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.

Everybody from the Girls(Sam and Carey)we dealt with from the minute we got to Ski Run Boat Company to upper management including John the manager @ the dock are the rudest & most unprofessional group of people we have ever come across in a business setting!

I rented a boat for 4 hours and had a great time! Everyone was really nice. Carey helped us in the office and recommended a great boat for the family. Mike helped us on the docks and made what would normally be a tedious check out process a lot of fun! Getting to see Emerald Bay from the water was... More

We rented a class A boat for about 4.5 hours and had more fun than anything else we did during our week-long stay in Tahoe. The staff is awesome. We've driven boats before but they were very thorough in their prep before you go out so a complete newbie would be 100% comfortable being their own boat captain for the... More

Beware of SCAM to get you to pay EXTRA MONEY!!! I rented the jet-ski from Ski Run Boat Company. It looked like a nice place to rent from and enjoy some time on the lake with my 5 year old son. Unfortunately, once we got out onto the water about 5 yards from the dock my son expressed his fear... More

Rented a boat for a half day. Easy check in and pleasant staff. Rented waterskis for an additional fee. Boat and skis have seen better days. Some general wear and tear on both but nothing that hindered our experience. FYI-parking was not included and was 22$ cash for 4 hours. We had a very good experience with the company.

had a great time exploring the lake on 2 rented jet skis... unfortunately upon return to the beach we were wrongfully accused of crashing my husband's jet ski. The young man working at the place was very rude, talked over us and kept repeating himself over and over again about how we crashed the ski. In actuality the damage was... More
