FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How old do you have to be to drive or ride as a passenger?

We require all drivers to be at least 21 years old and passengers can be as low as 5 years old. All drivers must have a valid driver's license or State ID on them while operating the ski. 

How many people can ride a ski?

Our jet skis are made to seat 3 people comfortably but we do require that the total passenger weight be less than 400 lbs.

Where am I allowed to ride the ski?

Our riding area extends 5 miles in all directions from the Lorain Breakwall. Riders are to remain at least 300 feet away from the nearby shoreline at all times.

Am I allowed to switch out passengers?

Riders are not allowed to take the ski to other areas to unload/load passengers. You are also not able to "go out and come back" to switch out passengers.

How much weight is allowed per ski?

We limit the total rider weight for each ski to 400lbs.

Is there anyone out on the water to help us if we need it?

All rentals are escorted up the river by a member of our staff on a chase ski and will remain on the lake for the duration of your ride. Their job is to act as a lifeguard should you need assistance getting back on your ski in the event of a fall, keep track of time remaining on your rental, and provide a line of communication to shore in case of emergencies. 

Do we need to bring our own life vests?

We will provide you with a life vest. We have vests that fit all ages and sizes. 

What happens if we are running late for our reservation?

All clients are to arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled booking. For example, if you are booked for 1PM then you must arrive no later than 12:30PM. The goal is to have you on the water by 1PM. Therefore, you need to arrive early to take care of your paperwork, lesson/test, and lifevest fitting. Anyone who arrives more than 10 minutes late will be holding up the rest of the rentals at that time slot. You will not be able to go out and you will lose 50% of your deposit. 

Can we cancel or reschedule our reservation?

As long as you give us notice at least 24 hours in advance of your booking, we will refund 100% of your deposit or be happy to move you to another day. If you try to change your reservation with less than 24 hours till your reservation arrival time, you will lose 50% of your deposit.

What is the deposit to rent a jet ski?

We require all jet ski rentals to be paid upfront at the time of your reservation. There are no additional fees or security deposits added to the cost. You will only owe the $150 per ski plus tax.
