“You will NOT regret doing this!”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

Experiencing the lake by shoreline or even from atop of a mountain is one thing. However, to truly experience the majestic beauty is to get on the lake! What’s the best way to do this? I suggest you charter a boat with Captain Steven and Dan! They customized our ½ day tour with them based on what we wanted to do. Their only itinerary was to show us the best time possible! They are knowledgeable about Lake Tahoe history, and we learned lots of interesting facts. They made sure we had the maximum amount of fun during our four hours while making sure everyone was safe. They had all the equipment we needed for the watersports we desired. We just had to show up at the dock! The boat was beautifully maintained, even had a bathroom! Don’t even hesitate booking time with them; you won’t regret it for one second! At the end of our vacation, we asked everyone what was their favorite part, and hands down it was the time we spent on the beautiful Lake Tahoe with Captain Steven and Dan!

“I highly recommend this cruise!!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Our hotel suggested and booked this cruise and we were not disappointed! They picked us up and took us to the pier. It is a beautiful boat, that tours most of the lake, including Emerald Bay and Vikingsholm. A delicious grilled lunch was served and there was plenty of food (thanks to our crewman and chef, Stacie). The tour lasts four hours and you really get to enjoy the lake. Drinks are available for $$, but if you check-in on facebook while you are there, you get a free Mimosa! The bloody mary's from bartender Sam were delicious but Spicy!!!!. Be sure to bring a jacket..it can get chilly and also can be windy, but you can always go inside and still have a fabulous view! If you only have 1 day in Tahoe, this would be the way to spend it.

“Great Family Fun!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

We were in Tahoe for a family reunion in July 2013. The boat ride was a highlight of the trip for all ages. We highly recommend it for everyone. The lake is beautiful and it was nice to be able to see everything at your own pace.
