Inspect Your Boat

Watercraft are the largest source for spreading aquatic invasive species (AIS) into waterways. Inspections are an essential part of preventing this inadvertent transport of alien species into the pristine waters of Lake Tahoe. Visit to learn more about mandatory inspections for motorized boats, to locate boat inspection stations and see current inspection fees. Minimize your inspection time by arriving to the inspection site Clean, Drained and Dry.
