My family and I are planning on camping on Long Island in July for 2 nights, but we have a few questions. We liked the idea of canoeing to and from it, but are worried that if the weather is bad or the water is too rough, we would not be able to. If we had not made a reservation for a boat rental, we would be afraid that none would be available at the last minute. We also found out that it is much calmer water coming from the east, but we could not find any canoe rentals from there.
If we just bagged the canoe idea and rented a boat, do the rentals work for 24 hour periods or just days. Like if we rented a boat on a Tuesday afternoon, and returned it Thursday morning, would that count as 2 days b/c it is less than 48 hours? Is a one day rental a 24 period or do you have to return it the same day. We tried contacting some, but have not heard back yet.
We found a shuttle, but it is $100 each way so we may want to pay a bit more and just rent a boat.
Any suggestions or ideas to help us would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
