What to Expect for the 2021 Boating Season

Among the improvements we are making to the watercraft inspection process this year is an optional appointment system that will be available for a small convenience fee. Each inspection station will offer appointments in addition to the normal drop-in service. The appointment system will be available at www.tahoeboatinspections.com on April 1. Please show up to your appointment Clean, Drained, and Dry.

We also updated inspection fees making minimal changes to maintain high standards of customer service.  Inspections and decontaminations for non-motorized watercraft are available for free at all stations. Inspections are not required as long as the paddle craft are Clean, Drained, and Dry. Only Visa and Mastercard are accepted at the inspection stations.
