Nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake known for its beaches and endless boating opportunities. While this destination is a haven for skiers and snowboarders in the winter, it turns into an endless summer paradise as soon as the snow begins to melt. Straddling the state line between California and Nevada, Lake Tahoe is the largest Alpine lake and second deepest lake in North America. So whether you’re looking to hop aboard a pontoon and take in that endless California sun from the boat or hoping to go jet skiing in Emerald Bay with your friends, there’s endless fun for the entire crew with the perfect boat rental in Lake Tahoe.
Ever flown down the water in a motorcycle on water? Well, with the right jet ski that’s exactly what you’ll experience. At top speeds, you can head over to Emerald Bay, a section of the lake that is nestled right up against Emerald Bay State Park. From here, you can view all of the spectacular wildlife the park has to offer from the water and can even go for a nice swim with your buddies. With a view like that, it’s time to pull out the shades and let the sun provide you with a nice tan.
As the only island in Lake Tahoe, Fannette Island is accessible by boat, kayak, or canoe which makes it the perfect place to dock up your jet ski and explore. On the island, you will find the ruins of a small building which used to be a tea house. Known for its history, the island was home to a mysterious captain named Dick Barter who moved to the island in 1863 where he built his own chapel and lived for more than ten years. The island is also home to many pine trees and makes for a great place to stop and enjoy a packed lunch.
Since Lake Tahoe stretches through both California and Nevada, now is your chance to cross state lines on the water! From Fannette Island, you can head over to Zephyr Cove on the east shore of Lake Tahoe. With your Lake Tahoe boat rental, you can explore Zephyr Cove’s sandy white beaches and even dock up at the nearby sandbar. From the sandbar, you can hang out with the locals and even take a little power nap on the beach. From here, you can go swimming or glide around the water on your jet ski while taking in the azure expanse of the lake.
