Tahoe Paddle Sports

This program has been planned with consideration for the health and safety of our participants, staff, and volunteers with protocols for screening, PPE, and social distancing.  Please visit our Return to Play Guidelines page for the most up to date information on Achieve Tahoe protocols for COVID-19.

Flat-water paddling is one of the greatest equalizers and a fun way to enjoy the summer. We offer kayak and paddle board lessons and tours in North Lake Tahoe. Those new to paddling should join us for a lesson before joining a tour.

Reservations by request for July, August and September 2020. To request a reservation, please email [email protected] 

$150 per lesson or tour for 1-2 people. Additional people $50 each.

We request that all participants bring a care provider with them to all summer programs.  Care providers will be expected to assist participants with anything that requires close person to person contact.
