New Jet Ski Business Opening On Vermilion River

Vermilion Jet Skies is coming to Vermilion, Ohio, opening Memorial Day Weekend 2021. Bring your friends or family and cruise Lake Erie with their new fleet of 2021 Kawasaki STX160 Jet Skis. Jonathan Hauck, Joe McHenry and Chris Lehky of Vermilion will open the new rental business at the former location of Erie Shore Wave Runners, 655 W. River Road, which moved to Lorain.

Experience Kawasaki's newest, high performance, and incredibly fast Jet Ski model. Measuring in at nearly 10.3 feet long and 4 feet wide, they will comfortably fit three passengers and are built to handle whatever Lake Erie throws at you. Feel the thrill of a 1,500 cc engine that puts out 160hp with a top speed of 62mph.

The riding area will be the largest offered by any rental company on Lake Erie. Ride up to five miles from the break wall in Vermilion in all directions. Riders are required to remain at least 300 feet from the shore at all times.

A member of the Vermilion Jet Skies staff will ride along on a separate "chase ski", remaining in the ride area for the duration of your rental period. Their job is to act as a lifeguard should you need assistance getting back on your ski in the event of a fall, to keep track of time remaining on your rental, and to provide a line of communication back to shore.

For an additional fee, you can request to have HD drone video and photos taken during your rental.
