It’s been hot outside, which only means one thing in Walworth County – it’s time to get out on the water! We are so lucky to be nestled among some of the most beautiful lakes in Wisconsin. I mean, what better remedy to summer heat than cruisin’ around the lake? Don’t have a boat of your own? No matter where you are staying, there’s a number of businesses that rent and even provide lessons to make sure you have fun on the water.
Whether your destination is Bohners Lake, Powers Lake or Twin Lakes, Action Marine will deliver a boat to you and pick it up for free when you’re done with your fun. They can find the perfect rental fit for you.
For safety, many locations offering motor boat rentals require you take a boat education course if you were born after January 1, 1989. Don’t let that slow you down though! The Wisconsin Boat Rental Course gets you certified for a year and gets you on the water in less than an hour! From pontoons to speed boats, Action Marine has what you need for water action on any of these fantastic lakes. They also deliver to Geneva Lake, Lake Como, Delavan Lake, Silver Lake, Paddock Lake, and Browns Lake.
If camping is apart of your summer traditions, Scenic Ridge Campground is the perfect escape to enjoy both the great outdoors and life on the lake. They have pontoon boats, aqua cycles, kayaks, and paddle boards for rent as well as a sandy swimming beach on Whitewater Lake with excellent fishing and water ski shows on Saturday evenings.
Resort life is a great way to enjoy all the possible water activities available. Lake Lawn Resort will treat you to a day on Delavan Lake and help plan all the fun for you. You can rent pontoons, wave runners, kayaks, paddle boards, and more. However, if being in the water is not what you’re feeling, you can lounge by their indoor or two seasonal outdoor pools and enjoy the sun rays.
Is the solitude in a boat and a fishing pole more your speed? You can venture out on your own to fish or simply enjoy the ride in a pontoon after visiting Lakeside Bait & Tackle. Or relax a bit and experience the tranquility of Lake Comus in a kayak or paddle board from Delavan Paddle Sports.
Explore Geneva Lake end to end and see why so many can’t resist the draw of this summer hot spot. If you are new to water sports Clear Water Outdoor says, “No experience necessary”. They offer classes and social paddle events on Geneva Lake every week. Are you new but daring? Then venture along the shore to Gage Marine and learn how to wake board, surf, or ski in their “The Wake Experience”. These private lessons are ideal for any group size and are perfect for anyone looking to learn about or perfect their abilities!
Take hold of the helm at Gordy’s Marine and take the kids out skiing, boarding, or tubing in their exclusive Cobalt speed boats. Or take on the waves head on with a wave runner from Marina Bay Boat Rentals. They have a wide selection of motor boats and pontoon boats as well as wave runners available for rent by the hour. They are conveniently located in downtown Lake Geneva on the lakefront. Right across the street from Sprecher’s, treat yourself to a bottle of root beer or beer when you’re done for the day.
Still, what sets Geneva Lake apart from all the others, is the true Lake Geneva experience…the Lake Geneva Cruise Line. A fun family tradition since 1873! Several scenic, narrated cruises to choose from, including the famous U.S. Mailboat Tour, Ice Cream Social, Lunch Cruise, Dixieland Dinner Cruise, Sunset Cruise and much more! It’s a time on the water that just can’t be compared.
When you have access to over 24 lakes, it’s easy understand why we know what we’re doing when it comes to fun on the lake! We want you to fall in love water in Walworth County.
