Spent an hour and fifteen minutes on Beaver lake and learned quite a bit of history while on the cruise. The Captain knows his history of the area and I for one learned a lot. The trip is worth while and you won't regret going.

This was our second trip to Eureka Springs and our second trip on the Belle of the Ozarks. We enjoy the leisurely trip and the information that was given is very informative.

We had no idea what to expect but had a great time, the weather fully cooperated, pretty blue skies scenery everywhere you looked, camera opportunities galore, it was a very smooth trip even crossing wakes it is a good size boat so not so prone to rocking when hitting wakes, the tour was 1 hour and 15 minutes, we had...

I have mixed emotions about it. It was over an hour long with lots of information given along the way but I was let down knowing we weren't going to make any stops. Other boatrides i have done before allow visitors to leave the boat at random stops to explore.The main attractions were the Beaver lake dam and a mountain... More

Relaxing boat ride. Guide was very nice and funny. Thought we would see more, like the Ozark Bluff Dwellers burial grounds, as advertised. Just rode by it from a distance. Kind of expensive for a one hour and 15 min. ride.

I am a huge lake person, I practically lived at the lake growing up, so this attraction was iffy for me. I looked at it more as a stroll on the lake with a nice breeze, but honestly, it was so much more than what I expected! The tour guide knew so much about the lake, pointed out the resorts... More

I like boats and lakes and boat rides. I was a little disappointed in this one. Maybe it was because it was so cold and windy. The previous day the boat rides had been cancelled due to bad weather. The boat doesnt run on thursday either, so that was the only day I had!. It was cold windy and gloomy!... More

We did this boat ride 10-16 and really enjoyed it. It was chilly on the water but our guide even loaned us jackets...saw a few bald eagles way in the distance and it was very informative and enjoyable.

Peaceful 1.25 hour cruise around Beaver lake. Only drawback is cash only policy. Friendly and knowledgeable narrator.
