“I believe we were one of the early riders with Mike and Kelly. I was traveling with my wife and 26-year-old daughter and I can’t think of a more wonderful way to see Lake Tahoe! Despite a less-than perfect day weather-wise, our host and hostess showed us a perfect evening. We started off in South Tahoe and cruised the lake relishing in all the beauty. Then we visited Emerald Bay, which is simply beautiful, and we were let off on the dock to explore the Vikingsholm. Upon returning to the boat Mike and Kelly had put out a charcuterie board replete with everything imaginable and plenty of adult beverages to wash it down. I’d give the experience – yes experience not simply a boat ride – five stars and I would recommend it wholeheartedly. I would also encourage you to take advantage of any and all drinking and eating options offered. It is a perfect way to spend a few hours and experience the best of Lake Tahoe with a knowledgeable and welcoming captain and crew!”

“My wife and I had an amazing experience in September 2023 on “The Liberty 1776” boat charter. This classic Hacker-Craft boat is a true beauty. The standout was Lake Tahoe’s stunning scenery – clear waters, tall pines, and the Sierra Nevada mountains. Sipping wine and enjoying charcuterie onboard while taking in the view was pure bliss. The crew was attentive and knowledgeable, enhancing our journey with insights into the lake’s history. In short, if you want an extraordinary Lake Tahoe experience, book “The Liberty 1776” charter. We’re already planning our next trip. Thank you for an unforgettable day on the lake!”

“Mike and Kelly are excellent captains and hosts. Their boat is one of a kind and breathtakingly beautiful! We booked it late but they showed us a wonderful time and provided a charcuterie board fit for a king and queen. The boat ride itself was so enjoyable and they shared their local knowledge and took us to great sites. If I could give them 6 stars I would. I highly recommend this boat above any of the many on Lake Tahoe.”

“I highly recommend Lake Tahoe Classic Boats for a one of a kind experience for your elopement on Lake Tahoe! Michael is the best boat captain on the lake, hands down. He is attentive, caring and goes above and beyond to ensure you are taken care of. I have had the honor of photographing a lot of intimate weddings/elopements and I have to say, exchanging your vows on this classic boat, takes the cake! I cannot wait to photograph more ceremonies from this incredible boat!”
