Jet Ski Hire
Jet ski hire in Cartagena is restricted to the surrounding beaches and resorts. Hiring a jet ski is one of the most popular seaside holiday activities worldwide, and the perfect adventure for those with a need for speed. However, coastal towns and cities that have large, busy ports and harbours will impose restrictions on certain watercraft. This is certainly the case with jet skis that have unfortunately gained a bit of a dangerous reputation due to reckless riders. The port of Cartagena is one of the most important in the country, both as a naval base and port of call for cruise ships.
Jet Ski Hire In La Manga
Visitors to the city looking for jet ski hire or tours will need to travel a bit further afield. A great place for all sorts of water sports and activities is the popular holiday resort of La Manga. Meaning ‘the sleeve' in Spanish, La Manga is just that, a narrow sleeve of land that separates the Mediterranean sea from the Mar Menor lagoon. All along the strip as it's commonly known are several jet ski hire companies. Prices vary from one company to the next but are certainly not cheap. Just 15 minutes jet ski ride can cost around 40€. Prices tend to be cheaper the longer your hire period. Some companies will also offer guided group jet ski tours to various destinations.
