Zapata Racing introduces a “Human Dolphin” watercraft

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a human dolphin! Well, perhaps not exactly, but the France-based water sports company Zapata Racing has come up with what some a referring to as the “Human Dolphin” watercraft. One part jet-ski, two parts ingenious engineering — check it out for yourselves and let us know if you’d spend 4,900 EUR / 6,500 USD for a chance to fly through the water like a dolphin.

An active ocean advocate, VP of U.S. Freediving, a multi-agency scuba instructor and AIDA judge, Francesca also serves as the Editor-At-Large here at You can usually find Francesca diving in the kelp, hanging out at the Farallones with sharky friends, or trying to improve upon her own PB’s.


  1. Um speaking for the residents of the ocean, It seems rather destructive and wasteful. Too many attachments and too prone to failure. I see it as a rich man’s toy. Hope you do well with the tiny percentage of those that will own one. Looks to me like another fad.
