Big Bear Lake Water Sports

Pine Knot Landing, only a half mile from Big Bear Frontier, offers a vast assortment of activities on Big Bear Lake including: tours, boat rentals and water sports.

Lake Tours

Climb aboard the Sierra Belle and explore the sparkling splendor of Big Bear Lake. An hour and a half tour leisurely coasts you along the lake to admire its surrounding landscape, breathe in the fresh mountain air and absorb the wonderment of nature. You'll also learn about the vast history of Big Bear Valley including the California Gold Rush, the creation of the lake, famous residents and pivotal characters in Big Bear's rich history. For those traveling in large groups, the Sierra Belle also offers private tours for conferences and banquets.

Boat Rentals

Whether you're looking to fish, see the sights, or merely lounge on the lake; there are a variety of recreational boats to choose from at Pine Knot Landing's. The most popular choice is a pontoon boat. This boat seats 8 to 12 people and is great for leisurely on-the-lake gatherings. Some are even equipped with stereos. During holidays and weekends, it's advised you book in advance.

Those looking to cast out a reel and snag a few champion-sized trout can choose from a selection of aluminum boats. Fishing boats seat anywhere from 8 to 12 passengers and are rented by half day, full day and super day rates. For the excitement seeker, speed boats are the way to go. Featuring a 90 horse-powered engine, these aquatic vessels are quite speedy indeed. (Rented speed boats don't allow any type of water sports in tow, yet charted tow services are offered.)

Water Sports

Combine the excitement of hang-gliding, parachuting and hot air ballooning on a parasailing adventure over Big Bear Lake with Big Bear Parasailing. Even better, you don't have to get wet from starting in the water on this voyage. If you and your sweetheart want to enjoy this experience together, tandem flights are also offered. For those who would rather delve right into the lake - water skiing, wakeboarding, knee boarding, tube riding and Wave Runners are also here to enjoy.

Set Sail aboard Big Bear's only Pirate Ship!

The Big Bear Pirate Ship is a must visit each time you are in Big Bear Lake. We offer daily tours of the lake featuring live entertainment, and our own authentic Pirates. The lake tours can be, and often are different each time. Each captain who drives the ship has their own personality and style, and you always get a fantastic tour around the lake.

Just think - all these adventures and more are merely a half mile from Big Bear Frontier.
