How it works

Booking a reservation is as easy as making your reservation online through our booking app, website, or by calling (270) 242-7205. Arrive at the marina on the day of your reservation and hop on the boat, which will be cleaned, fueled, and ready to go! You can even call ahead to request ice, toys, or one of Captain Ron’s famous breakfast sandwiches.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is each reservation?

Your session can begin as early as 8:30 am and lasts until 6:00 pm. Members can book after hours with an after hours checkout and agreement, which allows us to fuel the vessel for the next morning and charge the account on file. If you plan to come in later or come back early, please let us know so we can schedule accordingly for other members who may want to use the vessel.

Is there a limit on how often I can use the boats?

There is no limit to how many times you can use our boats. We encourage you to use them as if they were your own, giving you the ability to boat at your discretion.

When is the club open?

The club is open seven days a week from April 15 to October 15, depending on the lake level and weather conditions.

How difficult is it to reserve a boat when I want one?

Availability is key to our club’s success. We ensure boat availability by keeping one of the lowest member-to-boat ratios in the industry, with typically six to eight members per boat.

What if I've never boated before or don't feel comfortable behind the wheel?

No need to worry. We offer individual training sessions for every new member. You’ll receive training on each vessel, covering docking, cruising, towing, storage locations, use of emergency items, power settings, and more.

What other features does the club offer?

Prior to your scheduled departure, you have the option to reserve ice, beverages, and deli food that will be waiting for you upon arrival. Wax Marina offers incredible breakfast sandwiches, burgers, and more! Your membership also includes a 10% discount on items from our Marina Store and free access to our club watersports equipment, including tubes, skis, lily pads, and wakeboards.

Who is Wax Marina Boat Club meant for?

We are the ideal solution for anyone who is looking to get into boating in the greater Kentuckiana area. Whether you’re a seasoned boater or someone just starting out, we provide a completely hassle-free boating experience for you, your family, and your friends.

Members find they spend more time on the water and have more flexibility than they would if they owned a boat. Without having to worry about cleaning, storage, launching, towing, and maintenance, you can focus on spending more time with friends and family on the lake! You’ll save an average of one-and-a-half to two hours of labor and thousands of dollars that it costs to own your own boat.

How do I reserve a boat?

Our online reservation system makes booking a breeze. All of your information is pre-filled after the first time you fill it out, so booking takes just a few minutes. Each member can have up to three reservations on the calendar at one time and unlimited bookings throughout the season. You can even book within 24 hours of the launch without affecting your future reservations.

Can I share my club account with my friends?

You are more than welcome to bring friends as long as they sign a release of liability waiver. However, the club boats can only be reserved and driven by club members or the spouse/partner that is listed on the club agreement contract.

Can I bring my pet onboard?

Yes, we are a pet friendly club! However, any excess pet hair, stains, or messes will result in a $50 cleaning fee. If carpet, upholstery, or interior is damaged due to pets or guests, the member is responsible to pay for repair beyond normal wear and tear. Again, please treat these vessels as if they were your own.

What is the reservation cancellation policy?

Failure to cancel within a 24-hour period from the launch date will result in a warning. A second violation will result in weekend restrictions for a four-week period. Members can add themselves to the waiting list for any days that are reserved by another member in case of cancellations.

What is the cancellation policy for the club?

There is no required period for your membership, you can cancel at any time. We do require a 60-day notice for any club cancellation with dues paid through the end of the membership. Initiation fee is non-refundable, regardless of how long you are part of the club.
