Pontoon FAQsRental Specials
Is there shade on the boat?

Yes! Each boat has a shade top that covers about half the seating area.

Do we need a boater’s license to rent in North Carolina?

While we recommend it, North Carolina does not require that you have a boater’s license when renting from a watersports business. We’ll give you a thorough safety orientation and take time to make sure you are comfortable operating the boat. If you would like to get your boater safety certificate, you can take a free online course from BoatUS.org.

Where can we go and what are the boundaries?

We typically recommend going to Dews Island across the Currituck Sound from Nor’Banks. Dews Island and the opposite shore have a beautiful, undeveloped shoreline—it’s a great spot to explore or drop anchor to swim and relax.

We ask that you stay north of the Wright Memorial Bridge, which is about 7 miles south of us, and that you do not go north of Nor’Banks, where it’s too shallow to operate.

Do you provide life vests?

Yes! Nor’Banks provides clean and comfortable life vests for your entire party, including kids. We have plenty of children’s life vests in sizes for kids less than 30 lb., 30-50 lb. and 50-90 lb. And, our vests are cleaned and sanitized between each use!

Can we bring our own life jackets?

Yes! You may use your own life vest as long as it is Coast Guard-approved. Please see our staff in the office for life vest approval before heading out on the water.

Can we bring a dog?

Small dogs are welcome, with a few qualifications. We ask that you only bring your pet along if you are 100% certain that they are comfortable on boats and will be safe and well-behaved. We do not provide pet life vests, and there is no pet boarding ladder on the pontoons.

Dogs can easily damage the vinyl seats with their claws or teeth. The seats are brand-new and cannot be repaired, so we’ll take an additional $500 deposit at the time of the rental in case we need to replace a cushion.

Can we go fishing and crabbing from the pontoon boat?

You are welcome to fish and crab from the pontoon boats. The fishing on the northern sound can be hit or miss, but the crabbing is usually good. We do not rent equipment or sell bait, but you can get gear in town at Bob’s Bait & Tackle.

When fishing, we ask that you please be mindful of your mess and careful with your catch, bait and tackle—especially around the vinyl seats, which can be easily stained and damaged.

Are the pontoon boats handicap accessible?

Unfortunately our boats are not wheelchair accessible. There are 2-3 steps leading down to the loading platform and passengers must step across a small gap between the dock and the boat to load.  If you or someone in your party have mobility issues please call us at 252 261 2900 to discuss your options.

Do we need a fishing license?

Yes, you will need a fishing license to fish on the Currituck Sound. You can get a temporary or year-round North Carolina fishing license at ncwildlife.org or by calling (888) 248-6834.

Can we hire a captain to drive the boat?

Due to Coast Guard regulations, we cannot hire captains to drive the pontoon boats. We’ll give you a 10-minute orientation and train a few people from your group to operate the boat safely. If you are specifically looking for a captained cruise, we have other options: Check out our tubing, wakeboarding and waterskiing trips or our catamaran cruises aboard Surfer Girl, our luxury Maine Cat 38 sailboat!

Which boat should I choose/what is the capacity of each boat?

All boats were purchased new in the last few years and come equipped with Bluetooth stereo, GPS, depth finder and swim ladder.

The capacity represents the maximum number of people and weight allowed on each boat. The limit is whichever is the largest—group size or the combined weight of the passengers. We are strictly limited to these capacities per Coast Guard regulation. We recommend sizing up for your party for a safe and comfortable ride.

Can we tow a tube behind the boat?

We do not allow tubing or other towables to be pulled behind our pontoon boat rentals. If you want to go tubing, wakeboarding or water skiing, you can book a tubing or watersports charter with one of our licensed captains. You can even book a boat to go alongside your pontoon and swap riders along the way for large groups!

Can we bring a cooler with drinks and food?

Yes! You are welcome to bring drinks and food. Keep in mind that operators are not allowed to drink and must remain completely alcohol-free.

Can my family rent more than one pontoon boat?

Absolutely! Keep in mind that you will not be able to dock those boats next to one another and that they will need to remain a safe distance apart.

Can we cook on the pontoon boat?

No, we do not allow any open flames or grills on the boats for safety reasons.

Do you provide a cooler/food storage on the pontoon boat?

We do not provide any coolers or food storage options, so you will need to bring your own. We have coolers available for purchase in our retail store.

Is the Pontoon boat safe for young children?

The Pontoon boats are safe for all ages, provided your child is large enough to fit in a USCG-approved life vest. Children 12 and under are required to wear a life jacket the entire time they are on board. We always encourage you to know your limits and ensure the children stay seated safely while the boat is underway.

Pontoon Specials: Use code MT25 for $25 off your rental on Monday or Tuesday.
