    Talking Just starting...!

    Hello all,
    My parents just got a cottage 2 hours north of Toronto, Ontario and i'm really excited because now i can finally get myself a seadoo and go crazy.
    I was wondering exactly what i need to do?
    Do i first get a license and then an "operators card" then buy one and get insurance?
    I'm totally clueless as to how to proceed and i couldn't find any website to spell it out for me.
    please if you could tell me what to do so that i can get on the water as fast as possible!
    thanks!!!

    Study for your card and safety, laws for that area, and prices.
    Get your operators card and start shopping around. It can be all done in the same day if you did all your homework... again Study for your card and safety and read your owners manual.

    Welcome to the site and the sport!

    It's easy to get your card, but study.

    Enjoy the water!

    If you get your operator card online, I recommend http://www.theoperatorcard.ca/
    It's cheaper than the other sites I found and they don't charge for re-tests (although if you study, you won't need one).

    Insurance can be a bit of a drag for some people here. I was fortunate enough that the company that does my vehicle and apartments contents insurance covered my PWC as an addition to my contents policy so it's pretty cheap. Other people I know have had to get separate policies for their PWC's and they haven't been cheap. I'm paying $150 for the year and they're paying $400 to $650 on comparable machines.

    Good luck with it!

    You only need an operators card - same as a 'licence'.
    Then when u buy the jetski, you need trailer plate/insurance
    and
    insurance for your jetski... that's all!

    Enjoy!

    Thumbs up

    Hi gl600, signing in late on this thread but the others who already have are giving you good/great information.
    The only thing I would add to it is if you intend on buying a Sea-Doo brand, and live somewhere near the boarder to the States, you can get some unbelievable deals as there is a huge tax break as the product from Bombardier is manufactured in Montreal.
    For example, a friend of mine bought a 2004 RXP in the states for $5,500.00 with trailer and had very low hours. He shopped for a while and the same ski here would cost $13,000. at the time. So keep a lookout for a steel of a deal. They do exist.

    Good luck and welcome .)

    Wow, that really sounds worthwhile. Is there any particular site that he used for deals in the states? (they didn't charge him duty to bring it in to Canada?)
