Not Allowed

  • A Captain must operate the double decker for you for all rentals.  Enjoy the Lake and don’t worry about operating the ship!
  • You can choose to operate one of our Cobalt rentals on your own if you wish.  You must have a designated driver and we will do a full safety and vessel orientation for all rentals.  
  • No Pets of any kind, sorry! While we love pets, we can’t have them aboard because of brand new upholstery and cleaning/damage issues. This includes BOTH service animals and emotional support animals! Really sorry, please don’t bring your pet. 
  • No Red Wine
  • No Grilles of any sort, sorry! We can’t have grease stains on the flooring or upholstery
  • No Glass Bottles
  • No guests allowed on upper deck when the boat is in motion
  • Children 12 and under must wear a PFD at all times
  • No more than 11 guests for double decker rentals, and the Cobalt has a max capacity of 10 total guests but really seats more like 6-8 comfortably.   We cannot have more than 11 guests at any point in time due to US Coast Guard regulations. We cannot pick you up at our dock and then pick up a bunch more of your friends elsewhere if that would bring your passenger count above 11, sorry!
  • Children (including infants!) count as a person according to USCG regulations.  
  • Please be aware that the latest you can return back to the dock is 7:00 PM so we can get the boat back into storage before they lock up for the day. 
  • Pro tip: Show up early! The Lake Forest Boat Ramp parking lot fills up and it will be a lot more convenient for your group to be there ahead of time and have convenient parking than showing up during the mid morning rush of other boaters getting ready to enjoy the Lake. 🙂

Cancellation Policy

  • Blue Zephyr Boat Rentals will only cancel on your reservation from our end with a full refund if winds are forecast above 20 knots on the date of your booking or the Air Quality Index in Tahoe City CA is above 300 AQI.  If your group wishes to cancel or postpone their reservation, we can offer to hold a credit for your reservation which holds its value for a rental later in the season or the next season, and this credit never expires.
