Tahoe Things to Do: Tours

With Lake Tahoe, a.k.a. Big Blue, enticing you at every turn, it’s little wonder that Lake Tahoe boat tours and charters are wildly popular things to do in Tahoe. If you’re feeling fancy, there are 80-foot yachts that are the epitome of elegance – perfect for wedding, special occasions or just because! Or, harken to a more Southern feel and experience a paddleboat excursion around the lake on a ship that can hold up to 520 passengers (again, a great venue for any celebration). Another option for a Lake Tahoe boat tour is aboard a sailing yacht, letting Mother Nature’s wind propel you silently along the clear, emerald-colored water. And, here’s a great one: schedule a romantic gondola ride at sunset … that’s amore! Of course, there are many other types of Lake Tahoe tours, with one of the most popular being fishing charters. This is a fantastic way to experience the lake or local rivers while also catching dinner. Do you enjoy Jet skiing, biking, carriage or sleigh rides, kayak trips, ATV or snowmobile rides, helicopter excursions, sightseeing, stargazing, climbing, photography, wine tastings or river rafting? There’s a Lake Tahoe tour for that too!
