Local business owner continues tradition to provide free Jet ski & Segway rides in memory of his father
Locals and tourists alike can enjoy complimentary one hour Segway and Jet Ski adventures for Fathers Day at Jet Ski FL & Segway Fort Lauderdale. Owner Jon Rosen, 29, started this tradition five years ago in memory of his father, Rick Rosen, who unexpectedly passed away from a heart attack in Nov. 2009. He honors his dad by paying it forward and keeping his spirit alive.
“When I first started the tradition, it was initially just complimentary rides for dads and their families,” Jon said. “But I realized that there are plenty of people like me who are not as fortunate to have their father in their life, so I decided to make this for everyone, with or without a father.” Jon started the tradition five years ago and now includes jet skiing with his new business Jet Ski FL. Jon recently received a 2019 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award for providing reputable, safe and fun outdoor Fort Lauderdale activities. Jon said he will continue to do this every year to help provide fun and positive experiences in peoples lives.
Those who prefer to jet ski will enjoy a one-hour ride along the intracoastal waterways by the million dollar mansions and mega yachts. Those who prefer a Segway adventure will enjoy a one-hour ride along downtown Fort Lauderdale’s scenic riverwalk and residential neighborhoods. A hands on training session and guide is included to make sure everyone has a fun and safe experience.
Reservations are required for each activity and the capacity is limited. Jon recommends to reserve at least 48 hours in advance as reservations will fill up quickly.
