Tahoe Tastings and the Golden Rose is located at 2435 Venice Drive, South Lake Tahoe, CA (click the address for specific directions). Navigation sometimes sends guests to the wrong parking lot, go all the way to the end of Venice Drive into the main marina parking lot. Currently, The Fresh Ketch restaurant is not open so you may park in those spots if one is available. On weekends, especially holiday and event weekends, we recommend using alternate transportation such as taxi’s, uber or carpool if possible as parking can be difficult. Traffic can be quite backed up turning a small 5-mile drive into 30-40 minutes. Give yourself ample time and do not park illegally or you will be towed by the marina at the owners expense.

Head to the Rubicon Dock which is at the north end of the parking lot (furthest end from the parking lot entrance) to the right of the boat launch ramp and opposite from the Fresh Ketch restaurant and Captain’s Corner. You will see a sign stating “Water Ski School” on a black post at the start of the dock – head down that dock. You will find the Golden Rose at the green gate, it is a bit of a walk and almost 3/4 of the way down. Use the map below for reference. Boarding begins about 15 minutes prior to your departure, please wait at the green gate until your Captain or Crew opens the gate for boarding.

Look for this corner, it's the entrance to the Rubicon Dock.
