3. Is insurance included?

The boats are covered for liability and theft. Any damage is the responsibility of the renter. Customers who would like coverage can explore the following options. 
  1. Contact your insurance company to see if they can add coverage for the duration of the rental as a rider on your existing policy.
  2. Check with your credit card company to see if there is any coverage available.

4. Do I need a boating license?

Everyone operating a power driven vessel in Canada has to have proof of competency. Currently all renters either must complete a Rental Boat Safety Checklist which acts as a temporary boating license for the duration of the rental or have their PCOC card with them while operating the rental vessel.

7. What about delivery?

Since we are not located on the water, all of our boats are available on trailers. If trailering is not an option for you, we will deliver the boat to one of the two nearby public launches (Pigeon Lake and Sturgeon Lake) at no additional charge. If you require delivery to a different location we would be happy to provide you with a quote.
