Fly Jet Sports
Spout jets shoot from beneath your feet, launching you from the water's surface, over boats and wildlife. But the experience doesn't hinge on magic or a bribe slipped to Aquaman. Instead, Fly Jet Sports' licensed instructors teach guests how to control their own FlyBoards—water-powered jetpacks strapped to boots and fueled by a current shot through a long, flexible hose. Instructors send FlyBoard users out off the coast of Dana Point, Newport Beach, and Long Beach with the skills to travel nearly 30 feet high or down to 8 feet below the surface. The boards also let their operators reach speeds up to 18.5 miles per hour when towed by a jet ski or chased by an amorous whale.
