Water Shuttle Returns to Lake Dillon

There is a brand new Water Shuttle operating on Lake Dillon for the summer of 2018. Operating out of both the Dillon Marina and the Frisco Bay Marina, the shuttle offers a one way or round trip ride for adults, children six to twelve, and bring your children five and under for free along with your leashed canine companion, or your bike for a small fee. This is a great way to see the lake surrounded by mountains on three sides, or to hop over from one marina to another for a tropical beverage or lunch at the Tiki Bar at the Lake Dillon Marina or the Island Grill at the Frisco Bay Marina. After riding Vail Pass think about finishing your half day bike rental with lunch at one of the marinas before or after your boat trip and a bike ride back from Dillon to Frisco along the Summit County Recreational Path. The shuttle is also available for private charter for a minimum of two hours, additional hours may also be rented, where you are able to bring your own food and beverages on board for a one-of-a-kind picnic. Another option is to rent the boat for the Dillon Concert Series (Concert Schedule, where you can be picked up from either marina and then listen from the water or embark to walk to the Dillon Amphitheater. The web site has just been updated with the latest pricing: Lake Dillon Water Shuttle information can be found here and Private Charter Information is included in the Boat Rentals, Tours and Lessons page under the Tour Tab and then Tour Option 3 information at Be sure to check out the newest addition to the family of activity vendors for High Country Activities and call to book your adventure on Lake Dillon as soon as possible. We are so happy to have this service back on Lake Dillon under a new company, after this was not offered in 2017.
