When* is the water less choppy in Miami (Biscayne Bay), Miami Beach and Key Biscayne (more suitable for inexperienced jet skiers)?

* Season, month, moon...?

Thank you!

I dont know but the inter-coastal would be a safer bet. Theres no many places to choose from. Have fun!

Actually now during the summer months and early in the morning, I would suggest trying to learn the ropes in the keys first since the waters would be a heck of lot calmer.

The worse times are late fall and winter when we have cold fronts and Highs that make it windy.

Key Biscayne would be a lot calmer then Miami beach another spot would be out of Matteson hammock park, the water is really shallow there so even if you fall off you can get back up easier.

The early morning the water is usually less choppy. The winter months are when its the windiest, so the water is the choppiest during that time. Summer probably is a decent time to learn. Probably the best place to learn to jet ski is in the Keys on the bayside where things are pretty calm.

Avoid the strong currents in Bear Cut and Haulover Inlet if you're inexperienced.

If I were you I wouldn't pay too much attention to it. I heard they charge you according to an average consumed. We used to have an empty house and still paying for the water and every single month got the same amount even when it was empty. After renting it, we realized it only changed slightly... That's a mystery.. U compare your bills with neighbors and you'll have surprises.

angelscorpio, I believe you intended to answer someone else's question, not mine.
