Keyport and Jersey City are both beautiful locations worth enjoying.
What if I want to go out for more than 60 minutes on a rental?
If our 60 minute jet ski option isn't enough for you, then just book back to back sessions (for instance, the 1pm and then also the 2:30pm or any back to back sessions from the same location) this way you can come back in, rest and relax for a moment, then get back out into the action! If not, choose a tour option so we can guide you around the the amazing local waterways for a jet ski cruise you wont forget.

Yup! For just $30 in Keyport or $40 in Jersey City, you can have a passenger and even switch off with them as long as they're above the age of 16. The passenger age limit is 10 years old. You may add a passenger at the time of arrival. ID's are required for everyone.

Nope, knowing how to swim isn't necessary. You will be on the water with a life jacket and a professional who can make sure you're comfortable and safe.
How old do I need to be to rent a Jet Ski/Waverunner? What are the age requirements?
New Jersey State Law states that a PWC rental business (Jersey Jet Ski) must not rent to anyone under the age of 16 years. This is the person who is going to be the responsible party for signing the rental agreement and the liability waiver. The “renter” must show a valid driver’s license and provide a major credit card. However if the “renter“ choses they can allow anyone 16 years old or older to operate as long as they understand that the “renter” is the person responsible for any damage!
How many people can ride on a Jet Ski?
Each Waverunner/Jet Ski is sized for 2 people, or 350 pounds maximum before balancing the jet ski at low speed becomes a little more challenging.
What happens if I arrive late to my appointment or have to reschedule?
Due to tight scheduling arriving late may result in a costly rescheduling fee (available on our Requirements Page). Please call us if you are running later than your reservation time, which you MUST arrive no later than the start time of your session, or earlier if you need extra prep time preparation.
Should I arrive early to my appointment?
YES!!!!! YOU MUST ARRIVE AT LEAST 5 to 10 MINUTES EARLIER THAN YOUR RESERVATION TIME FOR JET SKIING, and 30 MINUTES EARLY FOR BOATING. Parking may take a couple of minutes, and we have a ZERO TOLERANCE FOR LATE ARRIVALS since there MAY be others in your session's group. The orientation begins shortly after arrival and You will have to be processed and the guide will be conducting a safety orientation prior and your group will be going out on the water on your scheduled time, is is very important you arrive early (RATHER THAN LATER) so you can leave at your schedule time.
FOR BOATERS: COME 30 MINUTES EARLY TO NOT DISRUPT YOUR SESSION TIME.
Can we take the Jet Ski/Waverunners anywhere we want?
Nope! But if you want to go beyond our rental zones, we have great tours! You cannot not go off on your own, this is strictly forbidden. New Jersey law requires that any Jet Ski rentals must ride with our highly trained escorts/guides in a designated area (they are there watching over for your safety) This means that each trip has a personal guide along with them for the duration of your adventure, who’ll also be happy to help you get familiar with jet skiing. Please note we do not allow riders to return to the dock during their 30 or 60 minute rental to switch operators. You may switch operators (while in the riding area) at the supervisor's discretion.
Can we take the boat wherever we want?
Unfortunately without having your own boating license and experience boating you are limited to driving the boat in the Raritan Bay area, which is a beautiful and large scenic area with distant views of NYC, the banks of Staten Island and New Jersey, as well as local beaches (which you cannot pull up on) and you cannot ride near the jet ski rental zone for the hazards involved with being too close to other boaters/jet skiiers with little experience being too close to other vessels.
Do I need a driver for the boat? What if I never operated a boat?
You do not need a driver since we will give you details on how to operate, even if you have not driven a boat before you can legally operate under us. AS LONG AS YOU ARE OVER 21. HOWEVER, if you are not competent with how to operate a boat, it is suggested that you jet ski, or go out with a driver on your first awesome trip to learn the what new boaters should learn, almost like an actual boating course on the water, to have a safe and fun time on the water.
What is the Supervisor or Guide for?
The guide (if a tour) or supervisor (if a rental) will begin with a safety orientation prior your allotted time session. Our guide is there for your safety and to escort you to and from the designated riding area. Once there, they will be on hand to provide any assistance that you may need. When your time draws to an end, they will lead you back to the dock and assist you with safely docking your ski.
Should I tip the guides/instructors?
It is customary to tip the guides/instructors. Our employees are mostly first responders who go far beyond the commonly tipped bartenders and waiters to make sure your experience is amazing. It is very common for them to be given gratuity in a similar way. THEY REALLY BECOME FRIENDS TO MANY OF OUR GREAT RETURNING CUSTOMERS.
Do you provide life jackets?
Yes, we provide both smaller and adult size life jackets. But please bring extra small children sized life jackets if you plan on taking kids under 10 on a boat, they must wear the jacket the whole time on the water. There will be 12 universal jackets in the boat, let us know if you have specialized life jacket size requests.
Do I need a Boat License to rent a Jet Ski in New Jersey?
No, that is why we must have a safe riding area designated for just Jet Ski/ Waverunners, but be sure to have some kind of proper valid ID. You will operate under our company's license and permit.
Do the jet skis return to where we left from?
Yes, the jet skis alway return to their starting point.
