Barkley Watersports is the only place for jet ski fun on Lake Barkley!  In 2019, we will begin renting jet skis on Kentucky Lake as well at Lynnhurst Family Resort. Our jet skis are professional-grade personal watercraft. We upgraded our rental units for the 2018 season.  Our current rental fleets include

3-seater Yamaha VX Deluxe 4-stroke Wave Runners.

Not only can you trust our jet skis, but you can also trust us. We are licensed and insured, and have over 20 years experience in the boating business.  We pride ourselves in always taking care of our customers!

Rental reservations are always recommended (only available on 4 hour or full day rentals), but if jet skis are available they are rented first-come, first-serve to walk-in customers. 

Both locations will be renting jet skis 7 days a week during boating season - WEATHER PERMITTING.

Official 2019 Season: Friday, May 3 through Sunday, September 29. During off-season, it may be possible to make special arrangements to meet your needs. You must call in advance to work out those details.
