Idle Speed Watersports Rentals FAQ

We open every day at 9:30 am (weather permitting)! Our jet skis are available as soon as we open (as long as they haven’t already been reserved).

Can I rent a Jet Ski From Idle Speed to take to another beach?

No. We do not allow our equipment to be rented and taken off-premises or out of sight of our staff for any reason. We hope you will consider one of our awesome Island Jet Ski Adventures instead!

What is included in a Jet ski rental?

We offer an amazing 90-minute free ride all across the islands of Clearwater Beach (Honeymoon, Caladesi, and Three Rooker). We provide a guide who will help you take photos and videos, too!

Please check out jet ski rental page

What do I wear/bring?

Most of our renters wear bathing suits and wear plenty of sunscreen to protect their skin from the strong Florida sunshine. You should also ensure you bring your Photo ID, as this is required for us to rent to you!

Do I have to take a boaters test?

While anyone born on or after January 1, 1988, must have, in their possession, a Florida Boating Safety Education ID Card (or a valid FWC and NASBLA-approved boating education certificate). This isn’t a barrier to enjoying a Jet Ski! If you do not have a Florida Boating Safety Education ID Card, you can take the Temporary Boating Safety Education Certificate exam prior to your reservation.


Do I need to be a vacation rental guest to book a watersports experience?

No, you don’t have to be staying with us to enjoy a watersports experience! These are open to the public and can be reserved through the links on their page.
