Jet Skis are very powerful, fast and if improperly used can be dangerous to you and others. Carelessness in the operation of a jet ski with proper gear can lead to bodily injury or death. DO NOT CONSUME ANY ALCOHAL OR DRUGS BEFORE OR WHILE OPERATING A JET SKI. It is dangerous and against Washington State Law. I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participation or else I agree to bear the costs of such an injury or damage myself. I further certify that I am willing to assume the risk of any medical or physical condition I may have or that I may develop while renting or operating a jet ski.

DAMAGE DEPOSIT: A damage deposit of $100-$500 for each rental reservation for Tow aways is due on the day of at pick-up. A hold will be placed on your credit card, and will not be ‘processed’ unless there is damage to the rented equipment. If there is no damage, the hold is automatically released on our end. However, depending on your credit card issuer, it can take up to 1 week to see the funds released back to your card. We will conduct an inspection of the jet ski(s) before they leave with the primary renter of the jet ski(s). At this time we'll take pictures of the jet ski(s), which you are free to do as well. We will do another inspection of the jet ski(s) upon your return to see if any new issues have appeared. We do realize that the jet skis are subject to wear and tear, however if any major damages occurr we will need to charge the primary renter’s credit card to compensate for all damage and repairs. If primary renter paid cash, payment will be required in the same form or credit card for damages. Amount charge will be based upon damage. It is very easy to avoid damage to our equipment if you follow our instructions and operate the watercraft in a safe and responsible manner.
LATE RETURNS: The jet ski(s) you are returning are immediately cleaned and serviced in preparation for our next reservation, sometimes the same day or the very next morning. Consequently, being late can create a very serious problem for us; inconveniencing both our employees and waiting clients. Please plan to return the equipment at least 15 minutes before your scheduled return time. This will help avoid any unplanned delays. Late fees will be assessed at $25 per 15 minutes up to 30 minutes and doubles to $50 per 15 minutes thereafter. Please do everything you can to have the jet ski(s) returned to us by the proper designated time.
FUEL: All rentals typically leave us with a full tank of gas and are expected to be returned with the same or equal amount of gas in which they left. A fuel service fee charge will be carried out to compensate for the missing fuel, $25 fuel service fee for each rental 2 hours or less and a $50 fuel service fee for rentals 4 hours and more.
