What to know about hiring a boat in South Lake Tahoe

Boating is (without contest) the most popular lake activity during the summer months, and this expansive watery playground plays host to a myriad of boating activities such as sailboat regattas and even one of the country’s leading wooden boat shows — the South Lake Tahoe Concours d’Elegance, which takes place every August. Boating culture reigns supreme for as long as the weather permits, and powerboats and jet skis dart across the water along with picturesque sailing vessels. For even more hire options be sure to look at all of Lake Tahoe for the most ideal location to start your boating adventure.

Boaters often partake in watersports as well, which range from the relaxing (such as kayaking to the exhilarating (such as parasailing, water skiing, and wakeboarding). Given the extreme depths of Lake Tahoe, scuba diving has also become a popular pastime, and can allow the adventurous to experience this beautiful lake in a unique way. Fishing and boating often go hand in hand, and Lake Tahoe has plenty of specimens to tempt any fisherman, from large and smallmouth bass and at least three different varieties of trout, to bluegill, sockeye salmon, and more.

About South Lake Tahoe

Nestled between the borders of California and Nevada in the scenic Sierra Nevada lays one of the largest and most well-known lakes in the United States — the stunning Lake Tahoe. Its high altitude and ski resorts make it a popular winter destination, but boaters will delight in the lake’s many charms during the late spring to early fall seasons. Lake Tahoe’s varied landscapes, beautiful beaches, and deep bays make it a boater’s paradise that thousands flock to each year as soon as the snow begins to thaw.

    Michelle was extremely easy to deal with, she actually gave us a bigger boat than we rented for the same price! The value was fantastic, and the boat came with a wakeboard as well as a tube. She was very flexible in the return process as well which made the experience even better. She also made suggestions on where to go, as well as provided guidance on how to download a map to help out while we were out on the water. I would recommend her for anyone looking for a good deal, a great boat, and a flexible helpful owner.

    Boat was amazing! Michelle and Heather were timely, professional, funny, and offered great suggestions for our time on Tahoe. Water a little choppy at end of the day but the boat handled wonderfully... very smooth ride! Boat pulled kids on tube with no problem. Great sound system too!

    I had a great experience renting from James. Communication leading up to the rental date was easy. The boat was as expected (great boat) and the return and finalization of the transaction was a simple process. All in all, a great experience.

    Michelle’s boat was perfect for our group: four adults, a toddler and two dogs. Pick up and drop off were seamless and we were able to communicate any and all questions with immediate response. We had a perfect day!
