Boating from South Lake Tahoe

If you are interested in boating while at South Lake Tahoe there are a few options.


Ski Run Marina is close to town, and various resorts (Like Lakeland Resort) and allows for rental of Jet Ski’s, and Boats. Expect to pay a few hundred dollars for most rentals, depending on the size of the boat and the amount of time rented.


Once your boat is inspected, you’ll need to put in at a Marina. The only licensed put in in South Lake Tahoe is private “Tahoe Keys” Marina, they charge around $50 for put in (in and out) and $20 for parking trailer and vehicle. Make sure to check the hours for pulling boat out as they normally close a while before sundown for take out.

Tahoe Keys also offers boat rentals (I believe) but you’ll have to call to book.


Make sure to follow all boating regulations, and have a great time enjoying beautiful Lake Tahoe!
