Make your own way to Sand Harbor Beach in the morning to meet your guide. In the summer, the parking lot fills up early, so be sure to arrive on time.
Follow your guide to the launch point on the beach. Your guide provides a safety briefing, kayak, life jacket and paddle, then shows you how to maneuver your boat. When booking, select either a single person or 2-person kayak.
Your guide leads you out on the waters of the lake, sharing stories about Lake Tahoe's past as you glide by the historic Thunderbird Lodge, which was built in the 1930s for the heir of a wealthy San Francisco family, and now is part of Lake Tahoe – Nevada State Park.
Float past secluded, private beaches, and stop for lunch at a hidden inlet. There you can jump into the water for a swim as the day warms up.
Your tour ends in the early afternoon with return to Sand Harbor Beach.
