I booked yacht/boat/jetskis for my brother's bachelor party (we had a large crew of 20) and these guys really took care of us. I called months in advance and got a great deal for the 4th of July weekend, so make sure that you reserve really early to get the best pricing!

Rented the 19' Sea Ray from Oselka. Our family of 4 with two very young kids had a great time. We had great weather. The boat was clean and in great working order. Booked online. Check in was easy and fast. Staff was friendly and knowledgable. Lots of time for pleasure cruising, picnic on the water and a little fishing... More

We rented the yacht this past weekend for a bachelorette party. The boat was beautiful, clean, and equipped with great amenities. Our captain, Capt. Luis, was super nice, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this fun little adventure :)

I chose Oselka Marina to slip my boat over 10 years ago. The floating docs are very convenient to get on and off my size boat. The marina has a fuel dock, a pump out station, and a service department. We like the marina for the floating docks and the friends we have established there; however, it is not a... More

Thank you for providing feedback about our facility. We do strive for excellence and appreciate knowing about any customer concerns, especially from a long-time slip renter. Any harbor with wooden dock boards will occasionally have some that rot. We have identified any such boards and replaced them. Our staff mows the grass at least once per week. We also apply... More

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.
