Great trip, great guide and a whole lot of fun. The hour was an adrenaline-fueled adventure and would be keen to do the 2.5 hr now! Would fully recommend to everyone!

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
