This service contains a small CONVENIENCE FEE to reserve a boat. That means it costs a little extra to reserve a watercrasft from here to pay for the website, visa fees, etc., But this way, you don't have to wait for two hours when you get here, or not be able to go because we are sold out with all our reservations.

You can come to rent without a reservation, but you risk not getting a boat, or getting out right away, so it is smarter to make a reservation if you for sure want to get out on the water and not be inconvenienced by waiting.

We remove reservation ability sometimes a day or two in advance. So, if you see reservations are not available, it does NOT mean we are sold out. It means only that we have closed out the ability to make reservations so still stop down and see what's available ok!
