-What is the minimum age to rent a jet ski?
In 2024 we lowered our age requirement from 21 to 18 for Jetski tours. However "free ride" rentals are still 21+. Younger riders are required to be a passenger.
-Do I need a driver's license to rent a jet ski?
A valid driver's license is required to rent a jet ski.
-How about a boating license, do I need one to operate a Jetski?
Short answer - If you're born after Jan 1, 1998 you need a valid boating certificate to operate a PWC or any boat. We provide temporary 6 month boating certificate for all renters after taking our short safety video and quiz.
-Do I need to have experience operating a jet ski to rent one?
Beginners are totally welcome. We require every renter to watch videos and pass our basic water safety training and checklist prior to operating a boat or personal watercraft.
-Where do I ride the jet skis?
We have permission from the Army Corp of Engineers to operate out of Tidwell Park.
4950 Pilgrim Mill Road Cumming, GA 30041.
-How many people can go on a Jet ski/Waverunner?
The Jet skis are rated for three people but we only allow two at a time with the max weight limit of 415lbs or a single passenger under 290lbs per jetski,
-What safety measures are in place for jet ski rentals?
Safety measures can include a safety video or training course, personal flotation devices (PFDs) provided, and obeying all boating laws and regulations.
-Will I be held liable for any damages to the jet ski?
Renters may be responsible for any damage caused to the jet ski during the rental period. It's like renting a car. If you get into an accident, or cause any damage to other vessels, docks or person, Lake Lanier Jetski Rental LLC is not liable. You are responsible for your own safety as well as others around you.
-Do you take deposits?
On Rentals yes, on tours no. However Lake Lanier Jetski Rental holds the lowest refundable deposit of $150 per jet ski on the lake. Renting a boat is already expensive, we get it.
-Is gas included?
Only on tours. For rentals we estimate the amount of gas used and remove the amount from your deposit. If you rent a jet ski and the deposit is $150, we subtract from the amount used. However, riding style plays a big factor in the amount of gas used. If you need extra gas then it is your responsibility to get gas at a marina during your rental.
-Are there any discounts available for renting a jet ski?
We may offer discounts for groups, lake houses, weekly rentals, or off-peak rentals. Be sure to ask about any available discounts when inquiring about rental rates, or check dynamic pricing on our online calendar for your specific date. Please keep in mind that prices may go up on busy holidays weekends.
-Do I need to bring anything specific?
Prepare your day as if you went out on the beach. Appropriate swimwear and towels are encouraged. Water shoes are highly recommended and are available for purchase if you don't have any.
-Do you need to make a reservation?
No, but we prefer reservations in advance. Most rental companies on Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona book out. Weekends and holidays get booked up quickly. We have the most Jet Skis in our inventory throughout the area. Walk on rentals need to be made a minimum of two hours before showing up to your appointment. Book before they're sold out!
