Kayaking Meeks Bay to Emerald Bay Lake Tahoe

GPS Track for this Route.

You can put in your kayak at Meeks bay.  If you park along the highway, it isn’t too long of a portage to reach the beach.  From there, it is a 7 mile paddle (one way) into Emerald Bay.  Most of the route is quiet with the exception of the entrance to Emerald Bay – where power boaters enter and exit rapidly.  You can exit your kayak at Lake Tahoe’s only island: Fannette Island.  You can explore the stone house at the top of the rock.  Also, along the route, there are a number of rocks which you can climb and jump into the lake.  They are of varying height – perfect for all skill levels!
