Start your wave-hopping fun when you are Jet Skiing in Cancun
Jet skiing in Cancun can be a wonderful way to enjoy the sights and the Caribbean Sea.
You will find that there are two ways in which you can rent a jet ski in Cancun. The first way is to rent the equipment yourself and enjoy your own excursions. The cost will be somewhere between $35.00 and $50.00 per 30 minutes. This can become very expensive if you plan on using the Jet Ski for 1/2 day.
But, you can find that there are a few tours that offer ski jet adventures. Many of these are through jungle tours. The tours are usually with a wave runner that is designed for 2 people. The tour will last between 2 and 3 hours. They usually also include 45 minutes of snorkeling. A guide will lead the way through the beautiful and awesome mangroves to the Punta Nizuc area where you will be able to enjoy snorkeling or just relaxing. They you will follow the guide back to the marina on your jet ski. This tour price is around $50.00. You may find some packages for an all day excursion with the use of a jet ski for around $100.00.
You can rent a jet ski on the beachside or the lagoon side. There are certain areas where you can use the Jet Ski. These areas are marked by buoys. Speed is not a problem and you can go just as fast you would like. You must be 18 years of age to drive a jet ski and it is required that you wear a life jacket. The going price for renting a jet ski along the beaches is around $45.00 for 30 minutes. You may be lucky enough to find an independent operator at a lower price.
The jungle tours can be fun and exciting for everyone in your family. Most jungle tours include 2 guides, one for the leader and one that follows behind everyone in the tour. This way no one will get lost and this will also ensure safety. The tour will leave from a marina or dock on the lagoon. The tour allows 2 people per Jet Ski, if you wish to ride alone you will have to pay for both seats. All jet skis must follow the guide and they have a designated speed. The tour guide will give you a detailed explanation of the rules and the hand signals that he will be using to guide you through the mangroves and the lagoon. As, with all types of tours you must abide by rules of safety and keep a good distance between yourself and the person in front of you to avoid accidents.
