I agree with everyone else. We had Captain Steve and he did an excellent job. We had 10 adults and three children in between Captain Steve and his first mate Justin we were well taken care of. Everyone had a great experience. I would recommend this highly.

Lake Tahoe Boat Rides is a great company. When I called to make the reservation I spoke with Captain Steve. I've actually learned there are two Steve's working for the company. Anyway Steve spoke to me on the phone for a good 30 minutes telling me all about the boat tour and what there was to do in the area.... More

We chartered the boat with Captain Steve for a 4 hour Monday afternoon tour around south Lake Tahoe. Our group of 6 really didn't have a set plan where we wanted to go or see and Captain Steve provided an amazing afternoon of fun. The boat was clean and comfortable as well as an on-board toilet. Sunshade was excellent for... More

I took my family to Tahoe for a week and this was the best activity for the week. Captain Steve was our guide and he took us on an informative trip around the lake and provided us with very interesting facts. He knew everything about Lake Tahoe!! There were six of us and the boat was very spacious and clean.... More

Had a bunch of family together to take an evening Cocktail Cruise and it was very nice. We happened upon an evening where they were hosting a winery, so we got to do some "wine tasting" as well. The food was lovely and the hosts were very nice. Overall a very good event at a very good price point.

although it was a cold Spring day the boat allowed us to be indoors in a warm environment. The views from the large windows were outstanding and at times breathtaking. The tour, which lasted for over two hours, was informative and the tour guide speaker was eloquent and at times even poetic. Tasty drinks and food were offered for purchase.... More

My friends and I loved our private boat ride with Captain Steve! Informative and relaxing- this was one of our favorite activities from our trip. We laughed, we cried, we enjoyed a nice beverage on the water. Sit back and take in the view as the sun sets. Definitely a must if visiting Tahoe!

We used Lake Tahoe Boat Rides in July 2014 and and a great time. We reserved an afternoon with Capt. Steve. The afternoon was a great mix of tour and water sports. We spent the first 90 minutes getting a tour of the east side of the lake which was interesting. Then we headed over to the west side of... More

Went out with my spouse + her family for the sunset cruise w/ capt steve. Steve was terrific, knowledgeable and safety oriented but very fun loving at the same time. He was ready and eager for any activity request we might throw at him. My only regret is that we didn't do a longer tour...

My family and I booked a tour with Lake Tahoe Boat Rides during our stay at South Lake Tahoe. We expected our boat trip to be wonderful, and it went above and beyond our expectations. There is no better way to experience the great Lake Tahoe then on its waters. Our captain, Steve, was great the entire time. He did... More
