Booked the dinner cruise for our group of 6 adults and one toddler. Overall an Excellent Experience.

If you have the time, add this to your list of "must see's". Make sure you get there early so you can choose the best seat, for what ever your interest. If its cold down below, if the sun is shining then top deck.

Beautiful scenery; nice narration. Enjoyable, calm ride. Negative: boat appears to alway be very crowded. Difficult to find a spot outside if you prefer outside seating with a view.

We took one of the "lunch" 2-hour cruises over to Emerald Bay. The day was nice and sunny and there was still some snow on the mountains. And of course, it is Lake Tahoe one of the most beautiful places on earth! While on the...More
