The ride was reasonably priced ($10) and you can always find coupon deals for BOGO. There was an interesting commentary about each of the casinos and a bit of the history of Laughlin. You board at the Riverside Casino and the boat goes down to Davis Dam and then turns around and goes up to Harrah's before turning around to... More

Our group of 10 did the USS Riverside the second night of our cruise. It cost only $50 for 10 of us as the Riverside gave us coupons for buy one get one. We enjoyed the beautiful weather and drinks as we cruised the river on the 8:30 cruise. I think we annoyed a few guests as we were a... More

What a great time we had. It was on St Patrick's Day got on top level. Just a spectacular view, learned a lot about the area. The fun group on board made it even more enjoyable. Had a couple of drinks, took in the fresh cool breeze, and spectacular views. The Davis Dam was impressive as is the clear water.... More

I think this was a great value and its a very informative cruise! Takes you down to Davis Dam and down to Harrahs and gives you a history of all the hotels. I'm glad we didn't pass this up :) there is a bar, bathrooms on board and the crew/captain were nice.

Took the 2:30 boat tour aboard the USS Riverside today. Was wonderful to sit on the top deck and learn about the history of the area while enjoying a beautiful view. Water level was high, but they squeezed under the bridge (with what seemed than less than a foot to spare) to show us the damn at the north end... More

We did the Riverside boat tour from Don Laughlin's Resort it was excellent. Nice story about how Laughlin began and how Don Laughlin built the bridge with his own money. It takes you right up to Davis Dam and down as far as the Golden Nugget. We had the drinks Pirate Punch wicked drinks. Color not so impressive as they... More

We took this tour of the river and a narrated history of the area. The weather was great when we visited the area. Very relaxing and it has great views of the casinos and the city of Laughlin and Bullhead City. I would highly recommend this tour esp for first time visitors to the area.

This was right outside the Riverside Hotel. For only $10.00 you get a nice boat ride on the river with narration about the area. We took the 2:30 boat. We sat upstairs in front. The weather was perfect this time of year for a boat ride. It was sunny but not that hot. ( I was in Laughlin once in... More

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
