Cant begin to express how fantastic these guys are. We came in for a half day boat rental yesterday and it was awesome. Patrick and Joyce make you feel very welcome and are great to work with. Patrick let us know some great places to go on the water and based on his advice it we found an awesome sandbar to hang out at. We also rented a tube for the girls to ride while we were out. That was a blast and worth adding if you have smaller kids. Boat we rented was clean comfortably and well maintained. The lifejackets the girls used for tubing were so well taken care off they looked new. I have been to some place were buckles are broken, or they are torn etc. so this was nice to see. Getting checked in and checking out were a breeze. I wish I could give them more stars, they really made our day even better with how well they took care of us. If you want to spend some time on the lake having a blast these are the people I would recommend.

We had a great time! The boat was in excellent shape and Pat and Joyce made everything easy. We rented the 2-person tube as well and the kids had a blast. I highly recommend renting from Pelican Bay Marina! We will definitely rent from here again!

Folks! This is a great experience from start to finish! We rented two boats for my family gathering of 20. Pat and Joyce are THE nicest people and made us feel welcome and comfortable from the very start. When I returned and informed them that I had an issue with one of the towlines, they were so gracious and made me feel forgiven for making a mistake. The boats were great, clean and well taken care of. We had a wonderful family fun time! We will do it again for sure!!

This was our first time on a Pontoon Boat and it was absolutely amazing! Pat and Joyce did a wonderful job in explaining how the process works and making us feel comfortable. The customer service was first class and the boat was user friendly, easy to navigate and extremely comfortable. We will definitely be back to enjoy the experience again!

We had a great time and will definitely rent from Pat and Joyce again. They were extra helpful considering it was our first time renting on the chain. It was reassuring to see them doing extras like offering hand sanitizer and disinfecting life jackets as soon as we returned them. The boat was very comfortable and perfect for us. Highly recommend!

We rented two boats between 3 families, both were clean and mechanically in great shape. Joyce was great and very helpful during booking (we had some minor changes), it was easy and very straightforward. Pat and Joyce were super helpful the day of. Getting us and all the kids on the water quickly and then helping us upon return. Great little marina on a really nice part of the Chain of Lakes. Within minutes of leaving the dock you can be at a really nice sandy beach area for kids to swim and wade in shallow water. All three families loved it and we are looking to go back again this summer! Really well run family business.

Joyce and Pat greeted us as we drove up, directed us to park in a spot directly across from our rental, and walked us thru the orientation. Boat was clean and ready to go, we had it for 8 hours and it ran perfectly all day long.Will definitely come back again!

We had arrived a few minutes early for our 4 hr rental and the owners were very gracious and informative! They made sure to show us all the comfort and safety features that come along with the boat! It was a very relaxing and fun experience that I can't wait to do again! I would recommend pelican bay marina to everyone and anyone interested in spending time out on the water!!! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

Absolutely awesome. We will definitely be back. The boat was incredibly clean, well kept, new, comfortable and spacious. We had an amazing day On the lake, even with 5 kids under 5 (they have everything you need to make sure you are safe). The owners are right there to make sure you understand everything with the boat and are truly invested to make sure you have everything you enjoy your trip. The customer service Pat and his wife gave us is incredibly rare these days. Thanks for a great day on the water!!!!

My wife and I had a great 1/2 day rental - the boat was beautifully taken care of and incredibly clean. Pat and Joyce were a pleasure to interact with. I highly recommend renting from them if you're looking for a quality boat rental on the chain of lakes.

A very nice couple own this company, and they have a beautiful fleet of boats that are well cared for and in great condition. They were clear with instructions about rules and how to operate the boat, and they were also super helpful with recommendations. We will definitely rent from them again!

We had a fantastic time and would definitely come back. The boat was beautiful and in excellent condition. Very clean. The owners were super efficient and extremely knowledgeable. We rented a tube for the kids and they had a blast. All in all it was awesome and we wouldn’t plan on renting from anywhere else now.

We had a great time on the lake thanks to Pat and Joyce! The entire experience was great and they were very helpful with our large group and all of our kids. I highly recommend them and they even gave us a 10% military discount which was much appreciated and also had the option to pre pay for gas so we could use the entire time slot for fun. We will definitely be coming back anytime we have the itch to go out on the lake again and have a great time. Thanks guys!

