The Kawasaki STX 15F is a highly reactive PWC with superb handling in all conditions with max speeds of 110km/h. At Ultimate Watersports we provide only the best gear for our customers. The 15 minute session is enough to get a good feel for the water and the ski itself. Or go for an hour and really test it out! If you are a first timer and simply want to cross this off the bucket list, don't worry. We also provide you with a brief training and will supervise you to make sure you have the best experience possible.

When you arrive we will go through all the safety briefings and make sure you are competent to handle the ski. We then fit you up with a PFD and head down to the skis where we will go over the controls. By now, you probably can't wait to head out. As you head past the shallow pockets of reef to the open waters you will open her up and feel the ski leap out of the water in response. This is about the moment you realise how much fun the session is going to be as you pour into your first turn and throttle out of it. You might even give it a speed test, if you are brave enough...

Trying the Jet Pack for the first time with Ultimate Watersports is great for several reasons... our location on the Geraldton Foreshore means sheltered waters always. THE BEST location for fly boarding or jetpack. Secondly, the crystal clear waters will allow you to see the bottom making for some amazing experiences.
