What to Expect What to Expect

This two-hour narrated Emerald Bay Sightseeing Cruise offers non-stop photo opportunities that will delight everyone in your family or group. As you cruise to, through and back from Emerald Bay, you will learn how it was formed and some of its fascinating history. Hear tales of Fenette Island (nicknamed "little rock island") within the bay, as well as the Vikingsholm Castle, the stone mansion on its shores.
You will even get a look below Lake Tahoe's surface, with a special video presentation of "Sunken Treasures of Lake Tahoe". This is a state-of-the-art video presentation showing what lies deep beneath the brilliant blue of Lake Tahoe's surface. Travel 500 feet below the waters of Glenbrook Bay to tour the Steamer Tahoe, the majestic vessel that cruised Lake Tahoe for 50 years before being sunk by her owners.
See underwater canyons and rocky bluffs that until now have never been seen by human eyes. Cruise through recently discovered ancient forests of petrified trees; forests that forced scientists to rethink theories of the lake's size and evolution. Roam the bottom of Emerald Bay and explore newly discovered sea mounds that are unlike any previously known underwater formation at Lake Tahoe.
Optional buffet lunch is available on the morning cruise during summer, which consists of a deli meats, cheeses, salads, soups, bread, chilli, cookies, soda, tea and water. Full bar service is also available (additional cost) for onboard M.S. Dixie II during the round-trip excursion from historic Zephyr Cove to Emerald Bay.

It was a beautiful tour with beautiful scenery. I took really beautiful photos.
It started out as a cloudy day but as the tour went out into the lake it cleared up where the sun was shining bright.
I would do the tour again.

I believe this is the only boat tour on the lake. It was educational, and you could see the entire lake as we crossed it. A beautiful place. The boat was clean, the food and drinks were good as well.

Was a beautiful day and enjoyed hearing the history of Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay. Lunch was offered but we did not eat on the cruise so cannot comment on the food. It was relaxing and lasted about two hours. We would recommend this to anyone who wanted to see the lake by cruising on it.

The trip was wonderful The water was a little rough due to the weather and the trip back was smoother. Emerald Bay was lovely and the narration was great and so was the music. On the way back we were fortunate to see a beautiful rainbow on the south shore which seemed to be very vivid and then would fade away and come back again. It was my second time on there and the whole experience was lovely. My friend from Chicago and I I live in Sacramento thoroughly enjoyed it despite the weather.

We loved everything about the boat trip. Perfect weather, right amount of tour guide, great bartenders -- and scenery that is truly unbelievable. The only things I would do to improve is to lower drink costs 10 a little steep -- and have a golf cart or something on hand for people with disabilities. A poor woman on crutches had to walk that entire gangplank and we worried she wouldn't make it!

This tour was beautiful and nice to experience. Our tour was at 11am, We sat in the 3rd deck on the side view and I honestly think those were the best seats since you could see the back, side and front view of Tahoe.

The service in the Ship was very good. Our waiter, Samuel is very personable and very efficient. Our food was very good, price was fair. He suggestion helped us to cut down unnecessary order, Very Beautiful scenic Lake with explanation and view through the glass Over all we need to go once for this kind of tour.
