We hired the boat with captain Steve and had a blast. 4 hours of the best fun we've had in ages, it was well worth it. The kids had a fantastic time on the inflatables going at warp speed(we tried it at a more relaxed speed - (hilarious videos made). We enjoyed the snorkeling and I even got to try... More

Steve was awesome. He gave us a historical tour around some key areas AND pulled my kids around on the tube for an exciting adventure.

Two friends and I recently did a Los Angeles to Long Beach comprehensive tour of California. The main part of the tour was with a well known and reputable tour company; however we added some extra time at the start in San Francisco and Los Angeles so we could do some additional things that we wanted. Our evening on this... More

What an absolute pleasure to explore the water with Lake Tahoe Boat Rides. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and taught us so much about the history and environment; he answered all of our questions. He was so accommodating to all of our needs and a true expert. I would recommend this service to anyone visiting Lake Tahoe. My only regret... More

"Lake Tahoe Boat Tours", is perhaps, the very best way to see the Lake. Captain Steve, who should be requested by name, has thoroughly researched the history of the lake. His presentation is detailed and very entertaining. This is a private boat tour, so it's on the expensive side. The price varies by 2, 3, and 4 hour tours. We,... More

The experience of owning a boat without having to buy one. Staff was great and took the time to explain where to go and how to safely operate the boat. Took wife and dog out for an hour trip to Emerald Bay, smiles on their faces so worth it!

We booked a 2 hour sunset cruise for our party of 4. This was so much fun. Captain Steve took us out to Emerald Bay. He was so knowledgeable of the lake and everything on the shores. We learned so much about the history of the lake and the people that that made that history. In addition to that, the... More
