What you'll do
Welcome to Tahoe Amore. Lake Tahoe's only Venetian Gondola cruise. You'll be greeted by a Gondolier dressed in true Venetian attire. If a beverage is brought along we'll gladly open it for you. We have no corkage fee so bring as much wine/champagne/or beverage of your choice as you'd like. As we take off the dock you'll see people eating and drinking at the nearby restaurant, smiling and probably a bit jealous of you. Throughout the ride we go through the channel of the Tahoe Keys Marina. We're actually in the backyard of roughly 1000 homes, so it's not uncommon to see residents BBQ-ing, socializing, and enjoying the mountain air. Nestled 6,200 ft up into the Sierras, you'll get a glimpse of Heavenly Mountain & Mt. Tallac. Sometimes you'll learn about how and why Gondolas originated and how they evolved, or learn about annual traditions the old county holds. Something is said about just relaxing in a historic boat with no engine. Yep that's right these Gondolas are propelled by one wooden oar the entire time. Or maybe the Gondolier you'll get tells you about what Lake Tahoe has to offer and the history behind this serene place. Gondolas aren't just for romantic couples like the
We provide you with One Private Boat, Cups, Wine Openers, and Blankets to sit on and cozy up with.
I've been rowing these beautifully crafted boats for 17 years. Handmade and carved in Venice, Italy, then shipped over. Being an American I cannot row as a profession in Venice, so I brought the Venetian culture to gorgeous Northern, CA. I will be rowing through beautiful Lake Tahoe in the Tahoe Keys Marina. I'll speak of the history of Gondolas, how and why they originated and what they've evolved into today. The sounds of Sinatra and Italian music playing in the background. Last but not least the ride will be surrounded by the beautiful Sierra views, pine trees, and crisp mountain air.
