**Boat Rental Terms & Conditions**
- In order to operate a motorboat of 10 horsepower or greater, Florida law requires anyone who was born on or after Jan. 1, 1988,
to successfully complete an approved boater safety course and obtain a Boating Safety Education Identification Card issued by the Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission.
a. A person licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard to serve as master of a vessel.
b. A nonresident who has in his or her possession proof that he or she has completed a
NASBLA - approved boater safety course or equivalency examination from another state.
Approved courses can be found at http://myfwc.com/boating/safety-education/courses/
Florida regulations state “The facility must provide pre-rental or pre-ride instruction
on the safe operation of the vessel with a motor of 10 horsepower or more.”
This instruction must include, at a minimum, operational characteristics of the vessel,
safe operation and right-of-way, operator responsibilities and local waterway characteristics.
- Therefore Captain Mannis requires all first time renters to participate in the Captain Mannis boating safety, handling and navigation orientation.
- This orientation provided by our US Coast Guard licensed Captain is the best around and entails the renter actually operating the boat on a cruise usually ending up at your dock.
- Orientation entails 1-2 hours AND IS IMPERATIVE FOR YOUR PERSONAL SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF YOUR PASSENGERS.
Once you have completed the orientation you will receive a certification card and will not be required to take another orientation when renting at Captain Mannis in the future.
There is a one time Captains fee of $200.
- At the end of the day you will know more than many local boaters!
- Operators who possess a “valid” Captain License issued by the U.S. Coast Guard
- A $1000.00 damage is required and must be held (usually via Credit Card hold) by Captain Mannis before a boat is released.
- A valid credit card must be on file at Captain Mannis as additional guarantee.
- All U.S. Coast Guard required safety equipment is on board plus a First Aid kit, GPS, fish finder/depth finder, two anchors, fenders, dock lines and local charts.
- Fuel cost is paid by the renter.
