Had the best time! I was terrified going because I’m afraid of the water. Beyond happy that I was able to experience my first time kayaking with such a great tour guide! Eric was very friendly and informative. I would highly recommend booking with them! There is 8 girls total that came with us and they were very accommodating to our group. From the shuttle to the tour I highly recommend!!

By far this is my newest favorite thing to do in South Lake Tahoe! We did the star gazing kayaking last night. It was so beautiful looking at the star filled sky and even had some shooting stars!! Taylor was the perfect guide! We saw little fish, big fish, bull frogs and even Betty the bear came to visit! We definitely want to do the Eco Lily pads kayaking tour next!! Kelsey you’re awesome  I will be sending lots of guests to you to have an experience of their lifetime!

What a great experience! My wife has been kayaking a lot and this was my first time. We both agreed the tour was the way to go instead of just renting kayaks. Thankful we did the tour. We had a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the history of the area. The views were amazing and the clear bottom kayaks definitely added to the experience.

Amazing morning spent with my family!  No better way to appreciate the 77 feet of clarity in Lake Tahoe!  We started by meeting Geoff at the Bean Bar coffee shop near Roundhill!   We signed our paperwork and were off! Geoff was a great host and brought us to Cave Rock to start our adventure!  Our guide Eric, was so knowledgeable about Tahoe and the views through the kayak were unbelievable!  We recommend you don’t miss this adventure!  We’ve had several of our friends take the trip since!

Absolutely recommend! Geoff and Kelsey made this such an easy and fun experience- called last minute and they made it happen, even in the off-season! Couldn’t be happier with the clear kayak and picture perfect lake background. They thought of everything- environmentally friendly water, sunscreen and granola bars provided. Definitely put this on your list of things to do in Tahoe- slightly more expensive than a regular kayak but 110% worth it!

Nothing but amazing customer service with this place! I had to leave a message to book and got a call back (missed the call) and got a text. Everything from scheduling to getting dropped of at the shuttle stop after finishing our tour felt like a friend or family member was helping me. I really appreciated all the detailed info I was given by Kelsey and she really took her time to answer my questions. I unfortunately don’t remember our tour guides names but both were great (one was from our home of Sonoma County)! Very friendly and upbeat. Even the shuttle driver that picked us up had amazing energy and was friendly. I can’t wait to go back and check out the night tour. We did the 1.5 hr tour which was perfect for first time/beginner customer (with children). Thank you all!

First of all, if you’re going on the early morning one, bring a sweatshirt! And if you have a boney butt or just like comfort, bring a small cushion to sit on in the kayak. This tour was worth the price and the getting up early without a doubt. The kayaks are great and easy to navigate. Our tour guide (Ryan) was a dope tour guide. He knew a lot about the lake and its surrounding areas. All around a great experience.

Lake Tahoe is literally Heaven on Earth and what better way to experience it than in a clear kayak! With Eric as our guide, we had a wonderful experience. They include boxed water and granola bars on the boat and a guided informational tour along the East shore. It was a unique and memorable experience spent with my husband (we shared a boat). We recommend going in the morning. It’s cooler, calmer and not as crowded. Next time, I would love to try the night tour!

Clearly the best(pun intended). If you want to have a really unique and memorable Tahoe experience, this adventure its a must. Get the guided tour, Geoff and Kelsey can show the places and details, that we would have missed if we’ve been on our own. Thank you.

We had a great time with Clearly Tahoe this afternoon. I booked last minute, and all the regularly scheduled tours were full, so the reservation office opened another time slot for us. Amazing customer service! They also offered complimentary shuttle service so we didn’t have to fight the insane traffic at the beach. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide (Taylor). He made sure we were comfortable, taught us some interesting facts about the lake and made the experience so fun!

This was such a fun way to be on the lake and see different views – literally! Looking below you at the creatures and underwater landscapes, plus learning fun facts from the guide. Would highly recommend!
