With 825 miles of shoreline, Florida has plenty of opportunities to engage in water sports. There are also numerous lakes in the Sunshine State to explore. Jet Ski Madness recently named Florida as a top place to Jet Ski in the country.
“Finding the finest spots to jet ski might be challenging because there are so many interesting and fun water bodies all throughout the United States. This guide will lead you to places that have more to offer than just a nice place to go boating,” the feature explains.
In total, Jet Ski Madness highlights 13 of the best places to Jet Ski in the United States. Of the 13, six of the destinations are in Florida. From lakes to rivers to oceans to islands, there are jet ski options everywhere.
Lakes and Rivers
The story lists Lake Weir and the Kissimmee River as popular jet ski spots. Though they are more inland than the rest, these two locations are spacious. Lake Weir is fresh water.
Miami Beach and Panama City Beach are spotlighted here as the two places to go if you want a beach day jet ski experience. Jet Ski Madness points out the beautiful scenery you may find while jet skiing in Miami. In addition to the city skyline, it’s common to find manatees on the southeast coast. Panama City Beach, however, has over ten places where you rent jet skis right along the shoreline. There are 27 miles of white sand beaches to cruise down here.
Finally, the island options to jet ski in Florida are simply breathtaking. The Keys offer certain excursion routes to hop on a jet ski. Why explore the islands on land when you can do it from the ocean? Marco Island, on the southwest side of the state, also offers a plethora of jet ski options. Certain resorts like the Marriott have rentals available in their beach area. As Jet Ski Madness states, you may even see a dolphin while jet skiing in the Gulf of Mexico on Marco Island.
