Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your own way to the kayak rental facility near the intersection of the Truckee River with Lake Tahoe. The staff outfits you with all the necessary kayaking equipment, including a sit-on-top-style kayak built for one person.

You can choose to paddle out on the lake in any direction. Lake Tahoe is one of the deepest lakes in the United States and the largest alpine lake in North America, measuring 12 miles (19 km) across and many more miles long. It is recommended that you stay close to shore to avoid the motorboats and jet skiers that zip around the lake.

Take in the granite boulders and towering sugar pines that ring the lake, then return to your starting point on the Truckee River to end your 3-hour rental.

We had a great time. The kayaks were fine and the Tahoe Kayak folks were awesome. We were new to kayaking, so they told us how to paddle and how to be safe. Views were lovely. Next time, I want to try their Sand Harbor location. Also, be aware: you will get wet :)
