Big Bear Lake has it all...paddle boarding, pontoon boating, wake boarding, water skiing, inner tubing, jet skiing and kayaking! Boats, equipment and water sports lessons can be rented or booked at any one of six marinas that dot the lake's 23 miles of shoreline. Marinas are open for the spring, summer and autumn seasons. The lake is the number one attraction in the summer and attracts water enthusiasts of all sorts!

Anglers enjoy casting a line to catch a range of freshwater fish. Wake boarders and water skiers love 'letting it rip' behind a high speed sporting boat. Jet skiers live for crashing through the waves and bumps. And, of course, kayaking and paddle boarding are always favorites! Find your love for the lake when you book your Big Bear getaway!

All privately watercraft (including non-motorized types) must display permits. They can be purchased at any marina.
