Alaska Jet Ski Tours

When you think Jet Skis, you probably think tropical destinations or hot summers at the lake. But skimming across Alaska’s glacial waters is quickly catching on as a fun and unique way to explore glaciers and marine wildlife. After all, touring by Jet Ski is more active than a day cruise, and speedier than a kayak. If you love getting up close and personal, and crave fast-paced activities, this is a great option.

Piloting a Jet Ski isn’t something you need experience doing; the machines are easy and safe to operate, even for first-timers. And what do you wear? In the chilly waters of Alaska, it won’t be a swimsuit. But never fear: tour operators provide full-body dry suits, as well as neoprene booties and gloves, so you’ll stay warm and dry, even if it’s raining.
