AMAZING EXPERIENCE

“We had a blast. The scenery was out of this world. Guides were top notch. We came in early June and the water was a tad cold for snorkeling, but we took a dip regardless.”

Discover Emerald Bay. Set out in the morning on a paddling journey through Tahoe’s blue waters. Travel along towering mountains as they descend into the lake.

WORTH EVERY PADDLE

“It’s a long paddle, but worth every moment. You don’t realize how grand Emerald Bay is until you see it from the water. We had the whole island to ourselves.”
