Hang out on the beach long enough and the jet ski vendor will come to you. If you say No, they will give you a "No problem, man" and leave you alone. But if you seem interested, they'll start offering you a deal. If you hold out, they'll lower the price.
The going rate on Cable Beach is $50 for half an hour. I paid $40 for half an hour. Ask for "Rocket Man" from Cable Beach Aquasports. His real name is Levon.
The jet ski we rented would hold two. I have no idea how fast it went but it gave my teenage boys a thrill. We did get it airborne once or twice.
For reference, I was told the rate at Atlantis/Paradise Island is $60 for half an hour.
