Take a ride on a paddlewheel boat around canyon lake for a 1 1/2 hour tour and see animals and nature at it finest. Staff are excellent and scenery is great. Leave extra time for the drive as road is winding and views spectacular. Again leave more time to drive by marina area for 2 miles and visit tortilla flats.... More

There isn't much about our boat cruise on Canyon Lake that I would change. The boat was clean and seaworthy, the crew was friendly and accommodating, the snacks and beverages were good and reasonably priced, the scenery was spectacular, and the entire 1 1/2 cruise was extremely enjoyable. Plus we even spotted 8 or 10 big horn sheep and two... More

It had rained all weekend and we were looking for something nice to do. We drove to the Dolly Steamboat and had just a great time. The information on the PA was excellent, and most important, we could actually hear it. I have been on other boat rides where it is hard to understand. This was perfect. Eagles, Big Horn... More

Some big horned sheep on the top of the mountains made for some interesting sites. The sheer vastness of the canyon walls is amazing,

Despite the rain and cold weather we had an amazing time during this tour, the boat ride was so much fun and my kids really enjoyed it.

Sailed with a wedding party, and have subsequently brought friends to see the canyon. Spectacular. Bring the camera, or you will be mad at yourself

I didn't know what to expect. Once on the boat, I had a feel for what I thought would be a limited experience. I was wrong. These canyon lakes just go on and on, Quite interesting. Learned a lot. Highly recommend. Try and find discount coupons.

Great way to spend a couple of hours. Suggest you get there early if you want to get a seat outside.

One thing we would like to suggest is that you start the cruise at 5:00. It got dark very early so the view was not as good as it could have been.
