Beginner Boaters- Now's The Time to Test The Water!

Boating in the fall can be the perfect time for a novice boater to get some hours under his or her belt. The water is calm, the weather is comfortable and there are fewer people zipping around; a recipe for boating success! If you want to experience recreational boating but feel you need some practice behind the wheel, now is a great time and, renting a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks is an easy and affordable way to get your feet wet (literally!). From PWCs and ski boats to Tritoons, BomBay Boat Rentals has all the equipment and rental options to build a great day on the water! We offer some advice to our lake lovers that are still getting comfortable on the water.

Once you’ve decided to rent, where do you start?

BomBay Boat Rental Company has three convenient locations to welcome you and give you all the options you desire to meet your boating needs. Once you’ve chosen the best location you will find that we offer the best fleet of boats around! Depending on the size and desire of your party, we have ski boats for the fast fun seekers, spacious Tritoons for serious relaxation and comfort, and waverunners for the adventurous!

Now that you’ve chosen your boat, what do you need?

Autumn is upon us and while we’re fortunate that warm afternoons are typical of the Midwest fall season, it’s important to keep an eye on the weather before and during your trip so you’re not caught by surprise. You’ll want to dress appropriately. Fall days can bring significant changes in temperature and conditions. It’s better to have layers on so you can adapt easily when the weather gets warmer or cooler. You won’t want to forget a map! If you’re planning on spending the day navigating the large Lake of the Ozarks, and you're not familiar with the area, you’ll want to find out about possible shallow areas or obscurities. Let someone know where you’ll be and when you expect to be back- darkness comes earlier this time of year and you won't want to get caught out at night.

You’re on the water, what do you do now?

Wear a life jacket if you are an inexperienced boater, and children should always wear a PFD. It’s even more important when the weather is cooler. During autumn, the days might be warm, but cold nights mean the water can be chilly. Next, have fun! The Lake of the Ozarks has a variety of waterfront restaurants that are open in the fall and you will find other boaters out enjoying the same beautiful Ozark weather you are.

Autumn’s arrival doesn’t mean the boating season has come to an end and it can be an excellent time for beginner boaters to gain experience and knowledge about boating. BomBay Boat Rentals is committed to great customer service and would be happy to assist you with your rental. Our fall boat rentals are an exceptional value and impeccably well maintained. You can always count on a dependable rental from Bombay Boat Rentals!
