Nice trip around the lake on a makeshift paddle wheeler. The captain had some interesting stories and we learned a lot about the lake and it's history. Beautiful scenery and a generally fun hour. Definitely the best way to see the lake and surrounding community!

Tour area from mock sternwheeler type boat around Lake from LAV: Lake Arrowhead Village Hard seats & no shade for upper deck spaces OK food & bar service. Only for summer, spring & early fall. Very busy for summertime. Boat can use improved seating for guests alone.

Lake Arrowhead is a unique community located in the San Bernardino mountains at an elevation of 5100 feet above sea level. At that elevation it guarantees the year round resident a wide diversity of weather conditions despite the fact that one is living in southern California. The Arrowhead Queen is a sixty seat mock paddle wheeler that completes the tourist... More

Captain Nick knew a lot about the lake and history of events. Unfortunately, there is always the idiot heckler aboard, interrupting the tour, asking the most inane and nonsensical questions....our good Captain simply tuned him out. Buy your $16 tickets early, as this 50-minute cruise always sells-out fast. Get a window seat on the port side(entry) and you'll be able... More

Liked our guide, he was funny and told good stories. Disliked the fact that our group was not the only one on the boat. Also felt a little like a Hollywood Stars tour...I liked the history of the Lake but couldn't care less who lived in what house.

Some friends took this ride and said we missed out. My wife and I had to watch from shore which was beautiful too.

We did this cruise on a whim while waiting to check into our cabin. We were pleasantly surprised as we set off on our cruise. Captain Craig was very knowledgeable about the lake and he had many interesting stories to share about the history, people, and incredible houses on the lake. The tour takes about 50 minutes and takes you... More

An cool way to spend an hour out on the lake. Lots of area and resident history is narrated by the captain as the boat takes a leisurely loop around the lake. If you have access to a boat, maybe you don't need to do this. But if you don't, this is kind of a no-brainer. Get on the lake;... More

I like the boat driver who explained Lake Arrowhead history. It was fun to be on the boat. 50 min tour was not bad for the price. I wished that I'd be able to tour some of the nice houses. =)
