To enjoy your rental for the full rental period, we recommend checking in at our Ship’s Store twenty-thirty minutes prior to your scheduled start time.
On the day of the rental, a $300 damage deposit (cash or credit card on file) is required for all motorized rentals. If damage occurs and the boat or jet ski cannot be rented until repairs are made, you will lose the entire deposit. If damage occurs and the damage deposit does not cover the entire cost of repairs, you are responsible for any and all excess costs. You have the option of purchasing a Damage Loss Waiver to minimize out of pocket costs for damages. Rentals are inspected before and after each rental.
Rental rates do not include fuel. Payment for fuel is due when the boat is returned. Boats are sent out full of fuel and refilled at the end of each rental.
If you were born on December 31, 1986 or after, you MUST have a “Boater’s Safety Card”. You can obtain a Boater’s Safety Card” at boatus.org. We can also issue you a temporary one day “Boater’s Safety Card”.
