We pride ourselves on having the best trained guides on Lake Tahoe. Our entire guide staff has been through an extensive trip leader certification program with the American Canoe Association. This is the group that certifies kayak and paddleboard guides. All guides are CPR and first aid certified. We run additional in house training and mentorship to ensure our guides are highly knowledgeable on all facets of Lake Tahoe. Many on our staff are above and beyond, with formal educations in recreation, environmental science, WFR, EMT, and NOLS. We start with the best outdoor professionals – raft guides, ski patrollers, ski instructors, and wilderness educators – and put them through our extensive training program. You end up with highly qualified, knowledgeable, friendly guides who will take your vacation to the next level.
