Full Moon Kayak Tours on Lake Tahoe

Deceptively small through the lens, full moons over Lake Tahoe are enchanting.

It seems as though we turn into early birds to enjoy those spectacular summer sunrises over Lake Tahoe, or night owls as we stay up late to enjoy every last drop of daylight in the summer months. Well, if you’re looking for a rare opportunity to experience Lake Tahoe at night, how about on the water under a full moon? Don’t miss these enchanting evenings with Tahoe Adventure Company!

There are still three more full moon dates for summer, so be sure to reserve your spot soon!
