Come explore the beauty of the Great River Road from the water and enjoy the summer breeze on our personal watercrafts. Your jet ski rental will add a whole new dimension to your day. Not only will you have the best view of the Alton bridge and skyline, but you can also jump the waves in the choppy Mississippi water or motor out to the Playpen Area to enjoy a smooth exhilarating ride, pushing your watercraft to the max.

Jet Ski Rentals

Experience nature from the seat of your jet ski and relish in the 1000 cc’s of Yamaha Jet Ski power; it’s a rush that can’t be beat. Our options ensure you’ll find a rental that perfectly fits your budget and schedule to cruise the waters at your leisure*.

Jet Ski Tours

Ride our Jet Skis and catch a glimpse of the historic St. Louis waterways and the Gateway Arch, Grafton, IL wineries, or the Historic St. Charles, MO riverfront. These are great tours that everyone will enjoy. We'll visit the Alton, Illinois Dam and wave "Bon Voyage" as we ski past all the barge ships. It will be an exciting day in the sun for everyone. We know that the next time you think of the Great River Road and the mighty Mississippi River, you'll think of River Road Watersports and the day you had the ride of your life! Most tours will depart from our Grafton, IL location, however, departure locations may change depending on water levels and tour destination.

Watercraft Insurance Protection Policy:  At the time of the Jet Ski rental, renters will have the opportunity to purchase Jet Ski Insurance for $25. If purchased, no damage security deposit is required and renters will only be liable for damages in excess of $500. However, if renters opt out of the rental insurance coverage, a $500 cash deposit or a valid credit card hold of $500 will be held until the watercraft is returned. If damage to the vessel does occur, the full $500 will be held immediately until all repairs are complete. At that time, a credit will be issued for repairs less than $500.  Whether the Jet Ski insurance is purchased or a security deposit is held, the Jet Ski driver is responsible for damages in excess of $500.
