Enjoy the excitement of jet skiing in the beautiful waters ofF Kaanapali Beach Maui. Guests with wheelchairs or walkers, even those guests that cannot swim, can all be accommodated. Rentals are available by half hour or by the full hour on Honda Aquasports that can handle riders up to a weight of 420 lbs. So 1 or 2 people are no problem. A third person is not recommended for beginners (very difficult to get 3 people back on the machine if you fall off).
A red inflatable boat will shuttle passengers from the beach to a platform. Jet Ski Island is located approximately 2,500 feet from shore. This is where you will sign rental contracts, be fitted into life vests, and given water instruction by one of the jet ski instructors before riding time starts. The jet ski area is over 400 acres of open ocean. Any time the jet skis come near the barge they must keep the traffic flowing the same direction. Other than that, they can do whatever they want in the area as long as they keep a safe distance from other water crafts (which is about 300 feet). Jet skiing is not available during whale season, which is December 15th through May 15th.
For our guests needing assistance with a wheelchair or walker, staff have years of experience taking paraplegic riders and can help people with special needs in and out of the boat with one of the instructors taking them on the Jet Ski. There is a walkway from the parking area behind the Hyatt directly behind their Red Umbrella and they offer a place to leave wheelchairs. There is also Handicapped Parking. Please inform vendor at time of reservation so that you can be properly accommodated.
