Where to Go / What to Do.
We suggest water sports like tubing and kneeboarding in a cove close to the marina, anchoring in a cove and relaxing in the waves on floatables tied to the boat, grill something up on the boat, or just jet around where the South River meets the bay. Rod holders are available upon request if you want to do some fishing.
If you're an experienced boater, or when the wind is low (and forecasted to stay low, like 1-4 mph, then a trip out into the bay where you can see the bay bridge and lighthouse is fun. With any wind though, it gets too choppy for this size boat, so this would be an "as wind permits" kinda thing. We recommend sticking with tubing, floating and fishing.

Q. How far can I go?
A. If you're an experienced boater, and/or when the wind is low (and forecasted to stay low, like 1-4 mph, then a trip out into the bay where you can see the bay bridge and lighthouse is fun. With any wind though, it gets too choppy for this size boat, so this would be an "as wind permits" kinda thing. We recommend staying within the river and coves and not venture out into the bay unless you have a lot of experience.
Q. What about Life Jackets?
A. The boat is equipped with 6 Adult/Youth size life vests at all times. Upon request, an addition 2 universal life vests (the orange type) can be provided. All children under the age of 13 must wear a life vest at all times while moving. Renters are responsible for ensuring children have properly fitting life vests and must bring them aboard if needed.
John was very nice and super responsive. There was a slight mechanical issue with the boat during the rental day, but we were able to work out the issue due to John's responsiveness and phone availability during the day. Would definitely recommend him to a friend!
