Return Details

Returns to original departure point
At the boat rental shop in South Lake Tahoe, receive a safety briefing about boating on Lake Tahoe and a lesson on how to operate your powerboat. When you’re ready, hop in with your family or friends to begin your adventure on the lake, depending on the option selected when booking.

Cruise across the water at your own pace, checking out Nevada Beach, Crystal Bay, Meeks Bay, Rubicon Point, Skunk Harbor, Sand Harbor or one of several other beaches and coves. Perhaps visit one of Tahoe’s most beautiful and popular spots, Emerald Bay, where you can admire the tiny island in the middle from your boat. If you get hungry, pull up at a lakeside restaurant like Gar Woods or Sunnyside, or use your boat for water sports like knee-boarding, waterskiing, tubing or wakeboarding (you may use your own equipment, if you have it, or rent gear and wetsuits from the boat rental shop).

When your rental period ends, just return your boat to the marina.

had so much fun! the crew was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the lake. The boat was good enough for 8people. Were allowed to jump off the boat, bring foods and drinks (beers). We booked the boat to the last min. this is the only company that allows you to jump off the boat. We’ll definitely come back

Had a fantastic time with our 3 elementary age grandchildren. The entire staff was great!!! Knowledgable, friendly, helpful. Everything went perfectly...even though we had very little previous experience, in boating. The boat was nice and there were not any surprise charges at the end. Gas was reasonable... 20 for an hr. Be generous with your tips. The staff deserves ut. It was the highlight of out trip.

Lake Tahoe is one great place and being on the water is great, the blue water is breath taking. The one line reservation process is less than expected. It could have been clearer and made easier to let us know the location of the marina and their phone number.

The boating experience on Lake Tahoe was great. If you like the cold water it is the best. We were able to wake board and enjoy the beautiful blue water. The scenery from the lake point of view was spectacular. The booking of the boat was less than clear. There was no information during and after the booking process on the location of the marina. And there were no scheduling time listed on when the boat would be available. When we arrive at the marina our boat was not available and we had to pay more for the boat that was available on the time that we request. If I had to do it over I would do more research before I booked with this company.
