    27’ Luxury Premier Pontoon for Rent on Lake Minnetonka, Wayzata

    My friends and I had a fantastic time with Pete on his boat! He was a great captain, boat was in good shape and very spacious, and he was flexible in working with our group to figure out the best way to use our time on the boat. He was responsive and helpful in the planning process. Highly recommend!!!

    27’ Luxury Premier Pontoon for Rent on Lake Minnetonka, Wayzata

    Captain Pete was fabulous - the boat was the perfect size for our group. Very clean and spacious for us to spread out and sit in the shade. Pete responded quickly each time I had a question or itinerary change. He even agreed to let us extend our trip because we were having so much fun. He took us to a few bars around the lake and helped us load up our coolers at the beginning. Pick up and drop off was a breeze. Highly recommend a day with Pete if you’re looking for a fun day!

    Pete was great!! We had a wonderful time on our bachelorette trip with him, despite a big storm rolling through. Pete’s expert navigation skills kept us safe and dry - except when we jumped in the lake of course! Would highly recommend Captain Pete for anyone’s boat day adventures!

    27’ Luxury Premier Pontoon for Rent on Lake Minnetonka, Wayzata

    Our group had a great time aboard Captain Pete's boat. He was very personable and helpful during the entire process. I would highly recommend hiring Pete as your captain if you are looking for a nice, relaxing cruise on the lake with business associates or friends. Can't wait to do it again!

    Captain Pete was amazing! We were able to bring our own drinks and food onto the boat. He even helped me carry down the few boxes that I had down to the boat so I didn't have to do so many trips. His communication was fast and thorough. We will be booking again with Pete for future trips!

About Lake Minnetonka

The only time to visit Lake Minnetonka is during the summer and early autumn months. Winter in Minnesota is brutal and the lake is completely frozen - so no boat rentals during this season. If you visit during the summer and rent a boat, make sure you bring plenty of food and drinks on board for a picnic while cruising. There are supermarkets in all the major towns around Lake Minnetonka to stock up like Lunds, Aldi, and Trader Joe’s.

The weather in the summer is mostly warm and pleasant, but always check the forecast as storms can occur during these months and it can become dangerous to be on the lake. The water is usually warm enough to swim in from mid-June through September. The water is safe for swimming, but be aware that there are lots of weeds in the lake.
