Cruises

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. Smoking is prohibited aboard the Tahoe Queen and M.S. Dixie II.

We provide complimentary Shuttle pick-up and drop-off service, however the service is first-come, first-served. There is a nominal transportation fee for groups of 20 or more. If space is not available on the shuttle, guests would have to find their own way to...

  • Zephyr Cove Resort... for the M.S. Dixie II
  • Ski Run Marina... for the Tahoe Queen

Parking at both locations costs $8 per vehicle.
