We ONLY rent our boats/motors to on-site guests: NOT to the public at large.

  • Operation Guide & trouble shooting

*Cannot reserve any hourly/daily motorized boats prior to arrival as weekly reservations take priority.  Upon check-in, ask at the lodge what is possible for dailies/hourlies. Keep in mind you will want to view weather forecast as close to scheduling your daily or hourly rental as possible, too.  When you reserve your daily or hourly rental, you will be charged immediately.  NO REFUNDS IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO USE YOUR reserved boat rental on the day you've booked: whether it be weather-related, illness, scheduling conflicts, etc. - no matter the reason.  If you book it so that is unavailable to others, you are responsible for the full day or hour rental.  If you are unsure which day looks best to you, wait until the day before to pay and book, then schedule your 5-minute boat orientation/operation run-through.   We do orientations as soon as you reserve if possible.  If not possible, then will schedule after 8 a.m. the following day.  Expect the boat rental agreement for the Snazzy Cruiser and Family Ferry to take approximately another 5 minutes to review and sign.
