Preparing the Family to Jet Ski for the First Time

If you and your family are preparing to jet ski for the first time, no doubt you are all excited! But it is important to go prepared in order to stay safe and have a wonderful time. Make sure you choose the right location to enjoy your first ride out, like Miami Beach or Key West! In this article, we will share some tips for those who will jet ski for the very first time.

  • Find the Right Company to Rent Jet Skis From

When planning out a day at sea, make sure you find a reliable company insured and trusted with good reviews from past customers. A company like RnR Yacht Rentals in Miami is a good example of a rental company offering jet skis as well as yacht charters. You can choose the time length you want to rent the skis as well as the level of experience you currently have, altering your experience depending on how many times you’ve done it in the past.

  • Keep the Jet Ski Straight

Keeping the jet ski straight in the water is often the most difficult task for a newbie. This is easy to correct, however. Make sure you look beyond the handlebars, with your head up, and gaze into the distance. This will help you keep a straight course and enjoy your trip! Don’t forget though, to always keep an eye on how many MPH you are going. It is easy to take it pretty fast without even noticing you are. This can be crucial when you are around other jet skiers or boaters because accidents can and do easily happen.

  • Resist the Urge to Avoid Danger By Releasing the Throttle

If you worry about colliding with something out in the water, resist the urge to lift your finger from the throttle. There is no rudder on a jet ski, means there is no brakes. Instead, keep up your speed and allow yourself to steer clear of whatever is in your way. Keeping a safe distance between you and other people in the water will make it that much safer and more enjoyable for not only you but also those around you. 

  • Relax!

First-time jet skiers often complain of soreness after their first ride. While this is normal, it is beneficial to remember to relax while on the water. Don’t hold on as if your life depends on it! Relax, keep a tight grip (but not too tight!) and enjoy yourself. Keep your elbows bent slightly. This will enable you to ride the jet ski without soreness or fatigue. Jet skis are an awesome vehicle to enjoy and have some fun out on the ocean. If you are from somewhere not near water, & don’t travel too much, it may be a long time until you get to do something like this again!

  • Don’t Stand

While it may be tempting to try driving while you are standing, don’t attempt this while you are a beginner. This is something best left up to those who have become proficient on a jet ski. 

If you and your family are ready to try the jet ski, use these tips in order to stay safe and have a fabulous time.

Went on A Yacht Fishing Charter In Miami For The First Time

A review from one of our fellow customers:

My husband and I decided to take a winter trip to Miami. I have family there that offered for us to get away for a few days and stay with them. We thought it sounded like a great idea after talking about it. We both checked to make sure we could get a few days off from work. Luckily, we were both able to make arrangements and get the time off from work. We started discussing how we were going to get there. It would be a little bit of a drive, but neither one of us wanted to get on a plane. After talking about it a little more, we chose to drive to Miami rather than fly.

Next, we started looking for things to do while we were visiting Miami. Since neither one of us had been there before, we weren’t sure what we could do while we were there. We knew there would be plenty of things we could have fun doing, but wanted to make arrangements before we got there. I also talked to my family that we were going to stay with to ask them for advice. They recommended going on a yacht fishing charter. They said they recently went on one and it was a really great time. I mentioned it to my husband and he said it sounded like a great idea. I got the name of the company from my family and went to Paradise Fishing Charter’s website to book the charter. I was able to make reservations on their website for the fishing charter. My husband and I were both super excited! Paradise Fishing charters was super professional, friendly and knowledgable which made the process a lot easier. We are so glad we went with them

Shortly after we arrived at my family’s home in Miami, we went on our fishing charter on the yacht. It was a really huge yacht and we both had a great time; we caught a lot more fish than I thought we were going to which was awesome.
