Flying with Body Jet Xtreme is definitely a must-do in St Maarten! Jetpack is a once in a lifetime experience and Tom, Bobby and Keenan just make it incredible!
The sensation of flying is awesome. Actually so awesome that once was not enough! As I was staying at a nearby hotel, I just kept seeing people fly and couldn't resist the urge to go fly a second time! Tom got me at least 20 feet high, the view is SO amazing. You should really try it, words cannot truly explain the feeling you get up there. I just wanted to keep flying forever.
It is extremely fun and totally safe. The jetpack is really easy to handle and the staff explains everything perfect (though it is quite difficult to concentrate with such hot guys lol). You even have this helmet on where you keep in communication with them.Tom, Bobby and Keenan are such nice and friendly guys that they'll make your day so much fun. So don't miss the chance to go fly up in the sky with Body Jet Xtreme, it is absolutely thrilling!
Best wishes to you all and hope to see you again soon!
p.s.Hope Keenan doesn't keep on losing bets with you Tom haha, seems french are not sooo good at that huh? Lol.

Using a water propelled jetpack is an extraordinary experience! While my family was in St. Maarten my two brothers and I signed up for this activity while we were at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort. The activity location is around 5-10 minutes away from the hotel and the owner Tom was able to pick us up from the hotel and drop us off too which was really convenient (saves you a taxi fee). Tom and his co-instructor Bobby were really friendly people. They'll walk you through all the instructions and they're really patient. When you're flying they'll have control of the water jet's power so they can cut the machine off if anything is wrong. (The water makes for a safe landing). Plus in the helmet they have a radio attached so that they can give you instructions (this was really useful for learning tricks). My favorite part of the jetpack was going underwater with it at full speed (the submarine). They'll teach you how to walk on water, do some wide turns, hover like a helicopter, and do a harrier jet like landing on the beach. We were technically only allowed 30 minutes each on the one machine they had but they were really nice and gave us 10 minutes extra each to learn how to use the jetpack. Flying 20 feet in the air with the pack is ridiculously fun. This is easily the best activity on the island. Even kids can use it (they have a pack that the instructor can use to fly children in the air). If you're at St. Maarten definitely sign up for this!

Thank you for writing us such a kind review. Were glad that our French member of the staff could make it easier for you to understand the instructions, and I'm sure everyone on the beach would agree with me when I say you had a great flight in any language!

Thank you again,

Tommy

Staying at the Sonesta Maho Beach Resort, we were here with family for a week at St. Maarten. Body Jet Xtreme is a MUST-Go experience during your time here. We went parasailing, jet-skiing, snorkeling (any activity on the island, you name it), but Body Jet Xtreme definitely made #1 on our list.

It was only a few minutes drive from our resort, and we were all a bit nervous at first as it was all our first time. Rest assured, you have absolutely nothing to worry about. It's very safe, exciting and best of all exhiliarating. Tom and Bobby are some of the nicest guys you can meet, very friendly and most importantly informative and patient. I would definitely recommend at least a 30 min ride, it can take 10-15 minutes to get the hang of it, but once you get the hang of it you're going to get an amazing experience. Will absolutely come back, and once again I highly recommend that you check this out, It's a once in a life time experience and by the far one of the best activities on the island.
