These types of trips are hokey by nature, however, the dinner cruise featured great food and a good band. We even danced! The views from the boat are very lovely and you the photo ops are amazing.

My husband and I visited during Labor Day week of September. We took the 11:30 tour of Lake Tahoe. Excellent tour guide on September 3, 2014. We had a beautiful day with sunshine and clear blue skies. Ask for discounts on tickets; we got the AAA discount. Boat was full for this tour, but not crowded. We had room to... More

Our dinner was better than we were expecting ! Our server was very pleasant. the two seating take a bit longer than is comfortable - especially once the sun goes down - it can get cold & there is not a good place to get out of the wind, other than in the room with the band (which was loud... More

As part of a larger group, this cruise left before sundown. Dinner was served right away and was delicious. Once chow was out of the way, it was time to go to the upper deck and enjoy the evening. The lake was spectacular. And this was is one of the best ways to really see it. This three deck paddle... More

We chose the 11am 2-hour cruise, and shared a fish & chips lunch and some drinks while chatting with new friends. With spectacular scenery all around, it was hard to pay sufficient attention to the narration and the brief video of underwater discoveries. Our destination was the fabled Emerald Bay, and it was simply gorgeous. We had some difficulty getting... More

They did a really good job getting everyone on board, probably about 150 people. We were a group of about 60. Reasonably priced full bar. Very picturesque cruise with good narration. They had a decent band inside both before and after dinner. The food was good and service for that size group was good. Only complaint, bathrooms need a really... More

My husband and I took and afternoon cruise because we were concerned with missing daylight on the evening cruise. It was absolutely beautiful. After seeing Emerald Bay from the road, we wanted to see it from the bottom and we weren't disappointed. Most of the negative reviews involve the food at dinner and the dwindling daylight on the sunset cruise.... More

We found the menu choices and food excellent on our dinner cruise. The servers were attentive and the food was prepared well. We ordered the steak dinner and it was excellent and prepared as we requested. After dinner the views from the observation deck as the sun was setting were beautiful. This cruise is an exceptional value.

We were picked up at the hotel and driven to Zephyr Cove. After a short wait we were able to board. They started off by taking photos, just like on Royal Caribbean. Luckily we expected for the second seating for dinner so we were able to see the lake and sights while the sun set. If you were to have... More
