Experience Lake Tahoe to the fullest with your own power boat rental from South Lake Tahoe. With a group of family or friends, you can explore the lake at your leisure, cruising to scenic spots like Meeks Bay or Emerald Bay. Use the boat for water sports like skiing or wakeboarding, or just soak up the sun in a peaceful cove. Select a 1-hour, 4-hour or 8-hour time period, as well as the type of boat that best suits your group.
What to Expect
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.

A great place to rent boat in Tahoe

Everyone at this place is nice and helpful. The boat is in good condition. They charged a reasonable price for renting and fuel expense. I strongly recommend this place.
