Want to Walk on Water? Fly the JetLev at St. Pete Beach!

By: Lauren Tjaden


I think I have just discovered the perfect cup of crazy – and I want to try it so bad I can taste it!

The TradeWinds Island Grand, a beachfront resort snuggled against the Gulf of Mexico on St. Pete Beach, just announced that starting this April, you can snag a flight on the new JetLev. It’s a water-propelled jetpack that soars up to heights of 30 feet at 30 miles per hour.

Major-fun-factor! Check out the video!

TradeWinds is the first on the Sunshine State’s west coast to offer flights aboard these custom-designed packs. You go out into the Gulf, and then fly over or even walk on the water. (I knew I could do that!) Each JetLev session is 45 minutes, with a ride time of 30 minutes. The cost is $250 for hotel guests and $285 for non-guests. You have to be a minimum of 18 years of age.

I’m calling them now…

I just had heard about the jet pack by many of my freinds and relatives , one day in my office one of my friend was watching the jet pack video . Even i watched that video After watching that video i became too excited and i had decided that i have to try this water sport. As i was too excited i even told my family to come with me . We went to the ZainoJet www.zainojet.com
to try jet pack.The crew was very informative and patient. I was able to get out of the water within a min of getting in and flew around for about 30 min befor my first fall into the water. During my flight the instructor saw my comfort level and walked me through a few additional tricks to make the experience more enjoyable. After me my family members also took the experience of amazing jet pack.
If you have any desire to fly or just get excited at the word jet pack then you must try this. It is a bit pricey but defiantly worth the experience.I hope to see this watersport expanded in the coming years!!
