Included in the rental fee is the use of our exclusive map and destination guide. Our guide has maps of the local waterways and Cape Coral Canals along with information on local points of interest. We have also included directions and menus for many local waterfront restaurants! The above instructions are available at no additional cost to the renter. As a service, we offer on-the-water instruction for an additional charge. This is an optional service, but mandatory for those without any boating experience. The cost is $100 for the first hour and then $50 an hour if additional time is needed, if we have availability.
Vest style life jackets are available on request at no additional charge. (The standard orange life jackets are already on board). Every boat is also equipped with Garmin GPS Marine navigation unit, four lines, two fenders, a boat hook, front and rear anchors, float-able throw cushion, horn, flares and first aid kit. There is a cooler on every boat for food or beverages (not fish / bait). Sorry, we do not have toilets in any of our boats.
We don’t charge any additional fees for check in/out or boat cleaning, but should the boat be returned in a filthy condition, especially if used for fishing, then we reserve the right to make an appropriate cleaning charge of no less than $50 and no more than $100.
We also offer a delivery and pick up service to your dock in Cape Coral – $150-$250, depending on the location. These charges include fuel used to get the boat to your location and back to one of our locations. The optional delivery service is for multi-day rentals of 3 consecutive days or more. Please note: Overnight rentals must be in Cape Coral and Fort Myers only (not allowed in NW Cape Coral or houses located directly on the Caloosahatchee River)
Fishing allowed on our Reel Banana and Explorer 150F only.
A 20% deposit is required to hold your reservation and is non-refundable within 30 days of rental. We accept cash and all major credit cards.
All of our boats are insured with $500,000 third party liability insurance and complete hull damage insurance with a $1,000 deductible. There is no additional charge for this insurance, however, should the insurance be used for a claim, renter would be responsible for the deductible. Operation of the vessel is only permitted between sunrise and sunset if you have a multiple day rental. Operation of our vessels in seas greater than 2 ft. is considered irresponsible and negligent and therefore renters responsibility for catastrophic damages that may occur. Theft is the responsibility of the renter only.
All boats are covered by Tow Boat’s commercial towing coverage for any mechanical issues. This covers all breakdowns. For all other groundings, negligence or running out of gas that would require towing, the cost is the responsibility of the renter.
All Renters must be 33 years of age or older or must be 28 yrs old and possess a FL Safe Boater Card. If you’ve successfully completed an official boating safety course that is approved by the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA), your boater education card is welcome in every state that requires mandatory boater education
