There are many jet skis to choose from and it can be a tough decision. That’s why we’ve put together this list of 5 things to ask yourself before getting a jet ski.
How Much Do You Want To Spend?

Have You Got A Licence?
In Australia, you need a licence to ride a jet ski. For Queensland and New South Wales, you need a personal watercraft (PWC) licence before hopping on the water. Make sure to check with your state’s regulations before you get going.
Who Will Ride With You?
Think about whether you’ll want to take any passengers with you on your jet ski. Some jet skis can carry up to four people and other jet skis are built for only one person. Smaller models can be easier to ride and are more suitable for beginners.
Where Will You Ride It?
There are plenty of places to ride your jet ski - it all depends on where you are. From the Murray River to Somerset Dam, there are plenty of bodies of water to carve up on your new ride. Check out our latest blog 5 Best Places To Jet Ski Around Australia for some ideas.
Where Will You Store It?
It’s best to store your jet ski out of the water to protect it from damage and reduce maintenance.
Do you have a garage, shed or storage area that will be suitable?
If you live on the waterfront, you can also store your jet ski on your dock or pontoon. Just take it out of the water and place it under a cover.
