My brothers & I had a fantastic time aboard the Woodwind II ! The craft is a 55-foot-long, twin-hulled sailboat (a catamaran) that can hold plenty of passengers (I think up to 50). Luckily when we went, there were less than 20 other guests, so we had all kinds of room to soak in the sunshine and fresh air as... More

It has been a marvelous summer in Tahoe as always . This year we started a new tradition the fireworks on the lake Safari Rose experience! The process is simple easy, convenient and accommodating. We traditionally go on the sunset cruise so knew what to expect but they even made it better on the fourth. So, now we are committed... More

This was the best bit of our Tahoe visit. The crew were friendly and informative, the drinks were good value and the tranquility of the experience was second to none. If you want to escape the slight madness of Tahoe South, then come on this cruise. Lying out on the front of a catamaran, in the sunshine with no engines,... More

it was an extremely windy day. The captain held the boat steady and gave us an excellent cruise. The food was very good and the Bloody Mary's hit the spot. The on board staff were great. We learned so much about the lake. Woodwind helped us out when we had issues getting to the cruise. Our bikes broke down. They... More

I highly recommend this cruise. We took the 11am, 4 hour cruise, with lunch provided. It was informative, relaxed, and enjoyable from start to finish. We were picked up at our hotel on time by their shuttle service. Lunch was plenty for all, which consisted of both steak & chicken kabobs, rice, salad, fruit, and brownies. Coffee/Tea/Ice Tea provided. Alcohol... More

My fiance and I thoroughly enjoyed our Sunset Champagne Cruise on the Woodwind II! However, if you are looking for an actual "sight-seeing" tour, this isn't it. I found this to be a more "R&R" and "Look at the lovely surroundings" and "take lots of breath-taking pictures" kind of ride! But that's what we wanted so we loved it! I... More

We went out on the sunset cruise July 18th and were told wine, beer and champagne plus hot and cold appetizer were included. Hard liquor would be at the cash bar. The trip to Emerald Bay was incredible as was the crew. The problem was the cheap selection of red and white wines, plus the appetizers was just horrible. Please... More

We have a second home in South LakeTahoe and were recently entertaining house guests. We took the 4 hour sightseeing cruise and everything was amazing except the food. Surely they can do a better job on the food. The food was way below the standard of any quality restaurant. The yacht was a 5 star and the food is barely... More

I have been going to Tahoe for over 50 years and have taken every boat ride that South Lake has to offer. The Safari Rose is the best experience on the Lake! For the past three years, I have enjoyed the crew, the history, and the best four hours exploring the west shore of the Lake! The barbecue lunch is... More

Went on the Safari Rose 2 hr. sunset cruise on a Tuesday late afternoon relaxing cruise and had a GREAT time. Staff (and guests on board) were very pleasant. Wouldn't recommend it for young kids....they would be bored, but this 59 yr old couple certainly did enjoy it. The 1959 classic wooden boat was cool to be aboard and the... More
