We rented 3 jet skis on a beautiful Friday morning. The staff at the Marina was very friendly and helpful, and the jet skis were in excellent condition. My guys had a blast.

Oselka's Marina is a New Buffalo institution. However, they have a monopoly of sorts on the snug harbor. Check your bill and consider docking in Michigan City at B&E.

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!

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.

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
