Sightseeing and Dinner Steamboat Cruises on Arizona's Beautiful Canyon Lake
Nestled in the heart of the Superstition Mountains lies spectacular Canyon Lake, home of the Dolly Steamboat. Continuing a tradition of cruising since 1925, the Dolly Steamboat now cruises the secluded inner waterways of this beautiful lake.
View the majestic desert big horn sheep, bald eagles and a host of other wildlife, water fowl and birds. Experience the unique ambiance that is created by the sounds of plying through the waters of Canyon Lake. Listen as your captain recounts the legends and lore of the mysterious Superstition Mountains. Expect to be treated with outstanding service and personal attention to your every need. Feel free to ask questions, move about and mingle with the crew.
So join us on the Dolly Steamboat for an unforgettable “mini- vacation” and see for yourself why there’s nothing quite like a ride on Arizona’s Dolly Steamboat. We look forward to showing you what some call the Junior Grand Canyon.
Our dinner cruises offer all of the grandeur of the daily cruise plus the ambiance of the twilight. Observe Canyon Lake wildlife as they settle in for the evening. A twilight dinner cruise aboard the Dolly is an experience you'll never forget. You'll take a "Mark Twain" voyage, while you relax and admire the breathtaking scenery.
