This cruise is sure to entertain and educate again and again.
Doesn’t it get really hot in Branson during the summer?
It can, but that’s the perfect reason to come out on the water aboard the paddleboat! In the heat of the summer it is 15 to 18 degrees cooler on the waters of Lake Taneycomo than it is in the shopping area at Branson Landing, on the strip or even on Table Rock Lake. The waters of Lake Taneycomo always maintain a temperature of just 45 degrees, so a paddleboat cruise is always your best bet for cool summer fun!

Your crew works very hard to make sure you have the best experience possible aboard the Lake Queen. While tips are not required, they are greatly appreciated!

Yes, the Lake Queen has more than enough life jackets available for all passengers at any time. However, you are not required to wear life jackets during the sightseeing cruise.
Is the boat wheelchair accessible?
Yes, and so are the restrooms on board. Do keep in mind that the entrance to the boat is only 30 inches wide, so some larger wheelchairs and electric scooters or Segways may be more difficult to accommodate.
Is smoking allowed?
Yes, smoking is allowed on the outdoor decks in designated areas only.
Are restrooms available?
Yes! There is two clean restrooms on board (one for men and one for women). They are both wheelchair accessible as well.
Is the tour suitable for pregnant women?
The sightseeing tour should not be a problem for pregnant women as the waters are very calm and the boat is very stable. If you are concerned, you may want to consider consulting a doctor before attending the cruise.
Is there room to stow my belongings on board?
There is room on board to store limited belongings. If you have large personal belongings (such as a suitcase), you may be asked to keep it in the ticket booth which will be securely surveyed throughout the duration of the cruise.
Will I get seasick?
The paddleboat is a large, stable boat and Lake Taneycomo has very calm waters. Therefore seasickness is very rare. If you are particularly prone to motion sickness, please do consider consulting your doctor before attending the cruise.
Will there be souvenirs available for purchase?
