Boats

Rockview Cottages has one of the best fleets of fishing boats on all of Lake Nipissing. For the convenience of our guests, our boats are all equipped with steering wheels to make it a little easier to navigate into those prime fishing spots. Our boats also include 25hp or 40hp electric start Mercury motors, a fish finder, live well, casting platform, swivel seats, running lights and all required safety equipment.

 

Please note that we require that all persons wear a lifejacket while using any watercraft and we provide lifejackets in most sizes for adults and kids.

Important Information Regarding Watercraft Regulations.

 

All operators of powered watercraft used for recreational purposes within Canada require the card as of September 15 2009.

 

Non-residents (of Canada) only need to obtain a Pleasure Craft Operator Card if they are operating their powered boat in Canadian waters for more than 45 consecutive days or if the boat they are operating is registered or licensed in Canada (this includes rented boats). Boater Education Cards or equivalent certifications are recognized in Canada. Proper identification should be kept on board at all times to provide proof of residency.

 

Currently, a Pleasure Craft Operator Card is not required in order to operate a rented watercraft. Instead, it is sufficient for a renter to complete a rental safety checklist. Take note however that some companies have made it their corporate policy to require renters to have their Pleasure Craft Operator Card.

 

Note: The Pleasure Craft Operator Card is not required for guests of Rockview Cottages renting one of our boats. It is required for Canadian guests who are bringing their own boat.

Rockview Cottages has a large well protected boat docking area. We can accommodate up to 14 boats of various shapes and sizes. Our shore is protected by an island just offshore which means that even during the worst weather conditions, our dock and boats are kept safe and sound. Our docks are located just steps away from the cottages, so you won’t have any trouble bringing your fishing gear down to the boat and bringing your catch up for dinner.
