Ready to Launch

At this time, only vessels with an intact Lake Tahoe inspection seal can launch and no uninspected vessels from outside the Tahoe Region will be able to get on the water until orders to help slow the spread of the coronavirus are further relaxed. Watercraft inspection stations for the detection and prevention of aquatic invasive species will remain closed to boaters until further direction from public health officials.
