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

In Mississippi, these are the operating laws for PWC.

  • PWC should not be operated in a manner that requires the operator to swerve at the last possible moment to avoid a collision. Furthermore, a PWC should not jump the wake of another vessel recklessly or unnecessarily close to that vessel.
  • It is illegal to operate a PWC while you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • It is illegal to chase, harass, or disturb wildlife with your PWC.
  • It is also strongly recommended that PWC are operated during daylight hours only.
