Without jet skis, the only way for thrill seekers to rule the waves would be to send a notarized request to Poseidon. Dominate lakes sans Olympian involvement with today's Groupon: for $85, you get a three-hour, in-water jet-ski rental from Arizona Outdoor Fun, with locations at Lake Pleasant and Bartlett Lake (a $185 value).
Arizona Outdoor Fun maintains a fleet of aquatic and off-road vehicles available to check out for fun-filled days exploring natural Arizona landscapes. Clients can walk up to either the Lake Pleasant or Bartlett Lake locations and ride away on a wake-blasting jet ski without the hassle of towing or launching from a truck-hitched trailer. Customers rent the Honda AquaTrax F12X GPScape or another brand of similarly sized jet ski. The AquaTrax, a 10-foot-long motorized seahorse with a four-cylinder, turbocharged engine and a 155mm jet pump, can attain speeds of up to 70 miles per hour on water and 10 miles per hour on butter. This high-performance aquamobile boasts top-notch handling, wind-slashing speed, and seating space for up to three riders. Lake jockeys glide along waters to scope out the best camping, fishing, and swimming spots or can simply enjoy a scenic water-shredding experience more thrilling than low-speed donuts in their neighbor's backyard pool.
Arizona Outdoor Fun
Arizona Outdoor Fun lets riders whip around winding lakes, trails, and tight canyons the way nature intended—atop landscape-chewing wheels. When not busy peddling a cache of extreme all-terrain Honda vehicles and dirt bikes, Rhino UTVs, and agile sport quads, their expert guides lead fun, scenic ATV tours around the Verde River and Bradshaw Mountains, sharing tidbits about local Native American culture, plants, fossilized cowboy hats, and wildlife. They also deal in aquatic sports with boat rentals including wakeboard boats, pontoon boats, and fishing boats, small vessels such as jet skis, and kayaks and canoes that run on man power. Master mechanics at the shop’s garage keep all vehicles ready for adventure, drawing on more than 25 years of experience to repair personal ATVs and other recreational crafts, including scooters and go-karts.
