Top 5 Ways to Have Fun in the Water This Summer at Big Bear Lake


There are endless possibilities to enjoy some time out on the water this summer in Big Bear. Ready to escape the heat and dive into fun? Check out our top 5 ways to have fun when staying in one of our Big Bear Getaway vacation rentals: 

Take a Boat Tour on the Miss Liberty 

Sit back, take in the breathtaking scenery, and enjoy a fully narrated 90-minute guided tour featuring highlights of Big Bear’s rich history dating back to 1845. They also have sunset cruises – a perfect way to end another perfect day out on the lake.  


Kayak or SUP (Stand Up Paddle) with Gear from Get Boards

With two locations, Get Boards makes renting paddle equipment easy and enjoyable. Hit the water in a kayak or give stand-up paddle boarding a try. Pups can join in the fun too! Either choice of watercraft, we guarantee you will love this fun and invigorating way to explore the calm and cool waters of Big Bear Lake. Check out their website for coupons and discounts!  


Go Fishing on Big Bear Lake at Boulder Bay Park 

Fishing in Big Bear Lake is fun for the whole family. Drop a line from your boat, or from the shore. Locals say the north shore has some of the best spots for catching trout, bass, and carp. We also love Boulder Bay Park with its large fishing dock, picnic area, and stunning views. Fishing licenses and tackle can be purchased at any marina and many of the local shops.  

If you like the sound of that, why not book a Boulder Bay cabin as your home base on your trip to Big Bear?


Rent a Boat from a Local Marina and Cruise Big Bear Lake on Your Own 

Boating on Big Bear Lake is one of the most popular activities during the summer season. On a sunny day, you will see all kinds of boats out on the water. Enjoy a different view of this stunning lake as you explore coves, inlets, islands, and beaches. If you do not own a boat, you can rent one from one of the many marinas around the lake. Big Bear Marina is a wonderful place to rent a boat for your “boat day” excursion! 


Try the Alpine Water Slides 

Take a break from the lake, and take a ride down the Alpine water slide. Riders can enjoy twisting and turning through refreshing crystal blue waters, before making a big splash into the heated pool. Thrill seekers can also enjoy other attractions at the Magic Mountain Recreation Area – Soaring Eagle, Mineshaft Coaster, go-karts, and the Alpine Slide
