PWC jumping wake of a boat; prohibited sign on the image

It is illegal to operate a PWC between sunset and sunrise, even if the PWC is equipped with proper navigation lights.

PWC should not be operated in a reckless or negligent manner. Examples of unsafe operation are:

  • Turning a PWC sharply so as to spray another person or vessel
  • Operating at a rate of speed and proximity to another vessel so that either operator must swerve at the last minute to avoid collision
  • Jumping or attempting to jump the wake of another vessel within 100 feet of that vessel

It is illegal to chase, harass, or disturb wildlife with your PWC.
