Skip To:
Rental Requirements
  • All boat renters must be at least 21 years old

  • All captains must have a valid driver's license.

  • Must have a valid credit card or cash in the amount of $500.00 for a required security deposit for every rental. The deposit will be fully refunded provided that there is no damage to the rental vehicle and that the boat is returned by the scheduled time to our docks.

  • All captains must have a valid boaters license or boating safety certification if they are born after January 1, 1982. If the captain is born before January 1, 1982, then they do not need a boaters license or boating safety certification.

  • If you do not have a boaters license or a boating safety certification, you can take the course here: This course will get a license that is good for life!

  • We offer a temporary certification course (resort course) here at our facility! This certification is only good for the period of your rental, costs and additional $125.00, and takes about 45 minutes to complete

  • We recommend taking the course through Boat Ed, as it is more in depth about boating safety. However, we understand that time constraints may limit a renter's ability to take the course so we have the resort course as a backup!
