Boating in Big Bear
Big Bear Lake was made for boating. Well, actually, it was made to provide a reservoir of water or nearby agriculture, but it amounts to the same thing: a perfect place to sail, motor and splash. Southern California’s largest man made lake is seven miles long, 75 feet deep so it’s a great place to push the throttle or hoist the sail.
Climb aboard and get on the lake... Big Bear Lake
Launch your own boat from The Carol Morrison Public Launch at 41911 North Shore drive, just west of Stanfield or the Duane Boyer Public Launch at 38925 North Shore drive a mile and half west of Fawnskin.
Or, pick up a license then rent just about any type of water craft you can think of one of the half-dozen or so marinas that operate along the 22 miles of shoreline. Fishing tours, para sailing and on board weddings can be arranged from the marinas too.You can also climb aboard the steamship for a lake boat cruise.
If you're looking for a boating tour or a ship to rent for a party, you have to know about the Pirate Boat parties from Holloway Marina. They have a party boat that is full of fun and don't forget your costumes. If a more quite tour of the lake is more your style, check out the Big Bear Queen boat tour from Big Bear Marina. You'll get the old river boat feel at 7,000 ft. altitude.
