Waivers: Only one (1) waiver is needed per boat rental.
*We no longer offer barbecue grills on any of our vessels and no personal grills are allowed to be brought onto our vessels.
*We are unable to guarantee one particular boat over another.
*Due to our high altitude marine environment, not all boats have working radios. Please feel free to bring along your own music.
*We do not provide coolers aboard our vessels but you may bring your own.
If you have any questions about what is or is not available on our boats prior to your arrival, please feel free to give us a call.
PEAK SEASON: June 22nd -September 1st, 2019: Rentals are available from 8:00am-7:00pm.
OFF PEAK SEASONS: May 24th-June 21st, 2019 & September 2nd-September 30th, 2019: Rentals are available from 9:30am- 4:30pm.
Rentals may be available after September 30th, weather depending. Call to request. Any rental returned after a "scheduled" return time will incur a late fee of $75.00 + any additional rental time used.
RENTAL PERIODS:All boats require a minimum of 2 hours. Our most popular rental periods are two, three and four-hour rentals, but you are welcome to call us for additional hours. The rental begins at the "scheduled" start time, not the time you leave the dock. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled start time to go through a reservoir orientation and a boat check-out.
A reservation may be cancelled at any time prior to 48 hours before your scheduled rental, with no penalty. Reservations cancelled within 48 hours will incur a cancellation penalty of 20% of the rental fee which will be charged to your credit card. Weather policy: In case of inclement weather (at the time of your rental), you may cancel your reservation with no penalty if the boat does not leave the dock. Once you leave the dock, there is a 2 hour minimum on every rental. For example, if you've rented the boat for 3 hours and return after 1 hour due to weather, you will only be charged for 2 hours rather than the 3 hour rental period.
TAXES & FEES:
Boat rental prices do not include tax (8.875%) or the 6% Fareharbor booking fee (when booked online). Feel free to call us to book @ 970-468-5100.
FUEL:All boat rentals INCLUDE the cost of fuel. Boat rental rates do not include tax (8.875%)
AGE RESTRICTIONS:Boat skippers must be at least 18 years old. All crew on sailboats must be 5 years of age or older.
BOAT CAPACITY:Maximum boat capacity for each boat type includes ALL persons aboard (including infants and children) and cannot be negotiated. If you are found to have more passengers on board than the boat allows, you will be charged for a second boat for the same rental period you booked. There are sheriff patrol boats on the lake who watch for this. Please respect this rule as it is there for your safety and the safety of your passengers.
LIFE JACKETS:Life jackets are included in the cost of the rental. All children 13 and under are required to wear their life jackets at all times. Adult life jackets are provided aboard each boat for the maximum capacity of that boat and adults can choose whether or not to wear them.
RENTAL REQUIREMENTS:All captains must be at least 18 years of age to operate any of our rental boat. A credit card and a drivers license must be left at the marina as security while on the water. Boats will NOT be rented without these documents.
CAPTAINS FOR HIRE:
A captain can be added to any rental for an additional $70.00/hour in addition to the rental boat charge. We ask for at least a week's notice if you would like a captain aboard your boat. We will accommodate your request if possible. If you require a captain aboard your vessel, you must call and reserve via phone.
DRINKING WHILE BOATING:
Colorado Law States: It is illegal to operate any boat under the influence of alcohol! The same rules and levels while driving a car apply to boating as well. You are more than welcome to bring alcohol aboard the boat, but please be sure and bring a DD.
FISHING:We DO NOT sell fishing licenses and stock very limited fishing supplies in our ship store. If you plan on fishing, it is a good idea to obtain these items prior to renting a boat.
RESERVOIR RESTRICTIONS:Swimming, jet skiing, waterskiing and tubing are not allowed on the reservoir. Kayaks, canoes are allowed with the use of a life jacket, and Stand Up Paddleboards are allowed with the use of a PFD (life jacket) and leash.
The speed limit on the reservoir is 30 mph.
Dogs of all sizes ARE allowed on our rental pontoons and are not part of the boat capacity. We do not allow dogs on our rental sailboats, with the exception of certified support animals. Please protect our boats from excessive hair and any other messes as you would your own property. Boats returned in a unsatisfactory state will be charged a $50.00 minimum cleaning fee.
SAILING WRITTEN EXAM:
All sailboat renters are required to pass a brief written exam as a part of the check-in process, even with current certification through the American Sailing Association or U.S. Sailing. The exam takes less than 15 minutes and includes basic sailing terminology, motor operation and emergency procedures. If you're rusty on your knowledge, take the ASA Online Sailing Course to brush up.
Waiver Note: Only One (1) Required per rental!
