In Oklahoma, these are the operating laws for PWC.

  • It is illegal to operate a PWC between sunset and sunrise unless the PWC is equipped with the required navigation lights.
  • PWC must be operated in a reasonable and prudent manner at all times. It is illegal to operate in a reckless manner. Examples of illegal operation are:

      • Any boat ramp
      • A dock or pier
      • An anchored or moored vessel
    • Operating a PWC within 50 feet of a moving vessel
    • Weaving your PWC through congested traffic
    • Intentionally waiting until the last moment to swerve and avoid a collision (“playing chicken”)
  • It is illegal to chase, harass, or disturb wildlife with your PWC.
