Default Jet skiing in Dubai

Morning all,

Sorry for asking this, if it’s already been mentioned but I couldn’t find anything relevant when I used the search feature

Is there a place one can go jet skiing in Dubai. I have some family coming down and they really want to do this.

I rang all the above hotels and they all said the same thing, which was that its not possible unless you own one.

Surely there must be a place where I can go and rent one

You may need to resort to Plan B and take your friends snow ski-ing at the MOE instead or you could try ice-skating at Dubai Mall.

You could go along to the Kempinski in Ajman.

They have jet skis on the beach, i've done it a few times. Cant remember the prices though.

You would have to pay to use the facilities at the hotel - around 200dhs per person but if you were making a day of it by the pool/beach you might enjoy it.

So, if you DO own one, where can you go? Been thinking about buying one for a while, but unsure where I could actually run the thing...

The nearest place i found was in Sharjah at the Lou Lou'a Beach resort. They charge Dhs 100 for 20 minutes. Maybe Sharjah hasnt banned them.

But like everything else here, depends on who you ask
