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

All drivers must be at least 18 years old and passengers must be at least 3 years old. All riders over the age of 18 must also have a valid State ID or Driver's License while riding the ski per state law. There is dry storage on the ski to hold your items.

How many people can ride a ski?

While all of our jet skis are made to seat 3 people, we limit our rides to 2 people only. 1 driver and 1 passenger. This is to provide the safest and most comfortable ride possible.

Where am I allowed to ride the ski?

Our riding area covers a 2.5 mile radius extending out from the breakwall at the mouth of the river. Riders are to remain at least 300 feet away from the nearby shoreline at all times.

Am I allowed to switch out passengers?

Passengers may be switched out during your ride, but will have to be done at our docks. Riders are not allowed to take the ski to other areas to unload/load passengers. 

How much weight is allowed per ski?

We limit the total rider weight for each ski to 350lbs-375lbs. 

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.
