- Why choose seåQuest Water Adventures?
We are the only company in United States that offers Seabreacher rides, and the only place in Southern California that you can experience the Jetovator and Shred Sled.
- Are they scary or claustrophobic?
The ride can be as mild or wild as you wish. The pilot can give passengers a scary ride if that’s what they’re looking for. Most people find the cockpit to be surprisingly open feeling due to the large panoramic canopy and view ports. If a passenger feels claustrophobic, it is possible to operate the Seabreacher at full speed on the surface with the canopy in its open position.
- Do they leak?
The cockpit and engine bay are kept watertight with the aid of inflatable aircraft seals. There can be minor leaks, but any water in the boat is automatically pumped out via the bilge pumps.
- Can they operate in the ocean or surf?
They’ve been designed to operate in both salt and fresh water and can handle moderate ocean conditions. If the conditions are not suitable and safe we will contact you in advance.
- Is there a way to escape from the inside if necessary?
Yes, there are emergency handles and pull-pins on the outside and inside of the craft so it can always be opened.
- Can they sink?
No. The hull is constructed with enough flotation that it will always remain level and buoyant, even in the event the cockpit and engine bay are fully flooded.in such a situation, the water level in the cockpit will not exceed mid-waist level allowing the water to be pumped out easily and the vessel re-floated.
- What happens if the pilot dives too deep?
The Seabreacher is positively buoyant, it needs space in order to dive, which means the engine needs to be running and the engine requires air. The moment a pilot dives too deep, the engine’s air supply is cut off and the engine loses power; popping the vessel back up to the surface. Sometimes it will pop back up to the surface backwards if you try to dive too deep or too steep.
- How deep can they dive?
5 feet for brief durations, generally they just go a few feet below the surface to keep the snorkel above the water.
- How fast can they go?
55 mph on the surface of the water and about 25 mph underneath.
- Will I get wet?
The Seabreacher cockpit is watertight, making it the perfect year round adventure, even in winter.
- Can I bring my camera/phone?
No, nothing loose in the craft.
- What should I wear?
Loose, comfortable clothes are fine. Be prepared to remove shoes upon request.
- Is there a weight or height restriction?
The Seabreacher cockpit is on the smaller size so we need to make sure all of our passengers are able to get in and out quickly and safely in the unlikely case of emergency. There’s a height restriction of 6”2’, if you’re over that height, one of our team members can assess you and determine your comfortability in the craft.
- Can I drive?
In order to operate the Seabreacher you need to go through a pilot course. Please contact us if you are interested in going through the training we offer.
- How much water pressure and water volume does it use?
Around 1,000 gallons of water flows through the Jetovator every minute. There is an average of 50 psi out of all three Jetovator nozzles, and about 80 psi out of the thrust adapter into the connecting hose. The water thrust coming out of the nozzles is high volume low pressure, so you can safely put your hand under the stream of water.
- How high does it go?
Up to 40 feet. The jet ski operator is in control of the height and will let you go as high or low as you feel comfortable.
- How long is the hose?
The hose is 60 feet. This keeps the Jetovator a safe distance from the jet ski.
- How long does it take to learn to fly?
The average person is up and flying in about 5 minutes or less.
