    About Lake Minnetonka

    The only time to visit Lake Minnetonka is during the summer and early autumn months. Winter in Minnesota is brutal and the lake is completely frozen - so no boat rentals during this season. If you visit during the summer and rent a boat, make sure you bring plenty of food and drinks on board for a picnic while cruising. There are supermarkets in all the major towns around Lake Minnetonka to stock up like Lunds, Aldi, and Trader Joe’s.

    The weather in the summer is mostly warm and pleasant, but always check the forecast as storms can occur during these months and it can become dangerous to be on the lake. The water is usually warm enough to swim in from mid-June through September. The water is safe for swimming, but be aware that there are lots of weeds in the lake.

      Fall Colors Special- 2 hr minimum w/ reduced rate! Spacious & Smooth 30 ft JCTritoon on Lake Minnetonka

      I had an amazing time renting from Katrina! They are super professional, great with communication, understanding, and honestly want you to have a great time! I'd recommend Katrina to all my friends and family. If I was coming back to wayzata, I'd rent from her again! She made my birthday celebration one to remember!

      19' Larson LXI Open Bow for 9 Person for rent

      Had a great experience with Captain Ron! Communication prior to the trip was great and orientation to the boat was smooth. Boat was great and ran perfect. Captain Ron even had a very nice gift bag for our group. I would happily rent another boat from him in the future.

      Glastron 8 Passenger Open Bow for rent

      Captain Ron's service is second to none. He is friendly and has a passion for what he does. He confirms your appointment the day before, sends a map link to his location, and meets you at the launch with keys in hand. Simply drive off from the dock to enjoy the lake and walk off when you return. We plan to return in the future!
