Tour Description

From our beachfront location in Tahoe Vista, California, we offer a fantastic kayak tour with stunning views of the High Sierra. We start with a lesson on land before heading out for a paddle. Along the way, your guides will talk about geology, ecology, and other aspects of the natural world and human history. Depending on the lake's conditions, you may paddle along King's Beach's shoreline, through Crystal Bay's boulder fields, or along the picturesque coastline towards Carnelian Bay while catching a rare glimpse of some of Tahoe's most exquisite waterfront residences. As you glide through the water, take in the stunning views of the nearby peaks and breathe in the fresh mountain air. This is an experience that your entire family will enjoy, whether you're a seasoned paddler or a first-timer. Our tour is sure to leave you feeling inspired and rejuvenated as you take in the natural beauty that surrounds you. So grab your paddle and get ready for an adventure that will leave lasting memories for years to come!
