Tour Description

We invite you to discover the breathtaking beauty of Lake Tahoe in a pure natural way on the water. The day starts with a beautiful section of the Lake Tahoe coastline through granite boulder fields and past some of the North Shore's most stunning lake front homes. Guides will discuss lake ecology, geology, and other natural and human history topics throughout the trip.

After a deli spread lunch on the beach, you will drive to Tahoe City to the sailboat. You will join others aboard the 50ft "Tahoe Cruz!" Captain Mike and Captain Tyler, both U.S. Coast Guard certified skippers, ensure a fun and lasting sailing experience. Guests may enjoy taking the wheel or just sitting back, relaxing, and letting captain and crew set sail. Mingle with others while enjoying complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks.
