What type of vessels do you offer?

Members have unlimited access to a top of the line fleet that includes power/ski boats, deck boats, pontoons and kayaks/canoes/SUP's. We also provide all the water toys such tubes, skis, wake boards, and knee boards.

Why should I join a boat club instead of buying my own boat?

Boat ownership is the right choice for some families.  However, our members prefer a more convenient and cost-effective solution to boating. Our members no longer have to worry about scheduled maintenance, "unscheduled maintenance" issues, towing, launching, cleaning or even uncovering and covering a boat before and after use at one-third the cost of boat ownership!

Am I guaranteed a boat every time I want one?

Availability is everything for us.  Without this we wouldn't have a club.  We monitor availability closely and maintain pre-defined ratios for members to boats to ensure delivery against targets.  We estimate that we have delivered a 97%+ availability rate over the last five years.  97% is actually better than what you would get if you owned the boat yourself, when you consider scheduled and "unscheduled" service needs! 

Who is included in the membership?

Membership is restricted to the individual who signs up including their spouse and dependant children. You must be 21 years of age to reserve and operate the boat. You are more than welcome to bring as many guests as allowed per the rating of the boat.  Guests or member's children under the age of 21 are not allowed to use a boat without an adult member on board at all times.

How do I sign up?

Go to the "Membership Plans" page and call or email us for a membership activation form.  Sign up and be out on the lake this weekend!

What if I am still unsure?

In some situations we are able to offer prospective members a one-day "trial membership" of the Club.  To be clear, this is only offered to prospective members with whom we've had prior conversations and is not offered as an alternative to a rental through Jocassee Outdoor Center.  Prospective members pay for their use of a boat that day but the fees are applied against the initiation fees due upon joining.
