PWC Courtesy

Be a courteous PWC operator.

Avoid congregating with other PWC operators near shore, which increases annoying noise levels.

Avoid making excessive noise near residential and camping areas, particularly early in the morning. Excessive use in one area can be an irritant to people who are there to enjoy a quiet and relaxing time.

Avoid maneuvers that cause the engine exhaust to lift out of the water because that increases noise levels.

Do not modify your engine exhaust system if it increases the noise. Improperly modified exhausts will not make your PWC faster and may raise the noise to an illegal level.
