Great way to see the Dam if you don't like heights. The drive from Las Vegas is approx. 45 minutes if you are enjoying the view on the way.The cruise lasted about an hour and a half. Scenery was awesome and when you make the turn you get a great view of the Dam Lots of opportunities for great pictures.... More

We decided to take a break from Las Vegas and do some sightseeing. Of course, we had to see Lake mead and the Hoover Dam. We saw an ad for this cruise and decided to give it a try. We are glad we did! Although the drive was about an hour and a half from Las Vegas, it was well... More

We did the Hoover Dam tour last year and decided this cruise looked like fun. We had a such a great time and were glad we booked it. The staff is awesome and you have the choice of being outside or inside when it gets a little warm. We didn't eat but the drinks were great and the Bloody Mary... More

You have two cruises to choose from. We chose the the morning cruise and ate our lunch from the grill. Food reasonably priced and very good. 6 in our group and everyone loved their food. Bar service very good. Relaxing, and even one of the men said they would do it again.

Amazing cruise. I didn't expect much, boy was I surprised. Dinner service was excellent. Our waitress Angela is an amazing server. Food was excellent. Timed just perfectly. All the staff was very friendly. Well worth the $62 dollars.

My brother in law suggested we hire a speed boat as they had done the week before we arrived for my birthday. What a great idea $160 for 2 hours on Lake Mead went around to the Hoover Dam even jumped into the lake to cool down great idea would recommend to any in Las Vegas only 30 mins away

The cruise is well run with relatively quick boarding and informative guides providing a lot of information about the history and construction of the dam (much of which you find to be a repetition of information you have already heard on the Hoover Dam tour if you are doing both) but the cruise does provide another point of view of...

Smooth cruise through the waters of Lake Mead... Hover by the Hoover damn.. Enjoy the tastey food that melts in your mouth.. Choose from for 5 different entrees and salads, desserts. Watch the sun go down as you sail back toward the dock. Cons- Don't bring your kids.... This is an adult activity. Cons- You get one roll and one... More
