Get away from the bright lights for an afternoon and take a rest the Lake Mead Boat trip is a good way to refresh one's self. The boat that looks like the old fashioned stern wheeler river boat goes around Lake and up to the Hoover dam and back with a intermittent commentary about the nature and also the how... More

For a day away from the casinos of Las Vegas, we drove to Lake Mead for a cruise. The parking is rough ground so we had to be very careful with the hire car. While we were in the queue to board the boat, I thought we were going to be jammed in like sardines in a tin, but I... More

We took our oldest sister there for her 60th birthday. We had the best time! We arrived early and enjoyed drinks at the boat dock/visitors center. We loved having our picture made so we could send it home to our parents. The food was nothing to write home about but it was good. The soup served in a champagne flute... More

A pleasant 90 minute distraction from Sin City. We drove but there are coach trips too. Parking is more building site than car park. Unpaved rough terrain. The snack bar is very basic but unbelievably cheap. Food and drink available on the trip. The tacky compulsory pictures are sooooo 1970's. The lake trip on a purpose built paddle wheeler enjoyable...

We read about the desert princess on here before we ventured off to Vegas and decided to include it on the itinerary as we had hired a car for a few days. The marina is located not far from the highway and just 1/2 junctions up from the Hoover Dam, and is well sign posted from the main road. It... More

We were given this cruise as a gift, we went on the afternoon cruise at noon on a Saturday. This cruise was a nice escape, as we live in Las Vegas. The Desert Princess is a paddle wheel style boat and they offer different tours, ranging from a 90 minute tour, a champagne brunch tour, and a dinner tour. They... More

We decided this would be a nice way to see the lake. We decided on a Sunday Brunch Cruise. I called and made our reservation, securing it with a credit card. We left our hotel in Las Vegas and headed to the dock. We paid our $10 fee to get into the park. We were unaware of the fee. We... More

While in Vegas we thought we would go over to the Lake Mead and see what's going on. We were first greeted by the Ranger Station to collect $10.00 to enter. I did not know that it would cost anything and when I told him I am a veteran he let me go through for free, for I would have... More

Found this while research the Hoover Dam tours. We did this afterwards and were so happy we did! Lake Mead is so beautiful and unique that a 90 minute tour is a must. Food and drinks are available - and don't miss the margarita! Outside can be hot - but worth standing out there for a bit; inside still allowed... More
