Personal watercraft are the nautical equivalent of a motorcycle in that you ride on one as opposed to in one, as you would in a boat.
Almost all personal watercraft hold two persons, one behind the other and some will hold three persons. You can choose a model from the huge selection of models of personal watercraft available for sale in Canada according to several criteria including how aggressive or sporting or trick riding you want to do, the type of water conditions you usually encounter, the smoothness or comfort of the ride you want, the speed you want, whether you want to pull waterskiers or tubers, etc. All personal watercraft are powered by a jet pump as in a jet boat and major improvements have occurred over the past number of years to assist in slow speed manoeuvrability, braking, and even operating in reverse. There are three manufacturers of personal watercraft known to be available in Canada: Kawasaki, Sea-Doo, and Yamaha
