Set Sail on Lake Tahoe - Private
We can go sailing on my 30 foot sailboat to my favorite spots! This experience is for 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Our typical sail is Valhalla (South Lake Tahoe) to Emerald Bay, and back. We can sail you to the emerald bay dock, where you can step off the sail boat to see the Vikingsholm, or stay on board the sail boat. Very comfortable! This is a private sailing experience for you, meaning you will have the entire boat to your party. The only rules of the sailboat, are NO stepping on the cushions. No Spray sunscreen onboard. (Spray sunscreen coats the fiberglass decks, making it very slippery and dangerous) Have as much fun as you want! Sailing etiquette highly supports tipping the skipper! Come onboard for an awesome experience! Other things to note: Weather and wind permitting: if there are thunder storms or strong winds, we can not sail. (Which you will be 100% refunded) Safety First! Your experience includes unlimited beverages, alcoholic and nonalcoholic! If you’d like to tell me your preferences after booking, I’ll make sure there’s plenty on ice. A charcuterie board is available for an additional $20. You are also more than welcome to bring anything you would like to eat or a drink on board. Please no stepping on the cushions! Pets are not allowed onboard due to safety reasons.
Lake Tahoe-Hike year round with a Local
I would love to be your Tahoe local friend and lead you on a 2 mile hike to a beautiful overlook of Emerald Bay and the ENTIRE Lake Tahoe basin. In my 23 years of living here, I have explored many of the trails and much of shoreline around Tahoe and this vantage point is one of my favorites. Also available for the sunrise, sunset, and/or moonrise! Great for groups and team building. Beginner and kid friendly too. Intermediate-level hike available too. The experience begins with a paved walk on a campground road. Then the trail turns to dirt with a slight incline for about ¼ mile until we get to the lookout point. After, we can return on a dirt trail or on the paved road or if there is time, we can choose a longer route. If you are visiting Tahoe during the winter time, the hike will most likely be covered in snow. Snow boots or hiking boots will be needed. I can bring a sled to help tow the kiddos. The hike may be weather dependent due to heavy snowfall. My goal is to make sure that you have an unforgettable visit to Lake Tahoe and that you leave with tons of photos (I will take the photos and then give them to you via your phone). We will keep our impact to the area minimal with Leave No Trace principles and choose non-peak hiking times. I am happy to try and accommodate mobility challenged/differently abled folks on the hike.

Fly Fishing is a great way to immerse yourself in the outdoors and interact directly with the environment. I offer half day (4-5 hrs) and full day (7-8hrs) fly fishing guide trips on the Truckee River. Guide trips are for anglers of all levels. If it’s your first time fly fishing we make sure to take the time to teach you the skills at your pace. We go over things like casting the rod, understanding what trout eat and of course how to hook and bring a fish to the net unharmed and then released back into its habit. You will need to provide a California fishing license for each angler over the age of 16, these can be purchased online. All trips are CATCH AND RELEASE and all inclusive with rods, reels, flys, waders and boots. (Gratuity is not included in the cost of the trip.) I have been a professional fly fishing guide for over 10 years guideing up and down the Eastern Sierra. In the winter time I am a fully certified ski instructor at Palisades Tahoe. I enjoy the outdoors and love to share that passion with others through quality instruction to create an awesome outdoor experience. If you don’t see your date available on the calendar please don’t hesitate to send a message and check availability with me directly.
