What Can We Help

We are all pet lovers at Young Harris Watersports & RV! Because of that, we allow pets under 20 lbs on boats for an additional fee (per day). Dogs above this weight limit are not allowed for safety and maintenance reasons.
Fuel is not included with your rental. Costs vary based on the duration of your rental. Fuel consumption is directly dependent on the weight of the watercraft, occupancy, water conditions, and your driving style.

When you book a reservation, you will be offered the option of purchasing trip insurance. With trip insurance, you can cancel your reservation up to 24 hours before your booking date. You will get 100% of your rental cost back.

If you don’t have trip insurance, reservations are refundable if you cancel at least 15 days before your arrival date. Any cancellations made less than 2 weeks before a reservation date will forfeit all refunds.

If you are later than one hour to your pick-up appointment, you will forfeit your reservation, and that vessel can be rented to another guest. You may call ahead and let us know you are running late, though, and we will hold your reservation. In these cases, the total cost of your rental will not be reduced by the amount of time you are late.

No. Although you are welcome to bring your own vests or equipment, you will be provided vests with each rental. We also have a full inventory of watersports equipment available for purchase or rent.

Young Harris Watersports reserves the right to cancel any reservation due to dangerous weather conditions. In this case, a credit voucher for the full rental amount will be issued to impacted customers to be used at a later date (no monetary refunds will be issued unless trip insurance was purchased).

Refunds or vouchers will not be issued for inclement weather once the vessel has departed. We will not waive the terms of our cancellation policy for future weather forecasts, slight drizzles, or cloudy weather.

The jet skis we rent are capable of reaching speeds of 55-60 mph. However, the weight of the riders and water conditions may influence the top speed of the craft.
Although our Jet Skis are 3-seat watercraft with a weight capacity of around 530 lbs, we only allow 2 riders at a time for safety reasons.
No. These machines have 4-stroke engines, which means all you have to do is put gas in them. All machines are fully fueled upon rental pickup. Just make sure you don’t run out of fuel while on the water.

Capacity ratings vary by craft type. Please visit the craft page for each craft you are interested in or call our office to confirm capacity ratings.

When you have a watercraft delivery scheduled, we recommend you arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your reservation time. This way, we can ensure that all necessary paperwork is filled out and walk you through a detailed orientation of your craft. Arriving early also allows us to get you out on the water on time. You will then be given the craft, which will have a full tank of gas. It is your responsibility to return it with a full tank (alternatively, we can re-fuel it for you for an additional $25.00 convenience fee). When you return, we will inspect the craft for any damages and remove all of the rental equipment for you. Please see Our Delivery Service page for more information.

The day you receive your craft via delivery or check it out at one of our locations is considered the first day of your rental. All craft are due by 5:00pm on the final day of your reservation. However, you can always drop-off rentals early when possible. For example, if you make a 3-day reservation that starts on Monday at 12:00 (noon), it would be due back by that Wednesday at 5:00 pm. The day you take possession of the vessel and the day you turn it in each count as one day when calculating rental rates. Keep this in mind so you can maximize your time on the water.

If you are interested in renting one of our watercraft on your lake and do not see it on our list of delivery lakes, feel free to contact us, and we may be able to accommodate you.
