Tahoe Things to Do: Boat Cruises

One of the most popular things to do in Tahoe is to take a boat cruise out onto Big Blue (a.k.a. Lake Tahoe, for those of you new to the local lingo). Several long-running companies offer cruises of varying kinds: on a paddleboat, in a gondola, on a luxury yacht or on a sailboat. But don't forget about the smaller Tahoe boat cruises, such as the ones on kayaks, on a river raft, SUP or rental motorboat.
