Ways to Get Wet in Lake Havasu, Arizona


Lake Havasu, Arizona, is a large reservoir on the Colorado River that also happens to be an Arizona hot spot. Make that cool spot, and for good chunk of the year, too. By the time the spring rolls around, Lake Havasu is the place to be, first for lively “spring-breakers” and then with summer, a more family-friendly crowd. With all that water, it might like getting wet isn’t much of a problem. And it’s not. However, the visitor would be remiss to think that it begins and ends at the swimming beach. Well it might, but there’s plenty in between worth considering.

Boating tops the list, with a good selection of marinas and launch ramps to suit the needs of those who’ve come equipped with their own water craft. Short your own ski boat, pontoon boat, paddle board, kayak, waverunner, wakeboard, fishing boat or yes, wet suit, it’s easy enough to rent one through waterside operators that specialize in watersports. Looking for round-the-clock access to your own secluded stretch of lake? Rent a houseboat, and lose your landlubber connections. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, you might not expect it but scuba diving is also a popular Lake Havasu, Arizona, pastime. There are over 30 dive sites around the lake, and when peak summer the water temperature hits 85 degrees you might not even want a wet suit.

And for those with young ones in tow in search of a way to escape the sun for a few hours, consider paying the Lake Havasu City Aquatic Center a call. Their indoor wave pool, water slide and kiddie lagoon should keep all parties entertained for a few hours at least.

Finally, it might not mean whole body submersion but a day of fishing at this popular angling lake is a fine way to feel the splash of a lunker as you reel it in - consider dressing light for a good dip when you’ve met your limit.
