We were not going to use a jet ski because of the prevalence of scams targeting tourists (suggest you google jet ski mafia if you haven't heard of this). However, following recommendation from Samui Treking, we decided to use Orange wave. You do need to read the terms of the contract you sign carefully as quite rightly, they would charge for damage but they clearly state the costs associated with each such event and they appear fair. If you can't accept this sort of risk, I'd suggest hiring a jetski in a western country with full insurance rather than out here.
They were very friendly, happy for me to thoroughly inspect the jet ski before use and even pointed out all of the existing damage as I was going. I can't imagine the same could be said of the people who are out to con you.
We hired the more powerful 1800cc machine and it was fantastic fun. They wave a big orange flag at the end of your time. The jetski is equiped with a kill-switch lanyard, life jackets provided and the area for jetskiing is very generous. The explanation of the jetski area is clear both verbally and on a large sign.
We couldn't fault them, if you want an above board jetski experience on Koh Samui, Orange Wave seems the right people to give you this.
