Jordan Lake Boat Rentals

Pittsboro, NC – Realtors are expected to be experts in their communities. I’m always collecting info about schools, restaurants, events, kids sports and more. But one of the most frequent questions I get is: “Can you rent a boat on Jordan Lake?”

Yes, you can. But the info is a little hard to gather. And Jordan Lake is in my backyard – literally five minutes away from Monterrane.

So here’s a quick list of some good resources for various kinds of boat rental on Jordan Lake – fishing boats, pontoons, jet skis, kayaking and canoeing. Something for everyone.

Easy paddling, low cost and a shallow draft make kayaking a great way to get close to natrure on the lake. Kayak Adventures has lots of great themed trips including “Paddle with the Beavers,” “Sunset Full Moon Paddles,” private parties and standard rentals of canoes and kayaks.

More Info

So there you have: something for everyone.

There are many other suppliers of boats, rentals and tours on the lake. Many don’t even have a website. Try a few of these folks up above and, while you’re here, ask around at one of the local bait and tackle stores for info on boat rentals and guides.

    I see that these are both guided tours, are there any that will just rent a pontoon boat to you? It doesn’t have to be on Lake Jordan just curious to know what is close to Raleigh that might offer this. At Lake Norman you can rent a pontoon boat for most of the day to have around 10 people on board and its pretty reasonable.

    Julie,

    FYI, we’re now offering pontoon boat RENTALS on Jordan Lake, as well as Stand-up Paddle Boarding….

    Had to break down and offer the pontoons, since I had sooooo many people calling about them.

    Our website: http://www.jordanlakenc.com

    Hope you can come visit sometime!
