Amazing and Fun Experience

This was our family's first time visiting Lake Tahoe and our tour with Tahoe Paddle Sports was the highlight of our visit. It was our kids' first experience with kayaking and Anthony, the owner and tour guide, was awesome, such a fun, nice guy and very knowledgeable about the area and its history. A definite must when visiting Lake Tahoe. Thank you Anthony!

I did a clear kayak tour which i didn't know what to expect. Anthony shared his abundant knowledge of the outdoors and history of Lake Tahoe. The phone bag was a plus although I barely used it and preferred to have it out of the bag. It was also nice that Anthony was able to tow my kayak so I could focus more on the lake, mountains, and rock formations above and below the water. Highly recommend!!

It was the first time for us to do kayaking and it's so much fun. There were only 2 of us so we did kayaking mostly at our pace, paddling and just taking rest on the water. Our tour guide (instructor) was very knowledgeable and we learned about Tahoe a lot. Moreover, he took pictures of us from the sky with drone! That's one of reasons why I chose this company. I would totally recommend this for everyone.

This trip was absolutely beautiful and our tour guide Anthony was super knowledgeable, helpful and nice. We went kayaking in the past in Key West and as much as that was great, clear kayaking in Lake Tahoe is a totally different experience and was even better. Unique clear kayak lets you see all the way to the bottom right under you and ride is peaceful and very easy even for kids. We took tons of awesome pictures and had an EXCELLENT experience we will Never forget! Thank you, Anthony!
