The state of Arizona– frequently referred to as “Arizona’s West Coast” – is not usually the first state you think of when it comes to beautiful beaches, but people love the lakes for their sandy beaches and clear, calm waters. With perfect weather, few waves, and clean freshwater, it’s a great pick for families.

Powerboats and powered watercraft like jet skis and water skis are some of the most popular boat rental options when you want to explore Arizona, but there are growing numbers of kayaks, canoes, SUP, and paddle boats. Since there aren’t any speed limits or size restrictions for boating here, you’ll see a little bit of everything.

When it comes to fishing charters the Arizona is abundant and diverse in its fishing opportunities. Anglers looking for smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, and striped bass will love Cattail Cove. This location is filled with fishing charters and excursions which is a must for avid anglers looking to enjoy the beach life while fishing for bass and catfish.

If you are looking for a boating spot to spend time on, the clear waters of Lake Powell offers nearly 2 million people every year a place to vacation, relax, enjoy all that nature has to offer as well as a respite from the hot, desert summers. Fed by the Colorado River, this reservoir has carved a place for itself on the border of Utah and Arizona. Visitors typically have their spread of boats available for rent near Lake Powell— houseboats, powerboats, and kayaks being among the most popular. Fish are plentiful as well as the sheer, orange, red, and pink sandstone walls that border the blue waters.

Many visitors and locals who visit Arizona take their boating vacation to the next level and rent camping gear alongside the boat of their choice better to zip around the lake and experience a new shore to sleep on each night. After you’ve had your fill of boating, step ashore and explore colorful Antelope Canyon among other national parks, canyons, and historic sites.  

Want to take a break from cruising around the lake? The good news is that there are dozens of great beaches to explore on one of Arizona’s top boating locations, Lake Havasu and the Colorado River. The Sandbar is one of the most popular gathering spots, with shallow water and soft sand to post up, watch people, and relax. Another convenient spot is Friendly Island, also known as Beaver Island, just 6.5 kilometers from the London Bridge. It’s easy to pick up and drop off boaters here, and you can even tack on a short camping trip.

The depth and breadth of boating opportunities in Arizona can be surprising to discover. Whether you love to kayak or canoe, fish, water ski or drive a personal watercraft, there are a large number of boats to be had and places to go. On a hot Arizona day, boating is one of the most refreshing things to try. The only unsurprising thing about your boat trip in this region is that you will probably want to go back as often as possible.

While you’re in Arizona, make sure to check out these areas: Mesa, Phoenix, Lake Havasu City, and Peoria.

    Isaac was an amazing captain/host! He was responsive, professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I was looking into boat rentals, thinking I would take the licensure course and captain the boat myself. However, I thought it would be best for my family if we had a captain so I could help my wife with our three kids (ages 13,10 and 2.5). This was a great decision as Isaac, being a father himself, took care of us like he would his own family. There is no way I would have been able to navigate the waters as carefully and cautiously as Isaac did. The boat was immaculate and in great condition. Isaac provided everything we needed, including drinks, towels, and life vests. He even purchased a couple brand new life vests for us as he wanted to make sure we had the right sizes. We went by the Hoover Dam, to two different beaches and tubing during our time. Isaac wasn’t intrusive at all. He knew when to step back and give us our time and when to engage with us if we had questions. I could not recommend him more and will definitely be renting from him again on our next trip to Vegas.

    Andy was a great host. He provides great communication beforehand and plans out an. Itinerary based off what you want to do. Had a great time tubing and wakeboarding and also got a pretty close look at Hoover Dam. Andy is very cool and friendly and makes sure that everyone has a great time. He’s super patient with us as we have never tubed or wakeboarded and made sure that you were taken care of. Highly recommend Andy for your Lake Mead adventure needs!!

    We loved everything about our private boat tour with Jared! He took us to a few different spots on the lake that we would not have otherwise known about. He was a pleasure and helped make our family boating on Lake Mead a fun memorable day for our whole family!

    Isaac was amazing to work with! He really came through for us after another boating company cancelled last minute. He was quick to respond, reliable, and provided everything we needed for an epic day on Lake Mead. If you want to have a great boating adventure on the lake, he's your guy.
