FAQ's

  • What the heck is this boating license thing???
    Anyone born on or after January 1st 1988 (at this time approximately anyone under 35) is required by the state of Florida to possess a boating license to operate a jet ski or boat. The purpose of this is for education and safety. Since implementing this law in 2002 boat accidents and deaths have dropped dramatically. Luckily the state allows people on vacation to get a temporary permit.
  • How old do you have to be to rent a jet ski? How old to drive? Requirements?
    To rent a jet ski and sign a legal contract a person must be at least 18 years old with a valid government issued photo ID. Also a person must be a minimum of 14 years old to legally operate a jet ski. Anyone born on or after January 1st 1988 is required to have a boating license by law. Boating license permits are available for purchase online. As long as a legal guardian is present with photo ID, minors between the ages 14-17 with boating license are allowed to drive the jet skis by themselves, but can not take other minors as passengers.
  • How do I keep track of my rental time?
    A watch is provided and attached to the jet ski so you can keep track of rental time.
  • What should I bring with me?
    A valid government photo I.D. (operators only, not required for passengers). Also, apply a reef safe sunscreen before arrival. It works much better that way! If you are going on the jet ski tour you are welcome to bring a small bottle of water and some extra reef safe sunscreen to reapply. Also, if desired, floating straps for sunglasses, bathing suit, towel, and sun protective clothing made for water sports.
  • Can I rent a Jet Ski for a whole day or longer than an hour?
    No. We only rent our Jet Skis for ½ hour and 1 Hour increments. If you want to rent for more than one hour you would have to return the equipment after the original rental time and re-rent filling out a new contract.
  • What is the age requirement for passengers on the jet ski?
    It depends on conditions. Normally when conditions are calm we allow for 4 years old and up for jet ski rentals and 6 years old and up for jet ski tours. When conditions are a little choppy we require strong swimmers 8 and up. We can advise you what is safe at the time of your jet ski rental, based upon weather and water conditions.
