Pontoon Boat Rentals In Michigan

Pontoon Boat Rentals In Michigan

Hello all, today I’m going to write about the top places that offer you pontoon boat rentals in Michigan, USA. Unlike older days you don’t need to call or visit companies now to rent a pontoon boat. In 2024 every business now has its website. If you don’t have one you can consider building a website for your business from Rarelayouts. So people can visit your website and check your services/products.

I don’t have any affiliate with pontoon rentals companies below. I’m just writing this article with my personal experiences, my friends, and the reviews from the internet. Actually, I selected 18 rental places first but I removed some places because of their bad feedback and they didn’t answer my questions properly while I talked to them over the phone. 

Why do you need to rent out a pontoon boat?

Well, owning a pontoon boat may be not okay with most people. Because of a pontoon boat’s cost, it may be a bit harder for everyone to own their pontoon boat. Or maybe you don’t have enough space to keep your pontoon boat, maybe you can afford a pontoon boat but you don’t have/want to spend money to maintain that. 

With these facts, you can consider renting a pontoon boat. Today most renting companies offer mini pontoon boats under 350$ per 24 hours. For me, that is a decent price. Because I think it’s ok to spend 350$ per day and get a chance for your busy life.

So let’s take a look what are the top websites for pontoon boat rentals in Michigan

GRAND HEAVEN BOAT RENTALS

NORTHAIRE BOAT RENTALS

Northaire Resort & Pontoon Rentals was established by Fred And Sophia Dewitt in 1948. It’s located on the south shores of Clam Lake/Torch Lake in Antrim County, Michigan, USA. I think you guys may be aware that Torch Lake got third place in the National Geographic Most Beautiful Lakes in the World documentary. 

Northaire Boat Rentals also has a lodging facility. They have 5 cabins called The Main House, The Full Moon, The Clam Shell, The Lil’ Beaver, and The Knoty Pine. Not only that, they have something called Sunset Cruise which provides a licensed captain that will help you to sit back in your pontoon and enjoy the beautiful waters of Torch Lake and the most amazing sunsets in your life with your loved one! Imagine watching the most beautiful sunset in a pontoon boat with your girlfriend or boyfriend while drinking your favorite wine. Well, you can get that experience from here for just 150$. 

While I’m writing this article Northaire has 244 Google reviews and surprisingly 221 positive reviews on Tripadvisor also. 

LEELANAU PONTOON RENTALS

Leelanau pontoon boat has 74 Google Reviews and only 5 feedbacks on Tripadvisor. So that is why I put this at the end of the list. But so far all the reviews are so good. 

DOCKSIDE BOAT RENTAL

Another great place to rent a pontoon boat is Torch Lake. They provide multi-day rental services also. So you can rent a pontoon boat for a couple of days. This is good if you need a big change from your boring life. Also, they have jet skis. There are no prices mentioned on their website, but they have a large number of pontoon boat collections. 

Dockside Boat Rrental has a massive number of reviews on Google reviews. Right on today they have 306 positive reviews on Google and 217 reviews on TripAdvisor. That is a good point to choose this as one of the rental places in Michigan. 

UP NORTH PONTOON RENTALS

My last pick is Up North Pontoon Rentals. The reason for picking up this is because they have some nice pontoons for larger groups. Also, they offer some decent tritoons even under 475$. Some of these tritoons and pontoons have high-powered motors, and better stability that will benefit you to have a nice party in the middle of a lake. 

They don’t have any reviews yet currently on Tripadvisor but they do have  134 reviews on Google Reviews. If you want to organize a party on a pontoon or want to enjoy with a larger audience or maybe shoot a video but you don’t have money to spend for a pontoon boat, well don’t worry Up North has a nice collection of larger pontoons boats in Michigan, USA.

Final Thoughts 

If you don’t have a lot of money to buy your own pontoon boat but need to enjoy it in water with a pontoon boat in Michigan then renting a pontoon boat is good for you. It’s also good for people who don’t have enough space in their homes to keep a pontoon boat. Here I mentioned a few places in Michigan, USA that provide decent pontoon renting services. I will update this article if I find out more places or companies in the future. Until then see you again!
