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

PWC may not be operated between sunset and sunrise.

PWC must be operated in a reasonable and prudent manner. It is illegal to operate a PWC in a way that endangers the life, limb, or property of others. Specifically, it is against the law to:

  • Weave your PWC through congested waterway traffic.
  • Maneuver a PWC such that you must swerve at the last possible moment in order to avoid collision.
  • Splash others with your PWC.
  • Jump the wake of another vessel within 100 yards of the vessel.
  • Operate within 25 yards of another PWC when both PWC are operating at a speed of 10 miles per hour or faster.
  • Get in the way of another vessel that is towing a skier.
  • Chase, harass, or disturb wildlife with your PWC.
