What people are saying about South Lake Tahoe

After multiple visits to Tahoe we finally decided to get on the water. This trip was absolutely fantastic! The boat is stunning the views are magnificent and the crew is absolutely delightful. Charlie and Steve made sure everyone was having a great time and paid extra attention to detail. Forgive me for forgetting our captains name but he was quite the historian and pointed out places and birds in Tahoe that I’ve probably seen and never noticed. If your schedule permits, take this trip it’s worth every single penny. My only regret is not having done it sooner but I can assure you we’ll be doing it again :)

Cruise over lake Tahoe to see Emerald bay in a wonderful yacht. Included a complimentary alcoholic drink and snacks(like airplane snacks). Then they had a bar if you wanted to start a tab. The crew was friendly and had great facts about the Lake and the surrounding area. We went at sunset and it was spectacular!

Great time spending an afternoon on the beautiful lake Tahoe. Staff was very nice and well informed about the area and the history of the lake. It wasn't over crowded and the boat was clean and well maintained.

It was a great cruise. Very smooth ride, we learned a lot about the lake. Staff were very accommodating and nice. We were a group of 4 in our 50's and 60's.

Nice, relaxing afternoon cruise. Staff were great, very friendly & knowledgeable. We enjoyed it.
