Go for a two-hour spin on the lake in a luxurious 80-foot yacht, passing posh lakefront homes like the Henry J. Kaiser estate, where The Godfather: Part II was filmed. The Safari Rose has all the comforts of a millionaire’s home, including six bathrooms, a sundeck, and a heated salon for chilly evenings. Built in 1959 for bigwigs at the 3M Company, the yacht has sailed the Great Lakes, the Caribbean, and the Panama Canal. As you cruise Lake Tahoe, the crew will teach you about the area’s natural and human history. While the Safari Rose offers several daily cruises from Ski Run Marina in South Lake Tahoe, the best option is the sunset sail, which includes gourmet appetizers and drinks.
