The Tahoe has been cruising Lake Tahoe since 1950. She is a custom built high speed cruiser built entirely of wood. Glide with us across beautiful Lake Tahoe with up to 21 passengers.


In partnership with the Sierra State Parks Foundation, Cruise Tahoe is offering the Emerald Bay Cruise and Vikingsholm Castle Walking Tour. The cruise includes light appetizers and lots of Tahoe History. Available Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.


Step back in time as you board our 1950 woody to the historic Thunderbird Lodge. Cruise includes light snacks, walking tour of the Thunderbird Lodge and boxed lunch. Available Tuesdays and Saturdays throughout the summer. Some additional days may be available.


We specialize in intimate events and can host up to 21 passengers. Let us help you plan your wedding, engagement, family gathering or corporate function. The Tahoe can pick up and drop off at many locations around Lake Tahoe. We will work with you to create a memorable cruise on Lake Tahoe, and we can recommend top-notch vendors for catering and photography.
