Can anyone pilot a houseboat and is there a special license required?
All rental boats are designed for ease of operation and durability. You must be 21 years of age for both Echo Bay and Callville Bay and present a valid driver’s license. A foreign or International driver’s license acceptable, but a passport alone is not enough. No special boating licenses or skills are required. The captain must understand English well enough to receive instruction. Upon checkout of your boat or houseboat, an experienced instructor will be assigned to you for an orientation session. This individual will show you how to operate all equipment on your vessel. Also, you will be shown how to pilot the boat.
