Lake Fun & Activities

Lake Norman lake activities can mean a variety of things from water skiing, wake-boarding, rowing, to fishing and sailing, it's a water sports paradise. With so many acres and miles of shoreline, the best way to see the lake is by boat. Several marinas grace the shores of Lake Norman, providing boat launches, boat slips, boat storage, boat rentals, boat repairs, and gas stops for when you need to refuel. With no horsepower or speed limit on Lake Norman, power boats, bass boats, sailboats, and pontoons share the sparkling waters with kayaks, canoes, and even the occasional paddle boat.

The Lake Norman area is rich in things to do on the lake!  Join in on the fun that fits your schedule. Below are links to sailing, boating, fishing, chartered cruises, marina, and more. Some boating activities do require a boating class, scroll to the bottom for more information. For your safety, LIFE JACKETS are required for ALL boats and jet skis.
