Houseboat Rentals

About Us

The houseboating capital of the world, and well known as one of the best recreational lakes in the nation, Shasta Lake is the ideal place for your luxury house boat vacation. This magnificent body of water, with over 360 miles of shoreline, is the best that Mother Nature has to offer. Shrouded by the massive Shasta Trinity National Forest, Shasta Lake is home to over 20 species of fish, black tailed mule deer, bald eagle, osprey, ring tailed cat, California black bear, and a host of other wildlife.
Summer days are very warm and sunny with high temperatures averaging nearly 100 degrees. Shasta Lake is primarily fed by rainfall, not snowmelt, making for very comfortable water temperatures – a heavenly 78-degree average in the summer months. For optimal fishing and wildlife viewing, come to Shasta in the spring. The lake is at its highest level, and the fish are as abundant as the photo opportunities. Fall welcomes Indian Summer weather, comfortably warm days, and cooler nights.
Whether it’s skiing, swimming, fishing, hiking, relaxing or spending quality time with your family and friends, you’ll find it on Shasta Lake

We offer rentals of house boats, ski boats, patio boats, fishing boats, and more. We also provide a marina store, marine service, and marine fuel.

“When serving as California’s state tourism director, I was asked by a national travel magazine what was my favorite vacation. When I called Joan and asked her, she replied without hesitation, “houseboating at Shasta.” What she loved about it was the absolutely care-free time we enjoyed with family and friends. Her mother, sister and brother had joined us with their children on one big houseboat (whose costs we shared). During the day, we’d cruise slowly, letting the kids steer as we supervised. They loved the authority it gave them. Out there on the lake, they grew in confidence, learning responsibility. Or, we’d drift, reading, sunning, playing games, fishing or chatting while the kids would slide down the water slide or jet ski. For adventure we’d pull into a cove and hike to an abandoned mining town or visit the Shasta Caverns or Shasta Dam. You ate when you wanted to eat. Each of us took our turn cooking, and all tried to outdo one another with their culinary prowess… even the kids got into that. It was always an adventure anchoring the boat to shore after someone had spotted the perfect cove (it always seemed someone else got to the one we wanted, but then we would cruise a bit further and find a better anchorage). We’d tie up the boat with its stern toward the sunset and sit atop it as we enjoyed a cocktail and watched the sky and lake change color. When the stars came out, we line danced on the top of the boat, laughing and enjoying the disgust that our teenagers had for our nerdiness. Then, they joined in. There were no restaurant prices to pay (though a few surround the lake), no timetable, but mostly it was being together in a beautiful place with people we loved, having simple fun together.” John Poimiroo, former director State of California Travel & Tourism Commission --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
