No boat? No problem. We can help you beat this heatwave – stay cool on the water with a Jones Boys boat rental!

Summer 2021 came in with a vengeance — record-breaking heat – driving us all off dry land onto our local lakes and rivers in search of a cool, wet, refreshing reprieve.

Whether it’s to get out for chills and thrills on a Waverunner, waterskiing with friends and family, land that big catch, or simply to rest and relax away from the heat of the beach and town, an easy and convenient boat rental is the way to go!

Experience the wonders of Kootenay Lake


Soak up the sun as you escape the heat – and the summer crowds! – on pristine and breathtaking Kootenay Lake.

With the Purcell Mountain range to the east and the Selkirks to the west, there’s over 140 km of lake to experience. You’re sure to find a corner of the lake that’s all your own to explore and enjoy.

And one of the easiest and coolest ways to do it is by boat. Unwind and take in the spectacular natural vistas and shorelines, tranquil coves, and picturesque lakeside towns. Jones Boys Boats offers a great selection of watercraft to help you discover the beauty and wonder of Kootenay Lake.

What you need to know when you rent a boat

While renting a boat is super easy and convenient, there are still a few things to consider as you make your boat rental plans:

  • A BOATING LICENSE IS REQUIRED to operate a boat or PWC. Not to worry, you can easily get a license ONLINE.
  • There are specific pickup times, and a deposit is required when you reserve your watercraft.
  • There is an age requirement. Anyone under the age of 21 must have a valid Pleasure Craft Operators Card. For renters over the age of 21, you must complete a temporary Boat Renter Checklist for the rental. You’re not required to have a valid Pleasure Craft Operators Card.

No matter the fun you’re looking for, we’ve got the boat for you: pontoon boats, deck boats, Waverunners, or even a towable water toy.
