This was a very nice trip. I learned some things I didn't know and the scenery was beautiful. The price was very reasonable for the trip - and there were beverages available on the boat as well as restrooms.

This is a relaxing and informational cruise on the Colorado River launching from the Riverside Casino. We were not able to go under the bridge to Davis Damn due to the river being too high but still enjoyed the leisurely trip by the casinos with information regarding the development of Laughlin. We took the Saturday 6:30pm cruise and watched the... More

As we sailed, the cost was $10/adult (02/2014), and that price for the ride to Davis Dam, and especially the wonderful narration about the history of Laughlin was worth it. Some charter and bus groups had two-for-one coupons, but even at full price, passengers will get their money's worth. We didn't think to look into it, but it might be... More

You really can't beat the price! The excursion is $10 per person and 2-for-1 coupons are easy to come by. The boat is large and comfortable. There is a a full bar aboard with reasonable prices. The taped narrative is very informative and interesting, although it can be hard to hear in certain areas of the boat. Really it is... More

This is a low-speed cruise that heads up the Colorado River to Davis Dam and back. There's recorded audio that discusses points of interest and the history of Laughlin as the cruise progresses. The boat itself is nice with a bar serving soft drinks, beer and cocktails. All in all - a very fun time! This cruise is free for... More

We stayed at Don's Riverside Resort in early April, 2013 and received a 2-for-1 coupon for this river cruise in the coupon booklet we got when we checked in. Our total cost was $10 total for both of us. This is the second year in a row that we took this cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. However, this... More

This was the best deal of our trip! It was very educational and enjoyable. It was a much needed break from the casino action. The captain was very entertaining and the staff was great! We also purchased the prime rib sandwich lunch. It was very affordable and very good. I would definitely recommend this 90-minute tour to all Laughlin visitors!

Took a boat ride on the USS Riverside. Pleasant hour and a half ride up and down the river with the captain telling about when the dam was built and other informative things. Fun to be out in a boat and look back to see the casino's all in bright lights. Used a 2 for 1 coupon so 2 of... More

We had a 2-for-1 coupon for the boat ride, and that it really cheap entertainment. The ride is about 90 minutes, and really takes you to some great highlights of the Colorado River, upstream and down from the Riverside Resort. Okay, you're not visiting the Grand Canyon here, but it's an informative and enjoyable trip. It's not easy to get... More

Go! Enjoy an hour and twenty minute boat ride on the lovely Colorado River. It leaves from Don Laughlin's Resort. The ticket office is on the lower level/river side. Tickets are just $10.00 an adult...chldren less. All nicely narrated, giving you a history lesson of the area. See the Davis Dam, camping, the casinos, the riverwalk and the beautiful, CLEAN... More
