"We would rent a boat again in a split second! Even though none of us had been on a boat in years or ever been responsible for being the captain, we felt confident after the expert coaching. The boat was clean, the engine purred and we had a super day on the lake!"

Frequently Asked Questions
How old do I need to be to rent a boat?
You need to be at least 21 years old to rent a boat. Passengers can be any age!
How do I reserve a boat?
Give us a call at 250 551 9770. Alternatively, you can request a booking by clicking Book Now at the top of this page.
What’s your location?
Our boats are launched at the Nelson Public Boat Launch right next to Rotary Lakeside Park under the Big Orange Bridge.
Can we do any watersports?
Unfortunately insurance providers were unable to provide coverage for any towing activities including wakeboarding, waterskiing, or tubing. This means we are unable to offer any watersports this year, but we hope to have better luck next year.
What is your cancellation policy?

If you cancel 48 hours prior to your booking, there will be no charge.
If you cancel 24-48 prior to your booking there will be a 50% charge of the rental price.

Will I get charged if it rains?
Mother Nature sometimes doesn’t work in our favor, and that’s okay. A cancellation fee will not apply in cases of unsafe weather conditions or rain. Do bear in mind that overcast or a slight breeze does not fall in this category!
When do I meet you?
Please show up 30 minutes prior to your scheduled rental time to complete the necessary paperwork and safety orientation.
What do I need to bring with me?
You will need a piece of photo government ID and a credit card for a $2000 security deposit. The deposit will go back on your card directly after your rental.
Anything else you recommend?
Bring plenty of water and sunscreen, it can get real hot out there!
Do I need a boater’s license?
Nope! Although we strongly recommend obtaining a boater’s license here, our staff will provide a full safety briefing and go through a safety checklist that will serve as a temporary boater’s license.
Are pets allowed?
Unfortunately, your furry companion will have to sit this one out :(
We provide all the necessary safety equipment including lifejackets so you can safely enjoy your time on the lake. Fuel and tax is not included in the rental price.
I've never driven a boat before… Is this for me?
Totally! Our experienced staff will provide full training on how to safely operate the boat. Don’t worry, we won’t send you out until we’re satisfied you’ve got it!
