How To Prepare for Your First Jet Boat Tour

A yellow jet boat moves down a calm river surrounded by rocks and tropical vegetation. It leaves a wake behind it.

Jet boat tours can be a great way to get an adrenaline rush while spending time in nature. However, there are a few things you need to keep in mind to have a safe, stress-free trip. Keep reading to learn how to prepare for your first jet boat tour.

Dress Appropriately

Whether you’ll be boating on a calm lake or through river rapids, you’ll likely get a little wet on a jet boat tour. Wear clothing that you don’t mind getting wet, and consider fabrics that will dry quickly to avoid discomfort. A poncho or raincoat can also help you stay dry during your ride. Also, wear shoes with a good grip to avoid slipping when entering or exiting the boat. Depending on your plans for the day, it may be wise to leave a change of clothes on shore or packed in a waterproof bag after the boat ride.

Protect Your Belongings

Some items you shouldn't bring on a boat tour include non-waterproof electronics. You wouldn’t want to lose or damage them! Leave valuables, bulky items, and non-essentials onshore in tour company lockers. While you may worry about leaving these items behind, they will be safer onshore than on a boat where they could fall overboard. Pack essential items for the boat tour in a small, waterproof bag that you can keep with you for the duration of the tour.

Plan To Arrive Early

Plan to arrive at the tour meeting point early in order to complete check-in procedures, waivers, and safety checks. If you’re taking a jet boat tour in an unfamiliar location, leave earlier than you think you need to in case of traffic or confusing directions. Arriving early will ensure you don’t miss your boat ride and have enough time to complete all necessary steps before going aboard.

Now that you know how to prepare for your first jet boat tour, you can ensure your first outing goes smoothly. Whether you’re a frequent thrill seeker or a nature lover looking to try something new, you’ll have an unforgettable experience while taking in the scenery in this thrilling way.
