Are the prices of your Waverunner rentals at Lakeview Docks per person?
Yes, the prices listed are per watercraft and there is additional $5.00 per passenger, until 2, depending on their size and the total combined weight.
Can we take the Waverunner anywhere we want in Wildwood?
New Jersey requires that any rental Waverunner stay within visible sight of our highly trailed guides (they are there for your safety.) Luckily enough, our guides have great eyesight and we have the largest riding area in Wildwood Crest (marked with 4 buoys) with no other rental companies in sight!!! This means that each trip has a personal lifeguard (or two or three) for the duration of your adventure and you won't have to worry about any other rental companies sharing the same space. For those who rent boats you are permitted to go anywhere you like as long as you stay within the boundaries of the Cape May Bridge and Wildwood Bridge
Does the instruction time count as part of my driving time?
No…. Your Lakeview Docks adventure does not begin until you physically leave our docks heading out for the water! By the time you get back, we promise you'll agree that of all the many things to do in Wildwood, Lakeview Docks Waverunners rentals are one of the most fun and memorable attractions!
