All it takes to enjoy miles of summertime fun onboard a Shasta Lake Houseboat is a bathing suit, a little sunscreen, and a sense of adventure.
Shasta Lake’s waters are ideal for swimming and splashing around. It’s easy to find plenty of safe places to enjoy a dip tucked along the lake’s 365 miles of shoreline.
But to maximize your vacation experience, consider bringing along little extras that will take your fun in the sun to the next level.
1. Water Slide
Bridge Bay has a fantastic fleet of vessels to accommodate families of all sizes and tastes, and some of our premier vessels even have a built-in water slide!
Easily a favorite feature of our younger guests, an onboard water slide turns any corner of Shasta Lake into your own personal mini-waterpark in an instant.
A houseboat is a great way to enjoy leisurely explorations, but what if you are looking for more of a thrill? Then you may want to try a cruise or two onboard a zippy WaveRunner.
Bridge Bay marina also offers WaveRunner rentals on an hourly, daily, or even weekly basis, so you can enjoy an exciting exploration at your own, faster pace.
3. Water Toys
Bring along your favorite pool and water toys from home to enjoy on the miles of Shasta Lake waters, or if you don’t have room in the car, pick up a few when you arrive!
Our on-dock marina store features a number of fun toys and accessories to purchase or to rent, which can be brought onboard your houseboat rental with ease.
You can also swing by our gift shop to pick up a few extra toys, as well as some resort and swimwear to explore the open waters in style.
4. Fishing Gear
The summertime is a fine time for dropping a line, and there’s nothing more relaxing than spending a day or two exploring some of the great fishing holes that Shasta Lake has to offer.
Our Bridge Bay Marina store has you covered in terms of supplies, which includes bait, tackle, and ice for your fishing expeditions.
Be sure and ask about what’s biting, and remember that we’ll be happy to guide you in the right direction on the supplies you’ll need.
5. Waterproof Camera
You’ll be taking plenty of striking photos throughout your vacation of Shasta Lake’s famous landmarks, like the Shasta Dam or the towering Mount Shasta, but what about capturing some pics from a new perspective?
A waterproof or underwater camera can provide some unique family photos that can’t be duplicated and will be a fun project in and out of the water for kids and parents alike.
The summer revolves around fun on the water, and with a few little additions, you can increase the vacation wow-factor for everyone onboard!
Stop by our marina store to learn about the cool extras that are readily available, and get ready for a splashing good time that will provide plenty of unforgettable memories.
