No experience necessary to rent our rowboats. A quick safety briefing gets you out on the water. 1 hour minimum. Payment is made upon your return and rounded to the closest half hour. We will require a driver’s license or credit card to hold while you are renting.

Safety & Weather

Your safety is our primary concern. You will receive a safety briefing and information on how to call for assistance. We will have a safety boat and staff available at all times. We ask that you are respectful of our boats and your passengers—the water is 55 degrees here and not to be taken lightly, even in the summer.

We cannot allow small boats out in unsafe conditions, which includes winds over 15 knots and sea state (waves) over 2 feet. If conditions become too windy or wavy, we will come out and escort you home safely. Winds often pick up in the evenings after 5, so we reserve the right to close early if the conditions warrant.
