Is it safe to ride a jet ski?

It is possible that you have thought if jet skis are safe, suitable for all or if they have civil liability and accident insurance … Do not worry, the answer is yes and it is one of the best activities in Tenerife!

There is a law that compels all watercrafts (recreational or for sports) to have a civil liability insurance. This insurance is established to guarantee the damages that may occur while using them, regardless of the use (particular or as part of an activity).

What does the insurance cover?

The boat insurance must cover damages to third parties (other persons, maritime facilities or marinas) in addition to the person driving the motorcycle and its companion.

Without insurance, the person in charge could end up being fined with up to 20,000 euros and a infraction. Either way, the navigation license must be in force and the captain must have the pertinent title to be able to do the work.

The safe is the most important. That is why our jet ski has integrated a sensor that allows the watercraft to stop in a matter of seconds thanks to a remote control, which will activate in case of danger if needed.
