Does anyone know how many people can fit in a rental boat at OKW? We will have 4 adults and 5 kids all under the age of 9. Also, is there a website with prices?

Thanks!

I am pretty sure you would all fit on a pontoon boat (I believe 10 is the maximum for those). The smaller canopy boats would not fit everyone in your party. They also have paddle boats that seat 2 and I believe they allow one child to sit on the back

I do not remember rental rates but you could call and ask.
Old Key West 407-827-7700
Fax - 407-827-7710
This is the front desk number but just ask for Hank's and they can give you the rental rates.

Personally if I was renting a boat for a group I might be tempted to go over to the Contemporary or Ft Wilderness and rent a boat from ther...so you can have a lot more scenic trip with more space to cruise. At OKW there is only the canal going to DTD that opens into the lake there at DTD which isn't too big. You can take the canal down by POR and POFQ and it is a scenic trip on the canal, but it is still a canal

definitely go to the Polyn, Cont or WL - and rent the boat - there is just more to see.

at OKW you can do the lagoon going to DD, DD, and then the PO area - that is it - more of switch you MUST go slow - so your waves won't get other boats in troubles.

at Bay Lake (WL & Cont) - or Seven Seas Lagoon (Polyn) you got lots of room - just stay out of the way of the big ferries.

As far as prices, I hope this picture is readable. It was taken just over 3 weeks ago, in April.
