Boating and Paddling at lake Tahoe

Boating and paddling season has arrived!  This year, we are looking forward to
a much safer season than last, thanks in part to the free Tahoe Boating App.

Tahoe Boating App

The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency (TRPA), in collaboration with the League to Save Lake Tahoe, developed the app to inform boaters about Lake Tahoe, the location of marinas and gas stations, area attractions, and how to enjoy the Lake safely and responsibly, including no-wake zone boundaries.

The app grew out of the 2018 Shoreline Plan, which you can read about here.


Take this short survey to help us improve the Tahoe Boating App. Everyone who spends time on the water at Lake Tahoe should download and use the app. The more users, the more enjoyable and safer boating and paddling will be for all. And with your help, we can make the app even better.

Haven't used the app before? No problem. Download it now, give it a dry run, and share your feedback.


The single largest threat to Lake Tahoe's delicate ecology are aquatic invasive species, including shellfish, weeds and fish. These harmful ecological invaders can stow away on your boat, kayak, trailer or paddleboard, and find their way into Big Blue. Learn more about aquatic invasive species at Tahoe.

It's crucial to clean, drain and dry your watercraft before launching. Visit for more info. In case you missed it: Lake Tahoe boat inspection appointments can now be made online.

You can help the League tackle aquatic invasive species by joining our Eyes on the Lake citizen science monitoring program. Learn more.
