FAQ

FAQ

If you want to rent a private jet-ski in Tenerife, you'll need to carry a navigation permit. This document guarantees that you will follow the rules of the road without disturbing other sailors. If you don't have such a permit, you can opt for unlicensed jet-ski excursions with an instructor. 
Jet ski rental agencies have thought of everything. Your personal belongings (clothes, valuables) will remain docked in secure storage lockers provided by the rental companies. However, we advise you to bring only the bare minimum. 
Today, there are jet ski models that can reach speeds of up to 120 km/h during sporting competitions. That said, in Tenerife, most watercraft do not exceed 50 km/h for your safety. It's a good idea not to go too fast if you're a beginner or in bad weather, and to follow the navigation rules. 
Jet skiing on Tenerife is possible all year round, as the island has a subtropical oceanic climate. Avoid windy areas (north of the island) and the autumn season, which is the wettest and subject to trade winds. The sunnier, more arid south coast is perfect for jet-skiing whenever you feel like it. 
Yes, there are jet ski trips for beginners in Tenerife. An instructor will guide you every step of the way. He'll provide you with the right equipment for the job, and give you all the instructions you need to enjoy the sea. So come and try jet skiing in Tenerife and make the most of your vacation!
