Boat Hire Rules

There is one direct route for guests crossing to and from The Island. 

We understand it may seem like a fun idea to use the boats outside of this route but it is extremely dangerous to both guests, other lake users & The Islands electric and water supply. 

We have had one guest break this rule, fortunately without incident but to help deter this from happening again, a charge of £250 will apply to your booking for using the waters in any of the following ways:-

Driving outside of the access route

Driving in an unsafe manner

“Racing” the boats

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs

Driving and not being one of the designated drivers.



Please remember

*Give way to all other boats

*Most ski boats will be travelling anticlockwise

*Most will be towing at least one person

*Watch out for fallen skiers – other boat drivers may raise their hand to signal they have a skier in the water.  You may acknowledge this by also raising your hand.


This agreement is applicable to all renters, guests, operators, passengers and users of The Island & boats. The term ‘Owner’ includes all of the Owner’s employees, agents, representatives, servants, assigns, successors, and insurers.


  1. WAIVER/RELEASE OF LIABILITY By the execution of this Agreement, the Renter agrees that the Owner shall not be liable for any damages arising from personal injuries sustained by the undersigned, their fellow guests and any minor children under the undersigned’s custody, care, and control, as a result of any and all activities related to the rental, operations, or use of The Island & Boats.  The Renter assumes full responsibility for any such injuries or damages which may occur, and further agrees that Owner shall not be liable for any loss or theft of personal property.  The Renter specifically agrees that Owner shall not be responsible for such injuries, damages, loss or theft, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF NEGLEGENCE OR FAULT BY THE Owner, whether such negligence is present at the acknowledgement of this Release or takes place in the future. This Waiver and release does not apply to gross negligence or intentional torts by Owner.
  2. EXPRESS ASSUMPTION OF RISK The Renter hereby agrees that he/she is renting, operating or using The Island & Boats at his/her own risk.  The guest agrees that he/she is voluntarily participating in all activities related to the rental, operation, or use of The Island & Boats, and assumes all risk of injury, illness, damage or loss that might result, even if the risks arise out of negligence or fault of Owner.
  3. LIABILITY TO THIRD PARTIES The Renter hereby agrees that he/she will indemnify and hold harmless Owner for all personal injuries, property damages, or any other damages to any and all third parties, including, but not limited to, operators and passengers of the watercraft and minor children under the undersigned’s custody, care, and control, as a  result of any and all activities related to the rental, operation, or use of The Island &  Boats, even if the such damages arise out of the negligence of the Owner.

Additional Terms and Conditions

  1. Acceptable Use.  Renter agrees and acknowledges that he/she will be the sole operator of the Boats, and will use the Boats in a careful, safe and conscientious manner.  Renter shall at all times observe and adhere to any rules and guidelines posted by the Owner, and any applicable laws and regulations of the lake.  Renter shall be responsible at all times for the safety of all passengers in and around the Boats.
  2. Prohibited Activities.  Renter shall not violate any of the following rules and regulations during his/her operation of the Boats.  There is no smoking while in the Boats.  The Boats will not be operated whilst under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

  4. Unsafe Use.  If at any time Owner determines that the Renter has engaged in unsafe or hazardous use of the Boats, Owner may immediately terminate the rental portion of this Agreement.  If the rental is terminated for unsafe or hazardous use the Renter will not be refunded his/her rental fee.  Owner shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether any behaviour of the activity is “unsafe or hazardous”.
  5. The damage deposit or equivalent when booking via Airbnb or other platforms for The Island also includes the use of the Boat.  The deposit or equivalent will be applied toward the cost to repair any and all damages suffered to the Boat during the time of the rental.  If the cost of repair exceeds the damage deposit, Renter agrees he/she is fully responsible for the remainder of the costs incurred to restore the Boats to the condition it was in at the time the rental began.  Should any damages exceed the damage deposit, Owner will provide an itemised repair bill, including the lost rental time (lost rental time begins with the date of the itemised repair bill, and stops when the watercraft is once again available for rental).
  6. The Renter will not use the Boat until they understand the instructions for use which will be given in person or sent by video.
  7. Condition of Boat upon Return.  The Renter shall return the Boat to Owner on or before the termination date and at the mainland jetty clean and free of garbage and debris, in the same condition in which the Boat was rented.
