The spectacular cays to the east of Providenciales are also prime spots to visit. The uninhabited coastlines of
Fort George Cay and
Dellis Cay offer some of the finest beaches in the Turks and Caicos.
Rentals and Tours
The La Famille Express off of Long Bay Beach, Providenciales.
At this time, two businesses offer jet ski rentals. Both offer rentals and guided tours to the small scenic cays between Providenciales and North Caicos.
Jet skis in the Turks and Caicos are typically either Yamaha Waverunners or Sea Doo GTI or GTX jet skis.
Unguided rentals start at over 100 dollars for half an hour. Maximum of three (depending on total weight) riders per jet ski. Basic instruction and safety equipment is included.
We recommend bringing appropriate sunglasses or sport goggles to protect against sea spray and wind.
Deposits are typically required for rentals.
Weather and Conditions
Most visitors will find a calm ocean the most enjoyable for this water sport.
The ocean and wave conditions off the south side of Providenciales, where nearly all of the island’s jet skiing takes place, is largely affected by localised winds. Because of this, it’s typically easy to predict ocean surface conditions in the area.
Wind speeds under 10 mph (16 kph) usually results in perfect flat water. Over 16 mph (26 kph) and you’ll be contending with 1-3 foot (.3-1 m) waves.
Your water sports business should be able to clearly define suitable zones. Both jet ski water sports businesses are located on the south side of Providenciales and outside the Princess Alexandra National Park.
