Jet Ski Safety Tips
We’ve put together a few simple jet ski safety tips that will take you a long way:
Jet Ski Safety Features
All our jet skis come equipped with a "Kill Switch" They attach to your wrist with a lanyard, and attach securely with Velcro. Should you become separated from you ski, the engine will immediately be shut off, enabling you to get back on it!
Safety Life Vests – Use Them
We provide all the safety equipment you’ll need to get the most out of your jet ski experience. Primary among these is the life jacket. They’re designed to keep you afloat, and they will. Don’t ever take them off when you’re riding a jet ski.
Don’t Use Alcohol & Drive a Jet Ski
Just as with driving a car, piloting a jet ski takes skill and concentration. Alcohol can quickly diminish your situational awareness, and limit your vision, and decrease you reactionary response time. Drinking and driving a jet ski is not a good idea!
Get to Know Your Ski
Even if you’ve been on a jet ski a thousand times, there are different makes and models of jet skis. Take a few minutes to get used to the way the ski you’re on accelerates, turns, slows, etc… before simply jumping on and going as fast as you can! There’s always time for that!
Overconfidence = Danger
A rogue wave, or driver mistake can throw you off a jet ski! Don’t let yourself feel invincible. Be responsible and respect the ocean, and the jet ski you’ll be on.
It is Bay Point Water Sport’s intentions that you have a fun and SAFE time while enjoying any of our activities on the water.
