When you visit New Hampshire for the first time, you will see right away that one of the most popular activities is getting boat rentals on Lake Winnipesaukee. If you have a boat, you can do just about anything, whether you rent a canoe, rowboat or motorized vessel. Boat rentals in Wolfeboro at the NH Hole in the Wall can help you get out on the water to experience it all. Recreational water sports and fishing are two favorite pastimes, but exploring the shoreline, islands, and beaches is another. The best way to make sure you are able to make the most out of your New Hampshire boat rentals experience is to secure your rental ahead of your visit.
Four Seasons of Fun
Lake Winnipesaukee is a recreational area like no other. There are fun things to do in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. When the lake freezes over people go snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and fishing – right out on the ice. You can even rent fishing tackle in New Hampshire in case you forget your gear or if you want to try your hand at a seasonal fishing experience for the first time. However, because this region is so popular with tourists and seasonal visitors, it is in your best interest to plan ahead. No matter what time of year you come to the Greater Wolfeboro area, you will always see people out on the lake.
The best way to secure a boat rental is to contact our team at the NH Hole in the Wall either by phone or by using our online contact form. We can answer any questions that you might have about our boat rentals on Lake Winnipesaukee and get you set up with a deposit to hold the type of vessel you want during your stay. Canoes, kayaks and rowboats don’t require a special license to operate; however, you might want to check out an online boating safety course before you get here so that you’ll know what to expect. Safety certificates are required to operate motorized boats that are more than 25 horsepower (HP), which means that you can still rent a 25 HP vessel without a certificate.
Fishing & Hunting Licenses
You will also require a fishing (or hunting) license when you come to New Hampshire. Browse the NH Hole in the Wall website for pricing and information on how to obtain a visitor’s fishing license when you arrive. Combination licenses are also available if you plan on doing both fishing and hunting during your visit. One-day, three-day, and seven-day fishing licenses are available. Some licenses are only available to residents of New Hampshire, such as clams and oysters. Small game, big game, seasonal game, and migratory waterfowl will all require licenses as well for hunting.
OHRV registrations are also available through the NH Hole in the Wall, depending on the season. If you would like to obtain registrations for snowmobiles, ATVs and other similar vehicles, two-wheel trail bikes, or transfers and replacement registrations, we can assist. Call us for pricing to make sure you get accurate numbers for the current year. Don’t forget about licenses for ice fishing, saltwater fishing, and other recreational sports that require licenses before participating. The more you can do ahead of your visit, the less time you will spend dealing with all of the licensing, registration, and reservations when you get here.
