There are jet skis in Alcudia. 50 euros for 20 minutes was the rate last year (or 65 euros for two people also for 20 minutes). Seems a lot to pay for 20 minutes.

Yes i am sure you are right Bella, thank goodness you do need a license, can you imagine how dangerous the bay would be if anyone could jump on a jetski .

Unfortunately yes! I think there were a few bad accidents over the years and that was the reason they brought it in. I just hope they stick to checking correctly!

Yes You need a licence for anything over 8HP and they do check regularly for licence, Insurance and registration. Love my Boat not a Jet Ski fan delighted they don't Hire them out in the Port or even close

So are motorbikes............don't blame the jet ski, blame those who ride them irresponsibly.

They're a great bit of fun when used correctly.

Each to their own....

Direct links to other commercial websites are only allowed if the company pays to advertise on the main PP.com website, simples .

Ok. So if you need to delete the direct link for Aurora Powerboats as they are a business, can you still leave the name up for people to google them?
