What you'll do

Once you arrive at our home location, I will get you started by signing the waiver and learning more about your previous experience when it come to riding a Jet Ski. You must complete a boating safety course if you wish to drive the Jet Ski. The BoatUS Foundation's Online Course (https://www.boatus.org/virginia/) is the only FREE Online Boating Safety Course approved by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. We have two, 3-person, 2020 Sea-Doo Fish Pro Jet Skis available and one will be driven by me as the host. I will introduce you to the Jet Ski and go over all of the safety and riding instructions and then we will start the experience. Your experience begins with an idle troll through the Indian River, chock full of a variety of birds and marine life which spills into the Elizabeth River. As we cruise through the Elizabeth River you will see the historic Waterside District and the Battleship USS Wisconsin (BB-64) from the water. Finally, our tour will take us by the Norfolk Naval Shipyard where you will get a chance to safely observe US Navy warships in dry dock!
