How old do you have to be for Rad Dad pontoon rentals at Lake of the Ozarks?

To rent and operate a boat from Rad Dad, you must be at least 25 years of age. And you must also be rad.

How much does it cost to rent a Rad Dad boat?

When you rent a boat from Rad Dad Boat Rental, you’ll get a top-notch 26’ Landau tritoon boat with all the ingredients you need to have a great time delivered right to you. Our boat rentals are $500 a day with a two-day minimum.

What is the cancellation policy?

Why would you want to cancel your Rad Dad rental? But really, if you must, please cancel your boat rental at least 30 days before the start of your rental period to receive a full refund. Cancellations within 30 days of the boat rental will be charged a $500 cancellation fee. Cancellations must be made by phone.

Does the boat come with gas?

When the boat is delivered to your slip, it will have a full tank of gas – hot dog! The gas tank must be refilled by the time of pickup. If the gas tank is not full upon pickup, the cost of gas will be deducted from the deposit.

What is included in the cost of the boat rental?

In addition to boat delivery to and pickup from your dock, your boat will come with life vests, an inflated towable boat tube, noodles, and even squirt guns, so you can be a total rad dad. For an additional $80/day, you can also rent kayaks and paddleboards that will be delivered with your boat rental.

Where are the boats delivered?

Right to you, captain. You name the dock, and we’ll deliver your boat rental directly to you and pick it up. If you’re staying at a resort, you will need to confirm or rent an open slip for us to deliver the boat to and for overnight storage.

How many people can fit on the pontoon boats?

Each boat can hold a maximum of 12 people. More than that? You’ll just have to double the fun with a second boat.

Can you have refreshments on the boat?

Of course! We want you to have a good time, but don’t go overboard. No, really, please don’t. Cans only; no glass.

Can the boats pull a tuber or skier behind the boat?

Heck yes! Our Landau pontoon boats are powerful enough to pull tubers and skiers behind the boat. Included in the cost of your rental is a free inflated towable tube, tow rope and life vests.

Are dogs allowed on the boats?

Man’s best friend? Of course.
