Teaching You To Ride Like A Champ! Open seasonally.

Summary

Features: SWA Watersports gives you awesome instruction that will prepare you to take on Lake Tahoe's addicting waves. Lake Tahoe SWA Watersports teaches you the ways of wakesurfing, wakeboarding, wakeskating and tubing. Whether you want to ride their wake or just do some touring, their friendly, highly experienced U.S. Coast Guard licensed drivers and instructors will make your experience on Big Blue undoubtedly memorable. All our drivers are also first aid and CPR certified.

Why We Go: SWA Watersports Lake Tahoe puts the adventure into your vacation. Lake Tahoe visitors who want to live on the edge will love trying these exciting water sports.

  • Catch The Wake: Whether you live to ride water or just like the idea of boating on it, they've got the boat and water sport for you. Their top of the line 28’ Mastercraft X-80s are not only the largest wake boats offered on Lake Tahoe, buy they also kick up an unmatched wake. Customers of all ages and experience levels can enjoy the best of both worlds here — wakesurfing, wakeboarding, wakeskating and tubing while enjoying the majestic backdrop of Lake Tahoe. So what’s keeping you? Grab your board shorts and hop aboard. They'll supply the captain/instructor, fuel, gear and the Tahoe scenery. If you have ever wanted to surf Lake Tahoe, now is your chance.
  • Rental Boats & VIP Service: When renting one of their premium powerboats, they'll make sure your rental experience is safe and memorable. There is no better way to relax and take in Tahoe’s shear beauty than from the water's perspective. They guarantee a well-maintained, clean and dependable vessel equipped with all required USCG approved safety equipment. Their rental boats range from 20 to 28 feet with passenger capacities ranging from six to twelve. Fuel is included in our prices (no hidden fees here) so your boat will come fully fueled to make your experience that much more worry free and enjoyable! Not sure about operating your own vessel? Inquire about our VIP Service.
  • Sightseeing Tours & Private Charters: Lake Tahoe is North America's largest and most beautiful alpine lake. It has roughly 72 miles of the most pristine scenic shoreline you can imagine. So come join SWA Watersports for one of their guided sightseeing tours or private charters where you’ll be taken to historic sites such as the Thunderbird Lodge and the "Tea House" in Emerald Bay, or take a peek at the lakefront mansions of the rich and famous. These guided tours all offer a  truly unique water's perspective. Wrap one of these tours together with water sports and tubing, and even visit one of Tahoe's legendary lakefront restaurants and watering holes! Book early for holidays and special events, which may include birthday and wedding parties, photo and sunset tours, on-water picnics, or any other group style outing on beautiful Lake Tahoe.

The SWA experience

My family and I try to visit Lake Tahoe as often as we can in the summer, one weekend last August we decided to leave the Sea Doo's at home and set out to try something new, something a bit more hassle free, a bit more relaxing, something different. After exploring a few options like Horse back riding, hiking, and mountain biking, we heard about a locally owned Water Sport Company on the North Shore, SWA Water Sports. When I called to see what, where, when, and how, I was greeted by a friendly guy by the name of Gerald. As it turned out Gerald was the owner of the company and took the time to explain everything I needed to know, asked and answered questions, told me what we could expect, etc, etc. I found him to be very professional, extremely knowledgeable and informative, but more important was how easy he was to talk to. We decided to book a trip for an afternoon of wake surfing which none of my family had ever done, (I had tried in the past with no success). We met Gerald at the Hyatt, he was right where he said he'd be and greeted us with a smile and escorted us to one of the nicest boats I'd ever seen, a gorgeous blue and white Mastercraft X80. This thing was awesome, totally immaculate, I knew instantly that we had called the right place. And so it began, we set out for an epic journey of fun in the sun and had thee absolute best time, EVER! Every single one of us got up on the first try (after Gerald gave us some instruction and tips on the best way to "pop" out of the water), and let me tell ya, that entire afternoon was a friggin blast!! By far one of the best times on Lake Tahoe to date, suntans and smiles all around, we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of this summer to do it again. We learned you can book Gerald or any member of his team for multiple days, and we already booked a full weekend this year with another family and can't wait to see what the guys at SWA will have in store for us this go round. I have since booked a few fishing trips with Gerald and he delivers a memorable day of fishing as well, these guys do it all. Do yourself a favor and call these guys for your next Tahoe adventure, they are the best, thank you again G, see ya soon.

BEST FATHER"S DAY EVER!

SURF LAKE TAHOE?? When I heard you could surf the waves on Lake Tahoe, I was skeptical. Indeed, the Master Craft X80 delivered a perfect wave. My boys and I enjoyed an awesome Father's day on sunny Lake Tahoe at the beginning of last summer. I grew up water skiing and was worried that I could not master the technique of wake surfing, having never mastered the timing of surfing on the ocean. This boat and crew makes it absolutely available to anyone. If you have ever gotten tired from trying to get pulled up on a ski, this adventure is for you. You are up surfing on the wave in 3 seconds, all 200 lbs., riding the wave, SURFING, and best of all jamming to my favorite tunes while literally talking to my family on the boat. I was surprised that you can actually step off the swim dock of the boat and ride the wave without getting wet. THIS WAS A BLAST!!!!!!

GERALD & Crew are great hosts! Super friendly, knowledgable about the lake, and make the day on the lake more fun than I ever imagined.
