Boat Rental FAQ’s Page 1:
Do I have to have any special license to rent a boat?
You need to have a valid picture drivers license and be 21 years of age or older to rent a boat at Stillwater Boat Rentals. Rentals must also be secured on a Visa or MasterCard. Both the valid picture driver’s license and credit card must be present for your rental. If these two items are not present, we cannot send the rental out or make any amends to the credit card charge. This is done for identity theft protection
