At the boat rental shop in South Lake Tahoe, you’ll receive a safety briefing about boating on Lake Tahoe and a lesson on how to operate your power boat. When you’re ready, hop in with your family or friends to begin your 1-hour, 4-hour or 8-hour adventure on the lake, depending on 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.
