About
We will meet you at the dock of either Lake Jocassee or Lake Keowee and deliver to you the boat and everything nautical needed for you and your guests to have a fun-filled day on the lake. You bring the people, some goodies to eat and drinks and off you go. On those busy days in the summer, when it is impossible to get into Devils Fork State Park, we will meet you at our parking area and shuttle you and your guests into the park. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to enjoy the beauty of either lake with your friends and family. Happy customers mean we are doing our job right!

The service provided was both friendly and professional. The boat was clean and easy to operate. I would use them again.

My South Carolina family surprised me with a wonderful day on Jacassee Lake, by renting a pontoon boat from Jocassee Keowee Rentals. The boat was waiting for us at the dock ready to go with we arrived. With a quick once over on boat rules and places to see we were off. The lake is beautiful, warm and with lots of waterfalls to motor too. After our 4 hour lake adventure, we pulled the boat back up to the dock and check out was a breeze. Great way to send a day with family.

We have been on Lake Jocassee twice and rented a pontoon from Stephanie! Never any issues and always treated great 😊 Highly recommend Jocassee Keowee Rentals and we definitely recommend exploring Lake Jocassee and the beautiful scenery all around the lake!!

Stephanie at Jocassee Keowee Rentals is the real deal! We called last minute on a Friday evening to see if we could rent a boat to cruise Lake Jocassee at sunset, and she hooked us up! She didn't have to honor our (very) last-minute request, but she did. She was super kind, knowledgeable, and professional, and we will definitely be back. The boat we rented was exceptionally clean and easy to operate. The sunset cruise around the lake made our vacation! Rent from this place - you won't regret it! :)

It was an amazing day full of scenic views and an awesome boat to ride around! We all enjoyed it so much! They were very patient with us when we arrived. The parking situation is a little crazy at the boat ramp so arrive early and anticipate that. They give a quick but Informative lesson before you depart a long with a map that has the good spots marked for you. All of the crew were really friendly and helpful! 10/10 would do this again!

We took a private tour of Lake Jocassee waterfalls with lunch and were so happy at the end of the day. It was perfect. Our tour guide and owner of the company was so much fun. She went above and beyond our expectations. Not only is she very knowledgeable about the lake, wildlife and history of the area, she is a great story teller. Thanks Stephanie.

My family and I have rented pontoon boats from Stephanie and Michelle for the past 3 years at JOCASSEE KEOWEE RENTALS LLC. After today WE WILL NOT do business with them ever again!!! They rented us a boat with expired registration and out of state plates. SHADY SHADY SHADY!!! The boat also did not have all the safety features (no horn). This is how it all happened: They were running behind schedule for our 9 am rental…Although they ask for a 40min before arrival time. We were all excited for our vacation and ready to get in the water, we thought it was no biggie and patiently waited on them to get everything ready but in the end, getting off the dock was rushed. They gave us whatever boat, smaller than what we typically get for our family of 9. The boat had a smaller back to it where we normally lay down and tan. The next thing we know, we get stopped by DNR and get fined for having someone laying in the back!!! Also, we lost about 30 minutes of our time! We head back and the result is as follows: Stephanie BLAMED US for everything. She accused us for not reading the “safety videos” they never sent to us. But she was adamant they were sent and stated they were also on their website. Again, I’m a 3 prior year customer, I booked this boat for today over a phone call/text/and emails. I didn’t even know they had a website. THEY DID NOT COVER THE FINE AND TIME LOST AS THEY SHOULD HAVE. Unbelievable. What a business owner- blaming and making their customers pay fines for things (in Stephanie’s words) “you should be paying attention to as Captain” when all we wanted was to enjoy family time on the lake. I repeat DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS COMPANY, THEY ARE TOTALLY FRAUD, NEGLIGENT, AND LACK OWNERSHIP OF THEIR OWN MISDOINGS, IM TRUELY DISGUSTED WITH THE WAY THEY HANDLED THE SITUATION. THE PUBLIC NEAR BY OVERSEEING THE ARGUMENT WISHED ME GOOD LUCK AND CHEERED ME ON BUT IT WAS NOT ENOUGH. DO NOT LEASE FROM THEM. IF YOU TAKE A CHANCE MAKE SURE TO INSPECT EVERYTHING.

Our company has been in business for 23 years and It is our mission and joy to do what we can to make everyone's experience a positive one We unfortunately cannot always do so. There are many factors that were not addressed in your complaint that contributed to the unfortunate events of the day. And while bad circumstances cannot be bought off; you were reimbursed $100 towards the fine that was incurred due to improper operation of the vessel. While rare situations like this one do occur.. Our length in business and Google ratings speak for themselves.

Boat rental was easy to book, affordable, pet friendly, and boat was in good condition.

However, I would not recommend doing a reservation with this company, instead just watch the weather and book on a pretty day. I watched the weather for days before our trip, and decided to proceed day of. Was told by Stephanie that since it was raining, if we decided to come back early, she would refund us some money. We payed almost $500 and only spent 4 hours (half our time of 8 hours) on the water. We were only able to see 2 waterfalls. After contacting her MULTIPLE times to try and get some money back, she finally never responded and we basically got the run around the entire time. I will never book with them again, you must keep your word as a business owner, and also just be fair with people!
