Enjoy all the pleasures of boating, with none of the hassle. Our 3rd party captains* are eager to show you the sites on Lake Tahoe’s most luxurious charter boats. Choose any boat from our top-of-line rental fleet and add a captain at an hourly rate. You’ll be taken to historic sites such as the Thunderbird Lodge and the “Tea House” in Emerald Bay, or take a peek at the lakefront mansions of the rich & famous. These guided Lake Tahoe tours all offer a waters perspective that’s truly unique. Book early for holidays and special events, which may include birthday & wedding parties, photo & sunset tours, on-water picnics, or any other group style outing on beautiful Lake Tahoe.
