California— the nationally renowned “Golden State”— is located on the West Coast of the United States. This state is beloved by many travelers and residents because of its beautiful coastline along the Pacific Ocean, which makes it the perfect place to enjoy boating and other ocean activities.
Northern California conjures images of towering redwood forests and breathtaking stretches of coastline in the minds of many, but it is also one of the world’s premier fishing destinations. Its numerous rivers, lakes, and bays provide plenty of ripe territory for fishermen to explore. If you’re not into fishing, there are plenty of options for you to explore the Northern coastline of California too. Sailing, boating, and watersports all have their place on the water in California and beyond, and there are cities that can help you make the best choice on your next boating trip. Try visiting San Francisco, Sacramento, Lake Tahoe, Redding, and Emeryville.
Southern California is one of the most desired vacation destinations in the world. In addition to the appeal of multiple amusement parks, vibrant culture, and the legendary town of Hollywood, the beautiful Pacific Ocean is one of the primary reasons Southern California tops the lists of travelers from all over the globe. Boating is the best way to experience the stunning Pacific coastline, and it’s no surprise that Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego County are appealing to boaters and tourists alike.
Interested in freshwater activities? There are endless inlets, marinas, docks, state parks, and beaches to experience and enjoy.

There are so many options to select from, so book a boat rental in California and see what the West Coast has to offer!
They do not say “West Coast, Best Coast” for nothing. From the shores of the Pacific Ocean to the Great Salt Lake and the bed of the Colorado River, the West Coast of the United States has a lot to offer in the way of water. The Oregon Trail and Gold Rush of 1850 may have populated the region, but today the abundance of natural wonders and water resources have tourists and locals alike praising the land. California’s most popular destinations are often coastal, such as San Francisco, San Diego, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Monterey.
This was one of the best experiences I have ever had/ planned for my birthday. The boat was clean and big, and the floating lily pad was such a huge plus. There were ten of us on the boat and while it was tight in the kitchen area (as expected) there was PLENTY of room everywhere else. The captain was super nice and checked in with me to make sure we were doing what everyone wanted. I would do this again, every year for my birthday hands down. I am an over-planner and was messaging Craig a lot and he never made me feel like I was bothering him and he answered every single one of my questions-- which is huge when you are planning an event for a large group. Communication was A+. If you want to have fun on the water I highly suggest checking out Craig and his services-- You won't regret it!!!
We rented the boat from Jason on June 21, 2022. It happened to be the first day of summer and we lucked out on the weather. It was a beautiful day. We also lucked out on having Jason captain the boat. He gave us a great tour of the entire lake. We rented the boat for the whole day and we were glad we did. We stopped at several spots that were secluded and pristine. Spots we would have never thought to explore, but we were glad Jason took us there. The boat was clean and well maintained. He kindly brought us a cooler with ice for our lunch and drinks. We felt like we were catching up with an old friend. What a delightful experience with Jason. We highly recommend renting from him.
My husband and I had a great time celebrating our joint 30th birthday party aboard the Journey. There were plenty of places to sit, and it was wonderful having inside and outside options for hanging out. All of the communication leading up to our departure was incredibly friendly and helpful! The crew members were all so fun and offered amazing customer service to us and our guests. Boarding, setting up our food, and connecting our music was SO EASY. We felt totally taken care of for the whole event. Thank you!!!
We had a great time with Jason and in the lake yesterday. Despite having an exhausting day as soon as we started our journey we were completed refreshed by the beauty of the lake and especially the spots Jason recommended to jump into the clear water. Since we went out in the evening, Jason hung out with us a little longer till sunset and we got to see beautiful pink skies. Jason himself was super fun - jammed to bollywood musin with us and gave us great recs for other things to do in Tahoe as well. I will definitely be coming back here with my friends.
Mark is a wonderful Captain! It was one of the best experiences at sea I've ever had. He's very clearly communicative from the start of process to finish - easy instructions to the boat and parking, and a natural instructor on the boat. He's a seasoned sailor, who knows so much sailing. He's very charming and a pleasure to spend time with. Welcoming and puts everyone around him at ease. What a joy! Thank you Mark, I will back on board with you soon, Captain!
Thank you so much Ron for an incredible day, you are a true master of the water and you know what you’re doing. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone. Love that you love dogs, especially our dogs. Ron made sure we were safe and threw a few good jokes here and there. Went cliff jumping, through the narrows, to sandy beaches and more. A family man who knows the lake like the back of his hand, with proper boating etiquette. Give this man a raise!!!!!
