Classic Tahoe Queen Cruise Wows Sightseers


Features: The Tahoe Queen offers both Emerald Bay Sightseeing cruises and Sierra Sunset Dinner cruises that allow guests to enjoy the spectacular beauty of Lake Tahoe on an authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler. 

Why We Go: Although it is sometimes seen as a tourist trap, the Tahoe Queen cruise is still a worthwhile sightseeing experience to enjoy with the whole family.

  • Gorgeous Views: The Tahoe Queen will take you to places that provide photo opportunities that are simply unmatchable from the shore.
  • Romantic Dinners: The Tahoe dinner cruise offered by the Tahoe Queen is a great and unique chance to share a romantic meal with a loved one while watching the sun set over Lake Tahoe.
  • Live Entertainment: A charming live band on board will help you dance the night away during the dinner cruise, or at least listening and people watching in amusement.

Inside Knowledge: AAA discounts are available for Tahoe Queen Lake Tahoe cruises.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring Your Camera: The sights and memories of being aboard an authentic Mississippi paddlewheeler deserve to be documented for posterity. There are plenty of photo spots aboard the Tahoe Queen.
  • Do Check out the Special Events: Tahoe's favorite paddlewheeler hosts special events for holidays and other anniversaries. Make sure to book your adventure on a specially themed Tahoe Queen cruise.
  • Don't Go to the Wrong Marina: The M.S. Dixie II is run by the same company but departs from Zephyr Cove. Make sure to go to the Tahoe Queen docking at Ski Run Marina.
  • Don't Bring Outside Food: Unfortunately, personal snacks are prohibited aboard your Tahoe Dinner cruise.
