“A wonderful way to pass 3 hours!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I took my daughter on a weekend mother, daughter getaway to Lake Tahoe and thought a dinner cruise across the lake would be great...and it was! Just before you get on the boat they will take your picture, and after the cruise you have the option to buy the pkg of photos (whole pkg $37.00 comes with 1 lg photo & 2 sm. photos in magnetized frames) When you board the boat they hand you a glass of champagne then you go to find your seat, take in the beautiful views, and enjoy your dinner. They do serve alcoholic beverages for an extra cost. The dinner we opted for was the steak dinner with cheesy potatoes, salad, asparagus, & garlic bread. Dessert was a very rich chocolate cake with coffee. ALL of it was wonderful! The service was nice, and the people were wonderful! There is 3 decks you have access to in order to take in the views and take pictures, but be warned to take a jacket or sweater, it gets cold as the sun sets. The total price for this dinner cruise for 2 adults $174.44, the memories it created...PRICELESS!!

“A bit pricey for a ride across the lake and back”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

It was about $20. per person and lasts about 2 hours. The boat is beautiful and in good condition. They do have food and drinks available for purchase. We did have a couple of drinks and tried the nachos- both were good. The boat went directly across the lake, turned around and came back. The brochure states that there is a glass bottom area for viewing, however when we inquired about it, they said they have permanently covered it up. The commentator was informative, however he was more interested in singing the songs he had written and talking about himself, so we were a bit disappointed over all. The boat holds approx 200 people, but had less than 100 people when we took the first trip of the day.
Parking is $8.00 however when we were there the register was broken, so we parked for free. There is a few other activities available for purchase that leave from the same area, plus a nice beach.

“Family of four, Father's Day experience.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Our first time aboard a paddle boat. The views were beautiful but we were disappointed the glass bottom was covered up and we were not informed of that beforehand. The commentator was good but the children on board were clearly bored. They need to include more kid friendly music, games, etc. The boat ride itself was quite nice but not a trip around the whole lake just across from one side to the other. For what it was I felt overcharged and wouldn't do it again with children in tow.
