I had two 16 year old girls that had never paddle boarded before. They took an hour lesson and loved it. The instructor was fantastic and the girls had a blast. I would highly recommend this company. The only drawback was the lesson started at 8am.

Tahoe City Kayak & Paddleboard provides the best on-the-lake lessons and tours, as well as friendly customer service. We launched from Sand Harbor Beach, which is on the northeast (Nevada) side of Lake Tahoe. Adam was our kayak tour guide and, on a different day, Andrew was our standup paddleboard instructor. Both Adam and Andrew are excellent instructors and guides... More

I was overwhelmed by the inventory they keep. They have just about everything and are very knowledgeable. I learned so much that I did't now before.

We had a coupon for a discounted sunset kayak tour. The tour was fantastic, discount or no. Our guide Lisa took us on a scenic route and provided lots of information. And the sunset was gorgeous.

We waffled about where to rent our paddleboards and kayaks from--so glad we made the choice--these guys are truly the best! We called the day before (a couple days before is even better when reserving boards and kayaks)--but we met them at the beach the morning of and they had excellent equipment, great gear and knowledgeable people to assist. We... More

Joey and I often rent two kayaks in the morning after breakfast and cruise around commons beach area for an hour or so. That's all you really need on the calm morning waters of Lake Tahoe. Pretty inexpensive too. Brad & Joey www.VillaLaEstanciaOceanfront.com

We booked the sunset paddle on the lake and couldn't have been happier. The guides were fun and knowledgeable telling stories sprinkled with facts as well as some local legends. The kayaks were in great shape and one issue with the seat of our tandem kayak was fixed quickly. The staff in the store were also very friendly and helpful.... More

Great tour guides, very informative. Fun evening paddle to watch the evening sun against the mountains. Be sure to take a jacket and wear clothing that dries quickly
