Weekend Jet Skiing - Anclote Sand Bar

 One of the Best Beaches for Jet Skiing is the North Anclote Sandbar. This secluded spot North of Anclote Key is an excellent place to Jet Ski. It offers a lot of open water, protected inner coastal water and very nice beaches.
 Getting here can be a little rough if the winds are high but once your there everything is great. You can pull your skii's right to the beach and the gullf side is great for swimming and for skiing.
 At times during the summer cruising over the turquoise water you can see Sharks, Manatee and Tarpon cruising the beach as well, It is an excellent time and well worth short ride to get there.
 ALSO be aware that gas can be a problem if your going there to ride all day you could find that you can burn through a tank easily. just keep an eye on it.
 As you can see the wide open areas are great and the water is deep enough right at the shore.
 It's always fun and there are plenty of other skiiers out and about to link up with and have a good time.

Don't ride after DARK

Riding on a Jetski after dark can be dangerous. BUT it is also against the law. Here is a Story of riding at 3am and the consequences of that misadventure.

be safe on the water, Jetskis are Motorcyles on the water and just because you are riding on the softness of water. THINGS you hit sometimes do not move and riding after dark and without the proper safety gear can always be a lethal combination.

Dual or Single Trailer.

One of the cool items we bought when we purchased our Ski's was a DUAL or SINGLE connectable trailer. The purpose is to allow one truck to carry TWO ski's or two trucks to carry ONE ski each. This way If I want to take MY BOAT I can hook the two trailers together and then use one truck to pull the ski's and another to pull the boat. It works great, is very stable and gives us great flexibility when heading to the water. Made by Karavan you should ask your local dealer if they carry them or can get one. We did and for two of them it cost a total of $2000. If you see in the picture it has an extenstion that allows the toungues to connect togther for single towing.

Find a krewe and have fun and be aware that Gasparilla is a VERY BUSY event with a lot of boats and SOME that are not that experienced. Always be on the lookout for other boaters.

Our new jet Ski's

So last year we picked up a SEA DOO GTI SE 155 and a SEA DOO RXT 260 both amazing Jet Ski's and well worth the money. These Skis are versatile, have the power to do whatever you want and are super fun to drive. Putting one person on them is great BUT they both can easily accomodate 3 riders and comfortably fit them on the ski's
