We randomly walked into this place and decided to reserve a kayak for the following day. They took our reso, and set our 'show up' time. Easy process. Great service. They give you a dry bag and helped us in and out of the kayaks. Super fun.

Sunset kayak tour out of Tahoe City with our tour guide's Luke and Greg was AWESOME - this definitely is a MUST of things to do in Lake Tahoe!! Our arrival was late due to the parking in Tahoe City being a bit tricky but once we were able to navigate around by popping in the store-front and asking the... More

I had a hair-brained idea to circumnavigate Lake Tahoe in a kayak which I planned for September just after Labor Day, and managed to talk a friend into traveling with me. We planned a 5 day lodge-to-lodge trip, and worked with Tahoe City Kayak to rent the kayaks and manage the pick-up and drop-off locations. The nice thing is that... More

We had a GREAT tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area's history and geology. He was also a lot of fun.

I had two 16 year old girls that had never paddle boarded before. They took an hour lesson and loved it. The instructor was fantastic and the girls had a blast. I would highly recommend this company. The only drawback was the lesson started at 8am.

Tahoe City Kayak & Paddleboard provides the best on-the-lake lessons and tours, as well as friendly customer service. We launched from Sand Harbor Beach, which is on the northeast (Nevada) side of Lake Tahoe. Adam was our kayak tour guide and, on a different day, Andrew was our standup paddleboard instructor. Both Adam and Andrew are excellent instructors and guides... More

I was overwhelmed by the inventory they keep. They have just about everything and are very knowledgeable. I learned so much that I did't now before.

We had a coupon for a discounted sunset kayak tour. The tour was fantastic, discount or no. Our guide Lisa took us on a scenic route and provided lots of information. And the sunset was gorgeous.

We waffled about where to rent our paddleboards and kayaks from--so glad we made the choice--these guys are truly the best! We called the day before (a couple days before is even better when reserving boards and kayaks)--but we met them at the beach the morning of and they had excellent equipment, great gear and knowledgeable people to assist.

For 80 dollars we had 3 hours of double kayak. They provide us also one dry bag (super useful!). Guy from shop took for us the kayak near the water, help us and suggested to go to a restaurant near the lake. It was an awesome sunny kayaking day.
