Captain Bryan was fantastic. He was knowledgeable but was willing too go with the flow with this family with 3 young children. Visiting Emerald Bay complete with tour was an extra special treat. We felt safe and well cared for the entire time. And oh, the scenery was to die for. Definitely a highlight of our Tahoe trip. Thanks Bryan
