We booked directly from Blue Wave Cruises, not another site as it was only $60 pp directly. Our hotel shuttled us to the marina. The boat staff was friendly. I think they booked too many people because some had to stand on the front and it was cold. The buffet consisted of pre-made veggie, deli meats, and cheese trays likely... More

Justin, Melissa and Rocky made our voyage across the late to Emerald Cove totally enjoyable. They tended bar and fed us, entertained us, and even made fun with the rug rats running around. This is a worthwhile afternoon adventure!

They cram 49 passengers on this thing. My wife and I got on and walked through the levels of this small shabby boat and directly off again. The seating was mostly cramped little plastic lawn chairs shoved against the walls and each other. You must get to know the person next to you intimately in two hours. The tour included... More

When you are the only boat cruise running in beautiful Lake Tahoe I guess you don't really have to perform. Due to a dry eu get the other bust companies can get on the Lake so these guys are the only ones. First the positive. Nice boat. 70' yacht. Small and cozy. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking around the lake... More

Cruise on a 70' yacht from Zephyr Cove to Emerald Bay & back...2 hours round-trip. We took the afternoon cruise that included "light" appetizers (cheese & crackers, carrots/broccoli/cherry tomatoes with ranch dressing, spring salad in a "help yourself" setting, fyi). There is a bar on board, 2 drinks per person (alcohol or non-alcohol) are included in the price. Staff is... More

For those of you who would like to do a lake cruise in a little more stylish craft than the two large paddle-wheelers operating on the lake, this may be your preferred option. It is a 1966 classic 70' yacht, complete with teak decks and a Persian carpet in an enclosed fantail (fireplace included). The literature says it can hold... More

My husband and I spent a fabulous day on the lake on the Blue Wave Cruise's two hour boat tour. This is the way to get a good feel for the geography and beauty of Lake Tahoe. The crew could not have been more eager to please and friendly. The lunch was simple but the make-your-own deli sandwiches hit the... More

Small boat with very informative and friendly crew. Nice light lunch and drinks. Great way to see the mountains and lake from a different perspective. Great value for money.

From beginning to end, the Bleu Wave Cruise on Lake Tahoe was absolutely fantastic. Our ticketing agent, Nichole, was so lively and upbeat, she set the mood for a really great time with everyone going aboard. Our boat captain, Justin, was an exceptional tour guide. He carried the mood set by Nichole with his own upbeat personality, giving us a... More

We took a lunch cruise with our daughter and family back in June. The cruise included 2 drinks and a sandwich bar lunch. The boat was small so we had great service. We were able to move around a lot to get great pictures of Emerald Bay
