Audrey has tested the Jet ski without a license in Saint-Laurent-du-Var

Hospitality advisor - Information Tourist Office of Saint-Laurent-du-Var

August 2019

Fans of speed and freedom, this activity is for you!


Ideally located on the private sandy beach "Bay Star Beach and Lounge", the nautical base of "Glisse Paradise" is indicated by a sign on the pedestrian promenade of Saint-Laurent-du-Var.

After crossing the private beach, I arrived in front of a small shed where the team of "Glisse Paradise watersport" received me with a friendly welcome.

Despite my apprehension of this activity, the fear of speed, I chose to test the jet ski without a license.

After completing a declaration prior to the use of a motorized watercraft at sea, I was given a wicker crate in which I was able to leave my belongings with confidence; these are arranged in the shed accessible only by the staff of the nautical base. During the preparation of the jet, I waited a few moments on the platform next to where tables and chairs were at my disposal.

I was then assisted by a qualified instructor. I had never done jet skiing before but I immediately felt confident. The instructor informed me about the safety instructions in a very clear way (do not accelerate before the band of 300 meters ...), gave me a lifejacket, then I set off with him, each on his jet ski.

At first, I was afraid to accelerate and make turns, then, little by little, the excitement took over the apprehension; the monitor encouraged me by making signs to tell me that my behavior was good.

I loved the feeling of freedom and lightness that this activity gave me. I recommend it without hesitation!
