Super fun day out on the 2017 jet boat, that looked brand new. We also rented a tube for extra $25. Recommend you arrive early to sign paperwork. Give yourself time. There are bathrooms at the marketplace next door, and a restaurant. Gary was very patient and clear with showing us how to operate the boat. It was pretty straight forward. It got a little cloudy/cold, so we came in early. We called and Gary met us at the refueling dock. Bring a USB cable for the sound system. We couldn’t get Bluetooth connection to work. (Probably our fault!). They have lots of life jackets. Highly recommend!

When God created Lake Pend o'Reille in Sandpoint, Idaho, he was having one of his best days. Mother Nature seems to have played favorites with the region. Despite the fact that our family has traveled the globe (89 counties and all seven continents) and live in Northern Idaho, one of our favorite family activities is to rent a pontoon boat on Lake Pend o'Reille and leisurely cruise the lake viewing the homes, catching rays and/or fish, drinking cool beverages and finding hot sun. Music blaring, or nothing but occasional conversation; pulling a tube or knee board at top speed, of just drifing. The memories of a lifetime are started on the pontoon boat, and yes, we do use red Solo cups. We've rented boats from all the marinas and rental shops in Sandpoint, Hope and Dover and none are even close to being as unbelievably good, no, GREAT as Sandpoint Water Sports. Why didn't we find them sooner since we only live 45-miles away and rent often! First of all, the equipment. SWS has top of the line equipment that is spotless. You won't find dog hair embeded in the old carpet, torn upolstery, stains, spider webs, or left behind trash under the life jackets (things we've seen on previous rentals). Our pontoon boat literally had the "new boat" smell. Unlike other marinas/facilities where you have to park far away or slep coolers and gear down stairs, at SWS you can park close to the boats and use the carts they provide to go to cruise downhill on a ramp to the docks. The folks at SWS are super fiendly, helpful, and the mandatory orientation was clever, clear and concise. Besides a pleasant, speedy checkin, what we really appreciated was their attitude. Although the boat was contractually due back at 6 pm, Gary Champman, the owner said, "If you're going to be late, don't worry, just call us at this number. Or if you come back early, we'll be watching for you and meet you on the dock." Gary gave us tips on where to go, what to avoid (lake was still very low) and showed off the boats neat features like BlueTooth connectivity for musis. While we'd declined renting a float to pull, he gave us a tow rope to borrow. Our portable compressor didn't work on the lake, but lucky us, SWS had a brand new one under the console. Viola, the giant Pug floatie was in the lake and my Daughter, Granddaughter and our GrandPugs were on the lake with smiles so wide they could have eaten bananas sideways! When we arrived back at the dock, not only was Gary and his son smiling, they helped us unload and pack up the cart they'd brought down to greet us. I waited around to pay for the gas we used (like I'd had to do at all the other locations we rented from), but he smiled and waved my off saying, "Your credit card is on file. We'll use it to fill it up and text you the amount." Before we gone five miles from Dover Bay, our Granddaughter, Reagan, was asleep and "bing," here came the $$ amount of the gas with a nice message. We're all still smiling today. We couldn't possibley give this facility and the owners a higher rating. .

On a recent family vacation to Idaho we rented a pontoon boat for the day from Sandpoint Watersports. They even delivered it to our dock! We went with the Lowe Tri toon because of our larger group. Had a great time cruising the lake and pulling the kids on the tube. The owners are really nice and accommodating. Fantastic experience..

Gary was super thorough explaining the boat to us. It was a brand new boat! Spoiled us! Gave us tips on places to take the boat for fun trips on the lake when we weren't tubing or boarding. Reasonably priced rentals so we could keep the boat on the dock and home we rented on the lake. Super fun!

We are from North Dakota and we were in Coeur d'Alene to visit our son and his family. We all went to Sandpoint and rented a pontoon from Sandpoint Watersports on Memorial Day as a spur of the moment activity. The rental was reasonably priced and the pontoon was of superior quality; we had absolutely no trouble with anything on the boat. We were impressed with the proprietor and his wife- they were so accomodating and friendly. It was an excellent experience on an absolutely beautiful area.
