Nice evening cruising Lake Tahoe with music, dinner, and drinks. The classic music set the mood along with the views from the lake at sunset were beautiful. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

We took the great little brunch cruise. The captain provided narration & history of the lake sites. Beautiful views, great brunch service & I would definitely recommend the blueberry muffin with a mimosa 😉🥂
