Your safety is our first priority. Before departing in your boat, our staff will provide dockside instruction and ensure the competence of both the captain and crew. Each boat is equipped with all the required safety equipment, including life vests for all boaters. You must carry a cell phone with you both so we can reach and so that if you have any difficulties you can call us.
Power Boat Rental Requirements:
- Renters must be 21 years of age;
- You must have a valid Credit Card and Government-issued photo identification;
- Each renter is required to sign a Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims, Assumption of Risks and Indemnity Agreement;
- The primary renter must have a Pleasure Craft Operator Card. This card is required to legally operate all motor types on watercraft in Canada. If you arrive without this card and have little to no boating experience, you will not be able to rent our power boat. At the sole discretion of the Marina Manager, visitors from outside Canada may be accepted as renters providing they can demonstrate sufficient boating experience and successfully complete our dockside checklist;
- Deposit required – A $500 pre-authorization of your credit card is required to rent a boat. Or you can pay $800 cash or by debit. The deposit will be returned when the boat is brought back and it has been examined to ensure no damage has been sustained;
- A rental boat safety checklist must be completed by Marina personnel with the renters, prior to departure. Please allow at least 15 minutes to complete this procedure. Your rental time commences once the procedure has been completed;
We reserve the right to cancel booked rentals due to adverse weather conditions.
