Seeing NYC by jetski in itself is an experience worth coming out on one of our tours for. We handle our tours at all different times, if a sunset is something you would like to experience please feel free to set a time later in the day or just ask us and we can set you up with one of our later trips to capture pictures of the sunset with the monuments.
A jetski tour is not something that everyone wants to experience and we get that over here at Empire City Watersports. Some people want the freedom of a jetski rental. The freedom of being out there on the water and having the ability to ride the jetski as you please is an enjoyable thrilling experience that may interest you. Even though there is a set area that you must stay within on a jetski rental the area we give to our guests is quite large, it is 4 miles long x 3 miles wide. These pictures show you what to expect on a jetski rental.
