Your rental allows for a “free ride”; meaning you are not forced to follow a guide or go in circles around buoys. Once you receive safety and operational instruction, you are free to travel the designated riding area at your own free will. However, if you travel outside of boundaries, you are subject to forfeit the remainder of your rental without refund.
A 5 mile stretch of The Intracoastal Waterway including Snows’ Cut. This is considered the “Bay” or “sound”. Waters are usually pretty calm depending on boat traffic. The Intracoastal Waterway width varies, but at minimum about 200 feet of safe width. Your instructor will go over and point out the boundaries to each operator & group. We have boundaries in place to ensure your rental is safe & enjoyable. Traveling outside of boundaries almost always leads to getting stuck on a sand bar. This is a huge safety issue where you may endure razor sharp oyster shells and a long wait for return of the tide + possibly damaging the watercraft + an additional recovery fee IF we can even get to you. In other words, you are given plenty of freedom in the designated riding area, so please don’t stray! ITS NOT WORTH THE RISK!
YES! We can go jet ski-ing in the Ocean, with permitting conditions & a guide. Ocean riding can be the most awesome experience ever with amazing views and abundant wildlife including dolphins & sea turtles. However, this is not always an option and can be physically demanding. Therefore, it will be at NEJSR staff discretion. IF you are interested in going into the ocean please let NEJSR staff know before making your reservation and we will do our best to accommodate you! Ocean riding is STRICTLY PROHIBITED without a guide. If you go into the ocean without a guide, or permission from NEJSR staff, your rental will be ended immediately without refund.
