For those that love DIY fishing excursions - Monti Bay has you covered with a variety of boat rental options!

Guests of the Monti Bay Lodge can rent boats for the day or the week, and if you book early you can take advantage of discounted rates.

For saltwater fishing, we have two motorboat options:

The 16' Deep V Self Bailing Motorboats are located at the Harbor by the Resort Cabins - these are custom boats designed for fish storage - and the quickest way to get out on the water!

15' Smoker Craft Motorboats are ready to go on trailers located next to the Monti Bay Lodge Suites. You can use the van that is designated for your cabin or suite to tow the boats.

For freshwater fishing:

We have two drift boats ready to go on trailers. You can use the van designated for your cabin or suite to tow the boats. Guests can arrange to have the Monti Bay staff help with a drop off and parking the van at a designated stop for your return.
