    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.

      It was my first time being on the water and I did not know what to expect. Our captain Ryan was absolutely amazing. He was patient enough to wait for every one of us to arrive, friendly with the kids and he made us all smile. It was just a fantastic ride, and everyone had a blast!

      Stylish wake surf boat on Lake Minnetonka!

      Very nice boat, you certainly get more than what you pay for. He called day off to get an idea of what water activities we wished to do that day. He came on time with several wakeboard and wakesurf boards which we used throughout the day. We had a bit of a chilly day but we frequently utilized his heated vents to warm up coming out of the water. Insanely nice boat with such fun wake surf settings to create such smooth riding conditions. Cooler on board, we brought our own drinks and transferred them over. Plenty of room for our group of 9.

      We had a fantastic day on the lake with James. He went out of his way to make sure the day was what we wanted and was a fantastic host. The boat itself is top notch. I highly recommend this experience!

      26' Captained Open Bow Chaparral for Summer Fun on Lake Minnetonka

      Greg and Katie were great. Greg answered all my questions quickly and arrived right on time for pick up. Katie kept our drinks filled, both made sure we had a fun day and were fun to be around. The boat was bigger and nicer than we expected from the listing. It was well maintained and very clean. We had 10 adults and all fit comfortably. I would recommend renting from Greg and will use him again next time we’re in the area.
