Rental prices are usually by the hour with a 2 hour minimum. Although I found a few that allowed a one-hour rental. The prices vary quite a bit and you will need to call ahead to make sure you know the rates.

Most places will have a way to pay online and will require a Visa or MasterCard to make the registration. You also have an option of paying cash in person.  A registration fee plus a refundable damage deposit is also customary when booking a reservation.  You can also count on a set notice for a cancellation refund if this is allowed.

Some renting agencies will require a full-day rental for each day it takes to make repairs for damage you or your passengers may have caused to their rental equipment.  Check the details in the contract or service agreement.

Ask about accounting for rainy days when booking a reservation.  Most highly reputable businesses will issue a rain check on days when it rains during your reserved time.

The typical jet ski season is from May until mid-September.
