I just finished my JetPack adventure and had a blast. It takes about 5-10 minutes to get the hang of it but the constant radio instruction keeps you informed. For the first outing the throttle is controlled by the instructor - this is a god send initially because you're focusing so much on staying balanced that throttle is the last thing on you mind (well at least mine).

I read the review by LordGrimthorpe. I would disregard virtually everything he/she has written. The instruction given on the dock was fast but it wasn't rocket science. The first thing they cover when you're in the water is the turtle flop - rolling over if/when you're face down. You practice it while in arms reach of the staff.

Anyway, I would suggest giving it a go. If I were to complain...it would be nice if it was a little cheaper (so I could have done it again) but it is a tourist thing so you expect to pay a little more. It also would have been nice to be able to talk back to the instructor - I wanted to try having throttle control but couldn't communicate it back to the controller. Otherwise I had a great time.

This was by far one of the greatest excursions of my many trips to Naples w/ my family. This was my foreign exchange brother's (16yrs) and my (14yrs) first time ever doing this and we were up in the air in under 5 minutes! Be warned though, you must have much confidence in order to do this! Overall we had a great time and hope to be visiting them again! (Also, bring an extra $20 for an awesome video of your flight!)
Thanks again!

I walked into CJ's having no idea what to expect. I had seen other people do the water jet pack and thought it would be awesome. Being a 16 year old boy it sounded very interesting. It was a great experience! I was quickly greeted by the captain himself and given brief instruction on how to operate the machinery. That's when the nerves kicked in and I didn't know if I was capable. I was clipped in and eased into the water. After some instruction I started the jet pack and was propelled forward. It took a little practice but I was soon in the air. Being so high up in the air was a thrilling experience. It was amazing!
