Presque Isle Boat Rental is Erie, PA's only rental post
located directly on Presque Isle State Park.


Presque Isle waterways and shoreline are home to some of the best fishing in the country. The Presque Isle Lagoons, Presque Isle Bay, and Lake Erie are home to 80 different species of fish...all waiting to be caught!

At Presque Isle Canoe and Boat Livery, we provide rental equipment to fisherman wanting to experience world-class fishing! We offer a variety of gas motor engines, electric motors, and non-powered watercrafts.

On-site, we have PFDs, bait (red worms and night crawlers), rod and reels, small and large nets, ice, and coolers.

Fisherman should bring their PA Fishing License, hat, sunglasses, sunblock, insecticide, and luck!!
