“Lake Tahoe is a gem worth visiting over and over.”
Review of Kayak Tahoe

Kayak Tahoe
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Had a amazing mini vacation kayaking around Lake Tahoes east shore. We got there early evening just as the day vacationers were leaving. Parking was a sinch and the state park employee let us slide on the price for parking cause they only except cash. We will definitely be making this a regular trip. The hotel we stayed at on the south shore was great as well. Don't take tahoe for granted!

My husband & I took the Emerald Bay Guided Tour experience on July 12th, 2013 and it was incredible, fun and professional. Making the reservation however was tricky, don't try to make reservation by email. Best is to call them at 530-544-2011 and make your reservation then.
We will be using them again for sure, and try a different kayak route.

My 10 year old and I had a blast. On the phone the folks sounded abrasive but in person they were great. The instruction was pertinent and the gentleman made it really fun and interesting. We had a great time.

This is my fourth year renting from Kayak Tahoe. I have always rented a kayak and paddled on my own, rather than going with a group tour. Now that they have multiple rental locations, it's easy to paddle the south end of the lake at your pace, without having to reserve a kayak drop-off or pickup. I rented from the main shop, heading west one day towards Camp Richardson and east another day (depending on wind). One day, I rented from Nevada Beach and paddled towards Round Hill. Best trip is to rent from Baldwin Beach early in the am (9 or 9:30) and allow the rest of the day (until 4 pm) to paddle to Emerald Bay and beyond. Friendly staff, very knowledgeable of lake conditions (be sure to check before you head out!). They take credit cards except at the Nevada Beach location (cash only). If you happen to be in South Lake Tahoe during a full moon in the summer, be sure to take the "full moon" guided tour. I did that a few years ago, and it was awesome to watch the sun set, then the moon rise. All locations have parking, but there are daily fees to enter the state park locations.

This is really fun for the whole family. I visited the Timber Cove location first..every one at Kayak Tahoe is super nice and makes you feel confortable with the whole experience. It's super easy for a beginner like myself. I had a double kayak with my 2 year old sitting in my lap. We had so much fun we did it again at the Emerald Bay location.
