About Us

North Lake Tahoe Boat Rental

Our mission is to make it possible for everyone to get in a boat on the beautiful lake. We offer a variety of boats and prices to accommodate everyone while still providing a superior customer service experience everyone deserves.

Our Story

This company started with a passion for being on the water and wanting others to experience the same feeling. We had come to the realization that there are too many people out there that don’t have the ability to get out on Lake Tahoe. We’re here to fix that, we want as many people as possible to share in our passion.

Why We Are Different

Unlike most places on the lake, we will not nickel and dime you. No fees, no hidden charges, just one flat rate, that’s it. We know you are here to have a good time and we don’t want to stop you from doing that. You’re on Tahoe Time, so there’s no rushing back and it’s ok if you’re five minutes late.

Owner & Captain

Mike & Rufus

Hi guys, I’m Mike Crow, the owner of NLTBR. I grew up in the north east and moved to CA from Vermont after college on a whim. I sold everything I owned, bought a 89’ camper-van and started driving West. I reached Truckee, CA and instantly knew I found a place to call home. Tahoe has everything I need in my own backyard, from snowboarding on the mountains to wake surfing on the lake. I always look forward to being able to show others the adventures, beauty and fun Tahoe has to offer!

Operations Manager & Captain


Hi, I’m Connor Bishop and I am from Folsom, CA. I moved to the Reno/Tahoe area in 2016 and graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno in 2020. This is my third year with NLTBR. I love Lake Tahoe for snowboarding, hiking, cliff jumping, and especially boating. I am excited to show you around the lake and share my experience with you!

I’m Jesse Valenti, I grew up in orange county, NY, attended Utica College and graduated in 2014. In May 2017, I went seeking adventure and ended up in the Outer Banks North Carolina as a hang gliding instructor. That winter I was introduced to Tahoe’s magic.
