$10 per person - can't beat that! The tour, caught at Riverside Resort / Casino, offers an excellent narrative, giving plenty of history of the local area, including the dams along the Colorado River, local personalities and Laughlin casinos. It was a sunny day, so we sat outside on the top deck. Great place to take photos or video. The... More

This is one of the least expensive and most enjoyable experiences in the area. We have been on the USS Riverside at least three times in the last two years. I always pick up a little more history about the area on every trip.

I would recommend taking 90 minutes and setting sail on the USS Riverside. This is a great way to see all of Laughlin and get the history of the area. The boat has drinks and snacks. The cost was only $10.

Really enjoyed this little adventure, the wind a little chilly, but if the weather would have been warmer, the top deck would have been ideal.

A cruise on the Colorado river is a perfect way to take a little break while visiting Laughlin. The narrated trip takes about an hour and a half and you learn the history of the area. I found it to be informative and fascinating to listen to.

After reading a few reviews I was concerned about the sound system and not being able to hear the audio portion of the tour. I don't travel with my hearing aid. We sat up top for picture taking reasons. I had no problem hearing the audio which was very informative. We will take this tour again. We had a coupon... More

Ramps and bench seating make this doable for mobility or arthritic challenged. Worth the effort. Beautiful ride, slow, no wind blasting in the face. Nightly Reccomended for conventions or family reunions.

This boat ride was the highlight of our Laughlin trip. Our boat ride was almost cancelled due to there had to be a minumn of ten people to go. We waited right to the end of boarding time and luckily we left with 15 people. We are not to much into gambling so our trip consist of viewing the scenic... More

Not a lot to see in Laughlin, but cruise takes you up river to the dam, and back down Casino Row. Narration gives you some history that made trip more worthwhile. Cruise takes a little over an hour; first departure is 12:30 and every 2 hours thereafter.

My experience with the USS RIVERSIDE staff started before I even arrived at the Riverside Resort. You see, I've never been to Laughlin before so I called several times regarding things to do in the area. Every time I called the hotel, I got connected to the USS Riverside's office girls...sometimes I had no idea why...Prime Rib Reservations?! I got... More
