Play On the Lake
Lake Tahoe’s beautiful blue waters are a perfect place for some summer fun. Waterskiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing, windsurfing, and even parasailing will be sure to give you a thrill.
If you’re looking for something a little more relaxing try floating around the lake in a pedal boat, or try kayaking, paddleboarding, or fly fishing for a more mellow time.
Lake Tahoe’s crystal clear waters are surrounded by silky sand beaches that are excellent for picnicking, sunbathing, or watching the sunset. Secluded hike-in spots are great to get away from it all, while some beaches host weekly concerts to get everyone together. In Tahoe there is a beach to suit everyone’s wants and needs.
Beyond the lake, Tahoe is home to many streams, rivers, and smaller bodies of water that are all excellent for fishing. Many varieties of trout can be found in these waters such as rainbow, brook, brown, golden, and the mackinaw, which can be up to 20 pounds or even larger. Others include kokanee salmon, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, catfish, perch, and mountain whitefish.
The Truckee River provides excellent whitewater rafting for a laid back or exhilarating adventure. A self-guided leisurely trip takes about three hours as the river winds through forest that offers plenty of places to stop for a snack, swim, or sunbathe. The veteran guides from Tributary Whitewater Tours can provide a more exhilarating whitewater rafting experience.
If you want an absolutely terrific, completely enjoyable, memorable, stress-free day (or half day) on Lake Tahoe, then jet boat, paddleboards, kayaks and more are the best way to go. Whether you are looking to waterski, tube or simply float a boat rental will be great. For a little more athletic challenge why not try kayaking and paddleboarding?
