No, gas is an additional $10/hr based on your rental duration.

Enjoy the fun of boating without the hassle of driving! Sunnyside Marina works with a third party company – Tahoe Boat Drivers – that help assign drivers and instructors to our boat rentals. Due to Coast Guard regulations, payment for the driver must be paid directly to the driver for $50/hr. Book online or call for more information.

Sunnyside takes a 50% deposit (payment) at the time of booking. Cancellations can be made up to 3 days (72 hours) before your booking for a full refund. If you cancel within the 72 hour period, the 50% deposit will be forfeited. * Exceptions: Weather conditions can be very unpredictable in Tahoe. Full refunds or rebookings (dependent on availability) will be given if we decide it is not safe to be on the water*

We ask that you arrive at least 30min prior to your rental time with your whole group present. You will check in at our rental tent down by the water. If you are looking at Sunnyside Restaurant from the street we are located on the right hand side (walk all the way down to the dock).

There is a parking lot across the street from the lake and rental tent in the marina storage building. You must leave your keys with the marina office if you decide to park there. There is also a smaller lot on the lake side however it does fill up quickly.

Boats: 25 or older to rent/operate a boat. 21 or older to rent a boat with a driver.
Jet Skis: 18 or older to rent/ operate a jet ski. Passengers must be 5 years of age or older to ride on the back.

Please bring a government issued ID and the credit card used for booking. Please have your whole group present to check-in.
