Keeping our waters and shores clean goes without saying for any
good rider. Here are some green pointers to keep in
Clean your engine and refuel on land
This will reduce the risk of oil or fuel spilling into the
water. Remember to fill the tank slowly and not to overfill.
Be an animal lover
Respect the wildlife around you,
especially nesting birds along the shore line. Keep in mind
that mammals such as sea otters and sea lions can hide just
underneath the surface and get injured from direct impact of boats
travelling at high speeds. Make sure you ride at a
controllable speed and avoid areas with high animal
Should you hit an animal, report it
immediately to the local wildlife commission.
Wash it off
Wash your PWC carefully after you have used it to prevent the
spread of exotic plants to other waters. This could have
devastating consequences if a plant does not have natural enemies
in the other water and takes over the area to the exclusion of the
native species and animals.
Avoid operating your PWC in shallow waters as weeds and plant
life might get caught in the watercraft's pump and cause engine
Save it for the bin
Never throw litter in the water, on the shore or anywhere else
where it is not supposed to go.
