Weightlessness, suspended height, and three-dimensional freedom of movement. These are three of the unique sensations adventurers experience during a visit to Florida Keys Jetpacks, where pilots lead patrons into the Florida Keys skies behind the controls of a water-powered jetpack. The jetpacks harness enough power to launch users to heights of 30 feet, or to shoot them below the water’s surface like gull diving for quarters to buy fish. Here’s how it works: the jetpack slurps watery fuel through a 33-foot hose before blasting it through a pair of nozzles at up to 60 PSI, generating more than 420 points of thrust to achieve it’s gravity defying jaunts into the sky. Throughout every session, certified instructors provide coaching and support via specialized helmets equipped with waterproof communication systems.
