Great trip. Wonderful scenery and very knowledgeable crew. Have gone on this cruise several times and always enjoyable. Will go many more times.

This is a very enjoyable 90 minute cruise! The beauty of the lake and surroundings are something everyone should see. The captain and crew were great!

We enjoyed the boat ride but basically you see the same beauty going back into the canyon as you come back. We do love the scenery of this majestic scenery--just going driving would have been good enough for me It was packed though-so people do enjoy it.

The Dolly Steamboat is a fun way to see Canyon Lake, the Captain was friendly and knowledgeable. The views were remarkable on the 4 p.m. cruise in early March and the weather was perfect. After this trip it makes me want to try out the stargazing trip and even the dinner cruise (though I would need to see what kind of food they would have first). They have a little snack bar on there that you can buy popcorn, small snack, soda and some adult beverages. Our young children loved the experience as well. On the way you will pass a small mining town that is fun to check out for a few hours before or after your cruise. We plan on taking out of town guests with us whenever they visit.

This boat ride is reasonably priced and just the right amount of time, 90 minutes. You get to see parts of the lake which you cannot see by car. It isn't the Grand Canyon, but the scenery is very impressive, probably more so if you do not live in the Southwest (which I do). We saw bighorn sheep silhouetted on the tops of the cliffs and a nest of bald eagles. The captain and crew were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this boat ride.
