Lake Pleasant Cruises is a family owned and managed business that began cruises in May, 2014. 'The Phoenix' was shipped from North Idaho, where it was built by Finney Boat Works, to the beautiful waters of Lake Pleasant. We offer Daily Sightseeing Cruises, Dinner Cruises, Live Music Cruises, Special Event Cruises and Private Charter Cruises. The cruise boat has a full service bar offering beverages and snacks for purchase and a state-of-the-art sound system. "The Phoenix" is a 65', 150 passenger vessel which is climate-controlled in the enclosed main deck, with available seating for up to 100 guests. The top deck is open air but shaded with a canopy, and can also seat up to 100 guests. There are two restrooms on board and our vessel is handicap accessible. We look forward to and appreciate your business.
