Thunderbird Lake Tahoe Yacht Cruises


Make a charitable donation to Thunderbird Lake Tahoe and cruise aboard Thunderbird Yacht to preserve a national treasure. Charter Thunderbird and your payment will support the continued operation and maintenance of this art-deco icon, furthering the charitable mission of Thunderbird Lake Tahoe.

Charitable contributions for private cocktail cruises start as low as $5,000 per hour (generally with 2 hr. minimum). Thunderbird can comfortably carry 16 passengers although groups up to 20 may be accommodated.

Cruises generally depart and return to the Whittell Boathouse at Thunderbird Lodge. Pickups and drop offs can be arranged at other Lake Tahoe locations, including private piers, subject to local conditions. Cruises originating from Thunderbird Lodge include a guided tour of the buildings and grounds.

We offer cruises at discounted rates for terminally ill children and their immediate families. For more information, please contact your local chapter of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Each summer, Thunderbird Lake Tahoe invites its Preservation Club flagship members at the Admiral’s Level to embark on a variety of complimentary moonlight, east shore, and trans-Tahoe cruises.
