About 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, walk, or go horseback riding on the scenic lakeside trails up to Vikingsholm, Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight's Scandinavian mansion built in 1929, spend a day at the beach swimming or relax and sunbathe, go scuba diving and paddle boarding or simply admire the panoramic views 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.

Do not miss out on a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the scenery of Zephyr Cove and Emerald Bay. From champagne brunch options to sunset endeavors, these sightseeing tours combine food and drinks for the best vacation to Lake Tahoe!

"high point of our trip"
I expected this to be a very good event, but it became a high point of our trip. Not to take away from the beautiful beaches or the great sights but this cruise had everything. Lots of people but all moved on board quickly. We sat with a group of 4 and had great conversations. The food was very good, the wine inexpensive and the servers very attentive. The sights were spectacular and it was all rounded out with a dance band in a large lounge playing popular music.
Tip: Don't be disappointed. To be sure you get on board buy your tickets in advance from vacations made easy.
