The RAW Watersports Story

Run-A-Wave = RAW

RAW Watersports, pioneered personal watercraft rentals in Windsor/ Essex County in 1994 on the Belle River West Beach.

Our business Run-A-Wave Watersports, started with just one hot-pink Yamaha Waverunner jet ski and grew into a thriving boat sales business that required our attention and thus we shelved RAW Watersports.

Today, back with a passion to make people smile we have a reimagined business model and all new watercraft that include; pontoon boats, personal watercraft, kayaks and fishing boats.

We are excited to provide access to the water. Rent our Sea Doo jetskis, Pontoon Boats , Kayaks or Fishing Boats on Lake St. Clair from Lakeshore or let us load them on a trailer for you to tow to your favourite Lake.

Don’t want to do the driving? No Problem. Select one of our captained cruises.

Safety is a top priority so our staff will take the time to make sure that you are safe and comfortable with the operation of our boats and Sea Doos with an on-water orientation before sending you off on your boat for a fun-filled day on Lake St. Clair.

We also offer a free Temporary Boaters Licence that is good for the duration of your rental if you do not have a Pleasure Craft Operators Card. Please arrive about 20 minutes early to allow time for your safety briefing and boaters license.
