A unique way to explore Lake Tahoe, and one of its most historic estates, is to cruise a 1950 woody to Thunderbird Lodge. The cruise begins on the east shore, where the captain and crew will offer you a continental breakfast along with a fascinating history of this beautiful area. Once you reach Thunderbird Lodge, you’ll enjoy a walking tour of the estate, including the Thunderbird Yacht (one of the most valuable wood boats in the world), followed by a picnic lunch overlooking one of the most beautiful views you’ll ever see. This cruise is a delightful, one-of-a-kind experience, and we highly recommend it! Find more information here. Or choose from a range of other tours, by land or boat, to explore this unique area.
