About

It is easy and surprisingly inexpensive to rent a Powerboat, Pontoon Boat, Wake Board/Water Ski Boat or Sailboat for as little as One Hour or for Multiple Days. The Ski Run Boat Company has the Largest and Safest fleet of boats on Lake Tahoe. This gives you and your party the chance to see destinations like Emerald Bay, Ski Beach, Sand Harbor and the Rubicon cliffs on your own schedule. You can bring a picnic lunch or stop by one of the many Restaurants around the Lake. All Boats come fully fueled and equipped with a VHF Radio and Coast Guard approved safety equipment and Life Vests. The Ski Run Boat Company also rents all the accessories you would need to make a great day of boating even better. Choose from Single or Double Tubes, Wakeboards Water Skis and More.

The lady behind the counter needs customer service training. The contract for boat rentals was done on a tablet. She was adamant about not clicking the done button after signing the agreement. I signed but when I lifted my finger off the screen the page disappeared. She was furious, insisting that I clicked the done button. Apparently, she does not know about technology glitches. I said you cannot tell me I clicked the button when I did not. The power hungry woman then refused to continue with the transaction. At that point I also did not want to do any business with her. However, as we are leaving she blurted out that we have to pay $50 for an inconvenience fee. We reentered the store and demanded that we do not owe them anything since she chose to cancel the transaction. She demanded we leave the store. They treatened many times to call the cops. It would have been very interesting to see what was her reason for the cops. She finally called the supervisor, George. George promised that our account would not be charged, lies. We were charged the full 1 hour rental, they never cancel the transaction.

Boat crew was awesome!!! So good with my kids. Felt safe and got us all excited for a fun time! The booking staff was matter-of-fact, but not rude. Prices are up there because they don't have any competition.

We rented a boat for 2 hours to get a different view of beautiful Lake Tahoe and enjoyed every minute of it. Connor was our instructor for the boat drivers and he was very pleasant and helpful.

How can you go to Lake Tahoe and not get out ON the lake. Renting this boat was worth every dollar spent. This was a family trip with parents and 3 older adult children. Everyone got to drive the boat around the lake which was a great experience. We went to Emerald Cove and boated around that....but I will add that was not what we felt was the best area; the best area was Rubicon Cove. What crystal clear light blue water. It didn't matter how cold it was, everyone went swimming. Magnificent. Renting the boat made for a fantastic afternoon. We felt check in went smoothly and the staff that teaches you the boat, takes you in and out of the maria were all fantastic. Whatever reason you came to Lake Tahoe, whether to hike, golf, gamble, etc. there is nothing like being out on and in the middle of that Lake.

Rude and racsit staff. Would not recommend if you are of any other ethnicity other than the majority. I was treated like a beggar and then went online and read all the racist reviews people have posted for them. Please read the response from the owener you will apalled by the response the owner has posted. Do not rent through them.

We had no prior reservation and were staying in North Lake Tahoe. We went to several boat rental places and was not able to get a boat to rent. They required booking several weeks in advance. Finally, we drove to South lake Tahoe, this place had many boats for rental available in the different sizes. They were courteous and friendly. They take care of you and take the boat out for you to the edge of open water. You can rent for two hours but can extend as much as you are enjoying the lake. When done, you can take the boat to the same place they took you at the edge of open water for pick up. They are cheaper than the other boat rentals. We enjoyed our day chip thoroughly. I recommend to visit Emerald Bay, take your lunch and Anchor there and enjoy the beauty of the lake. At minimum you need four hours for all the activities like tubing and enjoying the day.

Captain Mark and first mate Guillermo were excellent.

This was my first time ever and their professionalism and attentiveness were appreciated.

From the moment we first walked onboard, we felt at ease with their friendly demeanor and careful explanation of what was about to happen.

Once we were harnessed and life vested, we sat down for a nice and gentle takeoff from the back deck. The ascent was smooth and steady, as we took in the breathtaking (in a non-Seinfeld sense of the word) view of Lake Tahoe.

Before we know it, time was up and we were descending, but not before a fun and refreshing dip in the gorgeous blue water.

The landing was spot on with us standing on the back deck. After shedding the harness and life vest, we enjoyed the short ride back to the dock.

Given that I hate heights and cannot swim, I was pleasantly surprised by Mark and Guillermo expertise to put me at ease. I had a blast trying out this adventure, and I wouldn't have been able to had they been less than perfect.

Thank you for helping me with this new life experience! Keep up the excellent work.
