Even for the inexperienced jet skier this is a wonderful location to undertake this activity. Jonathan and his staff are thoroughly professional with safety at the fore. This is a must do fun activity and Tango the must do agency.

Took the 1 hour tour, hadn’t jet skied in years but was great fun. An informative and friendly guide, lets you go at your own pace and have some fun once out in the open waters. Well worth doing.

Hi Alan No licences are required in NZ to operate a jet ski. Though if you wish to come out with us a skipper is required to guide you (on their own separate ski) around the Bay of Islands. Hope that helps. Cheers Ana