How fast can I ride my Jet Ski/ Waverunner?
That’s completely up to you! Once you are in the riding area you can go full throttle 55+ MPH, but must always operate at safe speed depending on many conditions. One person riding solo vs. 2 people riding on a Waverunner will determine the maximum speed also. You don't have to go fast of course, but if you want to, our exclusive riding area allows enough freedom to keep your machine full-throttle for the entire ride!
Why do I need to leave a deposit?
This is part of the Damage Waiver Agreement that you will need to fill out and sign when you rent from us. Each jet ski requires a $250.00 cash or credit or debit card deposit in case of damages that you and or someone else causes to our equipment while in your care. We can hold the card on file for this and won't charge it unless there is damage. Damages can exceed this amount so listening carefully to the instructor prior to departure will make for a clear understanding of the hazards, this is detailed further on our requirements/policy page. This is also listed in the waiver which is sent to you in the booking's confirmation email.
However for boats, a $500 card scan is made as a security deposit. Damages can exceed the cost of the security deposit and fees may apply, such as a clean up fee if it is left dirty and a gas fee or driver free.
What happens if I damage one of the Jet Skis?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions. That's what the deposit is for, our guides/supervisors will give greater details prior to departure on how to avoid causing damages. Your deposit will be held until the actual cost of the repairs has been determined. A mechanic can be contacted to estimate the damages if a manager cannot assess it. Typically damage the size of a credit card will cost $250 to repair (cracked fiberglass) at a minimum, and expenses can also be caused from sucking debris into the impeller (rare occurrence) or internal damage caused from reckless behavior. Instructions on how to avoid damage will be explained thoroughly prior to departure..
When is Jersey Jet Ski open for business?
We will be open depending on the weather from March 15th until as late as December 15th! Weather depending, but mostly open 7 days a week! We are now offering an amazing virtual reality experience for any day or rainy day fun or fun before/after jet skiing.
How long is each trip and what times are available to rent?
Jersey Jet Ski offers daily rentals starting at 8am (sometimes earlier depending on the time of sunrise) from two locations. Trips depart as schedule (click book now on homepage to see the schedule) and include the full 30 minutes or hour. Our last runs typically go out an hour and a half before the sunset.
How do I make a reservation?
The best way is to BOOK ONLINE and see all availability. This is the best way to guarantee a reservation. Please feel free to call us with any further questions that have not been addressed here.
What if I want to make a reservation for a group?
If assembling a large party or multiple jet skis, it's easy to do right over our website after clicking book now then selecting a location, day and event. When viewing an event, you can see how many jet skis are still available then either book them yourself for the group and forward them the confirmation email, so they can see these details and fill out the waivers. A screen shot of the confirmation that they filled out their waiver will help for a more streamlined check-in. You can also coordinate booking your group reserving jet skis individually as well, which works well if planning far enough ahead and sharing the booking link. Be mindful of timing since sell outs do happen quickly if the weather is nice, or often times a few days a head of schedule for weekends or holidays.
What should I wear?
Please wear beach or gym attire. Shoes aren't necessary while riding either and can be left on the dock. If the weather is less than ideal, wearing longer sleeve gym attire or a waterproof windbreaker can make for more comfort.
Are there rules on the water and do I have to behave a certain way on the Jet Ski?
The guides will go over everything during their thorough safety orientation such as how you are guided to and from the rental zone and how to avoid reckless behavior that may result in your session being brought to an early, non-refundable end. We also implement a strict "Strike" policy, meaning by the second reprimand, you will be guided back to the marina and your session will be forfeited.
Will there be somewhere I can secure my valuables?
Yes, we have lockers where you can secure your valuables. But if possible, keep as much as possible in your vehicle besides what each guest needs to take with you to check-in.
What should I bring with me or my group?
This is very important and detailed further on the requirements page of this site and in the confirmation email. But as a quick break down:
1) Photo ID's for everyone
2) $250 Security Deposits for each jet ski.
3) Filled out "waiver confirmation emails" for each participant (link can be shared from confirmation email).
4) 5-10 Minute Prior Arrival (to assure an on time departure and cover any excess time needed to prepare your group).
Is there parking at the marinas?
Yes, we have parking at Browns Point Marina in Keyport for free (to the left of the main office building in the front of the marina, next to our office behind it to the left.) and in our Jersey City location there is $5 parking to park in Liberty Harbor Marina (when telling security you're there to jet ski) and afterward.
What about transportation to these locations?
Both of Jersey Jet Ski's locations are highly accessible by car. Our Keyport location (357 West Front Street, Keyport NJ) is just a 3 minute drive from exit 117 on the Garden State Parkway, and our Jersey City location is just 10 minutes from the Holland Tunnel. For people interested in taking a fast ferry from Manhattan or a path train, look no further than Jersey Jet Ski's Jersey City location (37 Marin Blvd, Jersey City NJ) since the train and ferry are a very short walk away. Basically in the same parking lot as our Jersey City check-in location.
Please read the "Requirements" page for further information, as well as refund/rescheduling details. Feel free to call/text (732) 201-8266 or email JerseyJetSki@gmail.com to other Jersey Jet Ski rental questions. Jet Ski New Jersey and New York Like Never Before!
