Instead of renting the whole ship you may wish to rent The Commodore’s Salon for your boat ride around Lake Tahoe. The Salon sits on the top deck of the Tahoe Gal and is segregated from the wheelhouse of the ship by a large glass window. The guests may choose to watch the Captain run the ship through the window, or the window can be draped for privacy.

The Salon is 13 feet wide and 18 feet long and can comfortably accommodate private parties up to 30 people.

The Commodore’s Salon affords the opportunity to have a small private party on one of our regular cruises, without having to rent the entire ship.

Some ideas for the use of the Salon are:

  • Weddings
  • Birthdays
  • Dinners
  • Christenings
  • Business Meetings

The Salon will be for your guests’ pleasure exclusively; however, they will have access to the rest of the ship to enjoy with the other guests.

Call for details and prices. (800) 218-2464

The entire ship is air-conditioned and heated.
