Q:

Could you please let me know how much would it cost to upgrade to a boat that would accommodate 4 adults and a five year old child? Thank you.

Sharan M.  asked on  Mar 20, 2013

A:

Sharan, depending on everyone's combined weight, the runabout may be able to accomodate you. Otherwise, you could upgrade to a deckboat for $10 more. Please see our website for information and photos of all our boats.

Q:

Quick question - Does renting a boat require any type of license? Or lessons to complete prior to getting on board? Thanks.

Pierre B.  asked on  Mar 20, 2013

A:

Pierre, no, a license is not needed. Nor are lessions. If you can drive a car, you can drive a boat. We do, however, go over the operation of the boat and the "rules of the road" with all renters.

Q:

Also, would fishing be at all allowed on the boat? Assuming we both had our ocean water license

Adam S.  asked on  Mar 20, 2013

A:

Fishing is only allowed in our ocean fishing boat. You would need to apply your Groupons toward an upgrade to the Boston Whaler. Please see our website for more information on this boat.

Q:

If I purchase 2 hours and my wife purchases 2 hours, can we stay out in the ocean for 4 hours? Or would we have to come back after the first 2 hours and then start the second 2 hours?

Adam S.  asked on  Mar 20, 2013

A:

Adam, yes, you and your wife may combine your Groupons for a four hour rental. You mentioned "ocean" in your question... the runabouts may only be used in Newport harbor. If you want to go to the ocean, you would need to upgrade to an ocean boat.
