Rockaway Jet Ski
Most visitors to New York City spend their time wandering the streets or riding the subway. Rockaway Jet Ski, however, affords guests a third, often overlooked mode of transportation—water. Located in the Rockaways at Thai Rock restaurant, the company rents out flyboards, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards, as well as Yamaha VX Cruisers from its exclusive fleet for leisurely jaunts around Jamaica Bay. Guided tours, meanwhile, lead jet skiers past classic New York landmarks such as Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Battery Park, a tranquil seaside park where ducks, squirrels, and wild Energizer bunnies roam. Stand up paddle boards navigate through the serene waters of Jamaica Bay while catching distance views of the Manhattan skyline. Longer jet-ski trips include a journey up the Hudson River, around the entirety of Long Island, or a multiday excursion to Atlantic City.
