Aboard an eco-friendly electric boat, groups capped at 12 tour Big Bear Lake, listening to the captain’s stories of the area, its history, and its foliage. Tours run on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, starting at a choice of three times: noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.
Captain John's Fawn Harbor Marina
Along the northern edge of Big Bear Lake sits Fawnskin Harbor, a tranquil respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Captain John's Fawn Harbor & Marina calls this serene alcove home, housing boats and doling out rental watercraft. From the harbor's docks and moorings, visitors launch pontoons, speedboats, canoes, and kayaks toward Grout Bay, a bald-eagle nesting site that also teems with great blue herons, osprey, and beavers. The wildlife sanctuary can also be infiltrated via standup paddleboard, a Hawaii-born craft that delivers a challenging core workout. Tours on an electric boat cruise the boulder- and tree-ringed bay area while passengers explore the lake, learn local history, and glimpse the lake's namesake surreptitiously brushing his coat.
