Are pets allowed on rental boats?

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.
