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.

Cool off in the summer months with dip from the shore, cast a line to reel in a range of freshwater fish, let it rip on a jet ski or paddle the lake perimeter! 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.
