Testimonials

I booked to a sunset cruise with my friends and family with Boat Tahoe. We had a blast with our captain, Zach who was easygoing and knowledgeable about the lake. He had great insight about the lake and the year round activities in places like Emerald Bay, South Lake Tahoe. And took good pictures of the group. I would definitely recommend to others.
