I woke up this morning thinking about Fort Myers. I woke up, wishing I was cruising along the clear ocean water between Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach. By cruising, I mean ripping it up on a Jetski! Is this something you’ve always wanted to do? If so, here are 3 Fort Myers Jetski Rental Locations for you to take that plunge and mark it off your Fort Myers Bucket List!

Licenses and Laws: There are license laws associated with operating a small watercraft in Florida. Many of these website have information about this. I would recommend doing the online class before you get to Florida, this will save you the time on your vacation!
One rule for example is: Anyone born after Jan. 1, 1988 must also have a NASBLA approved Safe Boating License in order to drive a WaveRunner.
I also saw this: You need a license unless The person between the ages of 16 and 23 is accompanied by a person over 23 or The person between the ages of 16 and 23 is accompanied by a person with a NASBLA Boating License
Temporary licenses are generally available at all locations. Please call the location ahead of time to confirm that you can get this temporary license. You should allow at least one hour to obtain a license.
