Jet Ski Safari Bikes Come to Ocean Village

Jet Ski SafariHave you ever wanted to take to the water on a jet ski? Well, thanks to a new venture by Solent Jet Ski & Ribs, coming to Ocean Village soon, you have the opportunity to do so. They’ve already had their floating dock installed (it’s over by Atlantic Close) and will soon introduce their SeaDoo Jet Skis to Ocean Village, ready to begin charters and training between 1st March until 31st October 2012.

Their jet ski safari days are the perfect way to get a taste for jet ski bikes. With an RYA certified instructor on hand to teach you how to safely drive your ski around the Solent you can visit many famous locations such as Cowes & Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight, and the Needles lighthouse.

Jet ski bikes are great fun, reach speeds of about 40mph, and can turn on the spot. A jet ski safari from Ocean Village will cost £79 per person. Everything is included, the jet ski bike, waterproof clothing, instruction and all fuel used.

Each event is run with 2 guests per jet ski bike with an instructor on a safety rib boat. Each rider also has the opportunity, should they want to do so, to take turns at going solo while the other joins the instructor on the rib.

Imagine the scene. Your friends or work colleagues start a jetski safari by being shown how to use our powerful jetski safari bikes by a qualified instructor at the waters edge within our base in Ocean Village marina in Southampton city centre.

When everyone has grasped the basics of safely handling a jet ski bike in the protected calm waters of the marina we head out into Southampton Water & the Solent. You will soon gain confidence in these amazing machines with the peace of mind of that your RYA jet ski instructor is always on hand. So we start exploring! Let’s head off to Cowes or the Hamble river for coffee, the choice is yours.

If jet skis aren’t for you, or you’re part of a larger group, then they also offer trips on their powerful rib speed boats which are licensed for up to 11 guests and the skipper. And should you want to take it all further then they also offer several training courses including the RYA PWC Jetski course, Powerboat level 1 course & Powerboat level 2 training course.

If you would like to know more or make a reservation with them then visit their website: Solent Jet Ski & Ribs. They expect that summer weekends will sell out very quick so book early!

If you do go out on a jet ski with Solent Jet Ski & Ribs we’d love to hear about your experience. If you send us a review with some photographs we might publish it.
