“You have to take this lake tour...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2010

For the best and most comprehensive lake cruise/tour, you have to take the Big Bear Queen at the Big Bear Marina. The boat is guided by Chris who is a font of information about the lake. The tour takes 90 minutes and covers the entire lake. Chris knows the history and people who made Big Bear what is today. The tour is well worth the cost of the tour. There are bigger tour boats, but none better.

“Enjoyed our summer weekend in Big Bear Lake, CA”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2009

While spending a couple days at Big Bear Lake, CA, we opted for the lake tour with Chris on the Big Bear Queen at the Big Bear Marina. [--] Chris is a one-man show and manages to be the captain, the tour guide, plus the ticket taker! He gives an informative and entertaining tour of Big Bear Lake, with wonderful tidbits of history and gossip!

There are no restrooms onboard, which was not a problem as the tour is only 90 minutes long. You can ride comfortably inside the open-air "paddle wheel" boat, or opt to go upstairs and sit topside.

We paid $15 for the senior rate, and I believe adults were $3 more.
