WHAT ABOUT A TIP?

Pricing does not include gratuity for Captains or Dockhands. IF they provided you with above and beyond service, Its a great way to show your appreciation for their work.

WHAT'S YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

Decided you don’t want to rent? If you cancel 7 days or more before your trip you will receive a refund (Minus NON-REFUNDABLE booking fee). Within 7 days we will refund 50% or schedule you for another day.

In the event of bad weather NLTBR reserves the right to reschedule. Tahoe is a massive lake, there are no refunds because it is a little wavy. Safety is our priority and we will not let you go out if NLTBR does not deem it safe. This is solely NLTBR’s decision and will not be canceled until the DAY OF your rental.

DO YOU OFFER DISCOUNTS?

Please call or email for weekly discount 5 FULL days or more (Applies to full day rentals ONLY). We CANNOT discount our half day rentals even if you book 50 of them. We already have our prices as low as possible to allow as many people to be able to enjoy the lake without a price barrier.

DO RENTAL PRICES INCLUDE FUEL?

Rental prices include your first 15 Gallons of fuels.  Renter pays for additional fuel in excess of complimentary 15 gallons.

DO YOU ALLOW WATERSPORTS?

We do not allow Skiing, Wakeboarding or Surfing behind our boats. This means, no you cannot bring your own either.

We provide a TUBE for FREE upon request.  

DO I NEED A BOATING LICENSE?

No, It is not required. We do recommend getting your CA Boaters Safety card for an optimal time out on the water.

CA BOATERS CARD

We will give you a safety and operation briefing before every rental! We want to make sure you are comfortable before leaving the dock.

CAN I GO TO A RESTAURANT OR SHORE DURING MY RENTAL?

We do not allow renters to dock or beach the boat at any point during the rental. There are too many expensive boats and tricky maneuvers to pull into tight spots for us to allow you to pull up to the on the water restaurants. If this is something you would like to do you can hire one of our captains!
Beaching the boat IS NOT ALLOWED! You will be fined $500 if excessive sand is in the boat. The only way that can happen is if you beached the boat or brought it to a dock.
