Full description
Begin your kayaking adventure at one of Tahoe’s most relaxed and accessible beaches, Tahoe Vista. A local favorite for decades, this beach provides ample parking, onsite restrooms, plenty of shade, and picnic areas. It is the perfect beach to start your self guided kayaking experience. Once you have your gear, enjoy the calm, clear waters and kayak at your own pace. Pack a picnic lunch and head to one of many local beaches that dot the coastline. Enjoy Lake Tahoe on your own schedule and kayak along the North Shore from King's Beach to Tahoe City or to Crystal Bay in Incline Village, Nevada. Explore for a half day or full day depending on option selected. As your day comes to an end, kayak back to Tahoe Vista and relax on the beach after a great day on the water.
