This was a wonderful cruise on Saguaro Lake. The captain was very informative as to where we were going and what we would see along the way. The cruise was very smooth the entire time. Even my Brother-in Law enjoyed it, and he normally gets sea sick. Not this time. He totally enjoyed it!

This is a very pleasant cruise on Saguaro Lake with some lovely views of, guess what? saguaro cactus - thousands of them. We also spotted big horn sheep and eagles and we were told of a panther sighting of the previous day. We had a sand storm that day which made it all the more interesting. The narration is a... More

A lake in the Arizona desert, who would have thought. This lake cruise lasts 2 hours and covers around 6 miles of the 10 mile long lake. Great guide who explained all aspects of the surrounding area. Food and drink are available at a reasonable cost. A great way to find out more about the Arizona landscape, the people and... More

Did this tour as a last minute event. The staff was friendly. Captain Matt did a great job with telling high points of information without constant time filling babble. Got to see a bald eagle watching over the boat and a big horned sheep on the side of a cliff. Great relaxing way to see some Arizona landscapes.

We had a wonderful and very informative cruise on Saguaro Lake. It was totally relaxing and fun! The weather was perfect, a little cool, but very nice. The crew was great, the captain was entertaining and funny. Their drinks were good and my husband loved the popcorn. We even saw a bald eagle and a big-horn sheep. It was awesome... More

This is an easy access lake cruise within minutes of Phoenix/Mesa. The crew is very knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining! Its a great value at $20/person! There are music cruises on the weekends and the view is incredible! See Saguaro Lake like you never imagined!

It is on a short distance from Scottsdale/ Phoenix. Easy tot drive. Beautiful surroundings. Lake Suguaro is very beautiful. The Desert Belle is a lovely boat. You can book a trip of 90 minutes voor 20 $. Very much worth it. The captains tells a lot about the wildlife etc. It is a very nice trip! Glad we did it.... More

My family treated my father to a wonderful dinner cruise for his 82nd birthday. We had 12 in total with everyone having a great time. The kids (of several generations) loved the spectacular views of the lake from the top deck as we cruised along and the older folks liked sitting in the comfort of the enclosed cabin. The crew...

Nice and easy, informative and fun .Spend 90 minutes on the Dessert Belle and learn about Saguaro Lake and its wildlife .For $5 more the downstairs part of the cruiser is climate controlled were they serve drinks and snacks . Nice for families and kids . You can book online or by telephone.

It was very nice! The scenery is just amazing and the tour we took was on a Saturday evening so they had some live music. Music was great and the ride was very relaxing! Was definitely worth the money and the time! If ever in Mesa you should add things to your to do!
