Great Service & Prices Pontoon Rental

We rented a pontoon for the afternoon. The service was great and the pricing was reasonable. When we arrived, the guys were real helpful about getting us started and giving us an idea of where to do some swimming. When we arrived back again, we were greeted with great service and very friendly employees. We would definitely recommend this place!

Family Fun Jet Ski Rental

We stayed for four days at Cherry Tree Inn and were very excited to see that they had Blue Sky Rentals on-site! My son immediately asked if we could try out the waverunners. He was incredibly excited! We flew around the lake, it was so much fun! My daughter and I went back out again the following day as well. So much fun and perfect weather for it!

Wonderful Day Pontoon Rental

We rented a Pontoon Boat and paddle boards at the Cherry Tree Inn location. What a great way to spend a few hours touring the bay! A very peaceful and relaxing afternoon. A great escape from the craziness of COVID and Traverse City! It was really great to just enjoy the fresh air and natural beauty of Traverse City. Highly recommend Blue Sky Rentals!

Great Customer Service Pontoon Rental

Mike and Sam went ABOVE & BEYOND the call of duty! I cannot say enough about the professionalism of this rental company. The experience was smooth from start to finish. They delivered the boat right on time and checked in several times. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND using them! You will NOT be disappointed. They go through how to use the boats step by step even if you're an experienced boater, they want to make sure you're safe! Thank you Blue Sky for making our vacation AWESOME!

Loved It Kayak Rental

This is the first time we have rented any equipment from Blue Sky rentals, and it was a very pleasant experience! We stayed at the Cherry Tree Inn and there is a rental hut on-property, so it was a very easy process. We rented three kayaks for two hours. The girl who was working was so nice, and such a hard worker! She hauled watercraft in and out of the water all day long, with a smile on her face. I would definitely use this service again.
