The Clear Experience Rates
For an adventure you will never forget; it'll be worth every penny.
At a time when social distancing has become an important way of life to keep us all safe and healthy; kayaking and paddle boarding will be an excellent way to get outdoors, enjoy the clean, crisp air and explore the shores of stunning Lake Tahoe without risking the overall health of others!
Set sail on the north side of Lake Tahoe and wander freely with a self-guided transparent kayak or SUP rental. We provide the safety equipment needed for you and your tribe to float the lake safely, storage to keep your personal belongings nice and dry, as well as, some fun toys (like snorkel gear (we may discontinue the use of this shared item, but will have ones to purchase), wireless speakers and selfie sticks upon request; free of charge) to make your experience even better.
We always go above and beyond to make sure all of our equipment has been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected in between uses, but will be taking extra precautions, so all of our adventurers feel comfortable, protected and in good hands.

We also ask that you do not schedule multiple days or times to save those time slots while you confirm your plans and decide which to keep or in hopes that we will have the correct number of kayaks you are needing, but not seeing available upon booking.

Our policy is written without exceptions.
Of course, the weather here in Lake Tahoe can be unpredictable, so please be aware of the possibility of cancellation if the weather does not permit and the conditions are unsafe. In these circumstances, full refund will be given. We appreciate your understanding.
