What to know about renting 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 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 rental 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.

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.

GetMyBoat customer reviews for boat rentals in South Lake Tahoe.
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!
Awesome experience for the whole family. Nick was solid in all aspects, communication, timing, explaining boat functions. The boat was top notch, awesome wake surfing behind this beauty. The boat was easy to operate and we have awesome videos using it.
Nick was an awesome host. His brother Andrew met us at the launch ramp. Had the life vest. Tanks were full; we had the rental for 8 hours and didn’t even use all the gas. Paid him cash to refill outside the launch ramp. I would definitely rent from him again!
James was a great captain and his boat was perfect for our group trip and allowed us to wakeboard as well as grill and cruise around the lake. He was very helpful, chill, and flexible as well. Would highly recommend him and his boat!
My family and I had a great time on James’ boat. There was only 6 of us, so it was very spacious for our group. We rented it for a half day and loved the provided amenities, including the wakesurf board and inner tube. He was quick to respond to any questions I had and was easy to coordinate the logistics with, like where to pick up and drop off the boat. I would highly recommend James and his boat for a fun day out on the lake!
Michelle’s boat worked great all week. She was easy to work with and made the rental experience seamless! Her boat was a lot of fun and had everything we needed. We highly recommend it!
