We went on the Thanksgiving morning cruise. A nice way to see the lake and explore the area. The captain gives lots of great info about the residents (where the famous people live) and lots of good stories.

What a fun, entertaining and informative experience on Lake Arrowhead! Our tour guide and Captain of the boat was so funny and had lots of History Facts about the area for us to enjoy. He really loved doing what he does...

Very much enjoyed the one-and-a-half-hour trip around the lake. The boat is roomy and comfortable, with food and beverages available and a bathroom. The captain is engaging, although some of the shtick is a bit trite. The usual emphasis on which celebrity lives where, but the historical elements were interesting. Overall, a very good value and highly relaxing.

Nice relaxing 90 minute narrated lake cruise. Interesting lake facts, celebrities homes identified, and perfect weather on our cruise day. Boat holds close to 100 passengers. I've taken the Big Bear Queen in the past, and enjoyed that cruise more. I believe the Queen is smaller.

On our recent visit to Big Bear, we wanted to try something a little different so we called the Miss Liberty boat ride. Being retired, we enjoy visiting places when it's not crazy busy with all the other tourist and visitors during prime times. However, the flip side is that many stores and activities may be closed due to the... More

We took our 5 year old on this, it was worth it, its 50 minutes and the guide was funny, talking about the area, telling jokes. There isn't a ton to see, just houses really, but he had information on the houses.. it was a nice boat ride, relaxing. The only issue i can say is we took the 2pm... More

It had been a generally cloudy and cool day in town, but we decided that since we only had a limited time on our vacation we would try to take the Paddlewheel boat. We gave a call to see if they were even going to go out and learned that they do go out if they have at least fifteen... More

The giant paddle wheel gave a smooth quiet ride. We sat upstairs in the shade covered seats with an excellent view. The captain describes the history and surroundings with rich and interesting detailed stories as he circles the entire lake. So many famous people have lived here from movie stars to gangsters. There were a number of different dams built... More

We took a 6 PM tour of the boat. It's a 80 minutes ride. The captain of the boat was very courteous and knows almost everything related to Big Bear lake. He gives a running commentary of the lake's history and the trivia all along the tour. The ride is very scenic and the setting sun gave it a romantic... More
