It is a challenge has never been attempted before but Mark McDermott, Chris Annett and Uel McClintock are planning to do it for a good cause.
The trio are hoping to raise money for two charities - the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund and Cancer Research UK.
"We're going to attempt to ride 350km on three stand-up jet-skis," said Mr McDermott, who is organising the bid to traverse Ireland's longest waterway in two days.
"The skis are race craft for short course, maybe a mile or so - they're not designed for distance, that's what your bigger jet-ski's are for, the two and three seaters.
"So physically it will be very demanding."
This will be the ultimate test of endurance - while jet-skis do have seats the riders will be standing all the way, a distance of 220 miles.
Mr McClintock said they are not aware of the feat ever being attempted before.
"Nobody's ever been foolish enough," he said.
"It's going to be very, very physical and demanding to try to do this. It's a total one-off - nobody anywhere in the world has been foolish enough to try this."
Mr Annett added: "It will be very uncomfortable, sore on the back, the shoulders and the hands will be sore but if we can take a break in the water for a while hopefully it will be enough to see us through."
A special celebration is planned in Belleek on Friday to welcome the team back.
