Get an up close look at Lake Tahoe with a kayak rental, which allows you to paddle across the water at your own pace, admiring the stunning mountain scenery or searching for hidden coves and beaches. With an easy-to-maneuver single kayak, you can paddle as fast or as slow as you wish to enjoy an outdoorsy workout or to simply relax. When booking, select a 1-hour, 4-hour or 8-hour rental period.
Single kayak rental in South Lake Tahoe
Explore Lake Tahoe at your own pace in a sit-on-top kayak
Find out-of-the way coves and pull up on the beach to relax in the sun
Paddle to popular lake locales like beautiful Emerald Bay
At the rental shop in South Lake Tahoe, you’ll receive a safety briefing and quick lesson before hopping in your single, sit-on-top kayak and setting off across the water.
Paddle across the lake at your own pace, pushing it fast if you want a workout or going slow if you just want to soak up the idyllic alpine scenery. Travel along the shoreline to avoid the boat lanes, and perhaps go in search of tranquil beaches and coves.
Depending on the rental period you select when booking (one, four or eight hours), you may even be able to paddle all the way to Emerald Bay, one of the lake’s most scenic locations, known for tiny Fannette Island that sits in the middle of the bay—Lake Tahoe’s only island. (If you’d like recommendations on other places to check out on your kayak, just ask the staff at the rental shop.) When your rental period is over, return the kayak to the marina.

Everything went on smooth.
Too bad we have to reserve with weeks or days ahead otherwise there is no attraction available.
