IMPORTANT things to know before you go boating on Lake Havasu

  • Travel on Lake Havasu is counter-clockwise, so you should stay to the right of the lake.

Lake Havasu Attractions and Beaches

Want to take a break from cruising around the lake? The good news is that there are dozens of great beaches on Lake Havasu and the Colorado River to explore. The Sandbar is one of the most popular gathering spots, with shallow water and soft sand to tie up and relax. It’s also a great place to go if you’re looking for a boat party.

When cruising on Lake Havasu, you can head south from Lake Havasu City, weaving down the Colorado River and eventually make your way to the Parker Dam. Or, venture northbound on the lake and explore the Topock Gorge, which is sometimes referred to as the “Mini Grand Canyon.”

    Yamaha VX Deluxe for Rent on Lake Havasu City

    Fred is the BEST person to rent jet skis from in Lake Havasu. If you rent from Fred, you won’t regret it, he will make everything hassle free! We were staying in Parker and realized our truck didn’t have the right sized hitch for the jet skis and Fred was kind enough to launch them at our resort launch ramp. Towards the end of the day, my bf had ran out of fuel on the jet ski at 430-5pm and was so beyond far that it was a mission to get him, I was panicking as my bf was 2 hours away from where we were supposed to be at to return the skis back to him. Fred kept his cool and assured me that we would be able to get him. Fred went above and beyond, we are so grateful for his exceptional customer service. We had a Yahama and a SparkTrixx for the entire day, thank you so much again Fred!
