Lake Tahoe, California: it doesn’t get any more ‘hella’ cool than there.
A skiers dream during the winter months and dream-come-true for all those that like outdoor adventures during the summertime. And what is summer without paddleboarding? A joke!
That is why during my recent trip to the Best (er, West) Coast, I spent a whole day out on the water. Lake Tahoe paddleboarding had me smiling from ear-to-furry-ear!
Lake Tahoe Paddleboarding Tips
Thinking about visiting Lake Tahoe with your pooch? Yasssss – you rock🤘🏼. You are going to have a pawsome time with your furry friend. It is super dog-friendly town, and dogs are pretty much allowed almost everywhere.
If you are planning on taking Fido out on the water (as you should) there are a few tips to keep in mind.
Pack Your Dog-Essentials – towels, water, snacks, etc…Make sure you read my list of dog-travel essentials so you don’t forget your pooches stuff when prior to heading to Lake Tahoe.
Renting Paddleboards – there are a couple of paddle shops on the lake but we were told that the ‘prettiest’ parts of the lake where found in North Lake Tahoe.
Located in Kings Beach, California, we we found ourselves the coolest little rental shop; Adrift Tahoe. They have kayaks, paddleboards and canoes… and everything that you need to get out on the water. Best of all, they’re super dog-friendly and had no issues with me renting a board with my humans🏄🏽♂️.
Safety First – make sure you take your dogs life jacket! If you do not have one already, I highly suggest get one pronto. Adrift Tahoe had safety jackets for the humans, but not for me. Luckily, I never leave home without my life jacket because swimming = life and you never know when you’ll find a body of water to cool off in.
