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 paddleboarding 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.
