Boating, Canoeing & Kayaking
With a name like Mammoth Lakes, you can be sure that water adventures abound here! Create lasting memories as you pilot a pontoon boat, balance a stand-up paddleboard, or hike to a sandy beach.
Whether you’re paddling a canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard; or motoring a pontoon boat or small fishing boat, getting out on the water offers a unique perspective and is an excellent way to observe waterfowl, fish, and other wildlife. The scenery is incomparable, with sweeping views of the surrounding mountains and distinctive geological features. Delight in the sight of Carson Peak from June Lake, or Mammoth Mountain from Lake Mary. See how many of the 300 species of birds who frequent Mono Lake you can spot. Many visitors have even been thrilled to spot eagles and black bears during their boating adventures.
Rentals are available from local marinas, shops, and delivery services.
