This is so different than anything else in the state that it's great as a laid back, enjoy the view and take it easy, experience. We went on the 1 1/2 hour "nature" cruise and enjoyed it very much. The weather was perfect (85 degrees, and sunny -- of course). A couple of caveats, however: 1. Though paved, the road... More

The Dolly Steamboat dinner cruise is great! This is the second time I've taken it and love every minute. The crew is nice and professional, the boat is clean, scenery is gorgeous and the food is great. Really you won't get a better deal then the Dolly. Anytime I have family coming I'm bringing them here. This whole area is... More

The wife and I had a great time on board. They have a snack bar and restroom on board. I suffer from motion sicknesses, however, I did not suffer any symptoms. It was a smooth ride even though it was a windy day. The narration was clear and informative. We saw bighorn sheep and some birds of prey. I would... More

We took two Mother's for Mother's Day and they raved about the scenery and help all the way home. We also invited another couple and they are going to tell their kids to bring their families. We saw a huge Ram onto of the highest hill. We also got a lot of History from the Captain of the ship.. We... More

In my group from Velda Rose United Methodist Church in Mesa, we had 34 people who took this trip on Saturday, May 13th. We had a ball! Only 5 minutes into the trip we were greeted by about 5-7 big horn sheep standing on the rocks near the coastline. The weather was beautiful and the captain and crew took excellent... More

What a neat surprise to spend time just cruising around Canyon Lake seeing all the interesting things, like geodes, Bach playing his organ, mountain goats, etc

54 Seniors enjoyed the peaceful cruise and we do this as a group every couple years. We like day trips from our home in Oro Valley and make a day of lunch and lots of friendship.

I took this scenic tour with my wife and daughter, for my wife's birthday. Very rarely are we all together due to work schedule. So today was special and our love for boats and cruising fueled us to do this. The tour was a slow paced and relaxing cruise. The narrator was great and kept us informed of the lake... More
