    as i always say before starting any business know your laws and do lots of research, location matters and advertising, start small then if it dont work your really not out much, test the waters before diving in

    I have been Jet Ski Fishing for over ten years. I am going to start a jet ski fishing and eco tours guide business this year. 3-4 hours trips in the Chesapeake Bay and along coastal Virginia on custom rigged pwc's. I want people to experience more than just going in circles. Reading these responses has helped me think through some of the details. I still have some detail and legal work to get straight. I have a blog www.jetskibrian.com that I post a lot of my fishing trips on.

Plus, I want to add kitesurfing and windsurfing But I didn't find good instructors for kitesurfing and windsurfing!! How many helpers do I need if I have 10 jet skis? Where is the best place to find talented people with experience to work with me? 00971507759494 / dubaisky@me.com
  • Scott P> said on October 31, 2013
    Very interesting reading. Appreciate everyone's input. I've been thinking about two locations in West Virginia, one along a quite river and another on a lake. It looks grim though if I cant get insurance with my only experience being operating one? I may have missed it in all of these post but what about water rescue? What if one of your customers takes a dump into the water and does not come back up? Small rural communities in West Virginia dont have lifeguards posted along rivers or lakes. Input appreciated.
  • Steven said on November 3, 2013
    Great thread! I have owned and operated my boat and jet ski rental business in Texas for over 7 years now. I am looking to expand my business outside of the U.S. mainly looking around the Caribbean. I have all equipment and knowledge on starting and operating this type of business but trying to lock down a location. If anyone knows or has connections in the Caribbean for a potential location for rentals, I am ready to go! May also consider partnership. Also possibly looking to sell my business in Texas within the next couple of years. Feel free to contact me with any info. naustin16@gmail.com
  • Todd H said on November 12, 2013
    good read, I've owned my rental for 11 years In Colorado, I too am interested in expanding southeast, Florida or further south, possibly a partnership situation would be ok, I too might sell in a couple of years as well, I'd like to expand my biz to a near full year operation, there are limitations to a season biz. the location and details of that location are key, maybe even more important then the equipment IMO, feel free to contact me info@theskishak.com

  • Melissa said on April 22, 2015
    This thread has been a great source of raw information from owners and entrepreneurs. I am soaking up the information but would love to know more. I am wanting to start up a jetski rental/dolphin tour company with my husband in the Clearwater FL area. If all goes well I have 2 friends that are wanting to join the venture. I enjoy jetskiing and dont mind at all making it my job everyday all day. I know location is key and theres a lot of finances involved as well as paperwork (insurance, etc...). I would love to speak with someone that knows the ins and outs of the business, possibly an investor as well. I recently rented a jet ski from Scott in Panama City (funny he was on this thread). He was awesome to speak with - seem to be the "give it to you straight" kind of guy. I am 28yrs old and my husband is 35. We want to start a new chapter in our lives where we do what we love. If anyone in the know would like to share their knowledge I would love to hear from you. This is something I am putting serious thought into and I am not taking it lightly. I appreciate any inquiries. Thanks again. I can be reached at melissa.casole@yahoo.com thanks!

  • Chanel said on May 12, 2015
    This forum was insightful: I went jet skiing in Florida a few weeks ago and got the idea to start my own business in Detroit, MI. The demand is quite high but with little to no companies it sucks! There is a company off Lake St. Claire that charges a hell of a lot with most Detroiters not wanting to commute that far this would be perfect. If anyone more experienced in the business could give me a little more insight that would be helpful:the laws and policies are different from state to state I would like to know where should I begin. I have a desired location and sea-doos are only about 5 grand I'd buy maybe 3 starting off but insurance is my concern I don't want to be liable for anyone's death!

Our location is positioned on the lake to where we are the only boat and jet ski rental facility for at least 1 hour drive. Located on resort property with additional resorts just down the street. We also receive many clients from lake front property owners whom short term lease their homes. Demand in this area of Lake Travis has increased significantly due to residential and tourist growth.

    Hi I am located in one of the busiest tourist beaches in America, Wilmington, North Carolina, and I am interested in starting a jet ski rental business. There is currently only one other jet ski rental business in the entire beach and they are running older machines and a not so professional crew of workers. I feel like with my know how of social media and online marketing paired with new machines and a professional work force we could easily be the best business in Wilmington. Looking for possible investors/consultants/general advice. Willing to pay a fee for your consultation given that you have an established business and can prove your track record. I have already established and maintained a landscaping company on the same grounds that I plan to put toward this new business venture. Contact me if interested cuttingedge910@gmail.com

  • kenny said on July 10, 2017
    I just started a Jet ski rental, all brand new jet skis plus a few pontoons. The business came in quick but, just like they have said, there are the risks. I fell into a few after 5 days of opening. Insurance is not cheap where i live so I ended up paying 16k for liability. Now the skis themselves are all brand new. This company cost me 120k to start up without the fees you have to pay to the state and Licensing. It would take me two years until I could get on top, but i'm the only one in my town that has this kind of company. I don't have any competition so i have set prices. The market is going good with about 1500 a day. I've never actually owned a rental company before so this is all new to me but I had to take that jump. I made sure i was organised and that everything was in place before opening.

  • William E said on September 29, 2019
    I just sold my 18 skis that I had in my business and got out. What you people have to realize is that the regulations along with insurance will eat your ass alive. I dont care where you are trying to set up. People talking about that there are people lined up with cash ready to ride...LOL, be serious. Luckily I was able to sell 8 skis individually and sell the rest to a startup operation in Caribbean. Most people want to start the business because they think they will be sitting on the beach relaxing all day and make a bundle. IN reality it is hot as hell, you will either be hustling around or you will pay someone to go around and get renters from the beach. Your choice. The past 2 years saw a decline of people wanting to rent jetskis and the business isnt what it used to be. Now the jetskis in many places are considered a nuissance. Good luck getting permits, and if you dont get permits and insurance you risk getting your equipment seized. To ALL the hopefuls out there I will tell you that you need to understand FULLY what you are getting into. We ended up purchasing a beach bar right on the beach and I can tell you that its a lot easier and cheaper to open, way less liability. Just make sure you can get proper licenses /permits to sell alcohol because that will be your bread and butter, any food you serve there will be just to get people in there. The good thing about that business is that you can hire locals to work in the kitchen, manage, bartend and for servers if you want to be hands off. Its really what you want to make of it. Just hire entertainment 2 or 3 nights out of the week and people will come in and eat/drink. We never even worked at a restaurant prior to this and are making really good. The bad thing is during slow season it sucks, so just make sure you dont overspend during the good times and it will keep you sailing through the slow times. Good luck to all of you.
