Have you ever thought about visiting St Helena and wondered if you could enjoy any type of water sport activities during your stay, knowing that St Helena has one of the world safest oceans surrounding it.
The answer to the question is yes you can enjoy a variety of water sport activities during your visit.
The water temperature varies throughout the year, obviously during the summer months the temperatures are higher and a lot cooler during the winter.
The majority of Jet-skis are privately own but there are a few small tour operators now offering jet-ski hire and there are others interested parties that are preparing to setup Jet-ski rental along with other water sport possibilities.
Other small tour operators are also offering inshore fishing which is slowly becoming a highlight for visitors who would like to explore St Helena’s ocean paradise.
The video below shows a short preview of a locally organise water sport’s afternoon in Rupert’s Bay.
This is a fast growing pastime for the Island community.
If you were thinking of returning or going to live on St Helena you can purchase and ship a jet-ski to the Island, you will be expected to pay customs duties on its value but there is no registration required for using this type of watercraft on St Helena
