USS Riverside takes you up the Colorado River to the Davis Dam, then turns around and takes you to the end of the casinos. It takes about and hour and a half. I rode it twice in 3 days. It is very beautiful to take the late cruise and see all the casino lights. During the day, the weather was... More

We always take the boat ride when we are in Laughlin. If it is hot outside, they have ac inside and they have nice cold beverages available to purchase inside which help from the heat. You can also relax upside /outside area. Good tour with lots of information.

Cost is $10 but you can get a $1 off if you get a coupon for joining the players club at the riverside resort. Box office is downstairs on the waterfront level. We arrived 10 minutes ahead of the sailing time. You can buy drinks & light snacks on board. The trip lasts for 1 hour & 20 minutes &... More

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

This boat starts at the Riverside Resort & Casino. Cost is $10. It runs at 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm and, if there are 10 or more guests, 4:30pm. It takes you to the Davis dam, turns around, takes you to Harrah's Casino, turns around and takes you back to the Riverside Resort. The narrative is very interesting from the discovery of... 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.
