We cannot estimate the amount of fuel that you will burn during your rental time. It depends on which boat you are renting and what you do during your day on the water.

Fuel burn will change with speed, weight being carried (persons, and cargo), and sea conditions. The tank will be full when you depart and toped-off when returned. We will get an exact measurement of fuel consumed and charge accordingly per gallon. The slower you go, the less you’ll burn.
