So sorry I booked this trip for my husband and I. The crew never warned us upon boarding that the upstairs outside deck in the back of boat was for smokers. We sat there before takeoff and made ourselves comfortable and after about 15 minutes a bunch of young kids in their twenties came over to us and started smoking... More

The Safari Rose boat cruise on Lake Tahoe was terrific. We sailed on a very windy day and the lake was choppy....but the crew made sure we had smooth sailing. Took us to an area across the lake protected from the wind and served a delicious lunch....and the Bloody Mary's were very tasty!! I highly recommend this boat cruise...you won't... More

The crew was friendly and the entire experience was enjoyable. From the moment I booked the cruise, the staff kept communication open with updated texts. I highly recommend Safari Rose.

The Safari Rose is a converted yacht originally built for 3M in Minnesota; rather miraculously, it has ended up taking people from Zephyr Cove near South Lake Tahoe, across the lake to Emerald Bay for lunch, and then back. The yacht really is luxurious and it is nicely kept, with both outdoor and indoor areas. I thought the trip was... More

Everything about this cruise was top notch. They provided champagne, wine, and soft drinks at no charge all other drinks were cash only. They also provided bite site appetizers which were delicious. The captain was awesome and gave some information when appropriate. Made sure the event was memorable.

A highlight of our Tahoe trip. The yacht typically holds up to 60 people, but the night we went we were two of 16 guests. The small group allowed us privacy and space, but also the full attention of the fantastic bar tender (Deb) and all the cold/hot apps we could eat (all delicious and fresh). The evening was windy...

We loved this cruise! The food and drinks were good and plentiful, the staff was friendly and entertaining. It was not crowded like the big paddlewheel seems. There was a shuttle from our hotel on the California side to Zepher Cove where we boarded. There is covered seating on the first deck with bar and bathrooms, and there were tables... More

The historic yacht provided a comfortable cruise across Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay and back to Zephyr Cove. Lunch was delicious kebabs, both chicken and beef, they offered you one of each! Potato salad, fruit salad and brownies rounded out the meal. The view from the upper deck was spectacular - we had a gorgeous day. If you're sun sensitive,... More
