For those adrenaline junkies look no further than a jet ski adventure. Something is thrilling about gliding across the bay at high speeds, wind in your hair, and surrounded by natural beauty. Of course, being a  coastal destination, we have plenty of jet ski options; from rentals to guided dolphin tours. It's like taking a motorcycle tour of paradise, but on the water.

Experience Perdido Key by Jet Ski

We'll start our adventure in Perdido Key on Ole River, the border between Alabama and Florida. Ole River is a beautiful waterway that borders Perdido Key. I have personal experience on this body of water; it was here I had my first experience with Florida living. I've spent many hours fishing, skim boarding and windsurfing in Ole River. It's the perfect place to spend the day.

 

Ole River is a beautiful calm body of water, which is the perfect ingredient for a fun adventure. Head east on the jet ski, just before the Intercoastal Waterway, you'll discover some little islands, perfect for some chill time. Along the way enjoy dolphins and many bird species enjoying the coastal waters. If that sounds inviting then head over to Flora-Bama Marina & Watersports, there you can rent a jet ski.

 

Pensacola Beach Jet Ski

Pensacola Beach has a good selection of businesses that rent jet skis on Santa Rosa Sound. These waters align the beautiful sandy beaches of Pensacola Beach, Gulf Breeze and touch many areas of the Gulf Islands National Seashore. Here's a little tip, go early in the morning when the water is nice and glassy, nothing compares to that!

 

Dolphin Tour by Jet Ski

Ok, it's fun blasting around the bay on a jet ski, but how about a guided dolphin tour by a jet ski. Experience the thrill of the ride while on a quest to see these beautiful, playful dolphins. I think a trip like this is perfect for a hot summer day. Picture this, gliding across the surface of the water, sea spray cooling your skin, and searching for those dolphins. Sounds pretty majestic to me!

 

Watch The Pros

Maybe you would instead experience the thrill through others? Pensacola Beach and Perdido Key are home to several professional jet ski competitions. Watch the participants race and also give a lively performance as the jump and even flip while riding.
