We road aboard the Tahoe Queen; a true paddlewheeler on our tour of Lake Tahoe. We took the early afternoon tour (although evening tours are available with meals). The trip starts at South Lake Tahoe and heads north to Emerald Bay; the most picturesque spot on Lake Tahoe. And Lake Tahoe has no shortage of beauty no matter where you are along its route. The waters are tourqoise, emerald and deep sapphire blue depending upon the depths. Sometimes you can capture all the varying hues of blue in one photo shot.
Snacks are availabe for purchase. And I'd highly suggest bringing sunglasses, sun hat and sunscreen as the rays reflected off the lake are fairly strong. (No smoking is allowed on these trips. The region is very protective of Lake Tahoe's pristine, clear waters and endevours to prevent litter from being thrown into the lake.)
The tour is round-trip and approximately 2 1/2 hours long and is a great way to spend an afternoon.
