Frequently Asked Questions

Tubes/Rafts/Water Sports

12 years old. Youths 13 & 14 years old must have a motorboat operator’s certificate if an adult is not on board the Jet Ski. 12 year olds must be accompanied by an adult (18 years or older).

What if I damage a drift boat or fishing boat?

You will be charged for parts and labor to repair the damage and any lost rental income. If insurance was purchased, then your liability will be limited to the deductible chosen for the parts and labor. You will still have to pay for any lost rental income.

What if I puncture a tube or raft?

There is a $10 fee per hole to patch a tube and $20 fee per hole to patch a river raft. If puncture is within 1” of a seam or across a seam, the renter is responsible for replacement of the tube or raft at full replacement cost.

ATV/UTVing

What do we need to bring/wear to go ATV / UTV riding?

This depends on the season you are in.
Winter: You’ll want to dress for playing in the snow all day. We suggest a good pair of polypropylene style long underwear (top, bottom–and women will appreciate a good sports bra); a good pair of ski socks (polypropylene or wool, no cotton); comfortable middle layers over long underwear suits such as sweaters, sweatshirts, and sweatpants; polar fleece; waterproof and windproof outer layers (ski or snow pants and jacket); gloves. Helmets are required (and provided free of charge for all riders).

Summer: You’ll want to dress in long pants and a comfortable shirt. You should bring along with you a rain suit, extra socks and closed toe shoes. Bear spray (available for rent or purchase) is always a good idea.

Spring/Fall: Montana’s weather changes fast. Always be prepared for cold with rain or snow as a possibility. Bear spray (available for rent or purchase) is always a good idea.

A few additional suggestions: Earrings can be uncomfortable under helmets, so you will want to keep that in mind. Sunglasses or goggles (available for rent or purchase) are a must. A camera (available for rent) is also a must-have to capture the spectacular beauty of Montana’s high country. Always remember to bring fluids and food.

What is included with an ATV / UTV rental?

Helmets and a Safety Duffel are included with every rental. We also will walk through each machine with each renter. Explaining the machine itself, all the parts and what to pay attention for.
