Description: Come aboard our Lake Tahoe Charter boat for an up-close sightseeing...
Come aboard our Lake Tahoe Charter boat for an up-close sightseeing cruise. From the well-known Emerald Bay to Cave Rock and along lakefront estates, beaches, and landmarks around the lake, your captain will cater the experience to meet the needs of your group. Make sure you bring your camera to capture all the tranquility of Lake Tahoe. If it's in the boat it's included and we have all needed equipment, plus a few surprises. Honestly, every tour is different depending on the needs of our customers. Many of our tours are planned along a course of landmarks and scenic sights, but we are flexible based on the special interests of our guests. We will stop to experience several landmark sites, ideal water sport areas and secret locations. The best part of the tour is the ability to get off the boat and go explore. If you would like to build your own customized tour we would love to work with you.

The boat was clean and he had beverages, blankets, and toys for our toddler. We felt very safe with Troy... More

I highly recommend Capt Troy and his powerboat if you are interested in getting out on Lake Tahoe. We thought about renting a boat ourselves, but none of us are boaters, or know the lake well. I think to rent a boat was around $125/hr, Capt Troys rate around $140. So for $15/hour you can relax and enjoy the ride.... More

Troy is outstanding, personable and customized a two hour motor boat ride just for our family. Our adult kids were not interested in a 4 hour large Paddle Boat ride and this was perfect for us. Troy knows his stuff and Troy couldn't have been more accomodative.

After comparing to other tours, this seemed like the best deal for the price. Were able to pick a time and place that worked for us and where we wanted to go. Very flexible and Capt. Troy told us lots of interesting stories about the places we saw and was a generally nice guy. Awesome trip, well worth the little... More

We road aboard the Tahoe Queen; a true paddlewheeler on our tour of Lake Tahoe. We took the early afternoon tour (although evening tours are available with meals). The trip starts at South Lake Tahoe and heads north to Emerald Bay; the most picturesque spot on Lake Tahoe. And Lake Tahoe has no shortage of beauty no matter where you... More

We have been in Tahoe for a week and today was our last day here. I was surfing the net last night and found Tahoe Lake Tours online. I decided to e-mail them to see if they could accommodate us today, Friday, Aug. 10, 2012. Captain Troy wrote back to say he could so my husband and I decided to... More
