In addition to adhering to all boating laws, personal watercraft (PWC) operators have requirements specific to their vessel.

  • Although it is not required, everyone on board a PWC should wear a U.S. Coast Guard–approved life jacket at all times.
  • PWCs may not be operated between sunset and sunrise unless they are equipped with the proper navigation lights.
