We had a Jet Ski guided tour. The staff were lovely and very patient. Safety is priority but they still want you to relax and have fun. We would definitely recommend Uplift Watersports.

Most trips would be about an hour but you should allow a maximum 1.5hr for the total trip. The total time depends on how many are on board (max of ten). Hope that helps. Sharon
