Availability

Reservations can be made for morning, afternoon and day rentals; morning reservations are 9am-1pm, afternoon rentals are 2pm-6pm, and day reservations are from 10am-5pm.  Long term and specialty rentals are available upon request. Advance reservations are suggested. Reservations require a $100 deposit; please have credit card, renter’s information and license information ready when calling and we will prepare your paperwork in advance. 

Renter Requirements:

Operator must be 30 years of age or older, have a valid car driver's license, valid credit card (Visa/MC/Amex) and a NJ Boater's Certificate or a Temporary Boater's Certificate from our facility. Security deposit is required. Reservations require a $100 deposit.  Rental cancellations are subject to a $25 fee.  We suggest renters arrive approximately 15-30 minutes in advance of their confirmed reservations to check-in.  Alcohol is not permitted.  One cooler per boat, please.  Each rental boat is limited to two (2) vehicles due to limited space at lakeside locations; additional parking is available for an $18 fee per car.  Bridge Marina strictly reserves the right to refuse or cancel rentals to unruly, unsafe, intoxicated or raucous individuals or groups. 

Boat License Requirements:

In New Jersey, if you wish to operate a motorized vessel, including a personal watercraft, you must have a Boating Safety Certificate and ‘Boat’ endorsement on your New Jersey driver’s license.   Bridge Marina is certified to provide you a temporary certificate during your rental at Bridge Marina, which includes mandatory review of all regulations as well as thorough hands-on pre-rental instruction.  All rental drivers receive our thorough pre-rental instruction and review of all NJ boating regulations; all boaters must comply with all federal and state boating laws, including those specific to Lake Hopatcong.

If you wish to obtain your permanent Boater Safety Certificate and obtain ‘Boat’ endorsement on your NJ Driver’s License, there is a new and convenient method to obtain your Boater Certificate through an online course called the Boat Ed New Jersey online boating course. Upon completion of the certified online course, the online portion will direct you to local testing facilities where you must take your final test; thereafter you will be provided a Boater Safety Certificate.  You will then take the Boater Safety Certificate to your local DMV and request your ‘Boat’ endorsement on your New Jersey Driver’s license after which you are fully licensed to drive a vessel or PWC on any of New Jersey’s waters (and most waters in other states where a boat license is required).

Boat Rental Capacity:  At Bridge Marina, your safety on the water is of our ultimate concern.  Overloading of a rental pontoon is dangerous for you, your guests, and other boaters.  Bridge Marina reserves the right to regulate the crew and gear on each boat rental to ensure your safety on the water.  Alcohol is not permitted.  Bridge Marina strictly reserves the right to refuse or cancel rentals to unruly, unsafe, intoxicated or raucous individuals or groups.
