 Boating Tip – Personal Watercraft (PWC) 

  • Drivers of PWCs must follow the same “rules of the road” as other boaters, including passing and observing no wake and idle zones.
  • If multiple PWCs are riding together, maintain sufficient distance between PWCs to avoid hitting anyone who might fall off a PWC
  • Each PWC should have the proper safety equipment, including a signaling device such as a whistle tied to a life jacket
