I wish I could give a lower than 1 star rating because that is what this marina deserves in regard to their rentals . Our first time renting a pontoon boat here was reasonably pleasant. We got a newer boat and although the navigation lights were smashed, the boat was clean and drivable. We had rented it for just 24 hours. The second time, we rented for 3 days. We got an older boat with badly torn seats. Ok, so we just threw towels over them. It was unpleasant dealing with the tick infestation in the carpeting for 3 days but otherwise the carpet was fairly clean and the boat was drivable. This week, we had reserved a boat for 1 week. After 2 hours we had to return the boat to the marina. The ONLY seat which was not broken was the Captains chair. There was good reason. The Captain s chair was mounted so far back from the steering console that you could NOT sit in the chair to drive the boat. ALL of the other seating groups were so badly broken that when you sat on them, you fell through into the storage compartments! Apparently all their other rentals were reserved for later in the week so they would not give us another boat to use but did issue a full refund. This was hardly compensation for the ruined vacation plans however.

This is a nice, clean little marina that is well used by boaters. They have a small shop with things such as oil, rope, snacks, tubes & life jackets and gasoline. The prices are average.

PROS: easy acsess from boat
CONS: limited hours
