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 surrounded by the captivating Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, where alpine forests tower above the lake's turquoise blue waters. In the summer, it truly is a tropical mountain paradise.


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

03/ Why Lake Tahoe?
04/ 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 ensure your day will exceed expectations.

We encourage you to bring whatever food or beverages you'd like, a swimsuit 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 much to offer a sailor! Depending on the weather, we're flexible. We can keep the sails hoisted or find a pristine anchorage for a refreshing swim. Wind on the Lake picks up in the early afternoon, so sessions will stick to this timing so we can take advantage of the weather. 

We'll meet at the Tahoe City Marina at 2:00pm and be back to the dock by 6pm.



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 are eager to learn more or have already crossed an Ocean, Captain Ben welcomes all levels and will likely share his ins and outs of sailing on Lake Tahoe. We place a huge emphasis on experiential learning and invite you to share what you're most interested in practicing so we can tailor the experience to you.

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 to use a "reef-friendly" sunscreen to help keep Tahoe Blue.

2. A hat that will stay on in the wind.

3. A swimsuit, towel, and long-sleeved 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 also have a cooler with ice 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 windlines on the water. Polarized lenses work best.

7. A light rain jacket in case of rain and a warm jacket in case it cools off in the evening.
