Maine Watercraft Rentals
NOTE FOR 2016 RENTALS: We no longer offer kayak and canoe rentals. When we first started offering paddle-boat rentals, it was because no one else in our area was and we wanted our Guests to have access to them. Offering paddle-boats for rent was never a financial consideration for us, but more of a way to meet our Vacation Guest's needs. So many other great outfitters in our operating area like Maine Sport, Ducktrap Kayaks, Tidal Transit, Waterwalker, Midcoast Kayak and Port Clyde Kayaks are now offering them for rent - so that we now recommend those companies for paddle-boat rentals instead. Additionally, we have 'tightened' in the range of our powerboat rentals as noted below. We no longer offer the Tracker Fish & Ski or 12' alum fishing boat. The Grady White was retired to be our "reserve" boat.
OUR BOAT RENTALS ARE ONLY FOR RENT BY 6 DAY INCREMENTS TO ON THE WATER IN MAINE Inc. VACATION RENTERS ON THE FOLLOWING BODIES OF WATER IN MAINE: Megunticook Lake, Crawford Pond, Alford Lake, Hobbs Pond and Norton Pond. The Trophy Pro and Boston Whaler may be rented and used in the ocean as well, but only along the shores of West Penobscot Bay from Port Clyde to Belfast. On the Water in Maine vacation renters should refer to the top of the "details" tab on their rental property listing to see what boats are offered for rent at their vacation rental properties.
Sorry, we do not rent by the day, hour, or to anyone that does not have a secure place to store the rental boat(s) and is not renting an On the Water in Maine vacation home.
Boat rentals include delivery & pickup, lifejackets & other required safety gear, as well as normal accessories. Power boats come fully fueled - renters must pay to refill them to full at end of rental period. Power boats also include the use of water skis, tubes, kneeboards, and wakeboards when used in fresh water, except the Boston Whaler, which only includes a tube for children under 13 upon request.
While every effort is made to deliver boats by 4pm on Saturdays so they are at the property when vacationers arrive - rentals are technically 10am Sunday to 4pm Friday - allowing one day a week for cleaning and servicing between rentals.
If you are renting a boat for multiple weeks, you'll get to keep the boat through Saturdays in-between rental periods at no extra charge. However, you must add on each week separately when processing the booking.
Don't wait until the day before you arrive to rent boats from us - they all book out each summer well in advance. If you want a boat on vacation - book it when you rent your vacation property to ensure availability.
