We maintain the Upstate's largest rental fleet of late model pontoons and ski boats (not to mention, kayaks & SUP's) at Lake Jocassee's only outfitter and marine center. Unique to our rental fleet are pontoons and ski boats with higher horsepower engines to enjoy while tubing, skiing or just shooting around the lake! We're your "fun" choice!

This bait shop has everything you need (well almost everything). Atmosphere is great & prices reasonable. Variety of bait & they don’t gouge you. Good selection of maps of the lake area. You can schedule your charter boat tour here or rent a kayak

We rented a pontoon from JOC and enjoyed our day. The staff are friendly and if you forgot something than they probably have it in the center. Prices are also reasonable, too. We were out from 8:30 until 4:30 without any problems from the boat....More

Capacity 10 on the Pontoon. $300 for 4 hours, $400 for 8 hours. We had just checked into the pricing less than 2 weeks ago. Check their web site or call for more potential options.
