Fabulous experience! A MUST do activity in the summertime!
Holly_D, July 2023
If you visit Lake Tahoe in the summer, you must get out on the lake itself! Captain Bryan was a fantastic host and got us safely around the southern part of the lake. The views are amazing and the water is crystal clear. We visited in July and the water is still pretty chilly, but not intolerable for a short swim! This charter did not require us to purchase the gas and was still $25 less expensive than other tours. Well worth the money to have someone else drive us around and also educate us on what we were seeing.

My wife and I booked a sunset boat cruise with Captain Bryan. His communication was flawless - reached out in advance to confirm, answer any questions, etc. - and then reached out again the day of the cruise. He made some great suggestions about the timing of the cruise, and which locations to visit. At each stop along the way, he shared great information, and was very sincere and genuine. He even helped us take some photos! Absolutely rate the trip a 10/10 - must do if you're in the area!
Lake fun !

Amazing & memorable sunset boat ride
Lokesh_N, July 2022
The boat ride is the best memory we had in Lake Tahoe till date. Bryan was prompt and was in touch with us via text messages. He kept everything simple and easy. The boat captain, Tim was just amazing. He kept all of us entertained through-out the boat ride. My kid loved him and wants to go back on the boat again. Everyone in the family strongly recommend this memorable boat ride.

This was a family celebration. Worth every penny. Bryan is a great caption and full of interesting Tahoe stories.
The Greatest VIP Boat Tour Experience
Laura_L, July 2020
If I were to handcraft a boat guide in my imagination, they wouldn’t have been as knowledgeable, kind and well prepared as Bryan was. The boat was immaculate, his knowledge of the Lake and the surrounding area was expansive without being overwhelming, and he truly makes you feel that you are a V.I.P. private boat for the day. I cannot recommend Bryan and his boat tour enough. It is a ‘must-do’ if you are coming to Lake Tahoe.
A must do Tahoe find

Captain Bryan gets a huge high 5! Our two hour trip could not have been better. We loved this trip and you would too!
Great time

A very fun two hours. Nice way to see the lake. And fast. The captain and his wife were very nice and gracious. The boat is awesome.
