shouldn't have any problems with your back or knees, especially with the Jet Ski Safari, the fast ride over the waves can be quite rough at times. For the sake of completeness, it should be mentioned that you must of course not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs during the tour.
Can I Hire a Jet Ski in Fuerteventura?
If you have a sports boat license, you can rent Jet Ski in Fuerteventura and explore the seas around the island on your own. But stick to the current traffic regulations. The Spanish water police are quite active and the fines are hefty. If you do not have a driver's license but would prefer to go jet skiing without a group and guide, you can also do this at the local water sports centers. In this case, rent the Jet Ski for 20 minutes or longer and drive it on the closed course. The area is marked in the sea by buoys and of course you must not leave it.
What is Parasailing
Parasailing was developed in the 1970s as an inexpensive alternative to skydiving. People quickly recognized its potential for fun and began to offer Parasailing on the beaches of popular holiday destinations as well as Fuerteventura. The chutes are a special construction and can therefore only be used for Parasailing. Flap-like openings provide the necessary buoyancy. The trained operator must be very attentive. He has to make sure that the rope, which is up to 200 meters long, does not get tangled anywhere and also keep an eye on the other boats in the area.
What Happens When Parasailing in Fuerteventura?
The boats that pull up the canopy are also custom-made nowadays. They have a platform at the stern from which you are lifted into the air and on which you land again. You put on a harness consisting of a waist belt and leg loops are strapped on. Carabineers finally connect you to the linkage on the chute. And off you go. The operator will step on the gas and this will pull you up. You then climb to an airy height of up to 100 meters. From up there you can enjoy a spectacular view of the coasts and mountains of Fuerteventura.
What Are the Requirements for Parasailing?
No previous knowledge or experience is required. In Fuerteventura, children from 5 years old can participate in Parasailing. Up to three people can fly on such a chute at the same time. Depending on the type, the total weight of these people may not exceed 200 to 240 kilograms. You shouldn't be afraid of heights either. Parasailing is very dependent on the prevailing weather conditions. Especially on Fuerteventura, the wind conditions can thwart your plans. If the wind is too strong, the operator may cancel Parasailing for safety reasons. If this happens, you can try again on another day, switch to another activity, or get your money back.
How Does the Flyboard work?
In the broadest sense the Flyboard is a jetpack that is attached to your feet and pushes you upwards with a powerful water stream. This fun device was only developed in 2011 and its triumphal march among water sports has continued unabated to this day. And it has also become extremely popular in Fuerteventura. The Flyboard is connected to a JetSki whose water jet power lifts you upwards. The Flyboard pack usually includes a hand control that you can use to regulate the water jet yourself, but in the holiday regions the guide takes care of the right intensity.
What to Consider When Flyboarding?
You can be strapped to this blasting unit from the age of 14. You will get a life jacket and helmet from the organizer. Even as a beginner, you can have a lot of fun with Flyboarding. The guides will show you how to do it and most people will get a good grip of it just after a few minutes. It is important that you keep your body tension and balance during the boost. Once you are able to stand steadily on the water jet, you can also dive headfirst into the water or even try a pirouette. In any case, you should follow the instructor’s guidance and directions; otherwise you run a risk of injury.
Banana Boat, Jet Boat and even more on Fuerteventura
What Can You Do With the Banana Boat in Fuerteventura?
What is it? It is long, narrow and filled with screeching people. It clearly is a banana boat tour on Fuerteventura. Great fun is guaranteed, especially if you try to not fall off this object. But no chance, because the guide who pulls the banana boat makes such crazy tight curves that anyone can remain seated on the banana. One thing is certain: everyone gets wet.
What Is the Crazy Jet Boat?
This amazing device is one of the most spectacular attractions on Fuerteventura. The Jet Boat is custom-made and you have put on a seat belt on it. The guide manages to do pirouettes with the jet boat, jump over the waves and even dive completely under water. It will be difficult to experience such an adrenaline rush again on another occasion.
Are There Water Sports Combination Packages - Savings Offers?
Also in Fuerteventura, it is customary to put together various water spot activities into a savings package with a price advantage. In these packs, the activities are cheaper on average than if you booked them individually. In Morro Jable, for example, you can save around 40 euros for two people if you book package 1. This includes a 1 hour JetSki tour, 10 minutes each in the crazy sofa and a ride in the crazy jet boat. Take a look at our offers, you will surely find the right combination for you.
Where Is Water Sports Available in Fuerteventura?
You will find water sports providers on the beach of every major tourist destination in Fuerteventura. In the north of the island, for example, you can take JetSki tours in Corralejo. And in the middle part there are providers for JetSki Safaris in Caleta de Fuste. Different activities on the water are offered in Costa Calma and in Morro Jable on the Jandía peninsula, in the south of Fuerteventura. In addition to Jet Ski tours, this location also includes Parasailing and flyboarding.
What Should You Have With You For Water Sports Activities?
- Sunscreen: Please apply sunscreen with a high sun protection factor before and during sea activities. The sun intensity in the Canaries is higher than in Central Europe and therefore more dangerous.
- Swimwear and spare clothes: You will definitely get wet. So please pack your swimwear and changing clothes.
- Bath sheets: Towels are essential for rubbing dry. But even if you plan to spend some time on the beach after the water sports experience, you can use it as a pad.
What Else Is There to Consider?
You can get life jackets from the operator for all water sports activities. Please do not wear sunglasses during the activities. Not only is it annoying if you lose it, but marine pollution is also a problem with this. The same applies to cameras and cell phones. For your own safety and for environmental reasons, you will be asked to keep your belongings in one of the lockers. If you have heart or lung problems or during pregnancy, we advise not to participate in these water sports activities.
You can find this and other information about costs and which services are included and which not in the detailed descriptions of the activities under the points “Please note!” and “Services & Prices”.
