Touring the lake surface in a canoe gets you closer to nature and we recommend watercraft sports as a relaxing alternative to your normal exercise regime as well as a great social activity.

Canoeing is great for connecting with each other but also fantastic for enjoying nature and the great outdoors. Families find that getting the kids into boat rowing or canoe paddling helps to get rid of some of their excess energy and helps them to sleep deeply.

Big Bear Lake offers the canoeist a peaceful way to take in the views around Big Bear Lake. Watercraft excursions are suitable for people of all ages and canoeing abilities.  Our fleet includes rental vessels of all types which allow you take enjoy a self-guided canoe trip around the lake or allows casual paddling not too far from the marina or shoreline.

In case you don’t know, Captain John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina offers the perfect spot for picnics, a game of horseshoes, swimming, sunbathing or simply relaxing. This year our lakeside beachfront offers amazing opportunities for boat or shoreline fishing for bass and trout.

Whether you decide to take one of you eco-friendly nature tours or opt for a self-guided canoe rental, you’ll enjoy the serenity of the high altitude scenery while getting better views of the wildlife found in the nearby nature preserve.  If you are up for it, sign up for one of our staff guided watercraft tours. You can pick your vessel (canoe, kayak or stand-up paddleboard) and enjoy a leisurely discovery tour that will let you view some of the local wildlife and glimpse a variety of birds.

You might not know that Big Bear Lake sits below the Pacific Flyway so you’ll find bird watching is at its best from the lake surface. Keep your eyes and ears open for different species and share your unique sightings with our staff when you check out.
