step two

arrive at dock

At our Sister Bay location, parking is available on the East side of Hwy 42 across the street from our dock. Our Fish Creek location offers street parking right downtown. At our Gills Rock location, parking is available at the marina or in the public park just North. Please see the parking maps. Feel free to drop your group off near the dock before parking. We highly recommend the driver(s) of the boat check in no later than 30 minutes prior to the start of the rental. An orientation will be provided to the driver(s) explaining the operation of the boat and a map of the area showing where to go and more importantly, where not to go. Once you get to the check in location, take a deep breath and mentally prepare yourself for the most fun you’ll have in Door County!

You will be expected to return to the dock no later than the end time of your rental period. Our boats leave with a full tank of fuel and we will fill them upon your return. Fuel is not included in your rental. After fueling the boat we will inform you of your total. That’s it! Now grab a drink and some food and reflect on your fantastic day on the water!

We do allow dogs, however, we ask that you bring a towel or blanket to cover the seats with if they will be on them. Remember, YOU are responsible for any damage to the boat.
Not at all! Our crew will provide you with an orientation on how to operate the boat as well as go over a map of the area explaining where to go and where not to go. We will put you in the best position to feel comfortable.

If your rental period is shortened due to bad weather and you must return to the dock, we will prorate your time and only charge you for the time you were out. Learn More about our cancellation policy

If you hit bottom and damage the propeller, call us immediately and we will assist. As long as you listen to the driving orientation, you shouldn’t have any problems.
