“Beautiful Sunset trip on Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

My wife and I went out with Captain MJ (Matt) and his assistant Liz and had a terrific time for 5pm Sunset cocktails. The wind picked up in afternoon and made the waters choppy but the Wild Goose II is a very sturdy boat and cut through the lake waves with ease and made the trip extremely comfortable. MJ and Liz are full of knowledge of the Lake and make the 2 hour trip a relaxed and fun experience. We shared with 4 other people (total strangers and know friends) and had a blast. The views are spectacular. Since it was a sunset cocktail trip, the drinks (water, beer, wine, spirits) were consistently topped up and blankets available for anyone who wanted one. The boat has seating for about 6-8 people outside and has sitting room for about 8-10 inside. The boat itself is magnificent.

“Captain Matt and Steve are the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

We took a late afternoon cruise across Lake Tahoe. The Wild GooseII is a gorgeous boat. We enjoyed the cocktails and scenery. Steve was very informative about the history of the homes along our route. We even had an opportunity to see "The Thunderbird" boat, Steve says it's never out so this was quite a treat.
We will definitely book a cruise with Captain Matt and Steve again.

“The BEST of Tahoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2013 via mobile

This is one of the best parts of our annual summer Tahoe trip. We have been going out with Matt and Steve for years. They run a fantastic operation with a classic Grand Craft. Recommend a lunch cruise to West Shore Cafe with your whole family or the sunset cocktail cruise with adults only. Not to be missed.

“Wonderful Way to See Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

We took the evening cocktail cruise on the Wild Goose II out of Tahoe Vista. Captain Matt and his deckhand Steve provided a very enjoyable trip aboard the Wild Goose II accross Lake Tahoe to the Thunderbird Lodge and then along the shoreline of Incline Village. We learned a lot about the rich and famous at Lake Tahoe, beautiful scenery and a very pleasant and smooth ride for two hours.

The Wild Goose II is a beautiful reproduction of a wood Chris Craft. Made of Phillipine mahogany, seats 12 very comfortably.

We have been coming to Lake Tahoe for years but never experienced the lake in this wonderful style. Highly recommend.

“This is a great way to see Lake Tahoe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

What a way to see Lake Tahoe! Experience the Lake the way the Rat Pack did, in the replica of the very boat they strutted their stuff on. Capt'n Matt is the best, knows all about the Lake! He actually carried our daughter as a bride with us to her wedding at West Shore Cafe! We thank Matt and are returning for another adventure & tour in Sept. You will not be disappointed!
