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!!

Just walked in and decided to sign up since there was a boat leaving in 10 minutes. It was great!! During the summer, they seem to have a parasail boat leaving on each hour. The boat is pretty small and takes about 8-10 people. The whole thing takes about an hour and each person or couple has about 7-8 minutes... More

Ski Run is right near Riva Grill and some other nice little shops to visit while in Tahoe. We decided to take a boat ride and rented an 18' boat. Price wasn't too bad I figured with the liability that comes with renting boats. The Lake was supposed to be flat with 6mph wind but once again the weather people... More

We hired a 7 seat boat for half a day and took to the lake ourselves. The check in experience was painless and we were given a good introduction to the boat. We set out on the lake with no issues and found the boat easy to use. We even braved entering into Emerald Bay making sure we followed the... More

We were on Shark 1 for our recent parasailing adventure and we did two tandem rides with our children aged 10 and 12 who like us loved this. The guys on the boat were excellent offering great advice and really going the extra mile in making the trip a great memory. They clearly love their jobs even at 9.30 on... More

We rented a power boat - got there around 9:15am and quickly checked in, without a reservation. Their staff helped us out of and back into the marina, so that made things much easier. The boat is clean and in great shape. You do have to pay for the fuel (~$100 for our a little over 3 hours drive, but... More
