The boat ride was absolutely worth the $100! The captain had tons of super interesting facts and book excerpts. It doesn't get much better that Emerald Bay, anywhere! Get there early so you can get yourself a great seat in on the front of the boat. I will do it again when I visit.

Excellent tour. Captain Steve was informative and entertaining. The deck hands were very helpful and great on the drinks. Lake Tahoe provides everything else. I highly recommend this trip.
