    We will give refunds when appointments are cancelled 48 hours before. We do not issue refunds if your rental time was interrupted, cancelled, or terminated by misuse of machinery or intolerable behavior, intoxicated, impaired, etc. You also may not receive a refund even if the jet ski malfunctions during your time. A 48-hour cancellation policy applies to all reservations; reservations canceled within a 24-hour period is 100% non-refundable.

In the case that it is a small passing shower, we will wait a few minutes (usually around 15 min) and go out once it stops raining. Please take into account that we will make this decision based on weather around the area of where the rental is supposed to be rented. If it is raining someplace else or the weather is just cloudy, it doesn’t mean that you can cancel your ride. In this case, you will lose your reservation deposit and our regular cancellation policy stated above applies to the reservation. If you are making a reservation for the same day, renter accepts that there are no refunds, no cancelations, and no rescheduling. SAME DAY = FINAL SALE
