Rain Policy

  1. Our rain policy only covers boaters renting for a full day or less.
  2. Please do not call to reschedule prior to your scheduled rental reservation; we are located in the Adirondack Mountains and poor weather forecasts do occur frequently!
  3. If it is raining in Bolton Landing, NY at the time of your scheduled boat reservation departure time, you may then choose to use your payment for another day, subject to availability, without expiration, no cash refunds will be given, you will receive a “rain check”, only.
  4. If you receive a rain check, you can not downgrade to a smaller boat, however you may choose to upgrade to a larger boat.

We’d like to thank you for understanding our policies as we do our best to manage our business with the unpredictability of Mother Nature.
