*AGE REQUIREMENTS AND NORTH CAROLINA STATE LAW*

NORTH CAROLINA STATE LAW STATES…..
Any person born on or after January 1, 1988 must complete a NASBLA approved boating education course before operating any vessel propelled by a motor of 10HP or greater.

To rent a PWC you must be:

  • 18 years old to rent a PWC with Photo ID and proof of Boaters Safety Course

To operate a PWC you must be:

  • 16 years old to operate a PWC with Photo ID and proof of Boaters Safety Course
  • 14 years old to operate PWC with Boaters Safety Course and 18 year old with Photo ID and/or proof of Boaters Safety Course on board

To ride on a PWC you must be:

  • at least 5 years of age and 35lbs. to ride accompanied by Parent or Guardian

ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST HAVE A PARENT OR GUARDIAN PRESENT

ID IS REQUIRED FOR ALL RENTERS/DRIVERS (16+)

MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM

It is for your safety and the safety of fellow watermen that these laws are in place. Please do not inquire or ask staff to alter or break these rules/laws. Any such actions will forfeit your deposit and cause your reservation not to be honored.

 

*PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS*

  • All renters/riders MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM. You assume ALL liability and release Cruisin’ Kens of ANY liability if and when you choose to drive/ride a PWC and cannot swim.
  • It is the renter/riders responsibility to obtain the proper health advice from a physician if you suffer from ANY pre existing health related issues, before you operate a PWC. This is not the responsibility of Cruisin’ Kens to determine whether you are or are not in physically fit shape to operate a PWC.
  • Operating a PWC does in fact involve you being physically fit enough to potentially fall off of the PWC, climb back up on the PWC from the rear if you fall off, flip the PWC back over if it has flipped over or any number of physical situations that may include your physicality to be taken into consideration. Cruisin’ Kens is in no way capable of making those decisions for you nor will we.
  • It is not safe to ride a PWC if you are pregnant. It is Cruisin’ Kens policy to protect the customer and advise against pregnant guests participating on a PWC in any fashion. Participation could harm either the pregnant guest or their baby. Cruisin’ Kens is not responsible if a pregnant individual chooses to participate after being advised against it.
  • We recommend 2 adults per jet ski or 1 adult and 2 children.

 

*AREA RESTRICTIONS

Your riding area is quite large and very beautiful. The intracoastal waterway is filled with beautiful scenery and vast wildlife. While exploring the waterway we have a few rules and few suggestions. Please heed the rules as they could cost you your deposit, your safety and more importantly your life.

  • Do not exit the Intracoastal Waterway. These PWC are not to be taken into the ocean under any circumstances. This will cost you your deposit and hopefully not your life.
  • Do not ‘beach’ the PWC. ‘Beaching’ a watercraft simply means to pull the vessel onto the beach. This is not allowed. This can cause damage to the PWC which will potentially cost you your deposit and quite possibly additional repair fees. Please talk to staff about options if you have a desire to explore the island beach areas of the ICW. There are options we can offer for the safety of the vessel.
  • Do not drive over visible seaweed, trash or other debris in the water. This will ultimately cost you time when you need to pull over to remove that debris from under the PWC. Debris sucked into the PWC could cause functionality issues or overheating. While you are in an area where this is a possibility regardless, please do not intentionally explore areas that are filled with this type of natural seaweed.
  • Please do not engage with the wildlife. While beautiful, they are wild. Most are safe to watch from a distance…Dolphins, fish or maybe sea turtles. Please remember that you are a guest in their water. There is wildlife that IF you encounter, you need to promptly remove yourself. Alligators and sharks can enter this space. While we rarely see this, it can and does happen. Please take this into consideration upon your decision to occupy the waterway. It would be irresponsible of us not to let potential customers know of the risk and give them a course of action if something like that happens. Again, PLEASE do not engage with wildlife.
  • Please educate yourself on the area. Please take the time to look over maps of the Intracoastal Waterway and Topsail Island. This will ensure you have an idea of what the waterway looks like BEFORE you get yourself into a predicament. Our staff will certainly answer any and all questions you may have, but this may not help you once you are out and about.

 

*RESERVATIONS*

We are a RESERVATION ONLY company. All deposits, waivers and preparation recommendations are completed through the website. Please reserve your spot ahead of time to make sure you are prepared.

 

*BAD WEATHER GUARANTEE*
We have no desire to do anything but reschedule or refund your money in the case of inclement weather. Not only is it not safe, it's simply the right thing to do. If rain or bad weather does unfortunately occur and ruin your plans, please rest assured that you will be made whole.

 

*24 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY*

Things happen....Plans change. Within 24 hours feel free to cancel or alter your reservation with a full refund. Inside of 24 hours 50% of your payments will be returned to you, while a no show will forfeit your entire payment.

 

*IDENTIFICATION*

Proper identification is mandatory. NO EXCEPTIONS.

  • To rent a PWC you must have a state issued ID. Your ID will be held by staff during your reserved ride time and returned upon arrival back. Only renters/drivers need to submit their ID upon rental, passengers do not.

 

*ACCEPTED PAYMENTS

We accept all credit cards, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. We also accept Paypal.
