Great news: We've received clearance to rent boats from the Los Vaqueros Marina starting July 1!

Interested in boat rentals? Keep in mind:

  • Boats are first come first serve. 
  • Boat rentals are weather dependent. Strong winds prevent us from allowing any boats on the water, so be sure to call the Marina at 925-371-2628 to check wind conditions at LV before heading out to the watershed.
  • 6’ social distancing and masks while in line. 
  • Masks will be required for boat renters while on gangway and dock. 
  • Any interaction with staff requires a mask to be worn.


  • Fish Plants: Look out for some catfish plants in mid to late July!
  • Parking: Parking only in designated (paved and gravel) areas. Citations will be issued for vehicles parked outside of designated areas.
  • Watershed Hours: Our hours are 6 am to 8 pm. Please be sure to exit the watershed in a timely fashion as gates are locked promptly at closing time. Citations will be issued for late departure.
  • Trail Closures: Trail closures are still in effect to protect nesting Golden Eagles. For updates, find out more about Golden Eagles.
  • Safety: We’re continuing to wear masks and social distance out at the watershed. Please keep in mind that any interaction with staff requires a mask to be worn.
Thank you for continuing to follow all COVID-19 safety rules and guidelines while at the watershed. Your cooperation helps us stay open! Call the Marina at 925-371-2628 with questions.
