Rented from Bass Lake Boat Rentals. Even though it was a busy holiday weekend we were treated kindly and professionally- they were able to hook us up with a last minute pontoon boat cancellation. The boat boys ensure that you get in and out of the slips safely. The day on the lake was SO MUCH FUN on the pontoon boat, lunching, swimming and tubing. The little town is cute and there was a craft fair there to top it off after a day on the water. Would rent from here and spend a day here ANYDAY.

X- Large Luxury Pontoon was not a luxury. Old equipment, gauges not working, high idle, tricking ignition to coax into starting… our group tried to make the best of it, but our boat left us stranded on the lake. When we called for help employee wanted location, funny, no markers out on the lake. I could only give descriptions of buildings visible on shore and super load with all the engine noise from other boats so couldn’t hear. What you see on the photos here are not a reflection of what you get. Our bbq was small and located on outer perimeter, so it was getting wave washed by speed boats that were high speed driving in wrong direction of water highway rules we were given. The young adults employed here were trying to do their best… we finally got rescued from being pounded against the beach and we were given an hour refund and no gas charges…. But, next go ‘round renting at a bigger lake with better reviews and newer, well kept equipment .

Rented kayak through Bass Lake Water Sports, its convenient to Pine Lodge and outdoor restaurant. Rental process easy, make sure to bring your ID along with credit card. They do tack on an extra $5 for insurance, and charge tax on the rental as well as it's optional to tip. One hr kayak rental without tip was $38. A bit high but apparently the going rate. Had a nice time.

We had a great time on the lake in the rental boat. Check in was simple, the staff were outstanding and the fun was priceless. I highly recommend this rental place. All equipment was in great shape and zero issues. Definitely will do this again.

I am giving this company no stars!!! Awful, terrible, DO NOT RENT BOATS FROM THIS COMPANY!! Where do I start? My father in law, Rich, reserved a boat for our family two weeks ahead of time and spoke to Mike, then five days before our actual boat rental day of Monday, November 10, 2014 he spoke to Mike again to confirm our reservation. We got to the boat deck on 11/10/14 and Bass Lake Water Sports was closed. Our family was so upset, we had our fishing gear, lunches, kids were excited, weather was gorgeous and the stupid place was closed. We went to Duceys to ask around, we went everywhere and asked for the owner, Tommy he was no where to be found. We waited around until 11:00. We kept calling the number and you could hear the phone were the bait shop was, it was ringing. Other people were looking for the owner to open up the shop and they were calling the same number. The kids were crying, we were all upset, because they were not open, it ruined our entire day. It was the perfect day to fish and rent a boat and Bass Lake Water Sports destroyed any chance of having fun. Bottom line, don't ever rent a boat or do business with this company. I will be spreading the word and leaving reviews all over to make sure no one gets taken advantage of like us.

Reserved a house boat for the 4th of July months ago. I was quoted $300 for the deposit, by the OWNER of the company. I called to confirm the reservation and spoke with SARA (the manager) she proceeded to tell me that the deposit was $500 instead of the $300 I was quoted. She refused to honor the original quote and was very rude. Her excuse was "that's our deposit policy and I can't do anything about it!" I will never do business with this dishonest facility again. Furthermore, I'm filing complaints with the BBB, Consumer affairs etc. I'm a local here and also own a business. This is simply unacceptable.

We traveled as a family of four and were recommended to this activity by the excellent concierges at the Tenaya Lodge.

The staff at the rental company were incredibly swift and efficient and within 15 minutes of arriving we were on the water after watching the safety briefing and inspecting the boat.

We were fortunate that there was not a cloud in the sky and the lake was not that busy. The setting is spectacular and the boats are spacious and pretty powerful and able to reach speeds of 35 mph. They also have water skis and a banana boat.......such fun.

I would highly recommend this activity for a family or a small group. Even though you can take up to 10 people on the boat if you want to water ski I would only take a max of 6 people on board.

Please note that the fuel cost works out to about 50 cents per minute!

There are also more sedate boats if you want to spend longer on the lake and don't want to water ski.

My family and I just returned from a vacation to Bass Lake. We first visited Bass Lake Water Sports on Wednesday of this week (8/19). I was traveling with my 4 children, my girlfriend, and her 2 children. We wanted to rent a speed boat and take the kids tubing. We are not however experienced speed boat drivers and were not comfortable taking the kids out on our own. The owner of Bass Lake Water Sports, Tommy, said that he would work on getting us a driver so that we could enjoy our time. After a period of time, Tommy informed us that he was unable to get a driver because school was back on and there was a limited number of staff left for the summer. We understood, but were disappointed. My friend and I were lingering in the office deciding what we could do, when Tommy told us that he would do it so that the kids could get the experience. We preceded to hire him to take us out on a speed boat. What started as 2-hours turned into 5-hours because everyone was having such a fantastic time. A lot of that we due in large part to Tommy's personal commitment to customer service and how fun he made the afternoon for our families. We will absolutely refer our friends to Bass Lake Water Sports and will return there again for our rentals next summer. Thank you Tommy for helping to make our Bass Lake experience one our kids will never forget!

Reading reviews and agree this place is expensive... However they run a very good business. A 17 year old checked us in, young guys put us on the boat and then returning another group of young people checked us out. Each and every one were pleasant, professional and respectful. This business has hired and trained an impressive group of young adults. Hat's off to you. The lake is very small but beautiful even with the water being very low. We thoroughly enjoyed our day.

We are visitors from UK staying in Oakhurst for three nights. Arrived at 1300 to book a patio boat for the afternoon, told nothing available until 1600 so booked 1600-1800. Went away and returned at 1530, went through induction and directed to the pontoon to wait for our boat. Staff member took us to where our boat should have been, not there, no sign. Staff member apologised for late return by previous hirer and we were asked to return to pontoon to wait. Twenty minutes later, still no sign of boat so decided to cancel, no problem getting full refund. While I appreciate that late return of boats is not entirely under management control, there appeared little organisation on the pontoon, and no attempt to locate the missing boat. No-one kept us informed as to what was happening and we were left very disappointed at a wasted afternoon. One other point, the restrooms were disgusting, smelly and awash with urine. I researched several Bass Lake boat hire companies and decided to use this one as they were the cheapest, maybe now I know why.
