Jetskis and Personal Watercraft Safety

Safety information is available from the Harbour Office, where staff are available to answer your questions.

Please use your PW with consideration and follow the advice below:
Check local weather conditions and tides. At certain states of the tide the currents are very strong in the harbour entrance and at the launching sites.
  • Always wear a buoyancy aid
  • Always use your ’killchord’
  • Make sure you have some means of attracting attention if you need help
  • Tell someone when you will return
  • Don’t consume alcohol if you are going to ride a PW
  • Keep your craft well maintained
  • Keep well clear of the beach where there are swimmers
  • When reversing on the slipway, make absolutely sure that your path is clear
  • Park your vehicle and trailer considerately, away from the beach

    You should be covered for third party risks with a valid insurance policy for up to £2,000,000 per claim.
