Lake Tahoe Queen

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Kermacks on October 22, 2003

This 2 1/4 hour cruise on a paddle-wheel boat on the southern end of Lake Tahoe was scenic, interesting and a trip to remember. The captain provided an amusing and informative commentary at appropriate times throughout the cruise. It was a beautiful sunny day in October; the colors on the water were magical, and the surrounding mountains rugged and picturesque. Our destination was Emerald Bay and we cruised into the bay and around Fannette Island seeing Mrs. Knight's teahouse on the island, and her reproduction of a Nordic castle -- Vikingsholm -- on the shore. Landmarks, such as a mountain slide, an eagle's nest and other spots of interest were pointed out. Food and drink and souvenirs were available on board.

A special feature of this trip was the captain performing a marriage ceremony on board. The bride in her beautiful dress and veil made a lovely sight on the bow of the boat.
