Get out on the water during our all-too-short summer season The boat is a 2004 Bayliner 185, which is an 18 footer. The boat has a brand new 220hp motor with less than 20 hours on it! The boat tops out at about 40mph, which feels much different on the water. A 3 person tube is available-- it can fit up to 3 adults and is super fun. Book the Deck Boat for up to 8 people, and that would include me as Captain, as far as people capacity (I am generally available to Captain, but this is not required). The experience is most comfortable fitting about 5-6 adults-- just a little more elbow room. Not sure of the exact name, but behind the back seats, there is an area to lay. I've called it the sun deck. Fits 1-2 adults. Inboard/outboard motor is very smooth and quiet. For little ones, this is a huge factor. My little ones were really put off (translation: terrified) by how loud some outboard motors can be. This will make all the difference in the world of you have kids maybe 10 and under who are not experienced on the water. I've boated for over a decade and this has held true across many families. Each booking includes a gift basket, customized based on the group's composition and event type. Rate as low as $150 per hour. Half day or more includes basic meal and drink package (think sandwiches, chips, drinks) Half day (4 hour): $500; Full day (8 hours): $800; 3 day: $2,000. Full week: $4,500. **If you rent a morning or evening block, where another booking right before or is unlikely, I will offer additional hours at a 50% rate per hour ($75 vs $150). Maybe get a few people out a few hours of quiet fishing before the group arrives, or stay a bit and catch the sunset. If you want to ensure the success of your group's booking, however, please don't book a shorter period and expect that will be available. That really varies. Trailering to and from lake are during your rental times, so please factor that in. Meaning if it takes you 30 minutes to get to your lake, 15 minutes to get in the water, and about the same on the back end, a 2 hour booking would give you about 30 minutes on the water. Unlike many available listings, you're not limited to just the lake that the boat happens to be in. Standard $150/hr rate means you will pick up at my house (with your own tow-capable vehicle), pilot the boat yourself, and top off gas prior to return to same home location in Woodbury. Again, if no immediate bookings, I will offer an extension of time for that 50% reduced rate. This includes everything needed to operate the boat (life jackets, keys, drain plug, USB charging ports and charger wires, etc.). Cleaning fees not required unless the boat comes back a real mess. Birthday parties, reunions, a happy hour on a very private float. Bachelor(ette) parties, sunset/sunrise experience. Fishing with friends, kids, or by your lonesome. Fall foliage tours. Pull up to the sandbar and socialize. Anniversaries, proposals, brunches. Make it an annual tradition (repeat bookings will receive a discount). We have the good, neoprene life jackets not those dreadful, orange, square things! Nice to put on like a diaper and float, wear while tubing, and more. Sometimes I just toss one out and float on it with a beverage. Custom meal packages available-- please specify dietary restrictions, etc. Life is just better on a boat. Once away from shore a bit, there are few bugs, if any. That's a huge plus over being on shore. For special events, we are able to provide and coordinate as comprehensive an experience as you wish, from the very simple, to the very exciting. Discounts available: please inquire based on a status. Additional fees for the following, and we can accommodate a few things with advanced notice and dependent on your desired price point. Captain: $75/hr Tube: $50 per trip Fishing equipment: $20 per setup. This includes a single, shared tackle box and seasonal bait, minnows, something. Fishing license not provided. Please see https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/licenses/fishing/index.html for fishing license information. Delivery/trailering (unless you pick up and drop back off): distance dependent. If very local, not as big of a deal. Pick up/drop off of party members: distance and quantity dependent. My vehicle holds up to 8 but the 3rd row is that typical not very spacious. If you can think of if, we can probably accommodate it. We think that's a nice change, as compared to a limited number of options. It's YOUR day, so why shouldn't you have the option? 5 stars is what we live for. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer!!
Family with a boat. Like most, we have kids, work, and can't get out as much as we'd like. We decided on the best of both worlds, so here we are! Really focused on what the customer wants. We've been on the other side of that and think kindness, accessibility, and good service should be much more universal. I would say expect nothing short of a 5 star experience. It's a 2004, and it's not a million dollar boat, so "5 star" means within reason.
You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.
