FAQ’s



IS GAS INCLUDED IN THE RENTAL?
Gas will be charged at a flat rate based on your rental duration. Please check out our 2022 Rental Rates page for more information.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERNECE BETWEEN A BOAT RENTAL AND A CHARTERED RENTAL?

Enjoy the fun of boating without the hassle of driving! We can provide a list of third-party boat drivers / tour guides that are available for you to hire to drive the boat. Call to book a chartered rental and we can book you for the boat and will provide you with a list of third-party drivers to contact. All payments & scheduling must be done through the driver.


WHAT IS THE SUNNYSIDE WATER SPORTS CANCELLATION POLICY?

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*


WHAT TIME AND WHERE DO I CHECK-IN ON THE DAY OF MY RENTAL?
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).


WHERE CAN I PARK?
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.


HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE TO RENT A BOAT OR JET SKI?
You must be 25 or older to rent and drive the boat and 18 or older to rent and drive a jet ski.


WHAT ITEMS ARE REQUIRED AT THE TIME OF CHECK-IN?
Please bring a government issued ID and the credit card used for booking. Please have your whole group present to check-in.


CAN WE BRING OUR OWN FOOD/DRINKS ON THE BOAT?
Yes, you are more than welcome to bring coolers, drinks, food, etc. We just ask that you keep all of your trash and dispose of it once you return to the marina, not in the boat, lake, or marina. Let’s Keep Tahoe Blue!


CAN WE STOP AT A LAKESIDE RESTAURANT FOR LUNCH?
Yes, but Sunnyside requires our renters to use the lakefront tender services. NO tying off on piers or other boats.


CAN WE ANCHOR OR BEACH OUR RENTAL BOAT?
There are anchors on the boat for safety purposes ONLY! Renters are not permitted to use the anchors unless for emergencies. Beaching rental boats is not allowed as well.


ARE DOGS ALLOWED ON BOATS?
Unfortunately we do not allow dogs on our rental boats.


PSST! DON’T FORGET!
