BOAT RENTALS

Grab your friends and family and go cruising on beautiful Lake Norman in a pontoon boat. Jump off for a refreshing swim in a cove, enjoy a nice meal at one of Lake Norman’s lakeside restaurants, pull tubers or skiers, or view the amazing homes along the 520 miles of shoreline.

We’re located on the northwest part of Lake Norman, far away from the on-water congestion but close to great waterfront restaurants, beach hangouts, and tubing/water skiing coves. By car, our location is easily accessible from Charlotte, Mooresville, Statesville, Sherrills Ford, Troutman, Denver, Cornelius, Davidson, Huntersville, Hickory, Newton, Conover, Catawba, Claremont, Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and the entire Lake Norman area.

DETAILS

  • Capacity — 9-12 people up to specific weight capacities (1,800-2,100 pounds), depending on the boat (see details below). Children (no matter how small) do count as a person when considering boat capacity. So, if you have reserved a boat that “Seats 12, up to 2,100 lbs”, and you want to bring 12 people — but the their total weight and gear exceed 2,100 lbs — you will have to bring less than 12 people. Additionally, if you have 14 people whose total weight plus gear only equal 1,900 lbs — you can still only bring 12 people. NO EXCEPTIONS. It is your responsibility to add up the total weight of your passengers to ensure you will be under capacity.

  • Age to Rent & Drive — Must be 18-years-old and have a valid driver’s license to rent and drive our boats. You must bring your valid driver’s license to your rental.

Any participant under 18-year-old (minors), must have a legal parent/guardian present (with ID) at the beginning of the rental to verify signing of legal document. If a parent or guardian cannot be present, you must provide a notarized power of attorney giving an adult in your party (with ID) the legal right to sign for the minor.
