Take in all the amazing views in Lake Tahoe.

Adrenaline-Pumping Adventures at Lake Tahoe

While you’re in Lake Tahoe, there are plenty of options to get your adrenaline going. You can rent a variety of water toys, go parasailing, or if you’re the betting type, you can check out the nearby casinos. Take your pick and find just the right adventure for you.

Rent a Powerboat

Powerboats, water skiing, and some good quality time with those you love are what Lake Tahoe is about.

When it comes to Lake Tahoe activities, one of the best places to be is on the water. For some speed and fun, rent a powerboat and spend all day out on the water. You can choose from a 21 or 24 foot Sea Ray ski boat, accommodating 8 to 13 people.

Before you head out, be sure to get the water toys you need for the day. Take your pick of:

  • Water skis
  • Tubes
  • Wakeboards
  • Kneeboards
  • Wakesurf boards

Hop Aboard a Jet Ski

Race around the vast lake on a jet ski with friends.

For some genuinely high octane fun, all you need is a jet ski. You can rent a Sea-Doo jet ski by the hour for in harbor and out of harbor fun.

The best part? It seats up to three people. Hop on and have some adrenaline-pumping fun with your friends.


Take in some incredible views from the sky while parasailing over the water.

Get some air and feel the wind in your hair — not to mention take in the spectacular views of Lake Tahoe’s crystal clear blue water while parasailing.

You’ll hop aboard with an experienced, licensed captain who will take you out onto the water, where you’ll experience a dry, effortless take-off and landing. Be sure to snap a photo of your unique perspective of Lake Tahoe.

Take an ATV Tour

Get in touch with your wild side in the Carson Valley, riding in an ATV.

If you’ve had enough fun in the sun at the lake and are looking to stay dry for a day, look no further than an ATV tour from Lake Tahoe Adventures. Climb on in the vehicle and strap in for a wild ride. The Ridge Run Tour is a beautiful 2-hour long experience through the Carson Valley Landscape.

Gamble the Night Away

While Lake Tahoe is best known for its gorgeous beaches and blue waters, it has another exciting side: the casinos. Located just a few miles away in Stateline, Nevada, you’ll find numerous casinos for live entertainment and nightlife.

Slow It Down a Little

Relax and soak in some sun while paddling on Lake Tahoe.

While some need a motor for an adventure, others are happy for a human-powered ride. If you’re looking to slow it down a little but still have fun on the water, look no further than a pedal boat, kayak, or paddleboard to rent.

Apres Adventure In Lake Tahoe

Any good adventurer knows that after a long day of pushing the limits, you need a good night’s sleep and a hearty meal. Be sure you get the rest and fuel you need so you can have fun again the next day.

Sunset Bar and Grille
For a quick bite to eat or a frozen drink, grab a spot at the Sunset Bar and Grille. You can dine on the outside deck or right on the beach beneath an umbrella.

Grab Some Shut-Eye

Zephyr Cove Resort is the perfect place to relax and rest after a long day on the water.

After a long day of adrenaline-pumping activities, you need some solid shut-eye. You can rent a private cabin at Zephyr Cove Resort. Each cabin is just a few minutes walk from the beach and marina and comes with a private bathroom, fully-equipped kitchen, and Wi-Fi.

Lake Tahoe is well-known for its beautiful waters and great beaches. Not everyone knows about all the adrenaline-pumping fun you can have during your vacation there. Now you know — which adventure are you planning to choose?
