Tour-goers will meet their guide on Tahoe City's Commons Beach 15 minutes prior to launch (2 hours before sunset). We'll paddle South towards Sunnyside talking about Lake Tahoe's History while the sun begins to sink. After an hour of paddling South we'll pause for a brief photo opportunity and then turn around for our paddle back to Commons Beach. As we near our end point the setting sun will color the horizon and glassy smooth waters to deep pinks and purples. You'll get dramatic photos and an unforgettable experience for all!
I am the founder of Tahoe City Kayak and Paddleboard and Sand Harbor Rentals, we rent and provide guided tours at two of Lake Tahoe's best beaches. I've been avid paddler for over 30 years, and have taken thousands of people out on lessons and historic kayak tours. I train every year with the ACA (American Canoe & Kayak Association) and have completed their Level 3 Instructor/Guide course. I am well versed in Tahoe's history, and also in "dad jokes." I think you'll have a good time on my tour.
