“Two hours of fun for the whole family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

My wife, her parents, my five year old son and I rented a Bowrider for two hours and toured Lake Placid. We had a blast. The boat was easy to operate, great for cruising and enjoying the views of the mountains and the camps and estates that dot the shoreline. The boat rode was very stable and exhibited plenty of power when I finally succumbed to the urging of my usually timid five year old: "Daddy go faster!"
The staff were very friendly and accommodating and made us feel comfortable and welcome. We had a great time and found that our two hour time slot was just right amount of time to suit our needs.

“Great time boating on Lake Placid”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Rented a bow boat from Placid Boat Rentals for a Saturday afternoon and had a fantastic time! Steve, the owner and Tyler helped set us up with the boat, a tube and a wakeboard for our day on the lake, showing us where to go and overall taking time to make our trip so much fun. We loved tubing on the lake and we would definitely go back!

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

We rented a so boat along with equipment for two hours. The staff (Steve, Tyler Shelby, and Shawn) were friendly and very helpful. Tyler took plenty of time to explain the boat controls. All told, we couldn't have asked for a better boating experience.

“Excellent service, quality rentals, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014

Definitely the place to rent water craft in the Lake Placid area. Rented kayaks and paddle boards the first day and went back a few days later to rent a power boat for tubing and wakeboarding. Quality of the rentals was top notch. And staff went above and beyond to helo ensure that we had a great time on the Lakes. My sister broke her finger while on the boat (no fault of Lake Placid Rental), and Steve called the next day to see how she was doing and offered the boat that day free of charge! It is rare to find such great experiences like this. So a big thanks to Placid boat rentals for helping to make our trip such a memorable one. Lake was calm and had a wonderful time on the wakeboard and tubes. Will definitely rent again from them on our return to Lake Placid.
