I have always had great experiences at On the Narrows Marina. I don't know what these people are talking about, the owners have always went out of their way to assist us every year that we have rented from them. The staff is young but its a first job for them always very nice and fun to be around. I... More

Watch out for this marina. They will cancel you at the last minute if they have an up sell opportunity for a larger group. Boats are constantly breaking down. Avoid them if possible.

I have rented the 14.5 foot sailboat on three occasions, most recently this past month. It is a terrific location for a day sail. We went out on a Saturday and it was not too crowded. The boat is comfortable and easy to use. The price was reasonable ($60 for 2 hrs). The staff were very helpful and friendly.

We rented our jet skis from the Narrows Marina. Price was comparable to other places that we have rented but the jet skis at The Narrows were much better. Newer and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and courteous. They even have dogs for you to pet if you are a dog lover and you need a "dog fix" while... More

We rented a Hurricane Deck Boat for the week of August 9 through 16. We contacted the company well in advance and they handled all of our questions (and we had a lot) and the details very well in a very friendly fashion. The boat was great!! We fished some days and did tubing and skiing on others. I look... More

We rented a powerful ski boat. Very friendly people. Very good instruction. Cooperative with specific needs. Boat in perfect condition. Not inexpensive but worth every dollar. Highly recommended

I am an experienced boater and know the ins & outs of boats / boating. I was very pleased with their service and equipment. My family had a great time and the pricing was reasonable. Make sure you reserve ahead of time to get the boat you want. Thanks
