About
Sunnyside Marina has been in operation since the 1950’s and is one of the only certified Volvo Penta service centers on the lake. With newly expanded boat storage and service capabilities, our goal is to take any of the hassles out of boating. Let us fill your boat up with gas, clean it between uses, service any issues, activate/winterize, and store it during the off-season.

We rented a Cobalt ski boat for the day to take our son and his friends out for his 16th birthday. It was a below average experience. And to spend $1500 and have a less than great day- I just felt compelled to warn the next family. That's an expensive outing.
The boat wouldn't start soon after we set out. After telling us a number of times that the boat had to be in neutral to start, the person who came out to help us put it into gear and revved it to get it to turn over. She said the water is so cold and the boat is old and this sometimes happens. Yes, Lake Tahoe is cold. This felt like a flimsy explanation but ok. Off we went again. Just to then find out the wake board was too small for the boys. Another delay as we went back to the shore to get a new wakeboard. The boat did not have much horsepower and while the smaller boys popped right up on the wakeboard the larger boys, no matter how hard we tried, just didn't have enough power from the boat to stand up. So that was a bummer. The boys loved the innertube. But after a few rounds, it deflated. We were far enough away from at this point that is just didn't make sense to go back for a third time so that was the end of inner tubing.
The staff was very nice and responsive which we appreciated. But again- it is hard to stomach spending that kind of money for a day that never quite got off the ground. We want to rent a boat for the 4th of July but will be looking for a new company.

Incredible days (2 in separate outings) on Lake Tahoe. This competent and friendly group of young professionals did everything possible to make the days hassle free, so much fun and safe. The lake is extraordinarily gorgeous right now due to the massive snow in the mountains surrounding the lake on every side. The water is clear (you can see 77.8 ft below the surface according to the latest numbers I read) cold, but still can be played in, and blue, blue blue. Great to see the lake so healthy, it really should be a national treasure like our parks and monuments. GREAT time had by all. Highly recommend Sunnyside-then go eat lunch or dinner on the deck of the restaurant. And, don't forget to order the Hula pie for dessert.

The 22 foot cobalt Rigo cannot pull skiers. However, they rented us this boat, slalom, skis, and a wakeboard, and when we complained on return that the boat was not adequate, the girl who checked us actually admitted, it’s not meant to pull skiers!

I had lunch here and then walked out on the dock to look at the boats, but mostly to gaze at the beauty of Lake Tahoe. This is a lovely spot without much development, so perfect for enjoying the Lake views.

This is a small marina on the Lake where lucky folks park their boats. You can come here to take a look and also enjoy the splendid views of the Lake.

We rented a boat from Sunnyside and enjoyed our 4 hours. Although, the boat could have been cleaner on the inside. Seats and floor needed a good cleaning.

We rented jet skis for 2 hours and the experience was absolutely amazing. The staff is so friendly and kind. Matt the manager was such a help. We really enjoyed our experience and highly recommend this place to anyone looking to enjoy jet skis on the beautiful lake!
