Nice ride , beautiful setting ok tour. What they don't point out, on what is essentially a lake and home tour is the rich history here and all the famous people that lived here. Not to disturb current celebrities but old famous former residents. I live here in lake arrowhead.

If you want to relax, this is the way to go. The boat takes a slow, leisurely trip around the lake. While there, you will learn a lot of cool things about Lake Arrowhead. It's very magical. After the trip I decided I wanted to own a home there. It truly will make your day!

Being a Los Angeles local I never actually took a tour of the lake but I found it to be surprisingly quite informative and historical! Our captain was very friendly and you were I said entertaining and we truly enjoyed ourselves for about 50 minutes which is the approximate tour time.

Always a fun trip around the lake! The captain gives a great narrative of the history of the lake along with pointing out all the celebrities' homes that have second homes here. Lots of classic movies were shot here over the years and you'd be surprised at the tales you will here. A must-do for anyone visiting the Lake!

Since Lake Arrowhead is private this is really the only way to see around the lake unless you live there. The captain/guide was friendly and told us all the history and points of interest on the lake.

For a visitor, we did not find to much to do at Lake Arrowhead. The "Queen" was definitely the highlight of our visit. We had a entertaining, enthusiastic and funny ship's captain who did double-duty as tour guide. Learned a lot about the history and residents of the Lake and it was fun to be out on the water. Recommended.

If you go try to get Capt. Craig! He made the tour not only informative but fun! (Guys got jokes) LOL. I took my Mum on a tour of the Lake and Capt. Craig gave us great history of the lake and the surrounding area.

Veterans Day ride. Boat holds 65 inside only. Follows shores around Lake as captain tells the Lake's story. Interesting, pleasant and fun for the 50 minutes it takes to go around. Kids get to steer some as parents take pictures. All in all a fun leisurely trip work the money.

Captain Nick kept us entertained throughout the 50 minute cruise around Lake Arrowhead. The scenery surrounding the private lake is absolutely beautiful.Captain Nick is full of knowledge about the lake. On our cruise, he had a little co-captain, Captain Gene. He enjoyed "steering" the boat for a bit! Very nice, peaceful cruise.
