  • Chevron down Will I see fish?
  • While it is not every day that we see fish, beavers and otters, when we do it is generally in the early morning hours or during one of our eco-tours.

  • Chevron down Will I get wet?
  • Our clear kayaks are incredibly stable and guests tend to style much drier during their experience as opposed to the common sit-on-top kayak. However, with any recreational water sports activity you are subject to getting wet. 

  • Chevron down What should I wear?
  • Light layers are best recommended. Hats, Sunscreen and Sunglasses are always a good idea. Do wear shoes that can be kicked off and removed easily as you will be required to enter into a few inches of water prior to entering the kayaks.

  • Yourself and a camera! Please note: Electronics and valuables should be kept at home or in a safe environment. Clearly Tahoe does provide dry bags however, we are not responsible for any lost or damaged items.

  • Chevron down Do I need to know how to swim?
  • No. Guests will not be required to swim as part of the described activity.  Clearly Tahoe provides US Coast Guard approved life preserves as well as lifeguard certified guides.

  • Chevron down Is there an age limit?
  • Clearly Tahoe does have a strict age limit of 5 years and older for all clear kayak activities. 

  • Chevron down Can I bring my dog?

  • Chevron down Is it customary to tip our guide?
  • Our guides work extremely hard to prepare and facilitate all of our clear kayak tours. While it is not required to tip, any gratuities are greatly appreciated by the team.
