Owner description: Carlsbad Cruises is located in Carlsbad, New Mexico along the beautiful Pecos River. Just a few miles down the road from the world famous Carlsbad Caverns, you can enjoy an oasis surrounded by tree shaded parks. Climb aboard one of Carlsbad Cruises boats and enjoy a relaxing hour long guided ride down the Pecos River, or bask in the sunshine and swim at our free beach area. We rent paddle boats, kayaks and more including a full service concession stand with the best snow cones in the southwest. We have everything you need to make the most of a day at New Mexico's secret beach!

We took the evening river cruise and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. The boat captain was very informative and had a great wit. He shared history of the river, talked about several of the beautiful homes we passed, pointed out giant tortoises in one family's yard, and told us about several families who live along the river. We hope to return in December for the holiday lights cruise.

We took the 3pm river cruise. The price was reasonable for a one-hour boat ride. The breeze on the river was nice. We floated under a train trestle, and there were beautiful houses along both sides of the river. At one point the boat captain stopped and backed up to show us some huge tortoises in someone's yard. I would have liked to have heard the captain tell about the history of the river, town, ect. instead of listening to a Chili Pepper's CD. Overall, a nice experience.

The best $6.00 you can spend in Carlsbad. Since we were the only two persons on the cruise the day of our river excursion our boat captain took a few extra moments to give us the history of the river and the beautiful homes that line the banks of this crystal clear headwaters of the Pecos.

Even though the temperature was in the 90's, the commentary of our boat guide, a stiff breeze, and the covered boat made the trip very enjoyable.

A somewhat hidden Carlsbad gem to be enjoyed.

The young men running the show on the day we visited were absolutely wonderful. Very service oriented and friendly. We took our tour on the unshaded pontoon boat and the two of them made sure to provide umbrellas for sun protection to everyone on the cruise. The tour is quite interesting and our captain was well informed about the waterway and the homes on the river. A very relaxing hour for the whole family.
