New jet ski owners often underestimate their watercraft’s shallow water limitations. Unlike boats, jet skis can’t navigate in ultra-shallow waters due to their powerful suction. Operating in less than 3 feet of water risks sucking up debris, damaging the impeller, or the wear ring. When starting in shallow water, aim for waist-deep areas, and avoid turning on the engine too soon. Beaching should be done with the engine off, or use a screw anchor. Even at high speeds, shallow waters pose a risk. If you do suck something up, seek professional repairs, as it’s not covered by warranties and rarely by insurance. While the risk exists, with cautious use, it’s relatively rare.
