Q: Are children’s life jackets provided?
A: No. In MN, children under 10 years of age are required by law to have them. In WI and IL, the law is children under the age of 13, so in all instances dependent on your state, you must bring some if this is the case. In some rare instances we may have extras available, but generally we do not have the inventory. If you need us to supply children’s life jackets, please call us at least 24 hours in advance.

A: No. The DNR/Water Patrol simply count heads. Toddlers and infants also count. You will be ticketed if you violate the law.
Q: What if I return the craft late?
A: There is a 10 min grace period. After the 10 minutes you will be billed 100 per hour for each hour that you are late.
Q: Can I hire a driver to drive my rental boat?
A: No. Though typically this is a service we offer, due to Covid-19 safety procedures, we are not offering this currently.
Generally, captain service is available so long as we have enough notice and an available driver for your given time period. The rate for a captain is $39/hour. Please call us at 612-208-1800 for questions about this.
