Personal watercraft (PWC or jet skis)

These machines are fast and exciting but need to be handled with care and attention.

Personal watercraft are an increasingly popular recreational craft. Operators shouldm be aware that regulations governing personal watercraft are the same regulations that govern any power driven vessel. Operating a PWC at speed from the shore is only permitted within the designated PWC reserved areas in our harbours and lakes. At all other times the 5 knot rule applies. 

See the harbour and lake guides for maps and more detail on where these areas are located.
