I’ve been looking forward to going on a myrtle beach dolphin jet ski tour with my wife for several months now. We live in Southern California so it should come as no surprise that I chose the idea of a dolphin ride because they are plentiful in that area. In fact, they’re so plentiful, that they have become endangered in some areas. I wanted to take my wife on this unique adventure, and I was wondering why it wasn’t available in our area. The answer to that question is simple – it’s not an easy thing to do!
It is possible for people who own boats and jet skis to go dolphin jet skiing in Southern California, but they need to be aware of the risks involved. There are manatees (males and females) in the area, and also in Orange County, so that’s going to make things a little bit difficult. I also understand that there are strict rules about diving within nine miles of shore. So, if you get out into the deeper waters, you could be in big trouble.
Dolphin jet skis and boats can get very large… sometimes you have just a single person trying to use them! And since manatees (and other large marine mammals like whales) will occasionally go for dive-a-likes, that puts the risk of the skier getting harmed up front. This is why I wouldn’t recommend taking a group on a dolphin dive-a-lift. I would, however, recommend that you take a couple of beginner skiers on a one-day outing. You can then slowly work your way up to the more advanced rides once the children become more comfortable with the equipment.
I did see a dolphin whisperer take his dolphin skis out onto the California coast a while back, and he did quite well with it. It was quite impressive to watch the huge amount of sharks that pass by as he glided effortlessly across the water. The trip was part of an annual “Dive & Dolphin” event that takes place the month of March. This tour also includes visits to various exotic “aversages” throughout Mexico and the Caribbean.
In between tours of the world’s natural beauty, many skiers (and their families) enjoy the facilities provided at certain resorts by “per jet ski rental services.” A good example of this type of tour is the “Carnival Cruise” company’s “Vegas Cruise.” This is a three-day tour of the famous Las Vegas Strip, complete with stops at casinos, nightclubs, ports of call, and a “registry” that allows travelers to avoid the traffic, hotels, and all the hassles associated with touring these popular sites in a car.
Another company offering this type of tour operates in Costa Rica. “Dive & Dolphin” is operated by Costa Rica’s Solvereros Cruises, and is available from March through November, on their new ‘ulse’ cruise line. On this tour, guests can view up to ten,000 islands, swim with dolphins, go on jungle hikes, and enjoy a wide array of marine activities. You can even rent an all-inclusive vacation package, which will provide meals, drinks, and accommodations. You can even reserve your spot on an aviatorship, cruise ship, or luxury liner.
Finally, there is another company that offers a similar tour to that of Costa Rica’s Solvereros Cruises. ” Voyage to Costa Rica With a Dolphin Whisperer” offers a week long trip beginning in January, which includes ocean sails, jungle treks, visits to indigenous tribes, and dolphin-watching cruises. After your initial cruise through the islands, you’ll return to a luxury cruise liner for the weeklong second leg of your trip. This group trip cruise is led by expert skiers, and includes a one-of-a-kind dolphin whisperer who can teach guests to interact with the dolphins while they ski the open waters.
If you are interested in seeing manatees or dolphin, but you don’t have the time or experience to do so on foot, you may be intrigued by the idea of renting a jet ski rental instead. You’ll be amazed at the variety of manatees you will see when you venture out onto some of the world’s deepest and most beautiful waters. Your family will never be the same again!
