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

Lanyard connecting the safety switch to the operator's wrist
  • Each person riding on or being towed behind a PWC must wear a U.S. Coast Guard–approved personal flotation device (life jacket).
  • If the PWC is equipped with a lanyard-type ignition safety switch, the lanyard must be attached to the person, clothing, or PFD of the operator at all times while the PWC is being operated.
  • It is illegal to operate a PWC between sunset and sunrise unless the PWC is equipped with the required navigation lights.
