Big john I was doing some research on Hawaii and saw this and thought I would share. Not sure if Florida safety coarse is certified there.
. How can an out-of-state visitor legally operate a PWC in Hawaii waters?
If possible, a visitor can plan ahead to attend the PWC or/Tow-In classes offered by the Community College system during his/her visit.
Visitors can also rent a vessel from a commercial vendor (jet-ski rental) to ride in the commercial PWC zones. This rental must be preceded by a five-minute safety demonstration conducted by the vendor. It should be noted that commercial PWCs may only be ridden in a commercial thrillcraft zone (a 200-foot radius circle) in an Ocean Recreation Management Area.
The State of Hawaii honors a reciprocity agreement with other States. A person who is certified to operate a PWC in another state may legally operate a PWC in Hawaii. However, the certification must have been issued through a National Association of Boating Law Administrators approved course and the operator must complete the portions of a certificate course for Hawaii that includes, but is not limited to: (1) Local ocean safety principles and practices; (2) The historical, cultural, and customary practices of Hawaii's ocean users; and (3) Any rules or laws pertaining to protected species and thrill craft operation in the State.
