Sean Daly goes for gravity defying ride on the 'JetLev'

ST. PETE BEACH, Fla. - A local beachfront resort is now offering one heck of a ride.

It's called the JetLev - a water propelled jetpack that soars up to heights of 30 feet at 30 miles per hour.

The exhilarating experience takes riders into the Gulf of Mexico, allowing them to fly over or even walk on the water.

ABC Action News contributor Sean Daly took the JetLev for a test run at the TradeWinds Island Grand on St. Pete Beach.

Each session is 45 minutes, with a ride time of 30 minutes.

The cost is $250 for hotel guests and $285 for non-guests. Riders must be at least 18 years of age.
