How fast does a jet ski go?

Cleawater, Florida.  One of the most frequent questions we get from our renters is, “How fast does a jet ski go?” Our reply is, hop on our Yamaha jet skis and find out!

Jet skis can go pretty fast, usually 40 mph to 70 mph, depending on how calm the water is, the amount of wind resistance, and the weight of the passengers.  We allow up to three jet ski riders with a max weight of 500 lbs, so its obvious that one person will go much faster than three.

Our Yamaha waverunners will travel about 60 mph, which is super fast on the water versus driving 60 mph in a car – the feeling of a jet ski traveling at 60+mph on the water is intense!

When operating one of our rental jet skis it is important to utilize the safety training described in the Florida Boater Safety Guide found on our website and provided to our jet ski renters.  You should always use precaution, a 360 degree awareness, and avoid contact with other watercraft or vessels.  Renters are required to wear a life jacket, equipped with a whistle, and on a jet ski with a wide angle mirror and fire extinguisher.
