For a leisurely one and a half hours we cruise around 23 miles of Big Bear Lake Shoreline and learn about its history and just enjoy the fantastic summer weather on Big Bear Lake.

We really liked the intimate size of the Queen. It was very clean. No bathroom facilities or snack bar but you can bring snacks and drinks on board with you. The narrator and captain is Chris, the owner who was very knowledgeable about Big Bear Lake in an entertaining manner. Only downside was the seats on the main deck are... More

Last year this tour outfit supported an outing on the lake for real estate professionals, our Big Bear friends being in that industry. The tour was very pleasant, the tour company accommodated a band and a bunch of happy realtors. Very enjoyable.

If you want a Disneyland Ride on the Lake, take the Big Bear Queen Tour on Big Bear Lake, Ca. with Captain Chris Bellows. What Fun!! I’ve taken the cruise before, but every time it is different. He knows all of the History and the Ins and outs about the area. We went by Mel Brooks’ brother’s house and he... More

Our friends who live in the area suggested that this attraction was worth it (and it was). The boat itself is a little dated but sitting on the top deck gave one a wonderful view of the lake and its surroundings. The captain of the ship was quite entertaining and informative. Other boats would pass by and wave. It seemed... More

The tour of the lake was well presented by Captain Chris. He was well informed and communicated all interesting points of the lake. A well spend hour and half, however, I strongly recommend that you use the bathroom before boarding as he does not have facilities on the boat. Great tour ....

Our family of 5, including 3 teenagers, thoroughly enjoyed our trip around Big Bear Lake. Captain Chris is so knowledgable about the area and it's history. Having grown up coming here to snow ski and now returning with my family as an adult, I had no idea of the rich history of the area. It was fascinating to learn about... More

We stumbled upon Captain Chris and the Big Bear Queen by accident when our other tour didn't get our reservation and the boat was full. Boy did we luck out there!! The trip with Capt. Chris was a great learning and discovery experience. Capt. Chris's knowledge of the lake and surrounding areas is extensive and he gives the history of... More

I can only comment that I wanted to take my disabled spouse on the Big Bear Queen. I called ahead to ask if the boat was wheelchair accessible. My call was greeted by a recording that said the Captain would call me back as he was probably assisting someone else on a call. I left my name and phone number... More
