If your looking for an adventure Joe’s Jet Ski in Tamuning, Guam is a fantastic experience! You start in Agana Bay and get to take the jet skis all the way out to Two Lover’s Point in Tumon Bay and back. Perfect for a date, hanging out with friends, or adventuring with the family. They also offer a Military/Local rate which is a huge perk for the military families stationed here.
We were thrilled to receive a complimentary tour to check out the Jet Ski tour, it was nothing short of an amazing adventure! It happened to be our anniversary and of course we chose to spend it checking out a new adventure. There are so many reasons why we had a great time, from the fantastic staff to the experience of driving the jet ski’s out past the reef! We plan to take the kids back to check it out at some point as well.
Bring your swimsuits, sunscreen, towels, etc. There are free lockers to use and changing rooms if needed. We brought clothes to change into afterwards to go grab some lunch. They provide the life jackets, goggles or sunglass straps, & have a waterproof camera to take photos. You can bring your own waterproof camera if you have one as well.
We parked at the Hotel Santa Fe and walked down to the beach, look for the cute beach shack just next to the restaurant. You walk through the restaurant to get to it. We walked past it as there wasn’t a sign (they are working on getting one up) so look for the blue shack and you’re there! If you’re just visiting and staying at a hotel they have a complementary shuttle as well.
Lockers are free and have a key that you’ll wear attached to your life vest, there is staff that stays at the location while your out on your experience. We felt like our stuff was safe while we were out having a great time.
The staff was super friendly and we even got to meet the owners, who were fantastic as well. You have to sign a liability waiver and then get life vests, and all set to go out.
A guide takes you out and you drive following their lead on the 5 miles down to the Two Lover’s Point and back. You’ll make a few stops along the way for some photo opps, and maybe even a few mins of swimming. We were the only ones who went out with our guide during our time so it was very much like a personal tour experience. You do need to follow directly behind the guide getting in and out past the reef as it’s shallow in that area and rocky, if I can do it you can too 🙂
We stopped by Gun Beach for some photos and drove around our guide in circles so he could get some video and photos. You can tell they know what they are doing and I was impressed with the pics.
Then at Two Lover’s Point you stop again to get photos with the point in the background. The guide even took photos with my waterproof camera for me as well. Once you reach the Two Lover’s Point you can change drivers for the ride back.
After that we drove back down to the Gun Beach area and he let us swim for 5 minutes. I’m not gonna lie, I’m so not a ‘ocean’ person so I was a bit scared swimming outside the reef. We seen some big fish and that made me wonder what bigger ones were there that we couldn’t see, LOL! I’d recommend bring goggles or a mask so you can see what’s under you if you get to swim! We used their sunglasses that have a band but they were not waterproof for looking under the water, Mr. B tried.
After swimming we got back on the jet ski and it was my turn to drive. I was a bit nervous about driving as I’ve never drove a jet ski before but it really was super easy! The hardest part was when a boat was heading out and it made some large waves which scared me just a bit but it really wasn’t horrible.
One of the neatest things is the FLYING FISH! I kid you not we seen flying fish! Mr. B thought I was crazy until after we got back to the beach shack and were talking to Joe. Joe said there is a 90% chance you’ll see flying fish on the ride, we seen two! The first one I just thought it was a fish jumping near us, which I thought was weird since were going so fast. The second one I seen fly out of the water and fly back into a wave, it was a sight to see!
After you’ve made it the 5 miles back to the Agana Bay area you’ll find shade and drinks in the beach shack. We were offered a beer, water, & popsicles, while we waited of the pictures to be burned to a disc.
Don’t forget to sign the hut!
I have to say I was really impressed with the photos, we’re not talking about 1 or 2 pics. We got a disc with 49 photos and a video! The guide got some great shots as well and I think it’s a great keepsake for the experience because it’s hard to take good selfies on a jet ski. The water is just an amazing color, I mean check out those blues in the first pic at the top!
We were really impressed with this experience! We’ve already talked about splurging in the near future and taking the kids to go experience it as I think they will have a blast. If you want to take kids know they need to be at least 8 years old to participate. More info below in the Know Before You Go section regarding ages of kids. This really was an ideal way to spend our anniversary and I can say that I recommend doing this at least once while you’re here in Guam!
