What an OUTSTANDING experience! Captian Steve is knowledgeable, and fun, and we had the absolute BEST time. We took a private sunset cruise, and got a great education in the surrounding areas, including a stop at an incredible historical location, where we

walked amid ancient trees, and amazing landmarks. Wine and treats were abundant, and the moon was almost full. It was an extraordinary experience that we won't soon forget! HIGHLY reccomend it, especially if the moon is full!

“Excellent boat ride and very knowledgeable guide.”
Reviewed September 8, 2012 via mobile

We were visiting our son in Lake Tahoe and had a wonderful experience with Lake Tahoe Boat Rides. Our Captain, Steve, was fantastic. He told us many interesting facts about the history of the area. The boat was fully equipped for various Lake sports. We would definitely recommend this company.

“What a Crew!”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

Thanks to Clarke, Dave and Rhonda we had a very enjoyable sunset cruise. We were a small group of 14 strangers. The lake is beautiful and the scenery was great. These folks made us all feel welcomed and the snacks/drinks were great! The boat is very nicely decorated - Safari!

“One of Highlights of Our Trip to Lake Tahoe”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Four couples took 4-hour luncheon cruise on our last full day in Lake Tahoe. We almost had the entire boat to ourselves. Boat itself is beautifully appointed with comfortable siting areas and a great upper deck. We were the only ones seated up there as we enjoyed the beginning of our scenic cruise. Captain provides enjoyable narrative as we cruise along with lots of humor thrown in. Lunch was terrific: steak and chicken kabobs (grilled on the upper deck), rice pilaf, caesar salad, fresh fruit salad with a yogurt dressing and brownies for dessert. Complimentary tea and lemonade are offered as well as alcoholic drinks throughout the cruise. The boat is anchored during lunch and we all sat at the table on the upper deck to enjoy the views, the breeze and the food! We all wished the trip would never end and I would definitely make this cruise again if I come back to Lake Tahoe!

“Captain Steve is the Absolute Best on Lake Tahoe!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

We rented with Captain Steve, so glad we did. We had the most fun on his boat, he was so informative with the history of the Lake Tahoe as well as stopping at a few locations for us to check out. He taught us how to Wake board, & water ski. Also had a great time tubing. If your in Tahoe, Lake Tahoe Boat Rides & Captain Steve are the only way to go!!! Can't wait to come back:)
