Towing a Person With a Vessel
Vessel operators towing a person(s) on water skis, aquaplanes, kneeboards, inner tubes, or any similar devices must do so safely and responsibly.
- It is illegal for vessels to tow a person(s) on water skis or any other device during the period from one hour after sunset until one hour before sunrise.
- Everyone engaged in water-skiing—the operator, the observer, and the towed person(s)—must conduct themselves in a safe manner that does not endanger other persons or property. Reckless operation includes cutting close to another boat, a dock, a person, or the shoreline.
