Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to some common questions, please feel free to call us if you have any questions not covered below.

1. Boating Questions

Q: Do I need a boater's licence?

We recommend that you have a boater's license which you can obtain at https://www.boatsmartexam.com/ca/. However, you can rent a boat without a boat license. Lakefront Sports Centre will supply you with a temporary boater's license.

Q: Does insurance cover any damage to the equipment?

No, the person who rents the boat is liable for any and all damages. When you rent equipment from Lakefront Sport Centre, we do a pre-authorization on your credit card. This will be used in the event that there are damages. There is a thorough orientation and documentation of any pre-existing scratches or damages prior to you taking out the equipment.

Q: Is the cost of fuel included?

When you rent a boat it will come with a full tank of gas.  When you return the rental, the tank will be filled and you will be charged only for the fuel that was used.

When you rent a jetski, fuel is included in the rental fee.

Q: How old do you have to be to rent a boat?

All renters must be 19 years of age or older.

Q: Can anyone drive the boat once I rent it?

Only the person who originally rented the boat can drive it.

Q: Can we drink or use marijuana on the boat?

No. We have a zero tolerance policy for all drugs and alcohol. This also applies to marijuana. Using any kind of substance could seriously impair your ability to safely operate the vessel and put your passengers and other boaters on the lake at risk.

Q: Do I need to bring my own lifejackets?

Lakefront Sport Centre supplies lifejackets to everyone who will be on board.

Q: Can I bring my dog with me?
