Tahoe Paradise to offer cruises while Queen is out

With the Tahoe Queen sidelined due to operational issues, the paddle wheeler’s owner, Aramark, will run the Tahoe Paradise for sightseeing and dinner cruises on Lake Tahoe.

Tahoe Paradise, an 82-foot yacht, will begin offering the cruises out of Ski Run Marina starting Jan. 21. It features two decks, a window-lined dining room, a galley, a full bar and an open sundeck. The vessel can hold up to 70 guests for dining cruises and up to 90 for sightseeing tours. Tahoe Paradise will temporarily replace the Queen, which was issued a “no-sail order” following an investigation by the U.S. Coast Guard. The investigation was launched to find out if the Queen ran aground during a cruise shortly after midnight on New Year’s. As of last week, no evidence had been found to suggest it had, according to Coast Guard officials. However, investigators did find a hydraulic sprocket in need of repairs, and a working sprocket is required for the boat to operate on Tahoe, the Coast Guard said. The no-sail order was subsequently imposed. Tahoe Paradise will run in lieu of the Queen until further notice.
