Quality Boats and Exceptional Customer Service 

You can rent a boat from anyone. At Bay to Bay Boat Club, renting quality boats and providing exceptional customer service is our business. We don’t just hand you the keys and send you off. Instead, our dock staff greets you, carts your gear from the vehicle, and loads all your gear on the boat. `It’s full service’! Bay to Bay boat club wants you to have a FUN and memorable experience on Lake Minnetonka. We will provide you with a large navigation map and provide a thorough orientation “check-out” to make sure that you are comfortable with the boat and navigation. BTB is very family oriented and welcomes corporate customers. We have an A+ rating with the BBB . The BBB keeps track of complaints over a three year time period. We have zero complaints. Great for Parties, Corporate Rentals & Quality Family Time 

When someone rents a boat from a photo on line, they are not sure exactly what they are getting. The photos on our rental page are the boats you get. We work with our manufacturer, JC Pontoon Boats and custom build the boats with many amenities . Many customers comment when they board the boats that they are far nicer than expected.

If you intend to have a large group and the plan is to drink all day on a boat, we are probably not the company to reserve a boat with. A boat full of people intending to just drink and get out of control is not the customer we appreciate or want to deal with. If that is your intention, we strongly suggest you book with another rental company.

Safety First: 
 We do require the driver to be 25 Years of age or older, responsible and have boat driving experience! If you have never driven a boat before, you cannot rent from BTB. The liability, the damage you could incur, your passenger’s safety and the safety of other boaters on the lake are too important to risk. Lake Minnetonka is a busy lake and our boats are large, probably larger than most people have driven. We’re happy to find a person to drive the boat for you but you MUST ask for a driver well in advance of your reservation.

Our boats DO NOT have grills on them and you cannot bring your own and grill on the boat. It is an extreme fire and safety hazard.

Tubing, skiing, wake boarding, knee boarding is prohibited. Our Insurance Company prohibits anyone from pulling or towing anyone on our rental boats.

Fishing: You can fish on the boats but they do not have livewells or baitwells and we do not sell bait.

Fishing Guides:
We have fishing guides that have worked with BTB for sixteen years. Guides must be booked well in advance. They provide all fishing equipment and tackle. Rates will vary depending on the number of people and length of time you wish to be guided. Please call for further information and a price quote.


Cancellation Policies: Everyone's idea of a perfect boat day varies and 85 and sunny everyday doesn't happen in a Minnesota summer; we're not in Arizona! We would expect you to go out if it is 65/70 degrees and sunny. If that doesn't work for you, you probably should not reserve a boat from us. If it is raining at the time of your reservation, we will cancel you out and you will not be charged. If you decide the day isn't perfect and you don't want to come out you will be charged the full amount if we cannot fill your cancelled time slot. If we do, you will not be charged. You must cancel one week prior to your reservation to avoid being charged for the rental. If you cancel a few hours ahead of time for example, it will be difficult for us to call people on the waiting list and give them enough time to round up their group and come out. As with other rental operations on the lake, we are a seasonal business and cannot afford to have someone simply cancel and lose the rental. We have a waiting list every weekend and are full many weekdays during the prime summer season.

To Reserve: You may view our link to view availability. Please call (952) 401-3880 to reserve. We will ask for your name, address, phone number, email address and credit card information. After we enter your reservation in the system, you will receive a confirmation email. Please check your email to make sure you have the confirmation!

Reservation Confirmation follow up: Ten days prior to your reservation we will call you to confirm your reservation and your credit card information. 48 hours prior to your reservation we will call to re-confirm and ask about the number of vehicles you will be bringing. If you reserve within one week of your reservation we will take down your information and still call you 48 hours in advance of your reservation.

Rental Parking:


Parking is limited at the Caribbean Marina where Bay to Bay is located and we have 25 boat club and rental boats which means a lot of vehicles. For this reason, Bay to Bay hasreserved parking at Lucky's which is conveniently located two miles from our Marina location. All rental customers must park at Lucky's Station (Gulf Gas Station) at 24365 Smithtown Rd, Excelsior, MN 55331 (See Map). The parking area is the empty lot adjacent to the convenience store and we have a large sign designating parking for BTB customers. Our shuttle bus will take you from the parking location to the marina and back. Hopefully your group will arrive at the same time, once everyone is there we will shuttle you as soon as your group is ready. You are limited to 4 vehicles. Try to plan ahead and call us 15 minutes prior to your arrival at the PARKING AREA so we can be ready and waiting to shuttle you to the marina. PLEASE contact us with any questions. DURING THE WEEK, you MAY be able to park at the marina IF you have one or two cars, but it depends on how busy we are. You can expect a call from us 48 hours prior to your reservation and we will let you know if you can park at the Marina or not. If you do not pass this information on to anyone in your party who is driving, and they end up coming to the marina, they will most likely be sent back to the shuttle parking area and that will delay your departure. Your group's cooperation would be greatly appreciated. Lucky's has all the convenience items you may need from sunscreen to pop/ice/etc. Across the street you will also find Joey Nova's and Hazelwood Restaurants, Caribou Coffee and MGM liquors to satisfy any of those needs.
