Summer Boat Renting: FAQs

With the warm weather and picturesque scenery, summer is the perfect time of year to rent a boat and get out on the beautiful, North Carolina waters. At Motor Boatin, the summer months are some of our busiest, and with that, we receive all kinds of questions in regards to our boat rentals. In this blog post, we wanted to answer some of those frequently asked questions.

Here are some common summer boat rental questions:

How do I reserve a pontoon boat, fishing boat, or jet ski? The easiest way to reserve a rental is to head to https://motor-boatin.com/ and click the button under “Check Availability.” This will allow you to see what options are available on your desired date. You may call or text 919-800-9716 for additional questions about reserving your boat.

How far in advance should I book? This always depends, but earlier is always better. Some weekends, we are fully booked weeks in advance, and some we are not booked until the night before. Be especially mindful of holiday weekends throughout the summer. As soon as you know a date, call us and we can help you get reserved.

Where is the boat delivered to? The boat is delivered to Hwy 50 Boat Ramp, 13900 Creedmoor Road, Wake Forest, NC 27587. There is a $7 entrance fee, and parking is at the complete opposite end of the launching slips.

Is gas included in the price? Prices do not include fuel. You will start with a full tank of gas, and fuel consumption will vary depending on your usage. We will fill it up for you and charge the card on file for your convenience. Please do not bring your own gas – usually it is not what we put in the equipment, so it can damage the boats!

Can I bring my pet along? Of course! We love when furry friends are able tag along for the boat day. If you bring a pet, there will be a $30 fee for one and $45 fee for two. However, please keep the animals off the seats. Pets are not allowed on the following boats: Red Hurricane Sundeck, Mr. Blueberry, Tuffy, or Slimer.
