PWC illegally jumping the wake of a boat

PWCs must be operated in a responsible manner. Remember, it is illegal to:

  • Weave your PWC through congested traffic.
  • Jump the wake of another vessel unreasonably close to that vessel or when visibility is obstructed.
  • Become airborne while crossing the wake of another vessel and within 100 feet of that vessel.
