Launch & Harbor

At Homewood High & Dry Marina we make launching your boat as easy as possible. Our gantry launch and forklifts can accommodate a wide variety of boat sizes and ensure that your boat is safely lowered into the water.

Please note that we do not have a boat ramp at our location and all boats must complete an inspection before they are launched into Lake Tahoe. Locations and hours of inspection stations can be found here. 


Don’t waste any time getting on the water and grab fuel at our gas dock during summer. We currently serve Regular Unleaded 89 Octane.

Gas Dock Hours
May & June: 8am – 4:45pm
July & August: 7am – 5:45 pm
September: 8am – 4:45pm


The Homewood High & Dry Marina primarily uses Marina Bull Wiggins Forklifts to transport boats within the Marina including hoisting them into dry storage and launching them in the water. Our forklifts can typically carry boats from 23’ to 33’ in length. We carefully consider several factors including size and dry weight before determining whether our forklift can safely accommodate a boat.

Our gantry is essentially a large elevator made for launching watercraft up to 22′ in length. The boat and trailer are backed onto a large platform which is gently lowered into the water. Once the boat is properly position it can be launched and the platform brings the trailer back up to dry land for storage. The gantry is a very slow and controlled process making it ideal for launching classic wooden boats and also smaller watercraft such as jet skis.
