lake Tahoe Cruises

When you stay at our hotel, you're a complementary four-mile shuttle ride away from the M.S. Dixie II or Tahoe Queen. These "Mississippi-style" paddlewheel boats offer year-round cruises that last two hours and deliver dazzling views of the High Sierras and the dramatic splendor of Emerald Bay. An underwater video takes you 500 feet below the waters of Glenbrook Bay to tour the Steamer Tahoe, the majestic vessel that cruised Lake Tahoe for 50 years before sinking. Cruises on paddlewheel boats are some of the most popular things to do in Lake Tahoe.

  • What types of boats can I book?

    Both the M.S. Dixie II and the Tahoe Queen are popular "Mississippi-style" paddle-wheel boats. The Tahoe Queen is the lake's only authentic paddle-wheeler, eliciting the true feel of what it was like to journey along the waters in the south in the early 1900s. The Tahoe Paradise is an 82-foot yacht that can accommodate up to 98 passengers and features a full bar, open sundeck and windowed dining room.
  • What types of cruises are there?

    Visitors can book an early afternoon scenic cruise which tours the lake and provides ample opportunity for snapping photos, or an evening dinner cruise, which pairs the beautiful scenery with a delicious menu showcasing the region's freshest fare. Charter cruises are also available.
