Everything was terrific. The crew does a great job in making you feel welcome. The meal was terrific, too. The scenery was fantastic and we saw some wildlife. I'd go again on the next day if they had the same cruise. Again, a very nice evening cruise.

This cruise takes you along breathtaking rugged beauty. Wild sheep can be seen on top of the steep cliffs. Bald eagle 's nest is also visible at one point of cruise. Narrator on board boat is very knowledgeable and entertaining.

We've done the Dolly Steamboat a few times. Great to take out of town visitors & include a stop at Tortilla Flats. You can make your reservation online and they also accept "walk-on" reservations based on availability. Even though you pre-book, you'll still need to arrive early to get your boarding group. If you want a "premium" spot, this is... More

My hubby and I had never taken this cruise before and we were very pleased. Everything was so laid back and very easy and relaxed from making the reservation right through to getting back to the dock at the end of the cruise. The staff was very attentive and personable. The food was delicious and you sure didn't leave hungry!... More

This is so different than anything else in the state that it's great as a laid back, enjoy the view and take it easy, experience. We went on the 1 1/2 hour "nature" cruise and enjoyed it very much. The weather was perfect (85 degrees, and sunny -- of course). A couple of caveats, however: 1. Though paved, the road... More

The crew is nice and professional, the boat is clean, scenery is gorgeous and the food is great. Really you won't get a better deal then the Dolly. Anytime I have family coming I'm bringing them here. This whole area is... More

The wife and I had a great time on board. They have a snack bar and restroom on board. I suffer from motion sicknesses, however, I did not suffer any symptoms. It was a smooth ride even though it was a windy day. The narration was clear and informative. We saw bighorn sheep and some birds of prey. I would... More

We took two Mother's for Mother's Day and they raved about the scenery and help all the way home. We also invited another couple and they are going to tell their kids to bring their families. We saw a huge Ram onto of the highest hill. We also got a lot of History from the Captain of the ship.. We... More

In my group from Velda Rose United Methodist Church in Mesa, we had 34 people who took this trip on Saturday, May 13th. We had a ball! Only 5 minutes into the trip we were greeted by about 5-7 big horn sheep standing on the rocks near the coastline. The weather was beautiful and the captain and crew took excellent... More
