Since Lake Arrowhead is private this is really the only way to see around the lake unless you live there. The captain/guide was friendly and told us all the history and points of interest on the lake.

For a visitor, we did not find to much to do at Lake Arrowhead. The "Queen" was definitely the highlight of our visit. We had a entertaining, enthusiastic and funny ship's captain who did double-duty as tour guide. Learned a lot about the history and residents of the Lake and it was fun to be out on the water. Recommended.

If you go try to get Capt. Craig! He made the tour not only informative but fun! (Guys got jokes) LOL. I took my Mum on a tour of the Lake and Capt. Craig gave us great history of the lake and the surrounding area.

Veterans Day ride. Boat holds 65 inside only. Follows shores around Lake as captain tells the Lake's story. Interesting, pleasant and fun for the 50 minutes it takes to go around. Kids get to steer some as parents take pictures. All in all a fun leisurely trip work the money.

Captain Nick kept us entertained throughout the 50 minute cruise around Lake Arrowhead. The scenery surrounding the private lake is absolutely beautiful.Captain Nick is full of knowledge about the lake. On our cruise, he had a little co-captain, Captain Gene. He enjoyed "steering" the boat for a bit! Very nice, peaceful cruise.

Smelly diesel engines were choking our group. The guide offered interesting information. Good way to feel the smallness of the lake and also see some expensive homes.

Fun activity touring the lake alongside the shore (almost all 14 miles of it) in a comfortable little boat with an entertaining guide. Told the history of the lake and its inhabitants while passing by beautiful lake shore homes. Saw geese, ducks, coots,and a bald eagle.

This attraction was very good. The paddle wheeler was clean and in good shape. The tour of the lake took a little over an hour. The pilot knew all the history of the area you would want to know. Pointed out the people's houses, whether founding of the lake or celebrities how had second homes there. He did a very... More

We decided on taking this cruise/boat ride when we had a couple of hours to spend in Lake Arrowhead Village. Our guide grew up in Lake Arrowhead and had great info on the area. We had a great time!
