Boat Rentals

Boat Rentals are available at most of the marinas listed above.

Try the Carefree Boat Club at Lakeshore Marina on Watauga Lake with an alternative to renting. They offer shared boat ownership that enables you to have access to a boat without buying it. There’s an initiation fee plus a monthly fee that provides access to a boat when you need it.

Boating Courtesy and Safety

  • Safety Equipment: You should carry this safety equipment in your boat: a wearable and properly-sized personal floatation device for each rider; a whistle or horn, a fire extinguisher, a flat throwable flotation cushion, your boat rental agreement (if applicable) and your boat registration certificate. Children under 14 should always wear a personal floatation device.
  • No Wake Zones: Within 50 feet of shore, another boat, a swimmer, a dock, or a no-wake zone (indicated by no-wake buoys) you are required by law to operate your boat at your boat’s lowest possible navigable forward speed.
  • Other Rules and Regulations: Please review TWRA’s online boating information (including regulations) carefully before you boat at Watauga! You can get a copy at any marina.
