Do I have to wear my life jacket?
Absolutely! Each participant must sign a waiver stating, among other things, that you will wear your life jacket throughout your rental. The life jacket will keep you afloat even if you are tired or cold, and is a critical piece of safety gear. It is very difficult to put on a life jacket when you're in the water, so wear it all the time.

What if I can't swim?
Everyone is required to wear a Coast-Guard-approved life jacket while on the water, and these are designed to keep you afloat even if you can't swim. You are certainly welcome to rent if you can't swim.

Can I bring my young child?
Absolutely! We have life jackets for all ages, from infant on up. Some people start their kids as early as six months. As long as you feel comfortable bringing your child, we're happy to accommodate you! Just don't strap your child into the boat.

Is there some place to park? 
There is parking available.

Is there some place to change?
We do have changing facilities available.

Can I bring food in the boat?
Of course! You are welcome to bring food and stop along the way for a picnic or just a snack.

Is there some place to beach the boats to have lunch or go for a swim? 
On the tip of Tongue Mountain there is a state boat dock that you may use.  You can also land at Veterans Beach in Bolton Landing.

Can I bring my dog? 
You are certainly welcome to bring your dog. Be aware that some dogs do jump out of the boats, and you should be prepared to get them back in. Don't tie your dog to the boat.
