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.
What if I don’t have a vehicle set up for towing?
We have tow vehicles available for use for $75.00
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.

A daily rental runs from 7 am to 5 pm.
