What are the operating requirements for Jet Skis / PWCs?
You must be at least 18 years of age. Be 16 or 17 and possess a Utah PWC Education Certificate. Contact Utah State Parks and Recreation boating hotline at 1-800-743-3792 for PWC course information. See Operator Requirements below.
What other charges can I expect for Jet Ski / PWC rental?
We require authorization of $500.00 per unit on a credit card at the time of pick. That is held until the unit is returned and checks out without damage and full of fuel.
Can you launch and retrieve the PWC for us?
Sorry, no. National Park Service requires that only the renter launch and retrieve the watercraft.
What if I have to cancel?
Cancellations made more than 10 days prior to check-in will result in a $20.00 processing fee. Cancellations made between 10 and 4 days prior will result in the loss of your $75.00 deposit. If you cancel within 3 days of check-in or are a “no show”, you will be charged one full day rental.
What does it take to make a reservation?
$75.00 on a credit card will reserve the unit for you. See our reservations page for details.
What are the hours of a rental?
A daily rental runs from 7 am to 5 pm.
