Editing the Content

  1. Click in the area where the stock title appears. Remove the text and replace it with your own title for this About Us page.  The example below shows the change from “The Write Stuff” to “VB Jet Ski Rentals.”

    4. What should I wear? – We recommend wearing a bathing suit or wetsuit. You may also wear general clothes if you prefer however, we do not recommend it. Please keep in mind that it is a watersports activity and you will get wet.

    5. What should I bring? – If you wish to bring a few small personal items with you on your adventure you can. However, we do not recommend bringing items that are not waterproof.

    6. Is there an extra charge for fuel? – No. Fuel for the jet ski is covered in the cost of the rental.

    7. What time should I show up? – You should arrive 30 Minutes prior to your reservations. This will allow you time for your 15-minute water safety course.

    8. How do I pay for my rentals? – At the time you make the reservation we will hold it with a major credit card. The card will not be charged at that time. You can pay cash or credit at the time of arrival.
