The kayaks were nice but the hassle getting them, not so much. Employee couldn't have moved slower if he had chains on. Took an hour to get from arrival to having boats in water. He must have thought he was on an Island because he certainly operated on Island Time. It detracted from the experience of enjoying the lake. Might be time to review staff?

We are sorry to hear you had a less than stellar experience. We pride ourselves on quality customer service and as our reviews show, this is the exception rather than the rule. We addressed this with staff.

Great day trip with John as our guide, knowledgeable, laid back. Very good with our reluctant 15 year old son. Enjoyed the trip and a swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe. Word of warning - son suffered very bad sunburn on his legs - affected for the rest of our two week holiday - use sun block and cover legs if you have fair skin! Didn't affect the great experience we had on the day though, thank you John and to the excellent booking staff.

Great 2 hour trip in double kayaks with our 6 and 8 year old. The right pace and great instruction upfront. Uneventful (in a good way), super easy and great, fun adventure!

Our group scheduled a full day of activities with Tahoe Adventure Co. that included kayaking in the morning and hiking in the afternoon. I was very impressed with this organization. When the weather was forecasted to be too windy to kayak on the lake they contacted us in enough time to discuss alternative plans that would accommodate our group of 14. Fortunately, they were flexible enough to wait until the last minute and weather turned out to be perfect. Their safety instructions and tips were excellent since we had participants with varied experience, and their info about the lake during our paddle was very interesting. The afternoon hike was spectacularly beautiful, just the right distance and challenge for our group and again the interpretive information about the forest was very good.

I thoroughly enjoyed the SUP 2 hr tour with Ben as our guide! It was a great way to explore the lake and I really appreciated Ben's knowledge of the area. Highly recommend it!
