    Oselka's is the BEST!
    Oselka's is the absolute BEST for boat rentals and to make your family vacation in New Buffalo even more memorable! Jim is a true professional, with exceptional knowledge and customer service. He helped us come up with the best plan for our family vacation. We had the most incredible day ... boating, waterskiing and tubing on two boats with the most exceptional captains ... huge shoutout and thank you to Captains Conrad and Ryan! This was one of the highlights of our vacation in New Buffalo! Thank you thank you to Oselka's!

    Moke Cruise Car
    We have rented boats from Oselka Marina in previous years but this summer we changed it up and rented the Moke electric cruise car. It was such a blast! A fun way to drive to beach, get back and forth between New Buffalo and Union Pier, etc...Highly recommend!!

    Beautiful time on the lake
    We rented a 25' boat with captain at Oselka Marina this past week. The boat was very nice. We had a great time with Captain Michael. He was knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and a skilled captain. He anchored the boat so we could swim and enjoy a sand bar. The lake was steadily getting choppier, so we cruised down the river. Great experience for us 4 ladies. I highly recommend and would definitely repeat.

    Great outing!
    Our family of 9 with 3 generations rented a 22' boat and a tube for 2 for tubing on the lake. Everyone at the Marina was helpful, friendly and professional. The boat and equipment was first rate, with no issues. A storm came across the lake , so the Marina called us back in an hour early. I expected we might get a credit for the one hour, but they very generously asked if we would like to continue after the storm passed or come back the next day. We did go back the next day and they had everything ready for us.

    Thank you for a Memorable Sunset Cruise on Memorial Day!!
    My daughter and I and 8 of her friends had a Sunset Cruise over Memorial Day weekend. We were directed to the boat in the marina. The boat was big, very clean, and very fun! Captain Chuck took us out . He was very friendly, and very knowledgeable about the New Buffalo area. He was very flexible, and was able to anchor us for awhile, when some of the girls decided they wanted to jump in and go swimming. He allowed us to go to the front of the boat, and made sure we all felt at home and welcome. It was a very good experience, and we would love to do it again! Everything was very smooth and efficient!

We rented 3 jet skis for our group of 10 for 1 and 1/2 hrs each. Oselka personnel were very efficient and friendly. Helps to have paperwork all completed ahead of time.
We were all given water vests. There is a shaded area with a picnic table to wait if you want to trade out riders/drivers. It took about 5 minutes to exit the harbor area so the hour and a half goes quickly on the lake. Parking was plentiful and easy access.

Jetsiing here was awesome. I have Jetskied a few times next to Navy Pier in Chicago and that was cool, but this experience was much better. There was plenty of space next to a beautiful beach. The communication from Oselka Marina was very helpful and the ability to sign the paperwork and watch the videos ahead of time expedited the experience and made it a much smoother process. All the workers here were friendly and we received very quick communication for a couple questions we had. There is free, but limited on a busy day, parking on the street right outside. One thing to remember is that there is a ten minute wake free drive on the jetski bot in and out of the marina so if you do 1 and 1/2 hours be sure to factor that is. Thank you Oselka Marina for a very fun experience. It was so cool to be able to jetski along the New Buffalo beach that I have spent many days at. I always looked out at the jetskiiers when I was on the beach and said That looks so fun, I am going to do that one day!" Well I did and it was awesome.

Had a family vacation on Lake MI and decided to rent a boat. Was able to quickly and easily book online. Filled out required forms, watched safety videos, etc. in advance of getting to the marina, so we were prepared.
Fitted entire family for life jackets, allowed us to upgrade our tube on the spot without any issues.
Overall, the process was quick, easy and everything ran on time - just a really great experience overall. Thank you for helping to make family memories that will last a lifetime!

We had a great time waterskiing with Captain Chuck on a 21' boat. There were nine of us and 7 water skiiers. He was very friendly and drove the boat well. Made it really fun and esay for all of the skiiers. We started at 9:00 am which I highly recommend because by 11:00 the water was already getting choppier. Boat was clean and comfortable and we all loved being out on the water!

Great experience with the marina. We had a group of 15 and we rented a boat for two days, and jet skis on another day. We did have an issue with one of the boats but the staff resolved it quickly. Very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely be back.

Unfortunately, we did not have great weather for our outing, but I can't blame Oselka Marina for that. They provided good customer service and it was convenient to fill out all of the forms online.

My complaint was with the condition of the boat. It was not clean, the seats were tearing and cracking, the radio didn't work properly and when my son lifted up the door to put some things in the hold it was smelly and dirty with left over trash. I think this boat needs to be retired or cleaned up at a minimum.

We rented a boat on 8/29/21 it was a two hour cruse at sunset. Our Captain Conrad was the BEST. We had such a great time and it was a beautiful night. The whole process was very easy would highly recommend especially with Conrad as the captain.

My friends and I did the yacht cruise with captain Bill. The yacht was in great shape and made for a great experience, and captain Bill was exceptional. Would highly recommend anyone to do this in the future and I look forward to doing it again.
