I am just so dissapointed in myself for not having seen this as a "MUST" activity. We did this on a whim bc it didn't seem to expensive and "why not"? Right? When I think of Tahoe now, this is the experience I think of most fondly and we have been here a lot and done a variety of activities.... More

We rented a two person kayak for an hour after taking the Vikingsholm tour. What I love about renting from this location is that you can kayak around Fannette Island where you can explore the little island also. The guys are great to deal with !

We decided to kayak Emerald Bay on our vacation and we discovered that this company pretty much has the monopoly on kayak rentals, but the guys were so great and full of information of what areas to see and what to be aware of and had great knowledge of history of the area as well AND gave us several tips...

We rented SUP's and they were very generous with what they called an hour! In reality we were almost 1.5 hrs and they just charged an hour. Staff were super friendly!

Took the family up to Lake Tahoe and rented kayaks to get everyone out on the lake to experience this incredible lake. Kayak Tahoe has locations at several spots around the lake and we chose Baldwin Beach. The staff is amazingly helpful and friendly. They gave us some kayaking tips and then helped us shove off on our adventure. We... More

We took the Emerald Bay tour for about 4 hours with John from the company - a very friendly, mellow and informative guide. We absolutely loved it. Emerald Bay is so beautiful and we kayaked from top to bottom. We stretched our legs on the island, learned about the original Scottish keeper and saw a shipwreck on the lake floor.... More

Kayak Tahoe has a few different locations. We chose to use the location at Baldwin Beach, which is the closest location to launch and paddle in to Emerald Bay. They do have kayaks available in Emerald bay, but we didn't want to deal with the congestion and having to park and hike in. We arrived at Baldwin Beach around 8:30... More

The location is perfect because it was just far enough away from all the crowds but still walking distance from Ski Run Marina. The price was good and the staff was super friendly and helpful! My 2.5 yr old loved it!!!! Not to mention the quality of their equipment was great! Would definitely go back!

We rented stand-up paddle boards from Kayak Tahoe on Pope Beach and they are so friendly, helpful and top notch customer service!! My daughter had been asking to try a paddle board - so we did and what fun that was! They provided a life jacket for both of us and because she is younger than 15 years old (must... More

We debated on whether or not to rent from Kayak Tahoe due to the fact that we had never kayaked before. We decided to give it a try; loved it!! They even gave us a quick crash course before sending us out on the water. We rented the double kayak for the all day rental and had so much fun.... More