Owners were wonderful. Boat was great. We rented the boat for the whole day and 1/2 way through the day a storm moved in. The owners were on my phone checking on us several times throughout our treck back and were on the boat dock in the storm when we got back to help us off the boat and reimbursed us some of the money we paid for the rental. Cannot say enough nice things about them. Will definitely rent from them again.

I am so glad that I decided to go with Pat and Joyce for my 30th birthday celebration! They deserve all the great reviews that they receive and lived up to all the expectations that I had. The pontoon was clean, safe, and fit all of us comfortably. Looking forward to using them again in the future!

We had a fantastic day using using Chain O'Lakes Boat Rentals! The owners spent time explaining everything about the boat and offering us personalized recommendations on places to go. The boat was clean and everything worked great. The bathrooms at the marina are the nicest and cleanest I've seen on the Chain O'Lakes. We will defiantly be renting from them again next summer.

Amazing place for a pontoon rental. Cheapest we found in that area. We had a last minute change to this place as another place clos d even though we booked already with them. This place took us with a week notice and it was one of my best boating experiences ever. The owners are very kind and easy going people. You will love it. Treat the boat as if it’s your own and you won’t have any problems. Don’t think about booking with this place. JUST DO IT! You won’t regret it!!

Pat and Joyce were very accommodating when we tried to rent a boat for a particular Sunday, even though they were booked up several weeks in advance. Pat kept us informed regarding a possible opening; as soon as it was confirmed, he called us. When we got to the marina, our boat was clean and ready to go. Pat took the time to explain everything and provide information on points of interest on the lakes. We'll be back!

My family and friends had a wonderful experience using Chain O'Lakes Boat Rentals! Pat (the owner) was exceptionally friendly and accommodating and the boat they offered us was super nice and well kept. We had a few adults and a few small toddlers with us and they had a fantastic time on the water. We'll be doing this again every year and will only go back to Pat! Really reasonable prices and excellent boats.

The owners are awesome, attentive, helpful and sweet! The grounds are clean and inviting as well as the the showers and restrooms! My family felt welcome from minute one! And my grandchildren weren’t overlooked they chatted with them asking if they needed anything and answered any of their questions! The pontoons where clean and ran excellent! We had a great two days on the lake and will continue to bring my family back summer after summer!

Had a wonderful day out on the water celebrating our daughter's 13th birthday along with 5 of her friends on a pontoon we rented. Pat and Joyce are friendly, helpful and provide great service. The boat rental process was easy and convenient from start to finish, and the girls loved the tube they had for us to add to the rental. We would definitely rent from here again!

This place is great! I checked around for the best pricing for boat rentals on the chain and this place had the best value. The boat was clean and ready when we arrived. Beautiful boat in excellent condition. Pat was so friendly and helpful with getting the kids fitted for life jackets and showing us how to operate the boat. We decided to rent a tube and were so happy we did. So much fun and again in excellent condition. We had a great day on the water even though it rained hard on us the last half hour of our rental as we were gassing up and heading back. Again, Pat met us out on the pier to help us dock and get our stuff off the boat. I was very impressed with the customer service and the boat itself. I can’t say enough good things about Pelican Bay Chain O’Lakes Boat Rentals. If you’re looking for a rental on the chain, you can stop looking. This is 100% an awesome choice. Go have fun!

Rented a pontoon boat here and had a great time. Owners are very friendly and helpful, and had the boat ready to go by the time we arrived. Marina is well-kept with clean bathrooms to use if you need to shower after a day on the lake!

My friends and I had a great time out on the lake and made possible by renting from here. It was easy to get to and easy to drive the boat. A perfect activity for a group of friends for a Sunday afternoon. We were able to get to a few other areas of the chain of lakes and found a good sandbar for swimming. We definitely plan on coming back and will refer friends and family.

WOW! No hassle, friendly, guy-next-door type of service. Take your neighbor's boat out for a fair price with no worries as long as you treat it as your own. Our 4 hour rental was glorious and had zero issues with the boat or the management.

Spent an enjoyable day with the family on the Chain Of Lakes.Renting a pontoon is like renting a floating living room, and the boats here are decked out including a nice stereo system and they have all the safety equipment. The prices were very reasonable. We did a little checking around and found this place to be the cheapest. We hit a few places including Blarney's Island - what an experience!!! The folks working here are very nice and take the time to make sure all your questions are answered.I'd recommend Chain O'Lakes Boat Rentals to friends looking for a casual day trip or a party for the entire weekend.Good times and I'm sure we will be back!!
