California Tour of Historic Lake Tahoe West Shore in United States North America

Explore the historic western shore of magnificent Lake Tahoe on this 2 1/2 hour guided tour.  Paddle out on crystal clear, snow-fed water while hearing colorful stories of the west shore's most prominent landmarks and important personalities.  This is the perfect tour for families and visitors looking to learn more about this treasured landscape on an easy paddle near Tahoe City.  

Lake Tahoe is a land of beautiful contrast and dramatic offerings.  With the highest concentration of Ski Resorts on the West Coast, the snowy winter months are a popular time to hit the slopes and visit the lodges populating the soaring mountains surrounding the lake.  Summer is a time of boats, hiking, and late evening beach swims under a canvass of bright California stars.  Even the different sides of the lake offer sharply different experiences for the discerning vacationer - concert venues, sky-rise hotels and casinos of the Nevada shoreline contrast sharply with the national forest, rustic cabins, and state parks found on the western and northern Californian side.  

This 2 1/2 hour tour starts in the morning in Tahoe City near the main marina before the winds pick up and the summer crowds hit the water.  After outfitting you with an appropriate Kayak, life vest, and paddle, you will launch into the vibrant blue water and paddle out along the coast behind you expert, local guide.  You will hear stories of Tahoe before the casinos, back when early settlers first built cabins and began carving out their own homesteads along the scenic lake.  Hear how Teddy Roosevelt failed to turn the are into a national park how developers along the southern shore began to build a resort for wealthy vacationers and residents.  Hear the stories of the truckee river and the Donner party, and why the differences between to the two sides of the lake exist today.  

When you are finished, you will head back to Tahoe City to return your kayak and head to lunch from one of the many local restaurants and cafes available to you.
