Full Moon Kayak Tours

Full Moon Kayak Tours
Explore Lake Tahoe Under the Full Moon!

Float in a kayak on the clear blue water while the sun sets the sky on fire, the full moon rises, and the stars twinkle! The water will be calm and quiet as the wind dies down and other boats button up for the night. Increase your knowledge of astronomy with jaw dropping views of Lake Tahoe illuminated by the light of the full moon. We paddle for about two hours before landing on the beach to cap it all off with hot drinks, snacks, and more stargazing on the beach.

When the moon isn't Full, Sunset paddles are still offered.

Trips include kayak, paddle, life jacket, knowledgeable guides, instruction, natural and human history, astronomy discussions, permit fees. Some personal clothing required.

Not Included: Guide gratuities.
