Three people on PWC

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

  • Everyone on board a PWC must wear a USCG–approved Type I, II, or III PFD at all times.
  • PWC must have either a self-circling capability or be equipped with an engine cut-off switch. An operator of a PWC equipped with an engine cut-off switch must attach the lanyard of the switch to his or her person, clothing, or PFD.
