My daughter and I want to go paddle boarding and did not know where to go. We saw a lot of kayaks and paddle boards go by our hotel so we decided to walk down the beach from our hotel. We arrived at The Beach...More
This was a good simple kayaking experience. Nice friendly staff get you started. We spent 2 hrs, went to the island, walked around, then over to the southern edge of the bay. Found a nice sandy spot to stop at.
Get there EARLY; we arrived...More
We rented a double kayak at Nevada Beach with our little dog. The guy helping us was totally fine with our dog coming with us (in her life jacket of course) and recommended we put down a towel for her so she doesn't slide around...More
We went to the Vinkingsholm location and it worked out just fine. We took the long hike down to the bottom and were hoping to get a paddle board but they were all gone already even though we got there early! We settled on going...More
We wanted to kayak in Emerald Bay..such a picturesque setting. Kayak Tahoe was our choice of rental company because of its location at the bottom of the Vikingsholm Trail. We arrived at the Vikingsholm parking lot at 8:45 am because we’d read enough reviews about...More
We rented a double kayak and paddled our to Fannette Island and hiked up to the Tea House ruins. The short paddle across was easy. You probably only need to rent the kayak for an hour, but we rented it for two hours to be...More
We rented 2 doubles last week with 2 adults/2 teens and paddled from Baldwin to Emerald Bay, to the Tea House Island. It was a long paddle 1-5pm, but worth the trip. Along the way we saw Eagle and Osprey nests. The bay is amazing...More

We rented from the South Lake Tahoe location. We got 1 single kayak and 1 double kayak. The whole experience was simple and quick. The people working were helpful and got us out on the water quickly. Would definitely rent from here again.

April is ski season and there could be snow on the ground at lake level. The ski resorts are all open through April at least. So, call the kayak company to check for sure -- they may not operate until Memorial Day. The Lake... More
April is ski season and there could be snow on the ground at lake level. The ski resorts are all open through April at least. So, call the kayak company to check for sure -- they may not operate until Memorial Day. The Lake is at 6000 feet or so -- so definitely bring your warm clothes. (We've been having a drought so you could get lucky and it could be warm.) But Lake Tahoe is beautiful and fun year-round.
