Have been meaning to do this trip for several years - and it was well worth it. A relaxing hour and a half cruise on the lake on a beautiful day with wonderful views, pleasant and informative staff - and all at a reasonable price. No need to say any more!

Great get away for the day. 90 minutes trip the water gives great views of desert landscape with a choice of seating inside or outside. Good for families and couples.

Very enjoyable trip on the Desert Belle. The scenery is spectacular. Saw some wild horses and a big horn sheep. The crew is fun and pleasant. Look forward to doing it again.

After an action-packed week of travelling from Las Vegas through Zion, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon and Sedona - this lovely relaxing cruise around Lake Saguaro was just what the doctor ordered! We had left behind snow and chilly weather and arrived in Arizona to beautiful clear blue skies and warm sunshine. The boat was rather busy but we found great... More

This was a great tour. The staff was knowledgeable about the area's history, flora and fauna. Dress accordingly (hats, sunscreen, sweatshirt) as it will be a bit cooler on the water.

This 90 minute cruise will amaze you. The incredible scenery around the lake, the bald eagles, the big horn sheep and more cactus than you've seen in one place. The captain is very knowledgeable and doesn't seem a bit bored while sharing the information. The boat is handicap accessible, although you might not be able to manage the stairs to... More

After three days of hiking in various locations in Arizona, we decided to take a leisurely cruise on Saguaro Lake on the Desert Belle. The cruise offered beautiful views and the narration by the captain provided us with more than a few fun facts. The desert sun can be hot, even on the lake, so bring protection!

Very relaxing cruise on the lake but we didnt see much wildlife. Captain talked about how the day before there were long horn sheep but we didnt see any. We did see some wild horses, but there were not very exciting (wild or domesticated what's the difference?). You will learn more about cactus then you ever wanted to know, but... More

Excellent trip. Relaxing and entertaining. The "76th street " duo was a wonderful band. The views were awesome. Comfortable and clean. Highly recommend if you are visiting Phoenix Scottsdale area.
