How Does the Boat Club Work?

Once you’re a member, it’s easy. With your own username and profile, you create, edit and cancel your boat reservations. Choose the type of boat you want, location, and time slot. We’ll have your boat clean, fueled up, and ready for you!

Is Our Boat Club Right for You?

Yes! If you enjoy:

  1. A variety of boats
  2. A variety of locations
  3. Convenience
  4. Less stress
  5. On the water training

Boat club memberships are great for boaters who want to save money (if you do the math, being in a boat club is about 1/3 the cost of owning boat) and limit the stress in their lives that can come from boat ownership. Carefree Boat Club of North Idaho also gives those who are new to boating a chance to learn the ropes of operating a boat. We love to share our passion for boating and offer private hands-on learning sessions. Our introduction to boating covers rules of navigation, local regulations, operation of each boat you are interested in piloting, general safety, knot tying, and more. We will also practice launching, landing, and safe maneuvering. This service is complimentary to new club members!

Carefree Boat Club of North Idaho also gives more seasoned boaters the opportunity to try different kinds of boats on different lakes. As a member, you’ll be boating on tritoon pontoons, fishing boats, open bows, wakesurf boats, and sailboats.
