How do Boat and Watercraft Rentals Work out of Alpine?
Our Alpine office is located just 30 miles south of Jackson Hole, Wyoming and provides direct access to the Palisades Reservoir. Our Boat & Watercraft rentals can be delivered to the waterfront ready for your family and friends to enjoy or loaded on a trailer ready to tow to your preferred boating destination. With full and half day options, safety gear, ski/wake board equipment, and plenty of boating accessories we have everything you need to enjoy a day on the water.
What security deposit is required to rent boats and watercraft?
Our boats require a security deposit hold/authorization on your credit card of choice in accordance with your damage waiver option. If you choose the damage waiver for $55 per day to limit your liability to the $1,000 deductible the credit card hold will be $1000.00 until the boat is returned without damage. If you do not choose the optional damage waiver the credit card security deposit hold/authorization will be $3000.00
For personal watercraft (Sea Doo’s) we do not require a pre-authorization. The optional damage waiver to limit your liability on the watercraft is $35/day with a $1000 deductible.
