Kayaking Lake Tahoe on a Hobie Kayak from Tahoe City Kayak

Try one of our breathtaking tours or learn the ropes with one of our kayak or SUP lessons.

Guided Kayak Tours

Our tours offer an intimate look at the most beautiful lake in America.  Come experience Lake Tahoe in style, with our experienced guides. If you’d like a worry free, hassle free, fun and informative way to get out on the water, a guided kayak tour with Tahoe City Kayak is a great choice.

Tours depart from two spectacular locations.  Sand Harbor is arguably the best beach on Lake Tahoe with white sand and crystal blue water. Paddle in water with 70 foot visibility, past gorgeous granite boulders and outcrops.  Tahoe City is an authentic mountain town, nestled between the Sierra Crest and Lake Tahoe.  Paddle past some of Tahoe’s oldest settlements, and learn about the extensive human history of this beautiful town.

All tours include water, kayaks, paddles, PFDs, dry bags, and a guide.  Our longer tours include either a deli style picnic lunch on the beach, or a gourmet fixed menu at Jake’s on the Lake. We run tours with a maximum client to guide ratio of 8:1.

You will meet your guide right on the water at either of our locations. Your tour starts with paddling instruction and a safety talk.  After your guide assists with launching, we paddle as a group while the guide entertains with a series of talks on the geology, geography, ecology, natural and human history of the area.  All tours return to where they started.
