While everyone here at HCA love their pets we do not allow them on the watercraft. 

How far can we take the watercraft?

We ask that all rentals stay between the Indiana Dunes park to the west and New Buffalo to the east.

Can I take the watercraft to a beach?

Watercraft are not allowed ON the beach.  However you are allowed to take them NEAR the beach.  The WaveRunners do not have an anchor so you will need to be very careful to not take the watercraft into shallow water which could damage the prop on the boat or clog the intake on the jet skis.
