Can I bring my pet(s)?
Pets are currently not permitted.
Can I bring a grill?
No grills, heating devices, or open flames are permitted on our boats. You are welcome to grill food to bring on your rental in the upper parking lot. No grilling is permitted in the lower lot, deck, or rental areas.
Do I need to have any experience driving boats to rent one?
No experience is needed to rent any of our boats. We will give you an overview of how to operate the boat before you leave the dock.

Where am I allowed and not allowed to go while renting?
There are a few places that we do not allow our customers to take our motorized boats. This is to protect the motor from hitting any shallow areas. These restricted areas can be found by clicking here.

Do you sell any fishing bait or rent fishing equipment?
We sell night crawlers by the dozen. We do not have any other kind of bait or fishing gear.

Do you sell or auction off your boats at the end of the season?
No we do not.

Do I need a fishing license to fish at Moraine State Park?
Moraine State Park and Lake Arthur is state owned. By law, anyone age 16 and over fishing in public water is required to have a visible fishing license on them. We do not sell licenses at Crescent Bay, but you can get one at most sporting good stores.

What happens if the boat is damaged during rental?
Safety is our number one concern for our customers, equipment, and others on the lake. For this reason, we are very specific on where our customers can and cannot go while renting and will explain how to be safe prior to undocking. If our boat(s) become damaged during rental, the customer may be responsible for the damage. The most common types of damage caused to our boats are broken propellers from traveling too close to shore and, in rare cases, damaged lower units. Broken propellers will incur a fee of up to $175 and damaged lower units will incur a fee of $800. Please avoid shallow areas and follow the safety instructions explained by our crew to avoid any chance of injury or damage occurring. Private towing is also a service we provide for a minimum of $80.
