Emerald Bay Lunch Cruise in Lake Tahoe

Emerald Bay Lunch Cruise in Lake Tahoe

This Emerald Bay lunch cruise includes an all you can eat lunch buffet with gourmet meats, cheeses, veggies and a bread basket plus one or two free drinks (alcohol, beer, wine, soft drinks, water, juice). One free drink October through May and two free drinks June through September.

Emerald Bay, which is located on Tahoe's West Shore is considered one of the most photographed areas in the world. Surrounded by peaks rising sharply 3000 feet from the Lake, this glacially created formation is home to Fannette Island, Vikingsholm Castle, and Eagle Falls.

This is a wonderful cruise for family members of all ages. It is a great way to see the lake from a different perspective and to learn about the surroundings.

Aboard the Tahoe Bleu Wave, the crew strives to make your time aboard a true "Tahoe Experience" - an experience beyond the routine. From the minute you step aboard, you know this is the way to experience Tahoe. All public cruises guarantee awe inspiring views of the lake, majestic mountains, wildlife and a friendly on board staff to make sure you are well taken care of, so the only surprises you'll have are the pleasant kind.

This 70 ft. yacht includes four levels of luxuriously comfortable amenities including fireplace, sit down full bar, spacious deck seating, all decks stereo system, flying bridge, fore and aft salons and state room privacy and restrooms for only 49 privileged passengers, making it easier for the crew to attend to your special wants and needs while aboard this distinctive vessel.

This is the only daily cruise skirting the shores of the majestic glacier-carved Emerald Bay that stops a stone's throw from Eagle Falls and the Vikings Holm Castle, for sights and picture points that will give you a captivating feel of the unique history of the lake.

From there, while circumnavigating Tahoe's only island with its mysterious Tea House, the ship stops at Fannett Harbor, so close you can almost reach out and touch the granite stone walls.

Then, on to Rubicon Point with a formidable, 1000 foot underwater drop off, and America's highest elevation lighthouse, all the while maintaining a 360-degree view of the lake. Before returning to port, you will view the Majestic Mansions of Marla Bay, with stories all their own. The Captain's informative narrative gives you the details of the history, flora and fauna of the area, and answers all your curiosities.
