About the Tahoe Queen
The 312-passenger Tahoe Queen was voted the best Tahoe boat cruise in South Lake Tahoe by readers of the Tahoe Tribune. The lake's only authentic Mississippi paddle wheeler, Tahoe Queen recently underwent major renovations to reflect the style and grandeur of paddle wheelers of the 1900's. The Tahoe Queen is handicap accessible and has a handicap accessible bathroom on the first deck.

About Emerald Bay
Emerald Bay is a natural gem located at the southwest corner of Lake Tahoe. A mere 12 miles from the city of Lake Tahoe, it serves as a popular tourist destination for outdoor activities and sightseeing. Emerald Bay is a designated National Natural Landmark and visitors can enjoy natural views of gorgeous mountain tops and glacier-carved granite. Scenic lakeside hiking and walking trails wind through the forest of the bay and Vikingsholm, a mansion and example of Scandinavian architecture is easily visible and accessible. Also nearby are the remains of Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight's Tea House on Fannette Island, the only island on Lake Tahoe.

After boarding one of the mooring cables snapped and departure was delayed 40 minutes to repair it. When we finally departed the captain said there would be no extra charge for the 'extended' tour. No one laughed. The souvenior photo taken for optional purchase is over priced at $32.50. The tour was good, informative video played on the way back. Food and drink were good and the staff was friendly.
