Enjoy fantastic views of Lake Tahoe from the air as you soar hundreds of feet above the surface of the water! On a parasailing ride from South Lake Tahoe, fly like a bird above the lake at a height of 200, 350 or 500 feet (61, 107 or 152 meters). With an experienced crew, you’ll enjoy an exhilarating and safe experience as you gaze down on Lake Tahoe’s crystal-clear waters.
Showcasing beautiful Fallen Leaf lake, Cascade Lake, Taylor Creek, and Pope Beach, this tour heads to breathtaking Emerald Bay. Surrounded by granite cathedrals and fed by Eagle falls, the lake's only true bay is named for its emerald green waters.
Starting at South Tahoe Airport, this 30 minute tour first embarks to Emerald Bay, then south along the mountains over Cascade Lake, past Mount Tallac, and over the shoreline of Fallen Leaf lake. Head west over Glen Alpine Creek, with Glen Alpine Falls below, climbing towards Pyramid Peak, at an elevation of 9,984 feet! The area is scattered with myriad lakes and waterfalls. Fly over Lake Aloha and past Horsetail Falls, dropping nearly 500 feet. The tour concludes by flying over upper and lower Echo Lake before returning to the airport.*Please note: While the lakes are always present, seasonal snow and rainfall, as well as time of year, affect the size of waterfalls in the area.
Explore Lake Tahoe by kayak during a 1 hour rental. In an easy-to-paddle single kayak, go wherever you want to go, traveling from the marina in South Lake Tahoe to popular lake locations like Emerald Bay or hidden coves and beaches. Paddle fast if you’d like some exercise, or just float leisurely along, soaking up the magnificent mountain views.
Get out on the water with a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) rental on Lake Tahoe! Have fun in the sun and get a workout as you paddle along the shoreline to nearby beaches, coves or even the casinos. Stand-up paddling is easy to learn and fun for the whole family, and is a great way to enjoy Lake Tahoe's stunning mountain views from a different perspective. Choose from a 1-, 4- or 8-hour rental.
