A personal watercraft can be enjoyed
in many ways and not just for cruising. For the water
lover, the possibilities are endless. Here are some ideas
of what you can do with your PWC...
Explore your local wildlife
PWCs are usually quieter and much smaller than most boats so
exploring small areas like inlets or creeks is easier. Since
personal water crafts can navigate through shallow waters, it is
also easier to find hidden areas and watch the wildlife on a
Take a day off
Pack the picnic basket, bring a blanket and take off to a remote
beach or lake area for an unforgettable day in the sun. Most
personal water crafts have plenty of room for storage and a
waterfront adventure can offer a unique way to dine and relax,
accessible only by water.
Why not take your personal water craft out for a relaxing day of
fishing? A growing number of fishing enthusiasts use their PWCs to
make their next big catch.
Have a go at water skiing
Since the wake of a personal water craft is much smaller than of
a boat, it can be less intimidating to try out water skiing for the
first time using a PWC. This is also a great way to teach the
children how to water ski since the parents can be closer to their
child and the ride is smoother.
Try out new watersports
Personal water crafts are great compliments to a variety of
watersports such as diving, wake boarding and kite flying; just
remember to stay safe using our advice
and to follow local regulations.
Discover your adventurous side
If competing is in your blood, you might want to consider
signing up for a personal water craft race or expedition. For
an example, in 2010 six riders covered an astonishing 1,511
nautical miles around the South African coastline on their PWCs -
all in the name of charity.
