Description

Choose from a daytime, scenic cruise or an enchanting dinner cruise to Emerald Bay aboard the majestic M.S. Dixie II. Snap nonstop photos of the gorgeous mountain backdrop during the daytime cruise where you'll learn how the Emerald Bay glacial carved granite surfaces came to be, along with its fascinating history and a special video presentation.

The dinner cruise makes for the perfect evening beneath a sea of stars. Dine on a five-star, gourmet meal while enjoying live music and hearing intriguing stories about the sites of the area as you float by. You'll see Fanette Island, the home of Lora Joesphine Knight's granite Tea House and Vikingsholm Castle, a 38-room mansion built by Knight in 1929.

Hop aboard this gorgeous paddle wheel boat to sightsee from two spacious decks as these stately cruises take you on a calming journey across the clear, tranquil waters of Lake Tahoe to the breathtaking Emerald Bay area and back.

About the M.S. Dixie II
The award-winning M.S. Dixie II has been voted 'Best Cruise in Nevada' by Nevada Magazine. A local favorite, the 520-passenger ship is indeed a local favorite and holds the title of the largest cruising vessel in South Lake Tahoe. Complimentary shuttle pick-up and drop-off service is provided and the M.S. Dixie II is equipped with a handicap-accessible restroom.

About Emerald Bay
Peacefully resting in the southwest corner of Lake Tahoe is the beautiful Emerald Bay. A National Natural Landmark since 1969, the bay is just 12 miles from the city of Lake Tahoe and is a popular spot for tourists. Hike or walk the scenic lakeside trails up to Vikingsholm, Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight's Scandinavian mansion built in 1929, spend a day at the beach swimming, scuba diving and paddle boarding or simply admire the immense beauty of the clear waters, steep mountain tops and glacier-carved granite. Guests can also see the remains of Mrs. Knight's Tea House on Lake Tahoe's only island, Fannette Island.

Captain ron and ozzie were awesome! We were dropped off for this cruise although we planned 2 months ahead to go on the tahoe queen. Ozzie went above and beyond to make our 5 year anniversary special. We took pictures with captain ron and this cruise was 2nd to none. I even got ozzie on the dance floor with my wife. Food was good and the staff pedro and bartender silver fox i think his name is mark were great as well. Awesome time everyone, see you next year! :)

The cruise was a great way to see lake tahoe with great photo optys. Food and beverages were also good. The internet deal we bought through vacationsmadeeasy which includes lunch was no longer valid but the ms dixie folks were kind enough to pick up our food tab, otherwise i would rate superb.

The dinner cruise and the beautiful scenery made our 50th wedding anniversary very special. Our daughter and her husband helped make it even better. Keep up the fantastic job.
