CAN I JUST HIRE A JETSKI WITHOUT AN INSTRUCTOR PRESENT?
YES. VOLO NOW OFFERS THE VOLO JETSKI CLUB. THIS MEMBERSHIP BASED HIRE PROGRAM IS A GREAT WAY TO TAKE AWAY A JETSKI FOR A DAY, WEEK OR CHECKOUT OUR SUMMER LONG OPTION WHICH IS A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO BUYING YOUR OWN JETSKI.
Do I have to share my Jetski with someone or can I ride solo?
This is totally down to you, you can either take the option of riding solo on a jetski* or sharing with a friend, partner or family member. When there are two people per Jetski the instructor will give plenty of time for both people to experience the thrill of both driving and being a passenger. *To ride solo on a jetski you must be 16 years or older. Volo has 2 jetskis for clients use. If your booking is for more than 2 people you will be on a shared jetski. We find that most people are more than happy when they come off the water after sharing a ski.
How weather dependent are the adventures?
We can run adventures in most conditions and don’t worry too much if the sun isn’t shining as we guarantee you will soon forget about that when you start driving our jetskis. The only factor that may cause us to postpone the adventures are high winds which can create a dangerous sea state. If we have to postpone your adventure we simply rearrange it for another suitable date.
What do I need to wear?
As your safety is our primary concern we provide you with full safety equipment including a buoyancy aid and wetsuit. All you need to bring is some swimwear for underneath your wetsuit and a towel.
Do I need to be able to swim to book onto an adventure?
Yes, we require all customers (both drivers and passengers) wishing to take part on an adventure to be able to swim and are comfortable in deep water.
If my group is more than 10 can we still take part in a group adventure?
yes, we have had groups of up to 20 people. For groups this size we can offer a discounted rate. see the large group options or get in touch with one of the Volo team to talk about your bespoke group package.
Can I consume alcohol on an adventure?
No, Volo has a strict no alcohol or drug policy and no alcohol or drugs are to be consumed during an adventure, if it is suspected you are intoxicated you will be refused access to the equipment and no refund will be given.
Do I need any previous experience?
No, Volo provides you with all the tuition you need for both jetski and flyboard adventures. we cater to all ages and abilities. we operate at a pace that you are comfortable with and will adjust the tour on the fly to ACCOMMODATE you.
What is a Flyboard?
If you've never seen or heard of a Flyboard we aren't surprised as its such a new invention, only about 3 years old and only 10 of them estimated to be in New Zealand. A Flyboard is simply a water jet pack, it bolts on to the back of the jetski and re directs the flow from the jet unit up a 100ml hose to the board which is connected to your feet. Volo has the latest model which offers more freedom of movement.
