On the Lake | Top 5 Activities

Stand Up Paddle boarding

It’s not just Emerald Bay, there are tons of places all around the lake to rent boards and hit the water. Check out Sand Harbor Beach in North Lake Tahoe for that signature boulder view.

Lake Cruises

North or south, there are many types of boats to tickle your fancy and give you a fish eye view of the lake. Try the Woodwind II, a twin hulled catamaran out of Zephyr Cove, or the M.S. Dixie II, a Mississippi paddlewheel, and the largest boat on the lake.

Hit the Beach

There are a lot of stunning beaches around the lake. Most charge a $10 fee for parking, and all spots will fill up fast in the summer, so get there early. We like Meeks Bay, Lester Beach at DL Bliss State Park, and Thunderbird Cove, which is a secluded hike-in beach.

Tahoe Thunder High Speed Boat Ride

Departing from Action Watersports of Tahoe, the Tahoe Thunder is an unforgettable high-speed ride to Emerald Bay aboard a high-powered speed boat.

Parasailing and Jet Skiing

Multiple marinas offer a new perspective to see the lake and surrounding mountains from either high up above or skimming across the waves.
