    Cruise, swim, party and enjoy on a 2020 Tritoon on Lake Norman!

    Everything was wonderful! The weather was hot and sunny, so the dips in the water felt so good. I appreciated having Jim to captain the boat. He was full of fun facts about the lake, it was obvious how much he loves the area. Easy to just relax and let someone else worry about where we were an how to get back! It is a BIG lake. We will be back to book with Heath and Jim again.

Look forward to renting from you again soon!

    Lake Norman Jet Ski Fun in the sun!! 2021 Sea Doo!!!!!

    After coming to Lake Norman for several years this was the best rental experience I’ve ever had. Craig was very cordial and his communication was great. He was very thorough and happy to answer any questions we had. The jet ski I rented was in tip top shape looking practically brand new. It performed flawlessly. If you’re looking to rent a machine for the lake I would highly recommend Craig. You won’t find any better rental - super value, communication, thorough, and an AWESOME TIME! Thank you
