Just the Gist
We get it: when it comes to riding safely and responsibly, we’ve got a lot to say. So if you just can’t wait to get out and ride, here’s the quickie version of what you need to know before you suit up.
Must be 16 years old to drive a Sea-Doo
Alcohol & Drugs
Never consume alcohol or drugs before, or while using a Sea-Doo
Always wear a coast guard approved Personal Floatation Device (PFD) and when driving, wear wetsuit bottoms or neoprene shorts
Don’t show reckless operating behavior, including unnecessarily endangering life, limb, and property
Tether Cord/Safety Lanyard
When operating a Sea-Doo, always have a tether cord attached to your PFD or wrist (wrist strap required) and keep it free from the handlebars
Distance from shore
Whether you're heading in or cruising out, always maintain a slow speed until you're in a clear area, away from shore.
Play well with others
Minding your P's and Q's on the water is a great way to earn the admiration of other boaters as well as those on the shore. Remember, noise carries across the open water.
