James Bond style Jetpack new watersport in the Florida Keys

Key West, Fla. - Wanna fly like James Bond?

Well now you can! Thanks to a new watersport available in the Florida Keys.

Here's how it works...
Participants strap on a water-powered jet pack...tethered to a small unmanned watercraft.
The tiny boat pumps seawater up to the jetpack as the propellant.
It looks similar to the kind James Bond used in "Thunderball."
From there - you can take off, fly, make soft turns, hover and land.
People who have already impersonated the 007, - are loving it!

Angie Mcgregor tried it and says: "It's been my dream since I was a kid to fly. So, it's just amazing. I can't even describe it."

Tuxbury says: "If you want to go high, I was 30 feet in the sky, just buzz down. I love the feeling of jetting up high and coming back down in a circle."

The entire experience is being offered by the company, Jetpack Adventures and the Florida Keys are the first region in the U.S. to offer the experience to travelers.
The cost...$249 for about an hour and a half.
A similar experience will also be offered soon in nearby Marathon.
