Lake Sport Rentals & Eco-Friendly Lake Tours

Captains John’s Fawn Harbor & Marina is the perfect location to relax by the beautiful Big Bear Lake. Whether you rent a boat to explore the lake, take our guided tour, paddle around the harbor or just relax lake-side we have something to fit every ones needs.


Boat Tours

Regularly scheduled 2 hour lake tours are perfect if you want to enjoy the outdoors, learn about Big Bear history, and discover little known secrets about the mountain lake resort. Each Captain shares his or her unique experiences and stories–making each trip unlike any other. Because our focus is to provide a memorable voyage, each tour is limited to 12 passengers which means you will be in an intimate setting and enjoy the chance to converse with each other and the guide. You won’t find a crowded noisy experience on board–quite the opposite.


Boat Cruises

A lake boat cruise is a private affair geared toward couples or small groups who are seeking a different way to spend time with family or friends. Available by reservation only, Captain John’s has several different options. Catering is available by direct arrangement with one of our preferred vendors, so don’t hesitate to contact them or feel free to find other options suited to your taste. The 2 hour Big Bear lake boat cruise is a popular choice for family celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries or quality time away from distractions.
