Check the Forecast

Get a complete wind and weather forecast for Lake Tahoe before you go. Check the daily Lake Tahoe marine forecast provided by the National Weather Service out of Reno.

Water Temperature

Lake Tahoe water is always cold, even on the hottest day of summer. Cold Water Shock can cause immediate swim failure, leaving you physically and mentally incapacitated. Cold Water Immersion can cause numbness and a loss of mental faculties in less than 3 minutes and leads to hypothermia.

Always wear your life jacket to keep your head above water, and to keep your body warm and  insulated.

Changing Weather

Weather can change rapidly and create dangerous paddling conditions. Watch weather and marine forecasts and plan your route to be able to get off the water safely and quickly in the event of high waves, rain, snow, or lightning.

IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, CALL U.S. COAST GUARD AT (530) 583-4433 OR 911
