The best way to get to experience Lake Tahoe is from the water. It is easy and surprisingly inexpensive to rent a Powerboat, Pontoon Boat, Wake Board/Water Ski Boat or Sailboat for as little as One Hour or for Multiple Days. The Ski Run Boat Company has the Largest and Safest fleet of boats on Lake Tahoe. This gives you and your party the chance to see destinations like Emerald Bay, Ski Beach, Sand Harbor and the Rubicon cliffs on your own schedule. You can bring a picnic lunch or stop by one of the many Restaurants around the Lake. All Boats come fully fueled and equipped with a VHF Radio and Coast Guard approved safety equipment and Life Vests. The Ski Run Boat Company also rents all the accessories you would need to make a great day of boating even better. Choose from Single or Double Tubes, Wakeboards Water Skis and More.

I was traveling with a bunch of friends and we made a decision that we wanted to rent a boat and explore the lake. This place is a short walk away from Heavenly which makes it super convenient. There were 11 of us total so we got a nice sized boat for ~2 hours to take on the lake. They... More

Took the kids (13 and 15) for their first parasail, and we had to join in, of course. This just ROCKED! The Captain and rigger were hilarious. They made the whole thing a riot. The helped take pictures. Helped my husband play a practical joke on my son and I, by making us think the boat lost power and we... More

Professional, efficient, great boat. The cost is high but worth it when you hear the giggles from the kids. Was windy but we rented the larger boat and had no trouble.

This is our third time using the Ski Run Boat Company for water sports. This year, on different days during the week, we rented paddle boards, sea doos and a boat w/ a wakeboard. The girls working the water toys were friendly and helpful. The only thing to remember is to ask what time it is they have you as... More

I can only speak to being on the Shark 2 boat for a para-sailing trip at the end of June. I called a few weeks before we were going to arrive in Tahoe to book our reservation. The person on the phone was nice and took down our information and explained what to do when we arrived. The day of... More

We have rented boats several times on our trips to Tahoe - my husband's family grew up on the lake - and they are a family of Boat Captains. So it is hard to go to Lake Tahoe and stay on shore! A variety of boat options through Ski Run - not an inexpensive venture, but that is understandable. Don't... More

Took out a 20 foot boat for an East Shore Tour and it was perfect! Mike was our staff member that readied us and the boat, he grew up there and had tons of good info and great service. Try it -you'll love it!!
