Emerald Bay Historic Boats

Historic Dories of Emerald Bay

In the cold, clear waters of Emerald Bay lie the remains of at least ten small vessels, which were once part of the Emerald Bay Resort fleet. Created in 1881, the Resort used most of the boats for fishing and recreational purposes, but were scuttled when the Resort was demolished for the creation of the State Park.

This "miniature fleet" is well preserved in the waters of Lake Tahoe, and allows sport divers and historical enthusiasts to catch a glimpse of Emerald Bay's past.
