Boating Guide to Lake Havasu:
Lake Havasu and the rest of the Lower Colorado River is a natural paradise of striking desert scenery contrasting with the neon turquoise of the translucent waters, dotted with inlets, private coves and sandy beaches to enjoy. If you're interested in exploring, you can boat as far south as the Parker Dam and Bill Williams and as far north as Laughlin and the Davis Dam.
Powerboating is one of the favorite activities on Lake Havasu. Houseboating, pleasure boating and jetskiing are the best ways to enjoy the full expanse of Lake Havasu, exploring all the coves and inlets, or just letting it rip across the crystal waters. You can bring your own watercraft or rent your choice of boat from a number of rental dealerships:
Houseboat Rentals - Club Nautical, Boat Rentals Havasu, Lake Havasu Houseboat Rentals, Sandpoint Marina, Havasu Springs Resort, H2O Houseboat Vacations, or you can check out Seven Crown Resort in nearby Bullhead City.
