Jetski rental in Dubai: How does it work?

To rent your jetski in Dubai, you must use an agency. There are two ways to do this. First, you can do it online, via the agencies' websites. Secondly, you can go to the agency once you are in Dubai. But in order not to have to face a lack of availability of jetski, it would be better to rent your jet ski in advance, online. 

Also, to rent a jetski in Dubai, you must be at least 16 years old. Even then, an adult of at least 18 years old must accompany you.

How much does a jetski rental in Dubai cost?

First, let's note that two options are offered to you when you rent your device. Indeed, you have the choice between a small 30-minute trip and a one-hour excursion. The price of the rental then varies according to the option chosen and the agency. It also depends on the rate of change at the time. For the rental of a jetski for 30 minutes, expect 84 to 86 euros. But for an excursion (1 hour), you must add 50 euros to the price of 30 minutes.

Also, to rent a cheap jetski in Dubai, visit the websites of several agencies and make a comparison to choose the best offer.

Flyboarding in Dubai, an alternative to jetskiing

The adrenaline-pumping water activity of flyboarding is new, but is becoming increasingly popular in Dubai and around the world. Handling this device is not as easy as handling a jetski. That's why a professional instructor accompanies you during your water activity. Note that this activity is also done on presentation of the identity card.
