lake havasu boat rentals 1
Rent a Boat on Lake Havasu, AZLake Havasu, straddling the California-Arizona border, is a vast reservoir renowned for its 400 miles of shoreline and 60 miles of navigable water. Originating from the construction of the Parker Dam in 1938, the lake's allure surged with the establishment of Lake Havasu City in the 1960s. Drawing over a million visitors annually, the city, designed with tourism in mind and aided by Disneyland's primary developer C.V. Wood, boasts unique attractions, including the authentic London Bridge acquired from London in 1967. Comprising 10,276 granite blocks, the bridge spans the Bridgewater Channel, making Lake Havasu City Arizona's second most popular destination, second only to the Grand Canyon.Lake Havasu stands out as a boating paradise, offering diverse experiences from sandy beaches to remote campsites accessible only by boat. It hosts significant powerboat racing events, such as the Formula One Powerboat Championship and the Desert Storm Poker Run and Shootout, the largest performance boating event in the western United States. From luxury pontoon boats to sailboats, Lake Havasu's appeal extends beyond its unexpected desert setting, making it a thriving hub for boating activities.What to KnowWhatever type of boating activity gets you stoked you’ll have no problem finding the ideal watercraft on Lake Havasu. That said, the top picks generally include:
Pontoon boats are considered by many to be the ultimate lake boats for exploring, swimming, or just lounging around, as well as simple watersports like towing tubes or kneeboards. And it’s a tough pick to argue against considering that most are decked out with comfy seating, swim platforms, and stereo systems.
Speed boats will be the choice for thrill seekers. Nail the throttle and hold on tight!
Wakeboard boats are going to be the top option for those who want to enjoy some serious watersports. The best part? The surf’s up all the time, anytime.
Safety RequirementsBoater Education: While not required by the state of Arizona, taking a boater education course is encouraged. The Arizona Game & Fish Department lists several on their boating education webpage.Safety Gear: All boats must carry the safety gear required by the United States Coast Guard.

Things to do on Lake Havasu by boat
lake havasu beaches

Each has its own character and some are popular with watersports fans, others are ideal for getting away from the crowds, and there are some you can camp at overnight.Pro Tip: If you want to check out a beach with constant free entertainment consider visiting Body Beach. It’s a favorite practice-spot for pro PWC riders.Location: Google Maps LinkClosest marina or docks: Lake Havasu MarinaLat/Long:34.459217 x 114.335869
small mouth bass fishing
Go FishingIf you enjoy casting a line note that Lake Havasu has been ranked among the top 100 bass lakes by Bassmaster Magazine. It has a strong population of largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and landlocked striped bass, and holds Arizona state records for several species including smallmouth bass and black crappie.Pro Tip: If largemouth bass are the target look for pockets and mini-coves in the rocky shoreline, and try tossing topwater lures early in the morning or at sunset. When the sun is high in the sky transition to drop-offs and deeper areas and use diving crankbaits, spoons, and other lures that can go deep.Location: Google Maps LinkClosest marina or docks: Lake Havasu MarinaLat/Long: 34.461157 x 114.350891
scuba diving lake havasu
Go Scuba DivingLake Havasu has excellent visibility, ranging from 10 to 50 feet depending on the time of year and weather conditions. It also features a number of surprising attractions, like sunken planes, shipwrecks, and a diverse range of items dropped from boats on the surface.Pro Tip: Divers have plenty of options, but one big attraction is “Miller’s Folly,” a 60-foot double-decker paddlewheel wreck in 25 feet of water. The boat was said to have been built out of spare parts and donated materials in a mere 53 days, in the late 1960s. We’d question the lore, but then again, it did sink.Location: Google Maps LinkClosest marina or docks: Site Six Launch RampLat/Long: 34.444183 x 114.366249
