The Deal

  • $75 for a 25-minute water-propelled Flyboard ride (a $149 value)

Literal rocket packs, propelled by jets of water, send their passengers soaring in controlled flights over the calm surface of rivers and bays. Guests get 25 minutes to enjoy the flight, and can control the force of the jets to scoot along under water or burst forth and soar above the ripples. Guests can bring their own full wetsuit or half wetsuits are available to rent at no charge.

Customers are encouraged to book early, as there is limited space.


As it turns out, the futuristic vision of flying men conceived of in the pages of comic books is possible thanks to a simple 250-horsepower engine and some water. Those specs describe the clever, gravity-defying contraptions that give the company Rocketman its name. Trainers strap adventurers into self-stabilizing Flyboards that are propelled by two jet streams of water. They then teach their charges the basics of controlling the packs, and unleash them to play and fly over the waters of the ocean, river, or bay. The packs can easily lift passengers up to 30 feet above the surface of the water, providing stunning views, an unparalleled sense of freedom, and a great way to retrieve your stolen sunglasses from a seagull.
