BERMUDA'S BIGGEST

RENTAL BOATS!

  

BOSTON WHALER & PONTOON BOAT RENTALS

FROM HAMILTON CITY, BERMUDA

(441) 236-2200

 

Visiting Bermuda?  Want total independence? Rent a self-drive boat and find seclusion, romance and adventure! Snorkel, picnic on an island beach, visit a shipwreck, feed the fish, pass under Somerset drawbridge, and explore spectacular west-end coastlines all at your own pace!! It's what WE do for fun on our days off! We know all the best spots for each activity through years of extensive 'personal research' and will go to great lengths to see that you don't miss anything un-missable! Our foam cored, unsinkable whalers and pontoon boats are simple to operate and you’ll receive full instruction, and advice on where to go and what to do, with an easy to follow map to guide you to the best boating and snorkeling locations. Our boat rentals all have canopies and are equipped with such extras as an emergency-use cell phone, a cooler (ice available at cost price), dry storage bags and swim noodles. Snorkel gear is available on request for $10 a set (mask, snorkel and fins).

 

 

Or are you a bermuda resident who'd love to get out on the water every now and then but don't want the hassle and expense of owning your own boat? This is a great activity to book when friends and family visit.

Boston Whaler Boat Rentals

 

FEATURES WE PROVIDE STANDARD ON ALL BOATS:

 

·         Emergency-use cell phones. Probably the single best feature for eliminating needless worries and rescues. Our customers can contact us instantly in the event of any kind of problem or concern. If lost, they can call us before they get too far off course for instant guidance. As a result, we never have to go looking for our boats. Why didn't anyone else think of it?

·         Electric Start engines with power trim and tilt. As of June 2008 we are the first to offer more than 30hp motors in keeping with the recently revised policy concerning the maximum engine size allowable on rental boats.

·         Oversized fuel tanks (15-20 gallons rather than the 6 gallon tanks standard elsewhere). Our boats NEVER run out of fuel.

·         In-line fuel filter system to prevent break down due to water in fuel. This is one of the leading causes of break down in outboard powered boat rentals and it is so simple to prevent. As a result, we will tempt fate by saying that we have never had a breakdown-related rescue yet, in 4 years! In fact, our renters have frequently had the joy of rescuing the competitions' boats!

·         Automatic electric bilge pumps in Boston whalers to keep feet dry. No bailing or manual pumps necessary.

·         Rigid, hard-mounted 3ft long swim ladders (easier and safer to use than the removable type that hook over the  side)

·        Large shady canopies to keep the sun off.

·         Noodles (swim floats) so you don't have to lug along your own.

·         Dry-storage bags for towels and valuables (on whalers only) to keep things safe and dry no matter how wet things get. Our Beachcats have under-seat and in-console storage.

·         A bag of bread to feed the fish out at the Vixen!

·         More space! (even our whalers offer more space than the biggest boats available elsewhere)

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES OFFERED ON OUR NEW 23ft 'BEACH CAT' PONTOON BOAT

INSTRUCTION

 

Though it is sometimes helpful, NO BOATING EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY (but common sense is a pre-requisite!). Our Customers receive 20-40 minutes (depending on their comfort level) of instruction and orientation from an experienced instructor so that by the time they depart they have a better than average understanding of boating basics and where they are headed. Our on-board laminated snorkel guides and maps are informative and easy to follow and have been designed specifically for our rental business to maximize our customers’ experience. This instruction session is then backed up with an on board cell phone which keeps the renter only a call away from several avenues of live assistance. We're always ready to help!

FISHING

Fishing is permitted on any of our boats but we reserve the right to remove the cushions from the boat to protect them for other renters . Fishing gear is not supplied but a basic kit can be easily purchased in Hamilton at Fly Bridge tackle on Church St. for less than $15. Fishermen are expected to keep the boat reasonably clean (i.e. free from dried on chunks of bait, fish scales, smell etc) otherwise an additional fee may be charged for clean-up. We supply a cutting board, bucket and cleaning equipment. We ask that you do not use our cooler for fish or bait. Bring your own if you plan to keep the fish you catch. If you are renting in the morning please be especially considerate of the next rental group as there is not normally sufficient time between rentals to allow for a complete wash-down of the boat. Please inform us if you intend to fish so that we can schedule rental times accordingly.

 

NOTE TO VISITING AND CASUAL FISHERMEN - This is not normally the best way to experience fishing in Bermuda. We find that casual and inexperienced fishermen rarely catch anything, as they do not have the necessary know how. Also, due to the decreased chances of survival of fish that HAVE been caught and released, we actively discourage casual fishing on board our boats. If you want a good fishing experience where all the equipment is supplied and you are guaranteed to catch something worthwhile, we would suggest a Reef Fishing trip with Mike Baxter www.bermudareeffishing.com.

cancellation policy (valid as of January 2009):

Except in the event of unsuitable weather (weather call must be made within 2 hours of rental by an Aquatic Bermuda representative), if notice of cancellation is received within the periods outlined below, or if you do not arrive for your rental on the day, the full rental rate will be retained from the credit card used to hold the reservation. If you are late arriving for your rental please call to inform us. if you are more than 30 minutes late and we have had no communication from you, we reserve the right to cancel your reservation without further notification.

 

Weekday rentals - 48 hours (2 days) notice of cancellation required

Weekend rentals - 96 hours (4 days) notice of cancellation required

Holiday rentals - 7 days notice of cancellation required

 

Q: "So what should I do if the weather forecast looks bad for the day I have booked?"

 

A: As long as you are not within the cancellation period, you have the opportunity to cancel with no penalty if you are truly doubtful that the weather will be nice enough. However, we strongly discourage you from doing this simply because very often the forecast is incorrect and the day might end up perfect! In this case, If you cancelled several days prior, then you will have lost out on a good day. WE DO NOT CHARGE you if you cannot go because of bad weather and will not insist that you go on a day that we agree is unpleasant or dangerous. The best time to make the final decision is within 2 hours of the start of your rental when the forecast is most accurate. If you cancel before that time within the cancellation period then you will be charged the cancellation fee outlined above.
