A few things to note:

  • Tow boat rides can sometimes get chilly with the wind, wear ample layers.

  • All passengers must wear PFD's fully zipped while riding in the towboat.

  • Parking available for round trip customers. Willy will park your vehicle in the secure lot after drop-off and will bring it to landing prior to pick-up. 

  • There may be delays due to weather, Willy reserves the right to cancel or postpone any tow due to risk management concerns. 

  • Please note: when driving to Vosburgh's Custom Cabin Rentals, make sure to continue downhill on Vosburgh Rd to the main boat landing (past William's and Hall Outfitters). Directions below.
