December 2015 | Tahoe Summer Adventures

Excitement after the snow

Lake Tahoe’s amazing scenery is the perfect backdrop for outdoor enthusiasts seeking adventure even long after the snow has melted. Crystal blue waters, the rugged Sierra Nevada Mountains and lush alpine forest all combine to create a summertime playground that is unmatched in North America. Whether you are a fan of water activities, prefer to stay dry or enjoy both, there are plenty of exciting ways to heat up and then cool down while staying active. Here are some of the best ways to enjoy a Tahoe summer.


South Shore, South Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe Water Sports copyWith 10 convenient locations, Tahoe Sports is the largest rental company on the south shore. The family owned and operated business specializes in all things water sports related, from boat rentals and water skis to kayaks and paddle boards.

With the largest fleet on the lake, Tahoe Sports offers a selection of boats including pontoon boats for relaxing, power boats for wakeboarding and water skiing and even a large party boat for groups who want to spend the night on the lake in style. All boats are fully stocked with everything you need for the day and come with Coast Guard approved safety equipment.

One of the most exciting and popular ways to enjoy the beauty of the lake is on a Jet Ski. While most rental companies require riders to stay within a certain area, Tahoe Sports allows you to explore the vast water world on your own. If you are looking for the adrenaline rush of a Jet Ski but prefer a little history to go along with your day be sure to book the Emerald Bay Jet Ski Tour. Learn about Fannette Island before disembarking your watercraft and taking a tour of Vikingsholm Castle, one of the finest examples of Scandinavian architecture in the western hemisphere. After exploring the castle the tour visits the scenic Eagle Falls before heading back to port.

Tahoe Sports also offers the best kayaks, paddle boards and paddle boats for those wanting to power their own watercraft.
