Lake Tahoe Cruises

Tour the jewel of the Sierra by boat

The best way to explore Lake Tahoe

You’ll never forget that first view of Emerald Bay. Cool, mountain breeze in your hair and snow-capped Sierras in the background, it’s a little bit of magic. And the best part? With 72-miles of shoreline, your cruise around Emerald Bay is really only the beginning.

From turquoise coves studded with granite boulders to golden sand beaches tucked beneath evergreen pines, a scenic boat tour of Lake Tahoe promises all kinds of unforgettable moments.


Get sun-kissed in the Sierras

With four unique seasons, summer in Lake Tahoe is something to be treasured. There are only a few months a year when temperatures soar and the beaches, marinas and waterways around Lake Tahoe come to life.

Get the most of your Sierra summer with a boat tour of Lake Tahoe. Depart from South Lake Tahoe on a scenic cruise of Emerald Bay. Skirt along the shoreline, getting up close views of Vikingsholm Castle and the lake’s only island with the mountains towering above.

On the way back from Emerald Bay, you’ll cruise past some of Lake Tahoe’s best beaches and favorite local hangouts. Check out the Camp Richardson marina from the water and the lakefront houses of the Tahoe Keys, all with views of Mt. Tallac and the Heavenly Ski Resort in the background.

Make an evening out of it, on a dinner cruise or sunset sail with a cold beverage in hand. Enjoy the glassy morning waters, or climb aboard to enjoy the warmth of the high noon sun. Along with the best views in the basin, your cruise comes with light beverages and snacks. Enjoy the ride from the bow or chill on the deck with your friends. It’s a perfect blend of sightseeing tour, relaxing day on the water and sunset happy hour!
