Watercraft Rental

Pontoons, personal watercraft and more

Rent Pontoons & Watercraft


A stay at Marina Rowena can include enjoying beautiful Lake Cumberland in Kentucky from one of the Marina’s watercraft.

Our pontoons are ready for rentals for various sized groups, and the Sea-Doos can add fun to any trip to the lake.

Whether your plans include a scenic ride, a picnic or a little fishing out on the lake, make sure to reserve the watercraft you want as soon as possible. All reservations are made and confirmed by phone.

There is NO TOWING behind any rented watercraft.

Boating Safety Course

First-time PWC operators must view a 10-minute safety video.

As you make plans to head to Marina Rowena, make sure to review the rules of the road for boating Kentucky Lakes. Boaters of ANY age can take either the online or instructor led Boating Safety course. It is required to operate a boat if you are 12-17 years old. The online version can be taken at home at any time. The online versions AND the instructor led classroom course result in the same “blue card” license. There’s more information HERE.

Fishing Licenses

While there is no fishing in the Marina Rowena Harbor, you will need a license if you plan to fish while out on the lake. Fishing Licenses can be purchased online for the day you plan to fish HERE.


We look forward to seeing you at Marina Rowena! While you are there, stop in at the Ship’s Store to gear up for your trip, and take advantage of Rowena View Café for a menu full of wonderful food. Non-ethanol fuel is available at Marina Rowena in 87 octane regular or 93 octane premium.
