What is included with my rental?

All of our watercraft include life vests and a trailer so you can tow them to your favorite attractions in California such as Lake Tahoe, Woodward Reservoir, and more. Our boats come with safety equipment required by the Coast Guard. The ski boats also come with ski ropes for water sports.

If you’re ready for a day of thrilling fun, we have a huge selection of water tubes, water skis, wakeboards, wakesurf boards, and kneeboards for rent.

What kind of vehicle and trailer hookups will I need to transport my rentals?

  • Jet ski: You can tow our jet skis with any vehicle that has trailering capabilities. Your vehicle also needs to have a 2-inch ball and a flat 4-prong electrical connector for trailer lights.
  • Reinell ski boat: You’ll need a minimum V-6 engine with trailering capabilities.
  • Elite V-Drive boat: Your vehicle must have a minimum V-6 engine (although a V-8 is recommended) with a 4,500 lb. towing capacity.
  • Enzo V-Drive boat: You’ll need a minimum V-8 engine with a 5000 lb. towing capacity. You’ll also need a 2-inch ball and flat 4-prong electrical connector for trailer lights.
  • Pontoon boat: Make sure you have a 2-inch ball and flat 5-prong electrical connector for trailer lights.

Also note that a 7-pin round to 4-pin flat or a vehicle side female works on our trailers.

Where can I use my boat rental or jet ski rental?

Our location in Tracy is en route to some of the best waterways and lakes in California. If you want to ride on-site, we’re located on the California Delta. You can also tow your watercraft to Lake Camanche, Lake Don Pedro, Lake Tulloch, and several other exciting destinations on the trailers we provide.

If the watercraft rental becomes damaged while in my possession, am I responsible?

Mechanical malfunctions are not your responsibility. However, external damage to the equipment or improper use of the watercraft becomes the full responsibility of the renter — even if the renter is not the pilot of the watercraft at the time the damage occurs.

Do you service watercrafts?

Yes, we do! All of our technicians graduated from WyoTech and are highly trained in boat and jet ski maintenance. In fact, we’re one of the very few service shops that repair two-stroke engines and old models.
