Considered one of South Lake Tahoe’s most entertaining and affordable water activities, the daytime scenic cruise on Lake Tahoe has been voted “Best Cruise in Nevada” by Nevada Magazine. This 2.5-hour scenic cruise is the perfect way to unwind after 3 days of information-packed educational sessions.

As you cruise to Emerald Bay, you’ll learn how it was formed, some of its fascinating history, and enjoy a special video presentation. With plenty of room to spread out and get comfortable, you’ll quickly settle in and find the best place on deck to snap magazine-worthy photos. There is a restaurant and bar on board where you can relax and continue to get to know your fellow conference attendees.
