“Not a ton of fun for the price...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012

If I weren't from the area it would have been a great trip. Considering the price for the trip was rather steep it ruined the fun! It is a basic drive through Tahoe to the Key's where you enter the water, go around the lake for a very short time and head back to town. It would be great if they offered a change of scenery for those of us who love Tahoe but want to see more of it!! The Captain was INCREDIBLE, the trip was just a little blah.

“Great time on Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

My family and I come to Tahoe quite often and on this trip we saw the ducks in town for the first time so we thought we would give it a try.
We had a great time and learned more about Lake Tahoe that ever before. We have done some of the other boat trips before and they are all too long and can get boring by the end, this one was just the right length of time.

“Fun for the family.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2011

This was a great trip for the kids and adults alike. Captain Michele was a wonderful guide giving "local only" information on any topic. She shared various stories and insight of Lake Tahoe during the trip. The land/sea "duck" car was a great kick for my kids. Excellent sights, excellent company, and excellent music.

“Lame Duck”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2011

This was a very Lame duck 1 hour tour, the tour guide was lifeless, not much color or fun. The tour just goes through town, and then a short out and back ride into the lake. Save your money and find another attraction.
