In Focus: Aqua Jetting

We love giving our guests the opportunity to try new activities, and Aqua Jetting is like nothing you have ever tried before. It lets you swim like a fish, dive like a dolphin and swivel like a shark. Give it a go on your next family break with us - it's possibly the most fun you can have in the water.


Name: Aqua Jetting.

Where: All five of our Villages.

Who: Aqua Jetting is open to everyone over the age of 8. Not old enough? Try Mini Jet Skis for an equally splashing good time.

What is it? It’s something totally different. You take hold of one of our special jets (called a Seadoo) and hold it underwater. As you turn it on, the motor propels you forward allowing you to twist, turn and dive like a sea creature.

What if I’m not the best swimmer? Don’t worry, our pool isn’t too deep and there will be a trained lifeguard watching the whole time. You don’t need to be a mini Michael Phelps either as the jet will do most of the work. Having said that, if you are uncomfortable underwater, this may not be the one for you.

Appearance: Turn up in your swimming gear, then the Seadoos – looking like something from a James Bond film – make you as sleek and streamlined as a shark…

Speaking of sharks… There are no sharks in any of the swimming pools at Center Parcs. We promise.

That’s a relief. What’s involved then? Your session will take place before or after the pool opens so a small group of you will have the run of the place. You will be shown how to Aqua Jet safely, and then you will be able to explore the water, zooming around and trying out cool tricks like pirouettes and hairpin turns.

How fast can I go? You won’t be keeping up with any Sailfish (the fastest fish in the ocean, known to hit speeds of 68mph), but you will certainly give even the fastest swimmers a run for their money.

It sounds great! Where do I sign up? You can sign up for all activities via our online booking form.

Do ask our instructor: How do I slow down again?

Don’t ask our instructor: Can we re-enact the last scene of Free Willy?
