Fujairah and Kalba Water Scooters, Personal Water Craft, Jet Skis

Recently a new water activity has appeared on the Fujairah coast line in which members of the public can hire Water Scooters, also known as Personal Water Craft (PWC) and Jet Skis.

The Al Shatha Scooter Rental is operating on the northern-most beach of Kalba so if you are coming from the Fujairah Corniche, head south towards Kalba and when you go through the roundabout into Kalba it is across the road on the beach, marked by an advertising board.

The Al Shatha Scooter Rental company has commenced with six scooters. The hire charge is 90 Dhs for 30 minutes and 150 Dhs for 60 minutes.

The business is managed by Noushad who can be contacted on 050 5896050 for information, bookings and up-to-the-moment prices. The scooters can be hired every day and in the weekend, bookings are essential.

Water Scooters have been a controversial innovation in many parts of the world because of the danger that they present to swimmers and because of the noise pollution. The municipality at Kalba has zoned this end of the beach for Water Scooters and prohibited swimming to avoid dangerous collisions. The noise seems to be muffled on these new models.
