At Woodard Marine, we prioritize the safety and well-being of all our clients and staff. As part of our commitment to maintaining high standards of safety and responsibility, our company policy requires that every driver or renter of our boats, regardless of their birth year, must possess a valid boating license. This policy applies universally, including to those born before 1973.
If you don't possess a boating license or safety certificate, rest assured, Woodard Marine has a solution in place for your convenience. Our policy mandates that all individuals above the age of 24, who intend to operate our boats, must complete an online safety boating course. Although the course guidelines may suggest that certain individuals are exempt due to age (often referred to as being "grandfathered in"), at Woodard Marine, we uphold a stringent standard for safety and proficiency. This means every prospective boat driver, regardless of age, is required to take this safety course.
To align with this policy, we kindly request you to select your state of residence and enroll in the online course. Successfully completing this course not only fulfills our company's safety requirements but also ensures you are well-prepared and knowledgeable about boating safety protocols. This step is crucial in maintaining the high standards of safety and responsibility we cherish at Woodard Marine.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in adhering to our safety policies. We look forward to providing you with an enjoyable and secure boating experience.

Lake Bomoseen offers a beautiful and diverse environment for boating, and we believe it provides an excellent setting for a variety of water activities. Our boats are specially chosen and maintained to suit the conditions of Lake Bomoseen, ensuring that you have a safe and enjoyable experience on the water.
We are committed to providing you with the best possible experience on Lake Bomoseen and look forward to assisting you with your boating adventure.
Regarding bringing pets aboard our rental boats at Woodard Marine. We completely understand how much joy and companionship pets bring, and that they are often considered part of the family. However, we have a policy in place where pets are not permitted on our boats. This decision is based on a couple of key considerations.
Firstly, the lack of suitable facilities on the boats for pets to relieve themselves presents a challenge. Additionally, we must consider the comfort and health of all our customers, including those who may have allergies to pet dander. Ensuring a comfortable and safe environment for everyone on board is a priority for us.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with this policy. While we regret any inconvenience this may cause to you and your furry friend, we believe this policy is in the best interest of all our customers to ensure a pleasant and safe boating experience.
If you have any further questions or need assistance with planning your boating adventure, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We are here to help you have an enjoyable and memorable experience on Lake Bomoseen.
