Lakes and bodies of water are one of the largest attractions to the outdoor space for our visitors. Vista Recreation manages small boat and canoe rentals in nearly every state we operate in, and has numerous multimillion-dollar, large, marina facilities. Our ability to maintain these spaces, protect and guard stewardship of these precious resources, and provide safe and fun experiences are integral aspects to our Marina jobs. Vista Recreation utilizes instructors to certify our Marina employees in everything from HAZWOPER Incident Commanders and cable rigging, to certified boat operators. All Marina staff members are required to hold necessary certifications and possess essential guest service attributes.
