Boat hire Lake Tahoe with or without skipper

Hire a boat with or without a skipper in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is one of the prettiest places in California. At the border with the state of Nevada, you will find a huge lake at high altitudes. Lake Tahoe’s water is one of the purest and cleanest in the world. If you’re in California and are looking for an adventure, head to Lake Tahoe and explore its shorelines on a multiple-day adventure. With crystal clear water and mesmerising beaches and bays, Lake Tahoe is a great place to hire a boat. Whether you want to have an adrenaline-pumping holiday or relax under the California sun, this lake has everything you need to have a great vacation.

Best time to hire a boat in Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe has great weather all year round. With incredible mountain peaks surrounding the lake, it becomes a ski resort during the winter.

The highest temperatures are in July and August during the summer. This is also the time when tourists like to visit the lake, this is why it can get quite uncomfortable with crowded beaches and less availability.

We strongly recommend visiting Lake Tahoe in spring or fall. For instance, the months of April and May host great weather with warm temperatures and a lot fewer tourists making your holidays much more relaxing.

Prices and information for yacht hire in Lake Tahoe

The prices for boat hire in Lake Tahoe really depend on the type and size of the boat that you want to hire. 

If you plan on coming to the lake during the high season, we suggest that you hire a boat well in advance as prices can get quite expensive with higher demand in summer.

Do you need a licence to hire a boat in Lake Tahoe?

Yes, you will need to have a California Boater Card in order to operate a vessel in Lake Tahoe. If you don’t have a licence, you can still hire a boat with a skipper. A skipper will captain the boat and show you the best places around the lake.
