If you have been thinking about renting a boat during your next visit to New Hampshire, but aren’t sure you’re ready for a powerboat, consider Lake Winnipesaukee row boats from the NH Hole in the Wall. Our row boat rentals are a great way to get out on the lake and see it from a new perspective without getting in over your head. Motorboats with more than 25 HP require a state-approved boating safety certificate, but when it comes to row boat rentals on Lake Winnipesaukee, there’s no license or certificate required. If you are going to do any fishing, you can quickly pick up a 1-day, 3-day or 7-day license from our bait and tackle stores in Wolfeboro before heading out to the water. However, if you just want to enjoy the scenery and are interested in trying a new activity, row boats are a lot of fun.
Types of Rowing Boats Available
When you visit our website or contact our store, you will discover that there are two different types of row boats available for rental. Choose from a 13-foot Rossiter Classic Crew row boat and a 17-foot Rossiter Classic Crew row boat, depending on your needs. Not sure which option is best? Our friendly and helpful team members can help you make a decision regarding any of our boat rentals on Lake Winnipesaukee. We can provide you with details about deposits, costs for half-day, daily, and weekly rentals, as well as other information regarding personal flotation devices and other safety gear.
In addition to row boat rentals, we also rent canoes and kayaks. Paddleboards and kypads, which are a combination of a kayak and a paddleboard, are also popular choices for rent and purchase at our bait and tackle stores in Wolfeboro. If you want to try your hand at a motorboat, but don’t want to go through the trouble of getting a boating safety certificate, we have several models that are 25 HP that don’t require you to take a course. However, we do highly recommend that you at least take a local or online safety course prior to your visit, especially if you are new to boating. This small step will help you to have even more fun out on the water with all of the anxiety that typically affects those who have never operated a boat on such a large body of water.
Health Benefits of Row Boat Rentals
Looking to do more on your Lake Winnipesaukee vacation than just get away from your home or office? Visitors who want to experience healthy activities, burn off those extra summer calories, or de-stress from the pressures of daily life can really benefit from using our Lake Winnipesaukee row boats. Rowing is a cardio workout, which means that both your heart and lungs will get some exercise. Your arms, including biceps and triceps, as well as back muscles, will also get some attention. Rowing machines are quite popular but don’t get the comprehensive workout that you will get from actually rowing a real boat out on the lake. All of this extra exercise can help you burn off that ice cream cone you enjoyed with the family or those breakfast donuts and muffins at the hotel.
Beyond weight loss and exercise, other health benefits of using row boat rentals are to relieve stress and reduce anxiety. Sometimes just a short row out on the calm water can be a great way to focus on the moment and stop worrying about everything waiting for you back at home. Some studies show that rowing a boat is a very meditational activity which can be enjoyed and appreciated by just about any individual, regardless of physical strength and experience with Lake Winnipesaukee row boats. Besides, rowing a boat is a lot of fun. Whether you get out on the water by yourself to enjoy some solitude, or if you go with a partner or friend, you can sight-see, fish, explore, and just enjoy the beautiful, natural surroundings here in New Hampshire.
Practical Advantages of Row Boat Rentals
Compared to other types of boat rentals on Lake Winnipesaukee, in particular, motorboat and powerboat rentals, row boat rentals are much more affordable. In addition, the cost for fuel while using a motorized vessel can add up, especially if you rent it for the duration of your visit. If you are concerned about your carbon footprint and the amount of pollution that you contribute to the local environment, Lake Winnipesaukee row boats might be a good solution for you. Canoes, row boats, kayaks, and other people-powered vessels are a great way to get around the lake community without burning fuel or contributing to pollution in that way. Noise pollution is also a concern for many who appreciate the natural environment, so using a row boat would decrease that as well.
