Boat Rentals FAQ

Lake Granby, Colorado


Q: Can we get to Grand Lake from there?
A: Yes, in your car, but not by boat. Lake Granby is not connected by navigable water to any other lake.

Q: Can we swim in the lake?
A: Yes. There is no swim beach on Lake Granby, but you can swim in the lake. Keep in mind that the water is colder than you would expect, and we recommend wearing a PFD. Our rental pontoons are equipped with boarding ladders for swimming.

Q: Do we need life jackets?
A: We provide life jackets, or Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs) for everyone on our rental boat, including infants and children. Children under 13 years old must wear their life jacket at all times while on board. Adults are not required to wear them, but we do recommend it. And we highly recommend wearing a PFD if you are swimming. If you bring your own life jackets for yourself or your children, we will inspect them to make sure that they are Coast Guard approved and meet the requirements.
