“Great Time”

Skylite Boat Rentals
Ranked #4 of 16 things to do in Big Water
Attraction details
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I rented a ski boat from Skylite the last week of June to go with my houseboat week. It was a simple process to book it in advance and of course once you pick up the boat there is tons of papers to sign (thank you Lawyers). Althought the boats are not brand new the boat I had this time was in great working condition. This is the second time we have used Skylite and I would not hesitate to rent from them again. The office manager was very professional and organized and made the rental process as easy as she could. Thank You!

I'll start out with our boat got us 3 1/2 awesome days on Lake Powell. They're boats are on the older more "very used" side. Entire staff was very nice. Make sure you ask any and all questions that you might have, as very little information was given to me at the time of reservation. They offer insurance ($50.00 extra per day), but it has a $2500.00 deductible. Would have been nice they mentioned this so I could have made arrangements with my insurance company. They also have a policy that you don't take their boats past marker 52 on the Lake (not a big issue for most, but you do miss the Escalante Arm, which contains several great views). Overall, I think I would rent from them again due to their rates, but I'll check other options.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review especially since you have pointed out a few areas we can improve on. The insurance is on the expensive side since it is an in-house insurance. We have not been offering it very long so we do forget to go over it with the customer when the reservation is made. We will definitely work on that.

As for the mile marker 52 policy, our boats can be taken past 52 but if it were to break down for an reason the customer would be responsible for the towing to get it back to 52 regardless of fault. We would then cover the towing after that. We have this policy because the concessionaire charges us $250 an hour for towing. Towing a boat back from past mile marker 52 gets expensive really quick. Most of our customers don't go past Rainbow Bridge anyway because it takes so long to get up to that area.

We are glad you enjoyed your 3 1/2 days out on Lake Powell and we thank you for your input!

We reserved the 24' Cuddy for two days and it was awesome. The staff are excellent and very helpful. We were able to reserve the boat last minute on our way over from New Mexico, and the process of getting and the paperwork was quick and easy. My buddies and I will DEFINITELY rent from them again on our next trip to Lake Powell!

We reserved two PWC's for use on a Wednesday - early that morning I called because two members of our party were out of commission medically for that day they kindly moved our reservation to Friday. It turned out one member was very ill and needed to get the St. George for further medical attention. We were able to use the PWC's on Thursday and the service was great! Will definitely rent from them again!
