why lake


Lake Tahoe famous Zephyr wind!

Famous for its crystal clear water, Tahoe is the largest Alpine lake in North America sitting at an elevation of 6,225 feet. Its water is 99.994% pure and reaches a depth of 1,644 feet. Lake Tahoe is completely surrounded by the captivating Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, alpine forests, turquoise anchorages, and a mountain town vibe. In the summer, it truly is a tropical mountain paradise.


But the best part is its sailing conditions! Known for its afternoon zephyr, a steady 12-18 knot wind from the Southwest, which creates a perfect sailing playground.

Why Lake Tahoe?
What Can I Expect



Tailored to your Expectations

Whether you want this experience to be relaxing or informative, we have you covered! Feel free to relax and enjoy the view, or take the helm and work the lines. Our Captains are seasoned instructors whose patience and love of teaching ensures your day will exceed your expectations.

We encourage you to bring whatever food or other beverages you'd like, a swim suit and towel, sunscreen, a warmer layer for the evening, and a charged phone for pics!

Where will we meet and sail to?


The West Shore of Lake Tahoe has so much to offer a sailor! Depending on the weather, we're flexible to keep the sails hoisted or find a pristine anchorage for a refreshing swim. Wind on the Lake picks up in the early afternoon, hence all sessions take place during this time.

We will be meeting at Tahoe City Marina at 1:45pm each day to hop aboard and begin the sail. We aim to be back at the dock around 6pm(ish).

Who is this for?



Never sailed? All good!

No sailing experience is necessary to join! Anyone in your group can interact as much or as little as they'd like on board.

There is no minimum age for our sailing sessions. We encourage families, couples, groups, and singles to join us! 


Experienced Sailor? Welcome aboard!

Whether you've sailed a few times and eager to learn more or already crossed an Ocean, our Captains are open to all levels and keen on sharing the ins and out of sailing on Lake Tahoe. We place a huge emphasis on experiential learning and invite you to share what your most interested in practicing.

Recommended Items

Being out on the water means we are subject to LOTS of sun at a HIGH ELEVATION which can be intense! Typical summer weather is  60-80°F. The following items will make your time spent with us the most enjoyable.

1. Sunscreen! Please avoid spray-on sunscreen as these make the boat slippery/dangerous. We ask you use a "reef friendly" sunscreen to help keep Tahoe Blue.

2. A hat that will stay on in wind.

3. A swimsuit, towel and long sleeve rash guard/UV shirt.

4. Water bottle and lunch. There are plenty of places nearby to grab food to-go the day of. We will have a cooler with ice to utilize on the boats.

5. Shoes that are easy to slip on and off, as we put shoes away while on the boat. 

6. Sunglasses to protect your eyes and help you see incoming wind lines. Polarized lenses work best.

7. Light rain jacket in case rain arrives, and a warm jacket in case it cools off in the evening.
