Clearly Amazing!

"Great location, friendly guides, with lots of interesting facts about the local area. Definitely something different from normal kayaks with the clear bottom!"

It was like scuba diving above the water!

"I can't imagine a better first kayaking experience than the day we had with Clearly Tahoe. Jeff and Kelsey are wonderful hosts and their clear kayaks are so cool! Being able to look down between your feet and watch the fish swim under the boat was a special experience."
