Sand Harbor Kayak Tour

Sand Harbor Kayak Tour
Special Note: Sand Harbor now requires ALL tour guests to be shuttled into the park. Our guests can now enjoy our FREE shuttle and FREE PARKING at our meeting spot

Welcome to The Ultimate Sand Harbor Experience! We now offer a hassle-free Sand Harbor experience! No need to battle traffic and race to Sand Harbor first thing in the morning in hopes of gaining admission to the park to make your tour. Instead, conveniently meet your guide for a morning departure on Tahoe Adventure Company’s private shuttle! Upon arrival to Sand Harbor, you will have time to use the restroom, apply sunscreen, and enjoy the beach before setting off to explore the only undeveloped side of Lake Tahoe - The East Shore!

Your guides will first cover a comprehensive kayak lesson on the beach. Once on the water, we paddle along the rustic coastline and iconic boulder fields, soaking up the incredible Sierra views. Your guide will discuss the geology, ecology, and other natural and human history topics throughout your trip. We end our trip with snacks and cold beverages back on the beach at Sand Harbor.

- Choice of single or double kayaks, paddles, lifejackets, and dry bags
