Thunderbird Yacht Cruise Experiences

Cruise Like a Celebrity

As keepers of Lake Tahoe’s history and supported entirely by philanthropy, we make THUNDERBIRD yacht available for only a few select private excursions each year. We invite you to join an elite inner circle of sponsors who make our preservation programs possible.

Nothing compares to the magic of cruising like the Rat Pack, celebrities, sports figures, and political leaders who have graced THUNDERBIRD’s deck. Cruises for up to 16 passengers typically begin and end at Thunderbird Lodge—Lake Tahoe’s Castle-in-the-Sky. When water depths and safety protocols permit, you may embark and debark from other locations, Consider cruising in the style of Gatsby to your next lakeside party or event.

Each summer, Thunderbird members at the Castle and Flagship Commodore and Admiral levels may participate in members-only cruises and yachting events. All cruises departing from and returning to Thunderbird Lodge include a walking tour of the estate.
