Stateline, NV – With 72 miles of shoreline and a massive surface area of 191 square miles, navigating Lake Tahoe can be challenging. This summer, there’s a new way for boaters to navigate Lake Tahoe’s waters. Tahoe Regional Planning Agency and its partners launched a new Tahoe Boating app to inform boaters and paddlers about Lake Tahoe, no-wake zone boundaries, area attractions, and how to enjoy the lake safely and responsibly.
Boaters and paddlers can download the free Tahoe Boating app from either the Apple or Android stores or at tahoeboating.org
The Tahoe Boating app includes interactive mapping, giving boaters real-time location and direction of travel on the lake. Location information allows boaters to see their position in proximity to Lake Tahoe’s no-wake zones which requires boaters to stay under 5 mph within Emerald Bay, 600 feet of shore, 100 feet of swimmers and paddlers, and 200 feet of structures.
The Tahoe Boating app includes:
- An interactive map that shows a boat’s location relative to no-wake zones.
- Information about boating safety, aquatic invasive species, and emergency contacts.
- Locations of fuel stations and bathrooms.
- Lake Tahoe points of interest including detailed information and photos.
The Tahoe Boating App is one element of TRPA’s updated shoreline plan. The app will evolve over time, if you encounter issues or have feedback about the app, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Tahoe Regional Planning Agency leads the cooperative effort to preserve, restore, and enhance the unique natural and human environment of the Lake Tahoe Region, while improving local communities, and people’s interactions with our irreplaceable environment.
