What you'll do

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.

Andrew was an excellent tour guide and kayak coach. He explained technique very clearly and his knowledge about the history of Tahoe was so amazing to learn about. I felt like it was a fun history lesson while enjoying such a positive and friendly host and beautiful views of Tahoe.

Great adventure on the lake with Alex as the guide. Learned new things about the history of the lake. Make sure you are dressed appropriately. We did the sunset tour. The wind kicked up and it got chilly; I wished I'd had my light windbreaker with me because the waves had gotten me a bit wet too. All in all, a great experience and I would do it again!
