Book Boat Rental Now


You must have a NASBLA approved boater’s license to operate a boat in the State of New Hampshire with an engine larger than 25 HP. However, to better serve our customers, we can administer an online test so that you may obtain a 14-day Temporary Boating Safety Certificate.

Below is a link to the NH Boater’s Guide that you can use to study for the test. We strongly recommend that you allow 1-2 hours to study and take the exam any time prior to your rental pick up. There is a $20 fee to take the test, pass or fail. If you do fail, you must wait 24 hours before trying again. Give us a call if you need more information on this requirement or to discuss your options.

Our fleet does include five boats with 25 HP engines that can be operated without a boater’s license. For more details on those boats, click the BOOK NOW button above.
