Tahoe Queen

Tahoe Queen (Ski Run Marina)

Voted the best Tahoe boat cruise in South Lake Tahoe by readers of The Tahoe Tribune, the 312-passenger Tahoe Queen, is the lake’s only authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler. This elegant 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.

The Tahoe Queen offers Daytime Scenic Cruises that feature a tour through South Lake Tahoe history on the way to Emerald Bay. The Sierra Sunset Dinner Cruise offers an unforgettable elegant evening cruise complete with famous Tahoe sunsets, breathtaking views, local cuisine and live music. All Tahoe Queen cruises depart from Ski Run Marina. Summer Parking at Ski Run Marina is charged at $8 per day. Smoking is prohibited aboard the Tahoe Queen. We provide complimentary Shuttle pick-up and drop-off service. There is a nominal transportation fee for groups of 20 or more.
