Sand Harbor and Cave Rock boat launch summer hours


LAKE TAHOE, Nev. — New operating hours have been established for all boat launch facilities at Lake Tahoe due to the new Tahoe Regional Planning Agency’s Lake Tahoe Boat Inspection Program.

Boat launch facilities at Sand Harbor and Cave Rock will have new summer hours beginning May 1. Sand Harbor’s boat launch hours will be 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Cave Rock’s hours will be 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. Both locations will be open seven days a week through September 30.

Although the Sand Harbor boat launch is now closed, it is anticipated to be open by May 1 as water levels rise due to the melting snowpack.

Watercraft inspections are required as part of the new program that is helping to protect Lake Tahoe from the threat of aquatic invasive species such as Quagga and Zebra mussels.

Boaters may plan ahead before boating on Lake Tahoe by calling 888-824-6267 or 775-831-0494 for up-to-date boat ramp information.
