Towing a Person With a Vessel
Vessel operators towing a person(s) on water skis, aquaplanes, surfboards, inner tubes, or any similar devices and the persons being towed must do so safely and responsibly.
- Operators of vessels towing a person(s) must maintain a reasonable distance from other vessels, people, and property so as not to endanger the life or property of any person.
- Stay at least 100 feet away from other vessels.
- Keep the skier out of shallow water and away from swimmers.
- If you are towing a skier with a PWC, the PWC should be rated for at least three people—the operator, the observer, and the retrieved skier.
