Get That Wheel Turnin'

The M.S. Dixie II Sightseeing Cruise to Emerald Bay operates daily from Zephyr Cove Resort in Zephyr Cove, Nevada, just 5 miles north on Highway 50. Unfortunately, the Tahoe Queen is unable to operate from the Ski Run Marina due to low water levels of Lake Tahoe. Lake Tahoe Cruises offers the same price for cruises aboard the M.S. Dixie II at Zephyr Cove Resort. A free shuttle departing Ski Run Marina Village is scheduled daily to take you to Zephyr Cove so that you can enjoy your cruise aboard the M.S. Dixie II. We are sorry for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you aboard the M.S. Dixie II, voted 2013’s “Best of Tahoe” Sightseeing Cruise!

Awestruck upon seeing South Lake Tahoe for the first time in 1862, Mark Twain uttered, “It must surely be the fairest picture the whole world affords.” From the decks of our spacious paddlewheelers, the M.S. Dixie II and the Tahoe Queen, you’ll be mesmerized by the beauty of Tahoe’s crystal blue waters and towering peaks – whether you choose a daytime scenic cruise, or sunset dinner cruise that includes live entertainment and delicious entrées. These Lake Tahoe boat tours are a must see on your trip to South Lake Tahoe.

Our Tahoe boat cruises to Emerald Bay are an absolute must – offering views of some of the most incredible scenery in the world. Come aboard and enjoy a good dose of South Lake Tahoe history with our Captain’s live narration as paddlewheelers bring you one of the most photographed natural attractions in the world.

We provide complimentary Shuttle pick-up and drop-off service, however the service is 1st come, 1st served. There is a nominal transportation fee for groups of 20 or more. If space is not available guests would have to find their own way to Zephyr Cove Resort (M.S. Dixie II) or Ski Run Marina (Tahoe Queen).

*Parking for the M.S. Dixie II at Zephyr Cove Resort and the Tahoe Queen at Ski Run Marina costs $8 per vehicle.

M.S. Dixie II

MS.Dixie.jpg

It’s true – this Lake Tahoe boat tour has fans! The 520-passenger, award-winning M.S. Dixie II is the largest cruising vessel on South Lake Tahoe, and a local favorite. Considered one of Tahoe’s most entertaining and affordable water activities, the M.S. Dixie II has been voted “Best Cruise in Nevada” by Nevada Magazine.

Due to the current drought conditions that are occurring in our region, Lake Tahoe is currently experiencing historically low water levels. For this reason, we have changed our cruise path so that you can enjoy many other magnificent sightseeing experiences of Lake Tahoe.  We will still be providing you with a beautiful view of Emerald Bay, however we are unable to enter the bay at this time.

Thank you for joining us on Lake Tahoe’s Cruise’s M.S. Dixie II, Voted Best Cruise of Tahoe in 2013!

Tahoe Queen

Tahoe-Queen-Front.jpg

Voted the best Tahoe boat cruise in South Lake Tahoe by readers of The Tahoe Tribune, the Tahoe Queen is the lake’s only authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler. This elegant South Lake Tahoe icon recently underwent major renovations to reflect the allure and luster of the early 1900’s when there was truly no finer way to travel.
