Winter Rentals

The following measures are being implemented due to COVID-19 and will be upheld until public health recommendations deem it safe to make changes to our policies. If you have any questions or concerns please let us know.
  • All rental reservations must be made online and paid for in advance. We can not accept cash at this time.
  • Please bring your own life jacket if you have one.
  • Staff and renters will need to abide by the 6ft distancing requirements.
  • Staff will be wearing masks and we ask that all renters wear a mask while on land.
  • Our rentals will be more self-serve than in the past. A staff person will be there to assist you when you arrive, however they will not be helping you enter the boat or launch the boat from shore to maintain physical distance.
  • We are currently limiting group sizes to 6 people at a time.
  • We are offering a minimum 2 hour rental block to help reduce congestion and to allow for enough time to clean equipment.
  • Equipment will be cleaned after each rental.
  • If you aren’t feeling well, please stay home. We will refund your rental no problem.
  • Bathrooms are closed to the public at this time.
