Overall rating

(10 reviews)

We decided to go on that particular day (in the Winter) because the weather forecast was good for sunny skies and warmer than average temperatures. Only 8 people showed up for the boat ride, so we had almost a private cruise with the captain and his mate sharing history and stories for 2 hours. It was a perfect day with no wind, the lake was smooth reflecting the clouds, trees and mountains onto the lake. We had a lovely time and made some good memories for our Wedding Anniversary week. My husband and I are glad we decided to go on this tour. We live in Sparks, NV.

Book the tour! Ours got bumped to the sunset tour because of technical issues but it was the best thing that could have happened! The views with the sunset were incredible

Excellent informative cruise with great crew and captain So much to see and experience Go outside on boat if weather allows

Jim was a great guide, full of great info and fun facts of the area. Great professional photographer!

So beautiful! And the captain and deck crew were so attentive, and funny!
