The Yamaha SeaWing Underwater Sea Scooter which will be fully reviewed below was actually one of my first sea scooter experiences. I was on a vacation with my wife and we rented a couple of Yamaha SeaWings for a few hours. I loved the look of it, and the power was awesome. I liked it that much that I went ahead and purchased my own once back home. My wife and I have had so many wonderful weekends using this exact model so I’m very confident in its capabilities.

More Useful Information
The dual thrusters on the Yamaha SeaWing can produce up to 12kg (26.5lbs) of thrust which can propel and pull you through the water at up to 6.5km/h (4mph) 6.5km/h might not sound like much but trust me it feels fast. Fast enough for that adrenaline rush and slow enough to enjoy your surroundings such as like the sea life beneath you while snorkeling.
With 45 mins of continuous run time, you will get plenty of time to explore and have fun. When the lights come on and it’s time to recharge it simply pop out the removable battery and plug in the charger. Go have lunch, have a nap or read a book for an hour or so and you are good to go again… Perfect))
Premium Lithium-Ion Battery With Fast Charger
With an awesome 45 minute continuous run time and a 1-2 hours fast charge you can enjoy a full day out with minimal downtime. Top tip. Buy an extra battery for uninterrupted Sea Scootering fun ))
The SeaWing Really Packs A Punch
Dual propellers and a state of the art battery system produces a propulsive force of up to 12 kg. Being pulled through the water with graceful ease has never been so much fun))
Comes equipped with a child lock and protective netting keeping little fingers safely out of harm’s way.
To sum up
My personal experience with this model was really good. I found the overall look, feel, power and price point were all spot on. After looking on amazon and reading over the reviews I was surprised to see a few negative reviews, but this is the case with most products especially newer technology. IMHO some of the negative reviews are almost certainly something the user is doing incorrectly, such as charging the battery far too much or not letting the battery fully run out before placing on charge again.
Lithium-Ion batteries have memory and there are specific instructions on getting the very best out of your battery. Follow the instructions and do as the manufacturer recommends and I can almost guarantee you will have a great experience with your Sea Scooter.
I would personally give this Sea Scooter 4.3 out of 5 stars which is pretty damn good as I have tested a lot of Sea Scooters.
