I have been coming up to lake arrowhead since the 1950s. I finally took a ride on the Queen. I really enjoyed it and Capt Craig was enjoyable funny and corny with a tid bits of knowledge. I would recommend the excursion and just know in the summer the weekdays are quieter.

You cannot visit Lake Arrowhead and not do the lake tour on the Queen. It is comfortable, fun and informative especially if you have Captain Sean.

Since Lake Arrowhead is a private lake, its tough for the regular tourist to get out on the water. The Queen tour was a fun and informative way to see the lake. The Captain was funny, and well informed. He knew how to handle the annoying little girl who kept asking him questions. haha. If you have not done it... More

Since Lake Arrowhead is private... this may be the only way you get to see the whole thing. The boat is clean and comfortable. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Over all I think it's a relaxing way to spend a bit of time on the water.

Our older teens weren't too sure about going on a tour boat. They were very happy they went. You get a full tour of the lake, get to ride on the water and learn a lot of interesting and funny information. I would recommend this to all ages!

Captain Shaun made our hour tour entertaining and informative. He invited questions, and our 3 kids (ages 13, 9 and 5) asked lots! Shaun shared history, as well as pointing out famous people's homes. At one point, Shaun invited all the kids to pilot the boat. He ensured every kid got a turn. Shaun had a great sense of humor... More

This was a highlight of time spent in Lake Arrowhead as we spent almost an hour soaking up history, facts, and the beauty of this pristine area. We can all dream about owning one of the fabulous houses and rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous. This is one attraction that is well worth every penny.

It was me and my wife's first time to Lake Arrowhead since we moved to San Bernardino here a couple of months back. It was like a 30 minute drive up to the Lake so it wasn't that of a big deal. Loved the European architecture that they did with the village and we truly enjoyed our time there. Too... More

We enjoyed an afternoon cruise on beautiful Lake Arrowhead in the San Bernardino Mountains. Captain Craig piloted the paddlewheeler around the lake and gave much information about the sites and homes of the famous and rich. We were provided with lots of information of the history of the lake and dam construction. The children on board were given the opportunity... More
