What to expect
At the rental shop in South Lake Tahoe, receive a safety briefing and quick lesson before hopping in your single, sit-on-top kayak and setting off across the water. Paddle across the lake at your own pace, pushing it fast if you want a workout or going slow if you just want to soak up the idyllic alpine scenery. Travel along the shoreline to avoid the boat lanes, and perhaps go in search of tranquil beaches and coves. Depending on the rental period you select when booking, you may even be able to paddle all the way to Emerald Bay, one of the lake’s most scenic locations, known for tiny Fannette Island that sits in the middle of the bay—Lake Tahoe’s only island. (If you’d like recommendations on other places to check out on your kayak, just ask the staff at the rental shop.) When your rental period is over, return the kayak to the marina.

Cold waters
Jul 2020
I went in the middle of the summer. Very cold waters. Only one place you can go with a dog at Incline Village. This place is over over rated. I can’t see what’s the excitement about this place. There are over 3000 lakes/reservoirs In California.

Not worth coming here
May 2020
Looks like this place is getting only one time tourists and their quality reflects that.
We came to rent kayak around 9:15 and they surprised us that kayak rental only opens at 10 am.
At 10 am nobody was at the kayak booth so I came over to the main booth and a new guy told me that kayaks will open "within the hour". What??? 40 mins ago it was at 10am and now it's within the hour?!
We got lucky - a girl slowly walked in and surprised guy told me its her who work at kayaks.
The girl slooowly unpacked and then I spent 25 mins filling up the forms for me and 2 kids. 3 forms online on barely working app and then some paper forms too.
Btw, I am writing this review in the middle of pandemic with shelter in place in order, etc. The girl did not wear a mask. It did not seem like she disinfect all the pens after each use or do anything regarding spreading covid from kayak to kayak. Okeey.
She was nice to give me extra time because of the long wait but we actually did not use it because I don't think this particular location provides enough scenery to kayak for hours. We were done in an hour. Next time we will rent kayak somewhere else or bring ours out of garage.

We lucked out by having excellent weather and very calm waters. Very relaxing time paddling around the rock formations and watching the fish is crystal clear water.

Kayak Rental at South Lake Tahoe
Sep 2018 • Couples
We came to the Ski Run marina and spontaneously decided to rent a kayak to explore Lake Tahoe. Rental process was very easy at the counter at the shop, Kayak was provided directly at the beach after payment. Kayaking lake taho was a great experience considering the very clear water and good weather conditions.
