Kayak And Standup Paddleboard Rentals (click for location)
No experience necessary - Free instruction!
There is no better way to experience the incredible beauty of Lake Tahoe than from the lake itself. We provide open-deck and closed-deck kayaks from Ocean Kayak, Necky, and Perception. The open-deck (sit-on-top) kayaks are popular with beginners and enjoyed by experts alike.
Experienced paddlers have the option of renting traditional closed-deck touring kayaks, both singles and doubles, if you can convince us that you have had appropriate self-rescue and partner-rescue training (i.e., use of paddle float and T-rescue techniques). We also have touring paddleboards at select beaches for those who have exceptional balance and wish to put in some miles while standing up.
Rental rates apply to all locations:
Timber Cove, Vikingsholm, Baldwin, Pope and Nevada beaches

Open-deck kayak rentals include life vests, paddles, backrests, and basic instruction. Closed-deck touring kayak rentals also include spray skirts, bilge pumps, and paddle floats. Wet suits and dry bags are also available at an extra charge.
Cash and Credit Cards (No AMEX) accepted at all locations. Please bring an ID with you when you come to rent.
