Beautiful day on the water getting to rent our own boat for two hours and drive around the lake seeing the amazing views.

The crew on the dock were so nice and easy going. Even offered to buy us a coffee because of the longer wait at the filling station. But their was no bother to us to be able to sit on the boat in the sunshine carefree.

We hired a boat for 2 hours for €100. This includes the fuel. You can hire the boat for 2 hours at €70 and pay for the fuel when you get back.... however, you have to be back 15 mins early to fuel up and generally the fuel will cost about €30. 2 hours is enough time to get from Pescheria to Lazise and then across to the Sirmione and back to Pescheria without going full throttle. The boat is very easy to pilot. I never piloted and motor boat before and had no trouble. It's just forward and reverse throttle and steer. Bring your driving licence with you you as they need ID. We enjoyed is so much, we went back the next day and took a boat out again. This time for 2.5 hours. However, be careful of windy days. The waves can be quite big out on the lake and you will get wet. We made our way across to Lazise as quickly as we could which was more sheltered and the waved died down. It was a lot more enjoyable then. The staff are very friendly and speak perfect English. They explain everything before they let you go out, how to use the boat, where not to go etc. They will also ask you to take a photo of the propeller before you go out as they are expensive if damaged. Driving a power boat on Lake Garda for €100. It's so so worth it. There were 7 of us on board, so it's fairly big.

By far the best way to see the lake. We hired the boat from 10am to 6pm (although you can have it from 9am however we luckily got a cancellation booking otherwise would have had it from 9am). We went from Peschiera to Torri del Benaco, stopping off at Garda and then straight back.

Peschiera to Garda is approximately 30-40 minutes and Garda to Torri del Benaco is about 10-15 minutes, from here back to Peschiera about 40-45 minutes, as the crow flys.

Would highly recommend the 8hour boat hire, for those without a boat licence and who are novices (like us), mooring takes some doing, so give yourself plenty of time.

The boats were very clean and in excellent condition, the staff were friendly and helpful.

With Peschiera boat tours you only pay for the fuel you use. There is a fuel station next door to the boat hire and at the end of your hire you return your boat to Peschiera boat hire and one of the staff hop in with you and you go to the fuel station together, very handy as it gets busy and tricky to manoeuvre. Our trip only costs us €40 in fuel. The staff advised us that 1 tank of fuel could sustain 5 hours at fuel throttle.

We were lucky and managed to get a cancellation booking, however I would recommend booking in advance especially at this tome of year. Peschiera boat rental don’t take deposits over the phone to secure bookings so in the height of summer although they get booked up some people do cancel or simply no show up, common but unreliable. If you’re late your booking gets passed to whoever is waiting.

My only reservation is that no one went through how to moor the boat or tie the knots, there is an art to it, it can be stressful trying to figure that part out, plus just to add to the anxiety when you moor up it is likely to be right opposite a busy restaurant however once you’ve done it once it’s easier to figure out if or when you move on to the next place. FYI some docks charge a parking fee, normally €5-€8.

There is a €150 ‘cash only’ deposit taken on the day and you need one form of ID, passport of driving licence, which they keep until you return the boat and pay the bill, also there is a zero alcohol tolerance for all boat drivers.

Great family fun for a fantastic price.
Originally planned to take a ferry across Lake Garda but idea changed when we saw Peschiera Boat Rent and so glad we did.
Was an amazing experience and one we will remember. Highly recommend you taking one of their boats out on to the lake.
Prices are fair and people working there are excellent, taking the time to explain (without overdoing it) everything on the boat and safely advice which reassured us.
Go there, book it and enjoy ‍♂️‍♂️‍♂️
