The X-Jetblade from Stratospheric Industries combines “flying jetpacks” with water sports. Now, both Four Seasons Maldives properties and Four Seasons Langkawi (Langkawi is an archipelago in the Andaman Sea off mainland Malaysia’s northwestern coast) offer adrenaline seekers of all ages a half hour of pure thrills, riding the seemingly out-of-this-world contraption. The X-Jetblade package ($155 per person for a 30-minute session) begins with a short orientation before guests head to sea with expert leaders who will offer advice on tricks and techniques.

Propelled by a backpack-like device that is powered by water pressure, participants are shot up to 50 feet in the air. Most first-time participants are encouraged to stay in the 6- to 16-foot range, but experienced fliers and one-of-a-kind daredevils can learn aerial acrobatics and dive beneath the waves before rocketing back up into the air.
