What is a jet ski?
Jet ski is the term generically used to refer to a jet powered personal watercraft (PWC) that you ride on the water. Although ‘Jet Ski’ is technically a brand name of a specific PWC, when people talk about jet skis we are all talking about any brand of this style of recreational watercraft. It’s basically a motorcycle that you ride on the water, that can usually seat one or two people.
Riding a jet ski is a lot of fun - whether you’re the driver or sitting on board as a passenger. Jet skis can manage thrilling speeds, tight turns, and flexible steering as you zoom around the water. They’re easy to drive, and due to the latest technology and modern regulations, the safety aspects of the jet ski make it a safe water sport. Jet ski hire or a jet ski tour is definitely a great way to add some excitement into your life!

How old do you have to be to drive a jet ski by yourself?
The age limitations for driving a jet ski differ from place to place, so you’ll need to check the restrictions listed on the specific Adrenaline experience or contact us to check. However, the general rule for jet ski tours in Perth is that the minimum age for drivers is 18 years.
The minimum passenger age varies, but in this case it’s 8 years old for the eco tour, and 10 years old for the more high-intensity blast tour.
At Adrenaline we have jet ski tours and jet ski hire opportunities all over Australia, and the ages for drivers cover a wide range. You can find experiences that allow unlicensed 16-year-olds to drive a jet ski in some parts of Australia, so if that’s what you’re looking for it’s all about location!
What is required on a jet ski?
In general, hiring a jet ski or joining a jet ski tour is a low-hassle event! Everything is easy to pick up and the necessities are all provided for you. Most jet ski tours don’t require any licence to drive a jet ski, though some may require a road driver’s licence.
For a lot of jet ski hires or tours, a reasonable level of fitness is required/recommended, because conditions out on the water can be physically demanding. But it’s a very accessible activity that most people will have no trouble keeping up with.
The safety regulations for the jet ski tours in Perth stipulate that the jet skis can handle a maximum weight of 230kg each. So whether you’re going as a solo driver or with a second person riding on board, the total weight needs to be less than 230kg to ensure all the safety aspects of the jet ski are in check.
What to wear jet skiing in Perth?
While you won’t necessarily be fully submerged in the water at any point during your Perth jet ski tour, you’ll likely get wet. Plus, the area around Rockingham and the surroundings of Garden Island are a pristine place to go for a dip - so why not wear swimmers just in case!
You should dress for the weather, and with the expectation that you’ll cop a fair amount of splashback while zooming around on the jet ski. For the Perth jet ski tours all riding apparel like life jackets and wetsuits will be provided.
