Nice boat ride with canned narrative which makes it a bit boring at times. Good way to see the dam and river in general for a decent price. If you are looking for something entertaining though, this is not the thing to do.

Purchase your tickets off the riverwalk inside the Riverside for $10. I was on the 10:30 am weekday boat. LIne up 15 minutes beforehand and they will let you know when you can walk down the dock onto the boat. The "deckhands" or "captain" all seemed pretty pleasant. They will sell you drinks, alcoholic or non-alcoholic. Downstairs inside is a... More

The people working are always super friendly and fun! One ladies hat flew off and the park ranger happened to be right there and was able to fish it out of the water. There was also a lady who had a medical emergency and they had medics waiting for her at the dock. Usually a mellow boat cruise but we... More

Nice Boat Ride with Narrated History of the river Area. We took the 12:30 PM tour. The cost is $10 per person. We used a 2 for 1 coupon that we received in our packet from the Riverside. The trip was a little over an hour and we learned a lot about the area. This was very interesting. It was... More

Boat leaves ON TIME! Loads 10-15 min before leave time. Buy your tickets inside the casino, lower level, across from boat dock. Informative info as you go... But not too much. Goes all the way to the Davis Dam, and back to the end of the casinos and back to Riverside. 75-90 min trip. Air conditioned area on main level,... More

We took the morning tour shortly after landing in Laughlin, and it was a nice way to start our mini vacation. We enjoyed the breezes as we took in the views and the audio history of the area. Great value at $10 per person for a 90 minute tour.

For $10/person, you get a 1 hr 20 minute boat ride along the Colorado River. They play a recorded narrative on the history of the town and the landmarks along the ride. They also have a bar - the drinks are a bit on the pricey side, but they don't stiff you on the alcohol so no complaints from us.... More

Under 2 hours and full of great stories, this river cruise is a nice way to pass some time in Laughlin enjoying the view from the water. It's comfortable, entertaining and cheap. Look for BOGO or other coupons. But at $10, it's well worth the non-discounted cost. Seating is plentiful and covered. Departs from the Riverside Resort where we were... More

You can't go wrong with this $10 boat ride on the Colorado River. The crew is friendly and the boat is well maintained. The narration about the river and the dams is interesting, educational and you can actually hear it due to a good audio system. Just a nice relaxing little trip. There are restrooms on board and beverages available.
