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.
**Due to construction near Cave Rock, guests should plan accordingly to ensure they reach their cruise on time.
