The Vaporetto

A 2-Hour Tour of Lake Tahoe

The Vaporetto – the Venetian Water Taxi that literally made the Gondolas go extinct for a short period of time – no point in rowing passengers with the invention of the engine! These modern day Gondolas boast the same Italian feel, but able to go longer distances with a smoother ride due to the Gondolier being able to drive the vessel.


If you’d like to spend more time on beautiful Lake Tahoe or if you have a larger group, our Venetian water taxi is the way to go. Perfect for anything from a romantic couple’s cruise to group cruises like girls night outs, brunch cruises, afternoon family cruises and don’t forget evening party-cruises!


Our boat holds up to 8 passengers and we provide wine openers, cups, and music. Bring some appetizers along with your favorite beverages (no corkage) and our Gondolier will captain your party safely around the lake!


*Note: this a pleasure boat ride, not one that is made for getting in and out of water. Everybody stays dry the entire time and no swimming is allowed.
