You just can’t beat that!

Located in Webster, not far from the Connecticut border, Webster Lake is another Massachusetts lake that allows jet skis.

Part of Boston Harbor, Dorchester Bay features a boat ramp for easy access. Locals love launching their jet skis here and enjoying some salt water fun without traveling south to Cape Cod.
Sesuit Harbor in Dennis is among the best spots on Cape Cod from which to launch and operate a jet ski. Northside Marina is privately owned, and they charge for parking and launching. But it is well worth the unbelievably memorable experience of jet skiing on the beautiful Cape.
