What people are saying
Beware
Jul 2020
In July, we rented a boat from Holderness a Harbor. We have a boat with a slightly larger motor but our truck was in the shop. My husband, who has his N.H. boating license, was surprised by how little power the motor had, and wondered if it had an issue, but as my son was visiting, and we were just out for a nice day on the lake, we didn’t care if we just putted along. Squad Lake was very low that day and we nicked an unmarked rock. It didn’t affect how the boat ran, but a propellor blade did get nicked. When we brought the boat back later, we showed the man who met us, and he reacted strongly. “You, sit there!” He commanded us. We had no intention of leaving, and his reaction was totally unnecessary and embarrassing. After the motor had been looked at, we were told that the repair would be $100 for a new blade, and they would call if it was going to be more, which they never did. Imagine my surprise when my credit card bill cake and they had charged almost $800! I was shocked! They claim that we bent the hardened steel shaft of the motor, but when we spoke to a Mercury dealer in another town, he said that there was no way that we could have with the minimal damage that the blade had. He also said that a bent shaft could cause low power, and we are guessing that the shaft was already bent. The icing on the cake that day was when the man who had rudely ordered us around smiled as we walked out and said, “Welcome yo NH”. We are from NH and not far from there, but wondered if we looked like sitting ducks.

Delightful time on the water.

There is a variety of boats to rent. We opted for a two man kayak. The checking in process was efficient and friendly. The cost is modest for the kayak rental at $20 per hour!

We have used the boat shuttle services from Aquam for several years now and they have always been excellent to work with. "Smithy" is the nicest and most helpful person to work with.

Excellent Day on the Lake
Jul 2019 • Family
The staff was great. They took their time reviewing the details of our rented pontoon boat. I have a license, but it was nice to have a refresher.

The price was reasonable, which included Ice, tube, & tow line. We picked her up at 10am, and cruised the lake until 4ish.

The lake water was refreshing & clean. My son loved jumping off a rock in Rattlesnake Cove.

We rented a boat for different days. The rental process was easy. The staff made me feel comfortable with the rental and provided all the tools we needed for a fun and safe day.

I would absolutely rent from them again.

Kayak Rental

Price was reasonable. Kayaks were very stable and easy to paddle.
Attendants were helpful on returning, but we took care of heading out.
