- When is the best time for kayaking on Lake Tahoe?
Early morning is the best time for clear kayaking while the water is calm and glassy.
- Should I book a Single or Double Kayak?
Double kayaks are best recommended for the most relaxing and leisurely experience.
Please note: Age and weight restrictions do apply. Please see our Company Policies for more information.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- What should I bring?
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.
- 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.
- Is there an age limit?
Clearly Tahoe does have a strict age limit of 5 years and older for all clear kayak activities.
- Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, no. Dogs have a tendency to panic in this type of unique environment therefore, for the safety of both you and your best-bud, we do not permit pets in the clear kayaks.
- 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.
