We took an evening boat ride for the Christmas on the Pecos tour. My 4 year old enjoyed all of the pretty lights. It was amusing that several yards were advertisements for corporations, and a few others were paid for by other companies, but it was still worth it. Remember, it will feel colder on the water due to the... More

We took the evening river cruise and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The boat captain was very informative and had a great wit. He shared history of the river, talked about several of the beautiful homes we passed, pointed out giant tortoises in one family's yard, and told us about several families who live along the river. We hope to return... More

We took the 3pm river cruise. The price was reasonable for a one-hour boat ride. The breeze on the river was nice. We floated under a train trestle, and there were beautiful houses along both sides of the river. At one point the boat captain stopped and backed up to show us some huge tortoises in someone's yard. I would... More

The best $6.00 you can spend in Carlsbad. Since we were the only two persons on the cruise the day of our river excursion our boat captain took a few extra moments to give us the history of the river and the beautiful homes that line the banks of this crystal clear headwaters of the Pecos. Even though the temperature... More

The young men running the show on the day we visited were absolutely wonderful. Very service oriented and friendly. We took our tour on the unshaded pontoon boat and the two of them made sure to provide umbrellas for sun protection to everyone on the cruise. The tour is quite interesting and our captain was well informed about the waterway... More
