If you want to rent a boat on the north shore of Big Bear, Captain John's is a convenient and friendly marina on Grout Bay in the town of Fawnskin. You can rent motorboats, kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddle boards. Visit Captain John's website or call 909.866.6478 for updated information on availability and pricing.

Nearby paddling destinations are Grout Bay Picnic area, located on the west side of the cove, and Windy Point. If you are feeling particularly intrepid, you can continue across to Gilner Point or any of the coves on the south side of the lake. The marina has other activities to fill the day as well, including a nice little picnic area, playground, and disc golf course on the property.
