Q & A

Cruises begin on the Golden Rose in the Tahoe Keys Marina. The course follows the south-west shore of Lake Tahoe into Emerald Bay, all the way back to Vikingsholm. We do not disembark in Emerald Bay but we will stop for picture opportunities if boat traffic allows.

No pets please, service animals only.

Yes and No. Standard scheduled daily tours on the Golden Rose are limited to adults 21 and older.If you want to rent the vessel for a private tour, there is no age requirement.

You may bring light snacks such as crackers, cheese and fruit. Imported & Domestic Cheese Platters are available for pre-order, brought to you by On Board. Served with dried and fresh fruit, olives, salami & crackers. This is a pre-order item and can only be guaranteed with a 48-hour notice.

Our tours are generally 2 hours long, but please allow for 2.5 hours in case of any water delays. The 4th of July Tour will last longer than a typical tour as will some holiday weekends.

No. Smoking, including e-cigarettes and vape pens, are NOT permitted on the dock or the boat.
