We rented one of their pontoon boats for 4 hours and toured around Lk. Charlevoix, anchoring in different areas to swim, eating lunch on the boat, and just having a wonderful time together as a family. The boat was newer, clean, and we would not hesitate to rent from them again!

We took the black pontoon out for a half day on the lake. We called in to book and were signed up for the next day within 5 minutes. The launch process and pre-boating intro was very helpful and through. The boat itself was awesome, excellent condition and the best part was a very powerful motor to cruise easily through... More

Awesome time spent on a pontoon boat with tube for tubing on a hot summer day. Lake Charlovoix is beautiful and it's amazing to see all the gorgeous homes. Staff at boyne water sports was fantastic with quick instructions and prompt assistance docking. Probably our best activity on vacation!

Excellent service and superbly maintained equipment! I called a few weeks in advance and reserved the Diamond Ice tritoon boat, a jet ski, 2 standup paddle boards and all the accessories (water skis, tube, wake board). I talked to Josh and he called the day before arrival to confirm. They delivered everything on time to our house on Lake Charlevoix... More

We rented a tritoon, raft & 2 Stand Up Paddle Boards from Boyne Watersports & the experience could not have been any easier and the team working together were a pleasure. At the end of the week, I was having difficulty returning the SUP boards & the team very nicely offered to come by and pick them up for me.... More

Rented a pontoon boat for 4 hours to travel around Lake Charleviox. Added a 2 person tube rental to pull on back of pontoon boat. The boat itself was amazing, only a few months old and was super comfortable. Staff did an excellent job running me through the need to know items to drive the boat. The boat had a... More

This was my first time to parasail and the team at Boyne Parasailing was terrific! Awesome to take off from the back of the boat -- and the "toe dip" was just that... We were gently lowered right above the water before being brought back to the back of the boat for landing. Josh and Captain Mike were friendly and... More

After an initial mix up with our reservation Josh and his team did everything to make it right. I can appreciate a business that stands behind their word.
