  1. The best, safest, and most extensive north lake Tahoe boat rentals in Lake Tahoe is Sunnyside Marina. From a boat, there's no better way to view Lake Tahoe. Enjoy a day on the river, sightseeing and viewing the sights. Our powerboat rentals are fully fuelled and include a VHF radio as well as Coast Guard-approved safety equipment.
