We are still operating until we are told otherwise by Charlotte County and or State:
While we wash and scrub up our boats every time they come back from a rental, we are taking extra care to wipe down surfaces especially helm area and handles with disinfectant wipe.
We are working with Cape Haze Marina to stager our rentals boats launches 15 mins apart. We want to limit the number of people contact and practice social distancing. So we will call you the evening before your rental and give you time for boat launch. We will then have only 1 person from your party (the driver/captain) walk down to the boat with our staff member. Once the checkout is done on the boat with the driver our staff member will leave the dock and the rest of your party can load up on the boat and exit the dock. Due to time and to keep everyone safe we are asking you to be ON Time with all of your party for the boat rental. This to ensure we get you out on the boat as quickly as possible and keep social distancing. Then we time to come back we will ask you to hold off coming into the dock until directed by marina staff. Then to wait to exit the boat once marina staff is off the dock. Then our staff and the marina staff will move the boat and get it fueled and cleaned. Per our contract we take the fuel charge from your security deposit and the difference is refunded within 48 hours of the rental.
During the unusual times we are asking our renters to be understanding with the new operating procedures and policy. We are also asking if you or anyone in your party is sick please STAY HOME, we allow cancellation within 24 hours of rental full refund. If you or anyone in your party has traveled from the New York tri-state area within the last 2 weeks please STAY HOME. Once again we will refund you with 24 hour notice. These are put into place to protect you and our staff. We are still here making it the easy way to get away!
Thank you Abe’s Boat Rentals
