Splash back in time with one of our classic-style Old Town canoes. Canoes are perfect for relaxing and exploring the sights. This small-style canoe is wider than traditional styles and offers much more stability. Our canoes can be easily paddled by 1 guest or enjoyed by as many as 3 participants. While these vessels are not suitable for those who wish to jump out and swim, they are perfect for paddling along the shoreline and enjoying the beautiful Lake Tahoe landscape.

Please Note: Canoes are always subject to tipping. All participants must be willing and able to swim proficiently to take part in this activity.
