Enjoy the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe with the performance of a recreational kayak! Our Clear Bottom Kayaks are designed with an entirely clear bottom which enables guests to explore up to 65 feet below the surface. With a narrower design, these vessels are much easier to paddle and are permitted to explore within a broader region than our completely clear kayaks. Our Clear Bottom Kayaks are equipped with bungee storage straps on the front and back for easy storage of belongings. Note: Our Clear Bottom Kayak is not a self-bailing vessel and therefore is not designed for choppy water conditions or long distances. While these vessels can be seated for 1–2 guests, space can be tight. We highly recommend single boats for oversize guests or tall participants who wish to have more legroom.
