“Boats On Tahoe Owner Renting Boats in Tahoe since 2013”
Aboard since 2016
From Tahoe City, CA
After talking to a few rental boat companies we decided to go with Rafid for our family day on the lake. Rafid was very responsive and helpful, the process was easy and the boat was in great shape. Our next trip to Tahoe we will be renting from Rafid again.
This was such an awesome experience. The owner Rafid even made me aware of the strong wind advisory. We contacted him at almost 11:00 pm through messenger and he immediately responded an had us setup and ready to go by 11:20. This was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had when renting recreational vehicles. If you’re looking for a good time and someone to take the time to teach you, this is definitely the man to use!!!!!
Rafid is really great to work with. He's prompt, super communicative and is transparent about the whole boat rental process. We were lucky to find him as the prices were very competitive and he makes things super easy. He even sets things up such that you don't have to pay marina prices to refill gas on the boat, he lets you do that at a normal gas station . Boat was also great for our group, no issues operating. Couldn't be happier about the experience
The boat owner, Rafid, is very easy to work with and he stays in communication without delay. We shopped many charter services on Lake Tahoe and Rafid's boats represent the best combination of value (lowest daily price) and quality. His boats are well maintained and outfitted with tube, skis and wakeboards. We will charter one of his boats again.
We had a fabulous day on the lake yesterday thanks to Rafid. We did a full day rental with 6 people and it was perfect. Rafid was extremely responsive and professional. He was personable and made sure we had everything we needed for a great day. We have rented boats on Lake Tahoe for years and this was by far our best experience. Thank you Rafid!!
This was my second time renting a boat from Rafid and he continues to provide excellent service. He is very thorough explaining all the equipment and how to operate it. He provides maps of the different beaches on the lake. The boat was clean and ran great. The tubing was the highlight of the trip. He was on time both picking up and dropping off the boat. I would highly recommend renting a boat from Rafid when visiting Lake Tahoe.
Rafid was awesome to work with and very accommodating. We did a thorough walk-through of the boat and its operations before he sent us on our way. Boat was nice and clean, and handled the lake very well - could use an upgrade to the speaker system on the boat as some speakers sounded blown, and the AUX connection was not working at the time of our rental. We didn't use the wakeboard or skis, but the tube was in great condition and easily fit 2 adults. I really appreciated Rafid's organization, from the time we booked the rental, through the neatly stowed ropes, life jackets, etc. on the boat. I would absolutely rent from Rafid again.
This was our second year renting from Rafid for the trans Tahoe relay. He's extremely helpful and prompt. When rafid says he will be there at 5:42, count on it. We have rented the red and yellow boats. The yellow is a bit nicer, but both are fit for purpose and easy to handle. Highly recommend. This will be year 3 and counting for us.
Renting a boat from Rafid was easy and worry-free for our family boating trip on Lake Tahoe (5 adults, 2 children). His communication prior to the rental was excellent. His instructions were organized and helpful, everything was as described. He answered all of our questions. We arranged to meet him at a parking lot in Tahoe City, and went over the operation of the boat and the equipment on it, completed paperwork, then followed him and the trailered boat to a nearby boat launch where he launched us for a full day of fun on the water. We used the skis and the tube and the sound system (can connect your phone with jack provided). The seating and layout of the boat was very comfortable, and we appreciated the bimini top when the sun got hot. He had lifejackets for all including proper size for the little ones. We started with a full tank of gas which was way more than we could use in a day. He gave us some good advice on a place we were planning to boat to. The boat was in good shape and ran well. When we were done we met him at the ramp as planned and he pulled the boat out. We then followed him and the trailered boat to a gas station and filled up the tank (which is much cheaper than buying gas at a marina). The whole experience was seamless and easy, It was "luxury boating" in that there was really no work for us to do except drive around in the boat (if you have ever owned a boat you know what I mean)--he did the trailering, launching, cleaning, fueling, etc. and was available by phone for any potential problems (there were none). I would definitely rent from him again!
What an amazing experience. Rafid was a true professional and took the time to explain all the ins and outs of operating his boat. The boat had more than enough power, was well maintained and was an all around joy to operate. He provided maps of the lake as well as were to swim and dine if we wanted.The tub was a huge plus and added to the fun. I would highly recommend renting any boat from Rafid. He was on time both picking the boat up as well as dropping it off.
Everything about this rental was seamless and easy. Rafid was very friendly and clear in all of his instructions. We had a great day on the lake tubing, water skiing, and wakeboarding. The boat was in great condition and not difficult to function. We felt very safe with all of Rafid's instructions and appreciate that he was available for any questions we had on the day of the rental.
I would definitely rent from him again!
No issues at all. The boat was exactly as expected. Reservation was simple and the price was fair. Rafid was great. Easy to get in touch with by phone, responded quickly to emails, and very flexible with pickup time as long as you don't try to spring a last minute change on him. I wouldn't hesitate to rent from him again or recommend him to friends.
Great operator! Our boat was in excellent condition and was exactly what we needed for a fun time on the lake. Rafid was easy to communicate with and had a relaxed demeanor that helped keep things mellow. Looking forward to renting from him again in the future.
Boats on Tahoe is the best kept secret for boat rentals in Tahoe. I've rented on multiple occasions, for multiple days and have always been extremely happy. The owner is responsive, clearly communicates and provides quality equipment at a great price. I highly recommend this group.
