Riding A Jet Ski Near Auckland Last Summer

Visiting Auckland or living there permanently and keen to brave the weather and explore on a jet ski? Then I’ve got you covered!

I have searched for the best jet ski rental stores in Auckland and have compared them based on their tour lengths, pricing and model of jet skis. And the best part? I have no business relationship with any of them, so this is as unbiased as they come!

Let’s begin.

Jet Ski Hire Auckland

While the summers are short and the winters are long, it doesn’t mean you can’t book yourself in for a tour. Sometimes winter can be the calmest time on the water!

Most jet ski rental companies will provide you with a wetsuit to borrow for the day and this is included in the price. All you need then is a smile and a willingness to explore.

So if you’re in Auckland, check out these places:

1. Auckland Jet Ski Hire

For the ultimate experience, it’s hard to look past Auckland Jet Ski Hire. They are well established and the business is owned by locals. They use the Sea-Doo GTI models which are a step above what most hire companies use which is a good reason why I’ve ranked them #1.

You can ride through summer, winter or both. They do tours right out to Waiheke Island which is only around 30 minutes from their base. You can also check out Rangitoto and Motuihe while you’re there to get the full experience. 4-hour jet ski rentals are the best value.

2. Auckland Jet Ski Rentals

For a slightly cheaper experience, Auckland Jet Ski Rental is currently offering hire-only for those who have a jet ski licence already. They’re based in Wai O Taiki Bay (the only company here) and offer some easy thrills for locals and travelers alike.

3. Hibiscus JetSki Hire

The last on this list is Hibiscus JetSki Hire which started in 2018 and allows locals and visitors alike to explore the beautiful Whangaparaoa Peninsula. They offer tours for those less confident and can even bring their jet skis directly to your accommodation. They also offer tow-away options for those with tow bars on their vehicles.

In Summary

You certainly don’t need a licence with any of the companies listed above. As long as you have a tour guide, then you’re allowed to ride, either by yourself or with a passenger. Jet Ski Hire Orewa is also recommended if you’re not exactly in the city area plus there is another based in Takapuna Beach where you can take one away for an entire week!

Now you have no real excuses but to get out there and explore these beautiful, clean and crisp waterways. 😃

I became obsessed with the marine industry when I was just 7-years old. Today I’m thrilled to share my knowledge online. When I’m not out there riding, I’m engaging with industry trends and eagerly helping people get more time-freedom online so they can spend more time out there riding their jet skis around.
