The cruise typically follows the southwest shore of Lake Tahoe into Emerald Bay, all the way back to Vikingsholm and around the island. We do not disembark in Emerald Bay but we will stop for picture opportunities if boat traffic allows. In rare circumstances, due to the wind, water, and wave conditions, we may have to alter our route.

Throughout the tour, we will be sampling 8 wines heavily focused on wine regions in Northern California, starting with a sparkling wine followed by a variety of whites and reds. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase bottles of their favorite wines at the end of the tour to enjoy during the rest of their stay in Lake Tahoe or to take home to add to their collection. Please drink responsibly.

As always, guests may still bring their own food. Grab-and-go items are available at Captain's Corner or Pirate's Chest Tahoe at the marina.

A non-drinking rate is also offered on most tours, excluding holidays and special events. Our wine cruises are 21+, all ages are welcome on private charters. If you have an older teen in your party, please contact us for an exception to the age restriction on the wine cruises. Gratuity is not included in your ticket price.

Buying a gift for that special someone? Gift cards are a great option if you don't know what date they will be joining us. Purchase one below with no expiration date.

*this cruise option is mainly offered during the high season only

Please note that we time the departure and return times of the "sunset cruises" so that the sun is setting at the end of your cruise so that you are not on the lake in the dark for your safety. Since we are in the mountains, you will never actually see the sun set here on the lake but you may be able to see the spectacular colors that can accompany sunsets that Lake Tahoe is known for.
