To truly experience Lake Tahoe, take a trip aboard the M.S. Dixie II, a paddle-wheeled boat that plies the lake’s stunning, cobalt-blue waters. From its vantage point on the lake, you can take in breathtaking views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Emerald Bay, charming Fannette Island, and Vikingsholm Castle.

While on board the M.S. Dixie II, you’ll learn about the history of the lake and how it was formed and some of its fascinating history. 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 video presentation showing what lies deep beneath the brilliant blue of Lake Tahoe's surface.

On your trip on the M.S. Dixie II, you’ll encounter underwater canyons and rocky bluffs that until now have never been seen by human eyes. The boat will cruise through recently discovered ancient forests of petrified trees, roam the bottom of Emerald Bay, and explore sea mounds that are unlike any previously known underwater formation at Lake Tahoe.

Practical Info

The M.S. Dixie II departs from Zephyr Cove Resort Marina, 20 minutes northeast from South Lake Tahoe. Two cruise options are offered: a daytime cruise and a sunset cruise. Both cruises served food and drinks. The ride lasts approximately 2 hours.

The Zephyr Cover Marina itself is also worth checking out, as you can rent boats, pedal boats, kayaks, canoes, water-ski equipment, and jet skis.
