Never driven a boat? No problem! You will be given full instructions, then guided out by our captains, and the boat is yours or we will gladly captain the boat for you! Either way there is no extra charge. You can navigate the lake as much or as little as you want. The owners and staff want you to experience personal house-boating to its fullest on the best lake in the Southern US.
