The M.S. Dixie II is a unique, fun and entertaining way to see Lake Tahoe. A boat that resembles Mississippi paddleboat, the 520-person ship is an award-winning favorite for many visitors and locals. It has even been voted the Best Cruise in Nevada by Nevada Magazine. The M.S. Dixie II offers tours around the lake for a nominal price, leaving from Zephyr Cove. A wonderful way to enjoy the scenery and the boat is to experience their dinner cruise.
