A Collective of Subcontracted Captains for hire in the Lake Tahoe area. 

With New laws going into effect every year, we are offering a new and safe way to enjoy your day on the lake a whole new way.  Our select captains go through strict background checks and checkout rides on each type vessel they operate.  From Teaching you how to better run your boat,  Walking you through your boaters safety, or helping you with your rental boat, These select Captains will Show you everything you need to know.  Want to learn watersports?  Check out our list captains that have passed our instructors check out and are available right here.

Why Take a Licensed Captain

We here at The Boat Captain's like to think that there is no better way to get to know your vessel than with someone who can take you through all the scenarios, good and bad, you might face out there on the water... or maybe even in your own driveway.

Let us show you the ropes.  Let us show you how to better teach your family how to wake surf or waterski so that when we're not there you have a better experience as a boat owner and your family keeps coming back for more. 

Professional Watersports Instructors with

United States Coast Guard Captains License

To be a Captain and a Watersports instructor is very unique in the industry.  Not only do they need to be a Captain with safety in mind at all times, they need to know the sports and their disciplines well. This makes these captains very special.


At The Boat Captain, we require the captains to meet a certain standard as well as meet the qualifications required to legally and safely operate upon navigable waters.  Our federally regulated US Coast Guard Licensed Captains are sure to take your boating experience to the next level.
