Late Start/End Time Policy

Due to scheduling constraints with different boats being launched and pulled out at different times during the day, we ask our customers to be diligent about being on time for their agreed upon start and end times.  Please give yourself plenty of time so you can load the boat with your items and have our staff go over the operation of the watercraft.

Okanagan Lake Boat Rentals reserves the right to charge a late fee of $50.00 to any customer that is over 30 minutes late to their scheduled start or end time.  

Fuel Policy

Your boat will come fueled up and ready to go for the day.

At the end of the rental the customer must have the boat filled up with gas. 

On-Water Option:

This can be done by the customer themselves on the water. There are several on-water locations to fuel around the Kelowna area as well as the El Dorado Marina which is our main launching point.  On-Water fueling is substantially more expensive than off-water fuel prices.

Off-Water Option:

We can have the boat filled up on your behalf by our staff off-water for a $0.15/litre surcharge over the fuel rate on that day.  The overall cost will still be less than that of an on-water fill up.  We will fill the boat and show you a copy of the receipt and charge your card the appropriate rate.
