I booked this one hour a session for 11//9/23 as my son and grandson had told me how much fun they had when they visited Jersey in August. We arrived by bus from St. Helier town centre, which was very convenient, as the bus driver knew exactly where ‘Le Houle slipway’ was.
This was my first experience of a Jet Ski and it proved to be the most fun I have had for decades! The machine was easy to get used to and control. It was quite safe for me as a 77-year-old who was a teenager at heart.
The tuition by the two young lads and a girl about the safety code and how to control the jet ski was explained very well, clearly and in a friendly manner.
The clearly marked area to travel out by was long enough to get used to the slow speed handling, followed by a large rectangular are in this beautiful bay where there is plenty of space for speed over rough or smooth water. I did not fall off, but I understand that if had taken passengers (up to 2) they might easily fall off because the turns can be quite abrupt and exciting.
I suggest an improvement would be to provide a beach towel flash changing robe so that any customer that wants to change into dry clothing can do that discreetly, as there are no facilities on the beach.
The tide was going out as we arrived at 11:00, so by the time I was out on the water my wife could not take any pictures of me as I was too far away! I suggest that you advise people to check the tide times if they want to be able to see a person on the water closer to them.
