People with no boating experience, BE AWARE.

This review is not meant to hurt the business -- this is meant to prep newbies for some things we wish the business had prepped us for. This review is intended for people who are new to boating, and who do not have a license other than the one HP Powersports will provide you for the day. There are some things that are likely to happen which will result in your $269 (+tax and fuel) rental turning into a $700(+) rental.

HP Powersports will not give a lot of detail for best ways to protect his boats - he is used to renting to experienced boaters. He talks very quickly, does not repeat much nor emphasize much, and focuses on how *not to get lost* ... **NOT how to protect his boats.***

It is VERY easy to damage the propellor blades on the outboard motor - ***you will not know you are close to the rocks and weeds.***

So when he gives you directions to just stay in the middle of the water-way, so as not to get lost - what he is also saying is, **DO NOT get close to shore AT ALL because there is a HIGH likelihood you will damage the prop blades and get weeds caught-up in the blades.**

At the time we rented a pontoon boat (Sept 2021), he had two boats available to rent and rented them in half-day intervals. That means there are max 28 rental opportunities per week. When we returned the pontoon, only to find the price inflated to $700 because we had apparently driven over rocks and weeds, he showed FOUR such damaged prop blades on the wall and said that we were the FIFTH to happen in ONE week. So, assuming he did not rent all 28 times in one week, it would seem there is almost a 20% (1 in 5) likelihood you will be paying $700+ for your 4-hour boat rental.

Perhaps your best bet is don't rent from HP Powersports f you have no experience and no license. Either that or stay in the DEEPEST water you can, and be prepared to pay **A LOT** for your 4-hour excursion.

With the small amount of instruction HP Powersports gave us, we wouldn't have done anything differently. We truly had NO idea we had driven over rocks or weeds. Unfortunately, it has left a pretty bad taint to what we thought was 4 hours of fun to see the Thousand Islands from the water ... only to find out the rental went from $269 to $700.

This place is absolutely outstanding! It is extremely customer service driven. The owner Steve is extremely helpful, friendly and cares about people. Its very clean and has an easy going, laid back feeling to it. Makes you feel like you're away in the Caribbean... that open door feeling, with water sport toys (seadoos/boats/lied jackets/docks, etc). We rented a seadoo and had a great time. The seadoos are all new and work very well. Well worth the cost, which is in our opinion very reasonable. This is going to be a place we come back to, time and time again! Thanks for everything, Steve!

Steve Pavao offers excellent service, and the property and fixtures are first class and well kept. We keep our boat there all summer, and he keeps an eye on it. The slips are excellent, and there is a launch ramp, and a small shop with drinks available. We don't use the boat and jet ski rentals, but all the customers seem to come back happy!

I wanted to give my husband something special and exciting this year for Fathers Day this year! And Steve PAVAO and HP Powersport Marina came through with flying colours! I rented one of Steve's brand new pontoon boats and it took our breath away when we arrived! Luxurious...padded leather seating...table for dining...live well..retractable awning....swim ladder and all the bells and whistles! And it drove like a dream. Toured so many channels and islands on the magnificent St. Lawrence River...anchored for lunch and swims! Heavenly! Cruised for 4 incredible hours and we all agreed....best thing we ever did!👍👍👍👍👍 Next week...renting it for the day!!
