About Clearly Tahoe

Clearly Tahoe was established in 2016 as not only the first clear kayak company on Lake Tahoe but the first in the north-western United States offering guided tours in completely transparent kayaks.

We strive to offer a luxury full-service recreational experience to our guests from the moment you call to book your trip. Clearly Tahoe provides everything that our guests should need during your experience including but not limited to small coolers with complementary waters and granola bars, dry bags and even sunscreen!

Our tours are designed for all ages (5+) and skill levels looking to explore the beautiful Lake Tahoe area! Choose from a shore 1.5 hour tour to experience the depths and clarity, look for beavers and bears on our eco-adventure or relax and enjoy a romantic stargazing experience under the night skies with he illumination of LED lights surrounding you.

All Clearly Tahoe lead guides are held to the highest standard and are required to be Lifeguard, First Aid, and CPR certified. This is for the safety of our guests so you can focus on enjoying your time on the lake. 

We pay very close attention to the wind and weather when scheduling your clear kayak experience and provide a full refund in the event of any cancellation due to wind or unfavorable weather conditions on the lake. 

Our small guide-to-guest ratio ensures a great quality experience for everyone that goes on our tours. Relax and enjoy the full surroundings of Lake Tahoe both along the shoreline and below the surface!


All of our tours and rentals include delivery, set-up, life jackets, paddles, and simple on-beach instruction. We also provide dry bags and small coolers containing water and snacks!

We always have our eyes on Lake Tahoe! We are committed to keeping the lake pristine and work with several local groups to survey the lake on a daily basis. Ask a guide how you can get involved!

No experience is necessary. We like to keep things family friendly! Children 5 and over are welcome on any of our normal clear kayak rentals and tours.

About Our Kayaks!

Our Kayaks are perfect for a trip out on Lake Tahoe!

They are flat on bottom which gives them superior stability making them extremely safe. Also they made out of the same material as the aircraft canopy on fighter jets which allows for incredible visibility. Currently you can see through Lake Tahoe’s water up to depths of 65 feet. 

We generally recommend that you ride as a double so that you can take turns paddling and taking pictures. This allows for a much more leisurely experience! However if you would like to cruise solo anyone 12+ may do so as well. 

We equip all of our kayaks with buoys for extra safety as well as small coolers containing water and snacks for you to enjoy while on Lake Tahoe!
