• All Rentals include gas.

• A damage deposit is required from each individual operator. It is not allowed to cover another person’s deposit except for spouse or children. The damage deposit is $500 on a credit card OR $1,000 on a debit card. Each deposit is released when the jet ski is returned with no damage, but may take several days to reflect on your statement. A damage deposit can not be split on multiple cards.
