You have to do this once if you are a frequent visitor to Tahoe in the summer time. Yes after about an hour your pretty much done and ready to do something else. But if you you also got a float and adventurous people with you, well the fun has just begun. It's a nice way to see the area... More

This was the best part of our Tahoe Vacation. My husband and I took a sunset cruise with Captain Steve that we will never forget. It was 2 hours long, which was the perfect amount of time in my opinion. Water and snacks were on the boat, and we took our own little cooler of beer to drink on board.... More

Very enjoyable trip across Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay. Lots of photo ops for the teahouse and Vikingsholm. Grabbed an upholstered seat in front below the wheelhouse. Breezy and cooler than on land, so bringing a jacket advisable.

We are so happy we chose to take the Safari Rose Champagne Sunset Cruise! The yacht is historical & beautiful. It is a two hour cruise w/unlimited champagne, wine and beer plus wonderful appetizers. It is not overly crowded & the service was perfection! We had beautiful views of Emerald Bay, the lake & the sunset! It was such a... More

Our family went out with Captain Steve on a four hour trip and had a splendid time! There were five of us, ranging in age from 12 to 65. My two granddaughters had a blast riding in the tube behind the boat, swimming, etc. (The smiles on their faces will forever be pleasantly etched in my memory). The boat we... More

Six of us were fortunate enough to visit Lake Tahoe last week and it was nothing short of an incredible trip. The weather was 85 and sunny everyday, it wasn't too crowded and we went on some amazing excursions. Between climbing Mt.Tallac, visiting Calaveras Big Trees State Park to see the majestic Giant Sequoias, to doing a ropes course on... More

Water skiiing, tubing, swimming, sight seeing and cliff jumping were all packed into an adventure filled morning that delighted Mum, Dad and the 4 children (ages 6-14). Captain Steve was knowledgable, friendly, accommodating and looked after all our needs. With water, sodas and snacks on board we weren't in need of anything except some sunscreen. Laughs abound ... we'll certainly... More
