A shiny fleet of 2011 Sea Doo GTI jet skis lines the docks of the Balboa Fun Zone, ready to zip across the water under the weight of one or two aqueous explorers. Guests can snag a gleaming white jet ski to careen atop waves for two hours after receiving thorough safety instructions from knowledgeable staff members. Balboa Water Sports’ ocean docents also lead informative two-hour jaunts through Newport Harbor each Friday through Sunday. Riders bask in the California coastline’s morning light as sea lions romp on the shore, then zip quickly past Corona del Mar, Crystal Cove, and Emerald Bay, known for its frequent, spontaneous gemstone showers.

One or two jet skiers can climb aboard the sleek, powerful Sea Doos, equipped with intelligent brake and reverse systems, intelligent throttle control, and a poor grasp of the English language. The motorized lounge chairs’ predictable maneuverability and control allow them to be captained by jet skiers of all experience levels.

Balboa Water Sports

A shiny fleet of fuel-efficient Sea-Doo GTI watercraft lines the dock of Balboa Water Sports, ready to conquer the California coastline anytime of the year. Savvy staffers help customers become aqueous explorers, renting out gleaming white jet skis, stand-up paddleboards, and other modes of transport. On popular guided rides, sea lions romp on the shore as watercraft skim along past Corona del Mar, Crystal Cove, and Emerald Bay. Tours also stretch as far south as Laguna Beach, where sea riders often spot adolescent dolphins playing mischievous games such as Marco Polo and spin the bottlenose.
