Rental Requirements

If you are not a graduate of our school, and would like to rent our boats, you will need to have an orientation. The orientation is our way of introducing you to our facility, protocols, equipment and local waters. There are no exceptions to this requirement. Orientations are to be scheduled on the same day as your first rental, please call at least 3 days in advance. If you choose to do your Orientation prior to the day of your first rental you must schedule and pay for your rental in advance. Please click here for details about Orientation & Requirements.
