Good way of spending an hour or two, if the weather is nice. Beautiful scenery. Snack bar onboard. Can probably become crowded on busy days. Saw two bald eagles! Only thing better would be kayaking.

This was our second time, we had absolutely no hesitation to bring friends to share this awesome experience. The scenery is breathtaking and the narration by the charismatic captain is second to none. I definitely recommend this unique Arizona experience.

Not our first or last time. Canyon Lake is beautiful. Narrating the tour makes it more special. Highly recommended!

We always recommend that you book in advance (Earlier than the day of) because seating is not guaranteed without a reservation. Online sales stop 2 hours prior to the cruise.
