We rented a jet ski AND a boat and have to compliment Jim Oselka on his flexibility with our reservations since we showed up late both days! They have all kinds of water sport equipment and paraphernalia. And the training videos are very thorough. Would have appreciated a little "live" review of the boat operations as well. And although our... More

To the crew at Oselka--- thanks again for helping us out with a jet ski rental this Saturday (July 19th) in New Buffalo. Jim was very helpful --and thorough-- in helping answer our questions and they were extremely flexible with our reservation time...probably not an easy thing to do during peak season. The communication was excellent. We jet-skied north of... More

Although he does not sell the temporary insurance coverages, he indicated that my homeowners coverage would probably cover a claim. I check with my carrier and they do not provide LIability coverage and only a small amount of property coverage for samll boats - not the type he rents. Be cautious and check with your insurance carrier before renting from... More

My husband and I each rented Jet Skis from Oselka Marina in June 2012. The staff was very friendly and informative. We had to watch a short video for safety before we could rent the machines, but it was quick enough. Nice equipment and plenty of sizes available for life jackets. Online booking was great too!

I reserved a jet ski online for a recent visit to New Buffalo. Jim was helpful to answer my questions via email and the booking was simple. The day of there was rain coming so we showed up a few hours early to see if we could move our reservation. This was no problem and we were out on the... More

Just tried to rent jet-skis from Oselka Marina and we couldn't have been treated worse than we just were. After speaking with Jim, we were told that we have a reservation for 1 jet-ski when it should have been 2. That's not the worst thing in the world except when we told him that we had a confirmation Voicemail (which... More

As proprietor of the business, I do fee badly that you had a bad experience. I apologize for the confusion between one or two jet skis. I have also phoned the customer and apologized and offered a discount if they would like to come back on a future date. Thank you. Jim Oselka More

I rented a boat from Oselka Marina during our last visit to Lakeside, Michigan. I can't say enough about the customer service that was offered by Jim and the amount of fun we had on the boat. We initially wanted to rent the boat for a full day but the weather/wind wasn’t cooperating. We ended up renting for 4 hours... More
