Clearly Tahoe Rentals

From the Sand Harbor Nevada State Park


Clearly Tahoe Rentals at Sand Harbor

Clearly Tahoe offers a variety of full-service rentals within the Sand Harbor Nevada State Park. Visitors of the park can choose from one of the largest and most diverse rental fleets on Lake Tahoe and enjoy the iconic rocky shoreline and turquoise blue waters right off the beach!

No transportation or add-ons necessary, Clearly Tahoe offers everything our guests should need during their time on the water from US Cost Guard Approved PFDs, paddles, dry bags and even sunscreen! Our incredibly hard-working and dedicated team will even help carry your boat down to the waters edge and provide a brief safety lecture and lesson for no additional fee.

At Clearly Tahoe, safety is our #1 priority so while we do offer a wide array of vessel options, select vessels do have limited paddle regions and a maximum rental duration.

Paddle at your own pace and pay for only the time you use at Clearly Tahoe! There is no need to commit to full-day rentals for a discounted rate. Our hourly rental rate drops for each additional hour so you can return your vessel when your finished enjoying the beautiful views!

Clearly Tahoe rentals are available for walk-up daily within the Sand Harbor Nevada State Park. Advance reservations are temporarily unavailable at this time. We highly recommend arriving early to obtain parking and park entry. While the gates do open at 7:00am, they can commonly fill to capacity by 8:00am. No walk-ins from the street, drop-offs (including ride-shares, Uber or Lift) will be available.

Highly recommend. Beautiful area to spend the entire day on Lake Tahoe at the Sand Harbor Beach at Nevada State Park. Booking was easy and priced fairly. Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We had an excellent experience and will be repeat customer.

Excellent Location!

Looked all over for clear kayaks for my group and came across Clearly Tahoe and I'm glad I did. Went with 3 x double clear kayaks for 2 hours and our experience was awesome! From start to finish, the trip was so much fun. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible. We LOVED kayaking to bonsai rock, hanging out, and taking in the views of north Lake Tahoe. The convenience of the location, parking area was clean, restrooms nice made it all amazing. We were able to safely leave our shoes at the rental area and we had complimentary dry bags. Would recommend and come back next time!

The staff was top notch in my book!

The staff was top notch in my book! I took a kayak single and explored around the coves at Sand Harbor. It was amazing, not my first time and definitely not my last. Perfect day, thank you Clearly Tahoe Rentals.

Organized Service

My wife and I are both experienced kayakers but the staff at Clearly Tahoe Rentals made sure we knew what we were doing, where we were going, and ensured us there was plenty of time to get down to Hidden Beach and back. They had our boat ready to roll when we arrived and got us checked in and on the water quickly.

This place was amazing!!

This place was amazing!! We had a group of 5, and the staff here was so flexible and helpful. We rented clear kayaks and then the “party float” for a few hours. The staff members went above and beyond, we cannot recommend enough. Absolutely one of the highlights of our trip!

Easy Check-In

Knowledgeable and very helpful staff. Check in was quick and easy. Just a quick talk about water safety and we were good to go. Better to go early in day before wind kicks up because the wind makes it harder to kayak. I rented a 2 seater for me and my kid and we both had a great time.

Clear Bottom Kayak

Had a wonderful time here with 9 of my friends for a bachelor party. The staff were all extremely friendly, safety-oriented, and helpful with any questions we had. The kayaking experience was great and the clear bottom kayaks added a whole other dynamic to the already great experience. Would definitely recommend.

My experience was AMAZING

My experience was AMAZING, this was my first time on a kayak and I loved it. All rentals are affordable. I wanted the all clear kayak but you could only rent those with a reservation online, so I ended up getting a clear bottom kayak which was just as beautiful. But the all clear kayaks are definitely cool looking and an experience everyone should have!

Good Prices

Rented kayaks here with some friends while on vacation. Good prices and the service was top notch! Kayaks, paddles and life vests were all in good condition. The staff was friendly, flexible, accommodating and hard working! Thank you to everyone there who helped make our vacation fun and memorable.
