Jetski / Personal Water Craft

Bristol's premier Jetski / PWC lake

Our main goal is to offer an unmatched, Safety first, Jetski / PWC experience in Bristol. Our lake is small by Jetski / PWC standards, but it is well laid out and our waterfront restaurant and cafe offer hot and cold food and drinks. Spectators can sit on the banks or walk around on our dedicated paths, taking in both nature and the sights and sounds of Jetskis / PWC’s blasting around the set course.

How does Jetski / PWC work at West Country Water Park?

When and How long can I Jetski / PWC?

Our offering for the 2023/24 season is simple.

The West Country Water Park will initially limit ten jet skis on the lake at any time, with 3 in motion, so we can gauge how safe and manageable this is. For example, seven craft are stationary with 3 riding around at a time. This will be further clarified in your induction.

Sessions are charged per rider.

Passengers are allowed at an additional charge per passenger.

Which Jetskis, Personal Water Craft can be used

Stand up - Sit down - Kneelo

We would advise against using Jetski / PWC with engine sizes over 1200cc; however, we are taking a pragmatic view that riders taking passengers and or, experienced riders may enjoy our lake safely on larger craft. Our team will monitor the sessions and should anyone be deemed unsafe; our lifeguards will stop the session until the rider has left the water.

We are considering separate sessions for Stand-ups and sit down but for now have created a zone for stand-up tricksters which is separate from sit downs.


Jetski / PWC FAQ's

    Yes. We provide all Jetski / Personal Water Craft users with life jackets. You must use our life jackets unless yours complies with UK standards applicable to this level; EN 393 or ISO 12402 – 5.

    We do not currently offer Jetski or Personal Water Craft hire.

  • Can I turn up and ride if I am a member?

    You must book online to avoid disappointment. We only allow 10 people on the water at a time, therefore only 10 people per session can book.

  • Can I pay a day member rate?

    We currently do not offer day memberships.

  • How fast can I go?

    We do not have a predetermined top speed. The lake is only 200m at its longest point, and as such most current Jetskis / PWC cannot reach their advertised top speeds, especially when it is busy as it gets choppy.
