Yes it's possible to carry a passenger. Things to consider are weight capacity and safety. The more weight you have approaching your maximum weight capacity causes the PWC to become unstable. Safety: When venturing offshore you want to have all the necessary safety gear (file a float plan with someone onshore, VHF radio, wear your PFD, mobile phone contained within a DryPak, GPS, backup compass, 3 Coast Guard approved signalling devices, and some carry an EPIRB. When I take my Daughter there area minimum of 2 other experienced jet ski fishermen in case of an emergency / breakdown. Choose your fishing days carefully, make sure the sea conditions are favorable and be mindful of the chance for storms (watch your radar app if in signal range and monitor the horizon and VHF). The pic from above was a good day all around; we had favorable weather and caught Red Snapper, Cobia, King and Spanish Mackerel.
