  • Chevron down Policies

    A valid Credit Card is required to make a reservation.  Information will be held on file as security deposit through the duration of the rental, though we do not place a hold on the card, the renter would be responsible to pay for any damage to the rented watercraft.


    Renters/drivers must present ID at check-in. We will hold your ID until you return from your rental.


    Tax is 3% additional to posted rates, and applies to all rentals.  Payment will be accepted by any major Credit Card, Visa/Mastercard/Discover/American Express or CASH.  All credit card transactions are subject to additional 3% fee.


    If it is raining at the time of your rental, you will not be charged a cancellation fee.  IF it begins raining during your rental and do not receive your whole time on the water, we will pro-rate it for how long you were out. WE DO NOT CANCEL RESERVATIONS BASED ON A WEATHER FORECAST. IF it forcasted that it will be a complete wash out (70% or more) for the entire day, we may cancel all reservations for the day and we will be in contact with you.


    24 hour cancellation policy for all reservations; reservations cancelled or “no call no shows”  will be charged 50% of their reservation.  We understand that LIFE happens and things come up and will do our best to work with you. IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL, CALL US ASAP. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOUR RENTAL TIME TO CALL & CANCEL.


    Every operator must participate in our orientation on safe operation of the watercraft.  Applicable local and state laws will be covered.  It is the responsibility of the operator to listen and understand instructions and request further explanation if he/she has any questions concerning operation of the Wave Runner.  We want you to have a SAFE and enjoyable time on the water.


    The renter/operator is responsible for any physical damage that occurs while operating the watercraft.  The jet ski will be inspected before & after each use for damage.  Repair for damages will be at renters/operators expense, up to replacement value of the watercraft.  Reimbursement for lost rental time may occur if damage is excessive enough to render the jet ski unrentable until repaired.  If repair cost & lost time are excessive, renter has the option to purchase jet ski at NADA value.   Lost rental time fee is $250 per day until the jet ski repaired and available again for rental.


    Fiberglass damage, dents, scratches or cracks in paint- $100 per inch- occurs from negligent operation, ie. running into things or other watercraft.

    Water intrusion into engine or sunken watercraft- up to $3,000- occurs from flipping jet ski over and not following provided instruction on correcting.

    Damage to Impellar, Wear Ring or Debris sucked into water intake- up to $500 – occurs from operating outside of designated riding area and getting too shallow & sucking sand/debris though jet pump.

    Broken hatches, bumpers, seats, handles, mirrors or any physical part of jet ski – $100+ as quoted

    **** These are only examples. The renter is responsible for total cost of any damage that occurs while jet ski is being operated including other personal property, jet skis & or boats.


    Each Jet Ski is equipped with a watch to insure return on-time. Late return is charged at $5/minute (we don’t want to be jerks, but there are other people waiting for your jet ski and it is disrespectful to them and causes us to have to endure their displeasure when you are late!)
