Empire City Watersports provides people with the opportunity to see New York City's sights from an entirely new perspective—while jet skiing across the waters of New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and the East River. Before visitors rev the engines on their Yamaha VX watercraft, they don provided life vests and wetsuits (if needed) and listen to a brief lesson on how to safely operate the jet skis.
From there, groups can depart and follow a tour guide at a comfortable pace as they pass by Coney Island, cruise beneath the Brooklyn Bridge, or jump over The State of Liberty's torch. Empire City Watersports even offers tours that circle the entirety of Manhattan, stopping at key points of interest along the way. Rentals are also available for guests who are looking to just enjoy the freedom of the waters on a Jet Ski.
