  • We’ve rented the boat last minute and we got so lucky with this one. Karen and Bryan (the captain) were very accommodating! It was only four of us, so it was perfect in terms of space. Bryan showed us all the top spots and told us a little history behind Lake Tahoe! He also let us play our music. We had a lot of fun riding the boat and talking with Bryan! Next time we return to Tahoe we’ll definitely do it again! Thank you Bryan, or as we know you, the captain :)


  • Karen and Bryan were awesome hosts! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone. They made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our time on the boat.


  • Bryan was the best tour guide! We had so much fun. Cannot wait to recommend this to our friends visiting the area.
