Our ski boats are already in the water, so no need to hassle with the public boat launch! These boats are most suitable for guests with prior boating experience, for beginner boaters we highly recommend renting one of our pontoon boats. For extra fun, rent a tow package that includes a wakeboard, knee board, or tube, or you may bring your own towable. Pets are allowed on ski boats, with a $20 pet fee to account for additional cleaning. Pets should stay on the floor and not on boat seats. Fuel is additional and renters are responsible for any and all damages to the boats. We highly recommend making a reservation online prior to arriving, as we do tend to sell out. We do take walk-in reservations in our preset time-slots when available. Prices vary based on day of the week and time slot, with the most economical time slot being morning weekday rentals.
Here's how it works:
- Reserve your ski boat online (below).
- Arrive at the Cultus Lake Resort Lodge 30 minutes prior to your rental time to make sure rental paperwork is complete. All guests will need to sign release forms.
- Head down to the marina to meet your Watercraft Concierge for the day
- Receive 15-20 minutes of safety and equipment instruction
- Have fun on the boat!
- Return your watercraft when your rental time slot is over
- Marina staff will check the watercraft for damages
- Stick around to sign check-out paperwork in the marina
Summer boat rentals will be available for reservation on March 1st, 2024
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I tow a tube or water skier with the ski boats?
Yes, towing is allowed on this boat. You may rent our tow package or bring your own towables. Towing capacity is 250lbs on the Bayliner Element E18.
Can I pull up onshore around the lake?
We do not allow this boat to be pulled up onshore, however we provide ropes and anchors so that you can safely keep the boat in adequate water depths while you explore or swim.
We have friends in the Day Use area or Cultus Lake Campground, can I take the watercraft over there?
No, we do not allow our rentals to travel to the Day Use area, the Cultus Lake Campground, or the public boat launch area or dock. If we see you travel there, you will forfeit any remaining rental time with no refund. Those areas are shallow and rocky, and the chances of damaging the propeller are high. Those areas are completely off limits to our watercraft, all guests must board the boat from the Cultus Lake Resort dock.
What is the cancellation policy?
Boat rentals are required to be paid in full up front. Reservations may be cancelled with 2 weeks notice and issued a full refund. Reservations that are cancelled within 2 weeks of the rental date will be issued a voucher for rescheduling. No changes to reservation dates/times can be made within 72 hours of your rental time. Cancellations occurring within 72 hours of your rental time will result in a forfeiture of the rental cost. Boat rentals are rain or shine, no refunds/vouchers will be issued for poor weather or smokey conditions. Should our marina staff determine that lake conditions are too dangerous for boats to launch, refunds and/or vouchers will be issued to guests.
