Our captain, Steve, was great and gave us a great tour of many of the best spots on the lake. Also spent time getting everyone up on water skis for the first time. Definitely a must do when you are in South Lake Tahoe

Had personal boat ride with family (five of us) and Scott as captain. Kids loved the tubing and were smiles the whole day. The boat tour lasted a few hours but time flew by as they were having so much fun.
