Take a smooth ride around the lake in a paddle boat. This relaxed paced tour gives all a good chance to take in the different scenes of the lake. Great history lessons too!

We took the noon cruise on October 11th. Emerald Bay was gorgeous and Lake Tahoe more beautiful than any lake I've ever seen. Drinks were very good but expensive! Overall, a fun cruise on a paddle wheel boat.
