Hopping aboard a jet ski (or other PWC) is a great way to get on the water for a reasonable price. Once on the water, a PWC’s shallow draft is ideal for cruising along creeks and rivers once on the water. Avoid beaching the PWC, as this could damage the hull or impeller.
A PWC’s powerful jet propulsion engine sets the stage for many wave-jumping and joy-riding fun. Of course, PWC riders should follow established “rules of the road” and practice common courtesy on the water. Trying to swamp sailboats or disrupt quiet anchorages is off-limits.
Lifeguards often use PWCs to reach distressed swimmers quickly. Multi-seat models can bring the swimmer(s) safely back to shore. Law enforcement personnel can immediately deploy PWCs to apprehend suspects and conduct investigations.
Jet skis (and PWCs in general) are ideal for cruising protected waters such as local creeks and lakes. PWC enthusiasts also take their watercraft on extended river jaunts. However, they should stay aware of weather conditions that could create an uncomfortable ride.
Some PWC owners are itching to take their watercraft into the ocean. Original PWC models were essentially lightweight, unstable waterborne scooters. The vessels’ thirsty two-stroke engines and tiny gas tanks meant offshore excursions were off-limits.
Today’s PWCs are larger, heavier, and more stable with larger gas tanks. So yes, riders can technically take their PWCs into the ocean in settled weather.
However, riders can face hazards from weather conditions, other vessels, and obstacles. Riders need navigation skills so they can safely return to the dock.

The term “jet ski” refers to a Kawasaki-branded personal watercraft (or PWC). All PWCs are driven by a jet propulsion engine with an impeller, not a propeller. The impeller sucks water into the engine and ejects it with great force. The combined motion propels the PWC through the water. The PWC’s rider usually sits on a bench seat atop the hull, not inside it like on other boats. The bench seat carries up to four passengers.A stand-up PWC carries a single rider. The rider can begin the trip in a kneeling position and stand up once they’re speeding along.List Your Boat
