Rented a pontoon boat with friends for the morning. The boat was clean and worked well. We cruised around and fished. A little pricey but very nice.

We too the Big Bear Queen for a spin and it was wonderful! Took a tour of the lake, movie stars vacation homes, filming locations, etc. Bring a coat just in case it cools off while you are on the water!
