ABOUT OUR JET SKI RIDE
Jet ski is a fuel-powered engine that has the ability to carry one or two people, with primary purpose of locomotion on the water. The similarity between this machine and the motorcycle is big, the exception is that motorcycle promotes locomotion in land and jet ski in an aquatic environment.
In Brazil, both the practice of jet skiing and the simple fact of carrying the equipment, are reasons for specific regulation. To conduct a jet ski, it is necessary that the person has a Brazilian Navy authorization and, for that, it is necessary to be over 18 years and always use a life jacket suitable for your body mass. In addition, jet ski must be registered in a regional police station. Due to possible accidents, it is not allowed the use of jet ski less than 200 meters from the shore.
For all these reasons, our tours are always made according to the current regulations. The individual rent is only allowed for people qualified with a ‘Motonauta’ or ‘Arrais Amador’ license. In case you do not have, the tour will be conducted by one of our INSTRUCTORS.
A LITTLE OF JET SKI HISTORY IN THE WORLD
The term jet ski was invented by Kawasaki manufacturer, that owns the record for this watercraft equipment creation. The first jet ski was designed by Kawasaki Motors of Japan, when one of the directors asked the product development department to create a "toy" motor to be offered as a gift to the best customers. For several years, Kawasaki was the only one to manufacture jet skis and, only after at least ten years, other models did emerge from other factories, such as Bombardier, Yamaha and Polaris. Today, we have on the market the brands: Kawasaki, See Doo, Yamaha, Polaris, Hydrospace, among others, with a huge competition for a better place in the market.
Today, after 35 years of production, it is believed that Kawasaki has already manufactured more than 1.000,000 equipments. A worldwide growth directly proportional to its popularity and genius. Nowadays, besides being curious, the jet ski is an object of desire and fascination.
Therefore, national and international manufacturers compete for this market with all their forces, generating organized sports competitions. Professionalism of these competitions has attracted investment from companies around the world. Today, we have the world championship that takes place in the United States every October, bringing together approximately 2.000 drivers from around the world in surch of the world title. There are 10 days of competition until the end of the weekend.
