Had a lot of fun with everyone in our group! Russ, our guide, made the experience fun and memorable! Russ was awesome and very funny too! Props to the whole staff, they were all very nice and super cool!
Very informative and knowledgeable
Jennifer_C, July 2023
I had a good solo trip, the guides were very informative but not boring. The staff lived in the area and were helpful with doing other activities in the area as well. The kayak was very stable in the water and they take great care in not scratching the clear bottom in the sand. We had people assist into the kayak. Had to call the tour early due to thunder and lightning and received a full refund. It was their policy for full refund which wasn’t necessary to me but still nice. Would recommend
Amazing experience!

Overall an amazing experience! Liam was an amazing guide providing a safe and crisp tour that provided in-depth knowledge about Lake Tahoe including ecological facts about the current Cutthroat trout repopulation plans. Also provided history of the lake, its ownership and lores of the lake.

Bucket List Item Checked Off
Katy_F, June 2023
Bucket List checked off, Tahoe Jacks took care of all the details, we just had to show up. Most memorable were the pictures taken from the guide and the stories he told about the lake.
GREAT time!

Jake was an amazing tour guide and made kayaking even more rememberable! Beautiful views of South Lake Tahoe and such a unique experience that wouldn't be the same anywhere else.
Two thumbs up!

Max was wonderful! He was a lot of fun and cared about our family’s experience. So thoughtful and knowledgeable.
Absolutely amazing...
Joyce_A, May 2022
Absolutely amazing experience!! I was traveling solo without any kayaking experiences. Lauren and Bre were so helpful and encouraging, having to tow me at one point because I was having difficulty keeping up with the group, we jokingly call it the VIP treatment :-) Being on the water really made you appreciate the beauty of the lake and the surrounding scenery. Highly recommended!!
Fun time, fabulous scenery.
Danielle_S, May 2022
The tour was a lot of fun although we didn’t cover a lot of distance. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. We enjoyed the clear bottom kayaks, it was something different.
