The check-out process includes:
Checking that each registered Operator is eligible to operate the boat. A copy of a driving license and Boating License if appropriate will be required for all Operators.
Checking that all Operators and Guests on the boat are properly registered and have reviewed / signed documents and waivers.

If all documents have been reviewed online prior to the rental time, a final electronic signature (along with proof of age / boating license for Operators) is all that is required at the marina.
No pets are allowed on the boats.
Gas is not included. When you pick the boat up for your rental, it will be full of fuel. When you return, our dockhands will assist you to fill up the boat at the gas dock at Pebble Isle Marina and pay for the gas used in the Ships Store.
Customers are prohibited from bringing gas cans onboard the boat and are not allowed to refuel the boat from cans, as this can be highly dangerous.
On a full day rental, if the boat is run continuously, it will use more than a tank of gas during the rental period. Variables like weight, water current and wind conditions all impact fuel efficiency. Customers should monitor the fuel gauge on the boat continuously and are encouraged to refuel the boat at any marina. There will always be a final top-up of fuel at the end of the rental at Pebble Isle Marina.
The Coast Guard plate allows up to 12 people / 2,000 pounds maximum weight on the boat. You will not be allowed on the boat if your party exceeds those numbers.
Renters should bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
The boat does have a bimini top, but does not provide shade in every area of the boat. We recommend bringing hats / clothing to cover up from the sun when you need to.
Renters should bring a cooler with a supply of cold drinks.
Our rental boats include a tow bar. Renters are only allowed to tow tubes supplied by Pebble Isle Boat Rentals. Tubes are available to rent at time of reservation, or can be added at check-in.
We do not allow skiing, wakeboarding or surfing behind our boats.
For safety reasons, rental boats are not allowed to tow another boat, and cannot be towed by another boat unless it is being towed by the Marina’s TowBoat US service. Renters are provided with emergency contact information in the event a tow is needed.
Our pontoon boats are not purpose built for fishing. If you are intent on a full day of fishing, we recommend finding a boat rental company that hires boats specifically designed for fishing. We do allow fishing from the boat, as we recognize that some customers may want to try fishing during a day on the lake. However, fishing with live bait can leave a lot of mess on a pontoon boat and we request that customers keep the boat clean. In the event the boat is returned excessively dirty, management reserves the right to assess an additional minimum $50 fee for cleaning the boat at the end of the rental.
50% Payment is required to reserve a boat, with the balance due on the day of Check-In.
Pricing varies by day, but is shown on our bookings page for available dates.
Cancellations made within 24 hours of rental time forfeit entire fee

Renter is responsible for damage and liability while on a boat rental.
We do offer optional insurance, which we highly recommend renters purchase. There are three levels of insurance coverages to choose from which are available to purchase at the time your rental is booked or can be added at the marina when checking out the boat. A summary of the coverages is available to review online when reserving your boat, and also in the Marina Store. The policy is directly with the insurance company. In the unfortunate event that renter is responsible for any charges for damages / liability, renter pays those charges at the end of rental and subsequently submits a claim for reimbursement of costs covered by the insurance policy.
Boats and boating equipment can be expensive. To be transparent, we include a listing of equipment and towing costs in the Marina Store. For example, replacing a propellor can cost $350, a tube can cost $300, Towing costs $225 an hour (minimum 30-minute charge), fenders with fasteners can cost $50 and damaging the boat itself can run into $’000s. For peace of mind, we encourage all renters to purchase an insurance policy.
