Booked a short tour with Captain Troy. We had a great time, got to see many things we would have missed on our own. Highly recommend booking in advance-gets crazy here on the weekends!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Lake Tahoe with Captain Troy. He has an engaging personality and he truly does have a wealth of knowledge about the lake and its history. A highlight was a visit to historic Vikingsholm in Emerald Bay, but the entire cruise was incredible. Thanks Troy - we wouldn't change a thing!

If you only do one thing at Lake Tahoe, this is it. Great views of the lake and its beaches. Captain Troy was extremely helpful. This is the best way to see the lake in all its beauty.

Forget driving around the lake, a boat tour with Capt. Troy is the ideal way to explore Lake Tahoe. Capt, Troy was a great host, very personable and knowledgable. The boat was spotless and very comfortable. We did a three hour tour and all 5 family members agreed that it was a highlight of the trip and we'd all sign... More

We wanted a shortened version of the sunset cruise which wasn't really that easy to book online. Troy returned our phone call within minutes and was very flexible with his scheduling. We were worried that it would get too cold after the sun set, so we cruised from 3-5 pm in early October. The wind was brisk, but Captain Troy... More

If you want to just go and have a great time on a Lake Tahoe, you can’t go wrong with this private tour! We did a sunset tour during our September trip to South Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Time boat was comfortable, roomy and clean, and you couldn’t ask for a more welcoming or knowledgeable captain. Captain Troy is personable... More

We saw beautiful scenery and were given great tips on places to eat and visit. Captain Troy was helpful, knowledgeable, and courteous. He helped us into the boat and out. It made for a pleasant activity for two handicapped individuals to enjoy. He brought chilled water to drink and there is a bathroom on board.

We had an amazing time with Captain Troy. He as friendly and knowledgeable about the lake and the area. We called the night before and he responded immediately and was able to book the time we wanted. We also asked at arrival if we could add time if we wanted to see more and he was good with that too!... More

First, I would like to thank Captain Troy for an extraordinary tour. Our group was definitely a difficult task to take on with 3 small children. I commend Captain Troy for accommodating us with ease. He was extremely helpful and great with the children. He called us a little ahead of our arrival time to make sure we found the... More
