A Guide to Boat Rentals in Lake of the Ozarks

A group of people on a pontoon, one of the boat rentals available at this Lake of the Ozarks resort.

One of the best things to do on a hot summer day is to spend the day out on the water. For anyone planning a stay at Alhonna Resort this summer, enjoying this summer pastime is easier than you think. Guests at our Lake of the Ozarks resort have access to a number of boat rentals. 

A Checklist of Vessels of All Speeds

We understand everyone’s perfect day out on the lake can look a little different. Whether you prefer a pontoon rental or something with a bit more speed, there are options for every type of outing. The best way to ensure you get the rental of your choice is by staying with us on weekdays. This also allows you to enjoy the lake without the large weekend crowds, making your outing more quiet and enjoyable. 


Reserve a 25-foot or 27-foot-long pontoon boat for anywhere from a half day to multiple days. The larger option can hold up to 12 people. All boats have bimini tops that help provide shade as well as onboard motors. These watercraft can pull one inner tube.

Bass Boats

For anyone looking to enjoy a day of fishing, a bass boat is probably the right fit. The 17-foot boat has seating for two, a fish finder, and live well. You can reserve one for a half day all the way up to a week. We only send our bass boats out on weekdays during the summer due to how busy the lake can be. Remember, if you are going to go fishing, you need to purchase a Missouri fishing license

Kayaks & Paddleboards

Another fantastic option is a kayak or paddleboard rental. Kayaks come in both single and tandem options. Paddleboards are designed to hold one rider. These rentals are available from one hour up to eight. 

Important Things to Keep in Mind

While you can reserve a boat for multiple days, they may only be operated from sunrise to sunset. Rentals are due back at the resort no later than 6 p.m. To learn more about commonly asked questions, visit our FAQ page.
