Sand Harbor Tours

Sand Harbor Tours offers guided tours and paddleboard lessons. 

2022 Season

For the 2022 season there has been a change in our operating permit at the park.   We will be offering guided tours out of Sand Harbor with van shuttle options to help you gain access to the park when the parking lot reaches max capacity (which it does by 7:30am most mornings).    We will not, however, be offering rentals at our Sand Harbor Location.

We have a second location at Tahoe City’s “Commons Beach” that will be offering rentals, if you would prefer to rent instead of taking one of our Sand Harbor tours.    There is plentiful, free parking in Tahoe City, and no chance that you won’t be able to access the beach area (unlike Sand Harbor).   We will also offer Sunset Kayak tours, lessons, and several other paddling activities in the Tahoe City location.

Come explore the wildest, most undeveloped shoreline that Lake Tahoe has to offer. With hidden beaches, secluded coves, white granite boulders, and warm sand, the East Shore is the place to get away from the roads and hotels. Most of the East Shore is public land, but inaccessible by car.

Sand Harbor State Park is very popular and has limited parking. During peak season and holidays (mid-June through mid September) the parking lot often reaches max capacity within 30 minutes of when the park opens its gates at 7AM. Arriving at or before 7AM is always a good idea. Please note there are two entrances to Sand Harbor State Park; one for general vehicles and one for BOATS ONLY. Please go to the south entrance general parking to avoid being turned around by the parks service (unless you are also bringing your own boat). We recommend that our customers arrive no later than 7AM on during the peak months of summer.

If the day of your paddle we are experiencing inclement weather and are forced to shut down beach operations you will receive a full refund. However, if we continue to run tours on that day we will hold you to the reservation. Please check weather conditions so that you may plan accordingly.

We have this policy, and provide this information, in hopes of making your day smoother. Early arrival is crucial for anyone going to this park. The popularity/crowds of Sand Harbor State Park is something beyond our control.  We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you on the beach! We also have our Tahoe City location, which is an easier experience overall.

CANCELLATION POLICY:  We have a 24 hour cancellation policy.   If you cancel or no-show less than 24 hours from the day of your paddle, you are still financially committed to your reservation.
