Salty Sam's Marina
Fort Myers Beach, Florida
Can I reserve online? Yes, it's recommended as real time availability is displayed at time of booking and
it's available 24/7. Phone calls or walk-ups at our 'Tiki' booth (when manned) are also welcomed. We
require full payment for advanced reservations and also a 24 hour notice of cancellation.
Will we get wet? How wet you get will depend on sea and wind conditions during the exciting 'Hamilton
Spin'. Wear comfortable clothing that you wouldn't mind getting a little wet. If you have somewhere else to
go afterwards, we’d suggest bringing a change of clothes. Depending on the weather conditions and
where you sit, chances are that you’ll get a little spray.
Do we really have to wear life jackets? Yes. Coast Guard regulations demand it. For your comfort, we
provide ski type vests more commonly referred to as type III life jackets.
Can we bring our camera? We highly discourage our customers from bringing anything electronic onto
our rides. Jet Boat Fun LLC is not responsible for any damage to personal property. There is no storage
aboard for personal items. Photo packages are available after each ride.
How many people does the Jet Boat hold? 'Hot Tuna' is approved for up to 11 passengers (average
weight of 185lbs) plus the Captain. If we get a LARGE group, we may have to split the ride.
How old do I have to be? We would prefer passengers be at least 2 feet tall and at least 50 lbs. Minors
must be accompanied by an adult.
How fast do we go? 'Hot Tuna' is capable of speeds near 60mph. However, we travel between 25-35
mph. It's the maneuverability that impresses, not so much the speed. You'll enjoy it, trust us!
Where are you? Please click on our directions tab above. Free parking at Salty Sam's Marina, Parrot Key
Caribbean Grill, and Big Game Sports Bar.
Why can't I go at the exact time I want? We are a high speed thrill ride that burns a lot of fuel and
requires a highly trained captain and support staff. We have to fill the boat close to capacity and cluster the
rides together so our staff and captain can operate efficiently. Book early as the first ride of the day is
based on the first booking. First come first served.
What are your hours? We try to answer phones 9am-5pm 7 days a week. Our schedule varies seasonally
and is posted on the home page of this website. Special arrangements can be made for large parties of 8
or more. Reservations required. Closed X-mas and Thanksgiving.
Why did you leave without us? If you don't show before your scheduled ride, we leave you behind and
charge full price. Just like the airlines, the jet boat doesn't wait for you. It is inconsiderate of you to delay
the ride for other passengers and we don't allow it. Traffic, sickness, aliens, your dog....don't even try it!
It's August, why can't I book a 3pm ride? During the summer months we get thunderstorms every
afternoon between 2-3pm. We usually book the first ride around 12 noon and after we fill that ride, we will
open up either an 11am or 1pm ride. We shut down at the first site of lightning near our operating area or if
it is raining.
