We have three Pontoon boats to rent to the general public. We will be happy to welcome families and corporate outings and provide great boats and service to those who are respectful of our boats, staff, other boaters and the lake. We do not rent to bachelorette or bachelor parties, or any groups, large or small, who want to just get on a boat and get intoxicated. There are other rental places that will be happy to have your business but not Bay To Bay. We are located at a quiet, private Marina which has a small restaurant, many private boat owners with families, including young children. PLEASE, do not book a boat from us if you intend on getting drunk as we do not want to babysit people who are too drunk to walk off the dock, or are loud and obnoxious when getting off the boat, become ill from drinking too much or leave the boat a complete mess. We are not in the business of babysitting drunk adults. If we have to deal with these types of issues, you will be charged an additional $500.00. No exceptions. Our motto is: If you respect us, our Staff, the boats and the Marina property, we will respect you. If you do not, then you can expect the same from us. We will not tolerate disrespectful people so don’t be surprised if you are charged extra based on your behavior because we’ve just explained our tolerance policy very clearly.
We will take a picture of the propeller of the boat and send it up to the office with your name on it. We will ask you to take a picture as well that way there will be no disagreement on the condition of the propeller. We will ask you to look at the outside panels of the boat and will show you where all of the safety items are and how many of each item there is. If you come back with a damaged propeller, damage to the sides of the boat, safety items missing, you will be charged accordingly. Our boats are in great condition and basically every time there is an ‘issue’, it is caused by the driver or passengers on the boat. In other words, people renting do the damage we don’t. We are not driving the boat, we are not the passengers. It is in your best interest to drive the boat correctly and to have your passengers behave ‘nicely’. If not, know that you will be charged accordingly.
How we handle the payments and damage deposit:
We will charge you, when you arrive for your reservation, for the rental rate. We will also be charging an additional $2,500.00 on your card for a damage deposit. We will run your card while you are present and checking in. Once you come back from your outing we will refund the card for the $2,500.00 as long as there is no damage. When you call in to reserve, you will be notified that we will be charging your card the $2,500.00 damage deposit and then explain that if there is no damage, we will provide the refund and hand you the refund receipt and your rental receipt.
